- People within agencies are industry experts, therefore keep up to date with all the latest marketing trends, SEO updates, algorithm updates and everything in between. Our experts know exactly what will work for your business and will ensure you’re up to date with the latest best practice and your competition.

Do You Need A New Digital Marketing Agency?
If you’re currently working with a digital agency but are thinking about what could be done better, perhaps we can help.
As mentioned earlier, it might just be time for a fresh outlook on your business. An agency might have delivered results when they first came on board, but maybe their strategies aren’t working for your business anymore. If you’re considering a change, ask yourself the following questions:
- Is the agency delivering on your objectives?
- Are you seeing the ROI you would like?
- Do you enjoy working with the agency?
If you answered no to any of these questions it might be time to switch agencies.
Signs It’s Time To Part Ways
Are you unsure about switching to a new agency? If so, then look out for any of the following signs.
Your Agency Isn’t Transparent
Being open and honest brings trust between two parties. Do you get clear reporting? Can you talk to your account manager over the phone when you need to? Your agency should regularly update you on campaign performance, trends, budget spend, additional costs, etc. A good agency can clearly show you how they have used your investment and the results of this. No strategic plan
No Strategic Plan
Every SEO agency should have a strategic plan on how they intend to improve your current rankings and key marketing metrics. Do you have the following information from your agency?
- How do they intend to establish authority for your business within the industry?
- What strategy will they use to improve user experience to drive visitors through the marketing funnel?
- Do your SEO objectives fit in with the overall brand vision?
- How will they get your business on the first page of the results?
- Do they have a content strategy to drive keyword and traffic growth?
The Agency Doesn’t Meet Your Business Needs
For an effective digital marketing strategy, an agency must first understand your business goals. To successfully increase bottom line and drive quality traffic and conversions they must be on board with your brand vision and delivering the results you want to see.
When an agency fully understands your brand it will shine through in the content they produce for you. Your target audience will expect to arrive on your site and find clear, easy-to-digest content that answers any questions they might have, in line with your brand voice.
Here are a few questions you need to ask when analysing your website content:
- Does my content provide authentic, quality information?
- Is it clear from the offset what the user will find on each page?
- Is my content engaging / useful / informative?
- Would you be happy to put your name to the content?
