Questions to Ask a Prospective Digital Marketing Service

It's always good to expect results from digital marketing service, but results can vary.


  1. For businesses that are interested in opening new avenues of internet marketing, a company will likely need the services of a digital marketing agency. However, because this type of marketing is so popular, a business will likely find many different options. Fortunately, there are some questions that businesses can ask to help narrow down the options.

    First off, there is a term in digital marketing known as KPI which stands for key performance indicators and these are used to measure a digital marketing agency's effectiveness. While there are many, it's good to know what KPI's a marketing agency uses. Do they use traffic to a website as a KPI, source of the traffic, conversions, the amount of money it takes to generate a new lead or the amount of money a converted lead generate for the business. Most agencies use multiple KPI's, but some only use one. A good rule of thumb is, the more, the better.

    Digital marketing agencies often delegate the work they have to do for clients by outsourcing a lot of the actual marketing to cheaper overseas services. While this isn't always a bad thing, it is good to know who will be handling a businesses account. If they fail to notify their clients that they outsource, it can bring into question what else they may not be telling their clients.

    It's always good to expect results from digital marketing service, but results can vary. The best way to spot an honest agency is to ask them what sort of results can be expected in 6 months. The reason for asking this question is that the answer can be different for each client. If they refuse to promise the moon, the digital marketing service might be a keeper. If the service says they can take a website, product, or service provided online to the top in a short period of time, they may be guilty of saying whatever the client wants to hear, even if it isn't true.

    While there are plenty of other questions to ask, these questions mentioned above will get you moving towards finding a reputable online marketing agency. It could take some time to sift through all the options for digital marketing from Jacksonville FL web design services to a dedicated marketing agency, but its the kind of work that can pay off in spades.
