Why choosing a Digital Marketing Freelancer?
As a business owner, you might have handled your marketing by yourself throughout the first years. However, now you would like your business to grow faster with a better Return On Investment (ROI). Now, it might be time to admit, you need a hand with your marketing. Seeing that you’ve started the process of looking for some digital marketing help, you might have noticed that there are different resources available. You can choose to be helped by a digital marketing agency, or by a digital marketing freelancer.
I might be impartial, but after working on both sides, I think these are the reasons why you should hire me, over an agency.
8 Reasons to Choose a Digital Marketing Freelancer over a Digital Marketing Agency
Tailored & Attentive Service
A digital marketing agency normally has full-time employees for which they need to pay a salary every month, along with their monthly costs. Sometimes, you might get less efficiency for a higher price.
I like making money too, but in my case, I work hourly, efficiently, with your best interest in mind. I tailor the price based on your project and I am flexible with payments too.
Agencies might often be less close to you, your goals, and your projects.
I like to treat my clients as I used to treat my colleagues. I like to be transparent and selective. If I see that you have different expectations from what my service can offer I won’t hesitate to let you know that you are not in the right place. I like working closely with my clients, blending with their team to feel part of the family while understanding the business goals as they were mine and adapt them through time.
Tailored & Attentive Service
A digital marketing agency is used to handle various projects at the same time, and normally, you don’t get to choose who to work with. Otherwise, you are assigned to a random person based on the size of your business and your goals.
When you choose my services, you know that you are also choosing me and you have security about who you’ll work with and the skills you are dealing with. I normally balance my time and choose the projects based on my availability, therefore you have my full attention once I decide to take care of your goals.
Agencies often have systems and technologies they rely on, often working with them for years without any changes or adaptability to the client.
I am constantly updating. Working with many businesses of different sizes and sectors, the type of technology, systems, or solutions I use are constantly developing, changing, and adapting to the client I have in front of me. Especially, I will be un-bias over the solutions I offer.
Agencies normally work in traditional office hours. You might be lucky and find those exception working during odd hours or be ready for emergencies, but it is rarely the case.
As a digital marketing freelancer, I can set my own schedule during the week, which I normally adapt to my clients’ necessities. I never turn off my phone, being always reachable, if you have any issue I am always just a text away. Even when I go on holiday, you will know it weeks in advance, and I always take my laptop with me in case any client would need me.
As we could imagine, agencies rely on employees and have o think about their happiness and benefits for them to remain. However, when during a long-lasting relationship your key-person leaves, the work might be passed on to a new person, sometimes leading to inconsistency and perks on the way.
I am my own brand, I won’t leave you. Otherwise, I will optimise my work to create a long-lasting relationship and work together to maximise your business results.
