5 Reasons to Hire a Full-Service Marketing Agency

5 reasons to hire marketing firm

As a small business owner who wears multiple hats, most of your energy goes towards keeping your business afloat:

Financial Reports and Bookkeeping…

Team Management and Training…


IT Issues…

You don’t have the extra time to keep up with advertising and the marketing demands of your business are the least of your concerns. In fact, during times of crisis, marketing departments and services are usually the first to be cut from a small business.

Spoiler Alert: This is a common mistake that leads to a slow or nonexistent sales pipeline. No buzz about your business = no results!

That’s where a full-service marketing agency comes in.

Hiring an in-house marketing professional or team is expensive and often you still have to outsource pieces of your marketing. Instead, finding the right full-service marketing agency to partner with will save you time, money and stress so you can focus on running and growing your business at a time when it needs your full attention.

What are the benefits of hiring a full-service marketing agency?

Custom marketing strategies

When you work with the right full-service firm, you can create a custom marketing strategy that best fits your needs without wasting time, resources and money. Unlike some marketing agencies that follow a one-size-fits-all approach by running generalized campaigns for all their clients, our team at Collective Alternative crafts comprehensive marketing strategies that are as unique as your thumbprint. We work with what you have and deliver results without pressuring you to put money into tactics you can’t afford or don’t need.

Expert marketing advice

The marketing world moves FAST. You already have enough on your plate — you shouldn’t have to try and keep up with the latest marketing trends. Instead of putting the pressure on yourself to stay relevant, let a team of creative minds that’s up to date on all the new technologies and trends do it for you. A full-service marketing agency will utilize its entire team and extensive industry knowledge to brainstorm new ideas and opportunities for you. At Collective Alternative, our team is constantly assessing the latest upgrades and insight and works together in a collaborative environment that allows us to bounce ideas off each other and create unique marketing campaigns for our clients.

Trustworthy agency-client relationships

The right agency will treat your business like its own and work hard for it. At Collective Alternative, we are committed to Making Business Personal® by truly getting to know your business and your goals so we can implement the best tactical plan. The close connections we make with our clients — and constantly working for their success — lead to noticeable results and rewarding work.

Affordable marketing services

It’s rare to find people with every necessary skillset that a full-service marketing agency already has. Would you rather spend a salary’s worth of money on one individual who specializes in just one or two aspects of marketing, or pay an entire team of professionals less than a salary to cover all the bases? Instead of outsourcing new talent, stick with an experienced agency that can best help you make an impact.

Return on investment

Full-service marketing agencies put their money where their mouth is by constantly analyzing and reassessing their strategy to see what efforts have been effective. Then, based on research and results, they will fine-tune it so it works better for your business. As experts in ROI, our team at Collective Alternative is passionate about gathering information and turning data into an actionable plan so our clients can grow their bottom line.

What does full-service mean?

As the name suggests, full-service marketing agencies have the capacity to do everything from email marketing and lead generation to paid advertising and search engine optimization. Instead of focusing on just creative, full-service agencies handle strategic planning and other services that don’t fall under the standard creative umbrella. Most full-service agencies serve clients within a specific industry, but at Collective Alternative, we work with businesses of all sizes across every industry so we can truly optimize your marketing and drive the conversion you need to put more money in your pocket.

How do I get started with the right agency?

No matter how your business is doing, it’s never too late to invest in a marketing agency for the continued exposure and success of your business. A quick Google search will produce countless agency names and options, and it can be overwhelming to choose the best fit for you. Start narrowing down your options by seeing which agencies are full-service, work best with small businesses and create customized marketing plans to suit your needs. Then, start a conversation to gain a better understanding of how the agencies you’re considering will mesh with your business.

Unlike standard agencies, our team at Collective Alternative is devoted to providing value and return on your marketing investment. We will do everything in our power to help your small business make an impact by creating a unique marketing strategy that’s customized to your exact needs.

We offer a free, no-obligation strategy session for any prospective clients who want to sit down and talk about their needs with us. If you’re ready to leap into your next big business venture and experience The CA Way, schedule a strategy session today!
