If you’re here, you probably have questions about getting your marketing done. Awesome! Here are some of the most common questions we’re asked.
The best way to get your specific questions answers is to ask us (link to contact us page). Don’t worry – we don’t bite. We don’t pressure you. And we don’t like brussel sprouts. Do you?
Our name says it all. When it comes to your marketing, we ______________ ____________ ______________. Did you pass the test?
Imagine having your social media, content marketing, email marketing, direct mail marketing, video marketing, local marketing, reputation management and more done every single day. Would your business benefit? Heck ya!
Look, spending your time on social media is NOT a good use of your time. Much less the content curation, creation, posting, engagement and analysis required to get it done. Not to mention all of the different social media platforms. And that’s just ONE piece of your marketing plan.
If you were to hire a full-time marketing director, according to Google the average salary is over $120K. That full-time person will get benefits, take time off, and will NOT be an expert in every area of marketing.
When you partnersource with GiD Marketing – yes, we will be partners you will get a team of marketing experts committed to your success and growth.
Instead of having 6 different vendors helping you with marketing, you get everything under one roof. We are your full-service outsourced marketing team.
So glad you asked! When you partnersource with GiD Marketing you get a marketing plan customized to you and your business. No vanilla, cookie-cutter marketing here.
While everyone else is probably telling you to run Facebook, Google and YouTube ads, we tell you not to. For almost everyone we speak with, they’re not working anyways. You must have the foundational pieces in place before you ever spend a dime on advertising. Once those are in place, then it could possibly make sense to do online advertising to scale. But to start, NO!
Our approach is very guerilla-like, but simple. We get your marketing into ACTION:
Schedule a free 30-minute marketing breakthrough strategy session and we’ll send you a free copy of Stacey’s book “Small Business Marketing Made EZ” that outlines the ACTION Marketing System.
Yes and no. Seriously, it really depends on your business.
If you’re just starting out, it is many times better for you to do your own marketing. One, it will help you keep your costs low. Two, it will help you understand the market and why people are doing business with you.
Outsourcing your marketing can be a great decision when:
- You’ve got too much to do and not enough time to do it
- You find yourself doing spaghetti marketing – yeh we see the stains on your wall because you don’t have a concerted strategy behind anything you’re doing
- You realize you’re chasing shiny objects (Look – SQUIRELL!) Seriously - just because it’s new doesn’t mean you should do it)
- You’re growing and need a team that can get your marketing done
Our motto is “Do what you do best, outsource the rest.” If you agree with that statement, a done-for-you marketing team is worth investigating.
What is your time worth? Seriously. Figure it out right now.
What is one additional customer, client, patient, or member worth to you? Figure it out right now.
If you have someone who can do your marketing better, at a lower cost, which frees up your (or your staff’s) time to focus on getting new business, why wouldn’t you?
Our clients don’t look at outsourcing as a “cost” or “expense” – they look at it as an INVESTMENT. That’s how we want you to look at it as well. There should always be a positive ROI.
Maybe. It depends on the services we’re providing for you.
We are a staff of 7 and only 2 people on our team are overseas. Our perspective is we want the best people for the job. If that happens to be outside of the United States, we’re ok with that.
That’s the million-dollar question. But don’t worry, it doesn’t cost a million dollars.
Since no two organizations are alike, we’re going to answer this question the best we can.
In general, our packages range from $1,200/month to $5,000/month. All GiD Marketing clients receive a plan, budget, reporting and regularly planned meetings regardless of their investment level.
Absolutely not! Your outsourced marketing team is an extension of your staff.
We’re just not sitting at the desk right next to you.
We’ve been doing outsourcing for over 30 years. Our motto is “Communicate a lot, communicate often.”
You’ll know exactly what’s going on with your marketing as everything we do is tracked and managed in our project management system, TeamWork.
You’ll have dashboards to see real-time analytics. In addition, you will have regularly scheduled meetings to review progress toward goals and ensure we’re on track to achieving them.
