When you sit down to figure out your online marketing strategy, do you worry about making mistakes? Does it feel like there are all these strange, esoteric, frankly counterintuitive rules that don’t seem to make much sense?
It’s that way for many people when they do their own marketing.
Indeed, it’s true of some folks who are just starting out in the digital marketing space.
The truth is that many lessons are hard-learned.
You have to fail before you can succeed.
However, as a small business owner, you don’t want to have to spend much time “failing.” indeed, as it’s your money and job on the line (as well as those of so many others) you want to keep the “failing” portion to a minimum.

Someone On Your Side
This article goes into whether to hire someone “in-house” or to work with a marketing agency. While there are many benefits and drawbacks to both, in our reading, he comes down more on the side of hiring an agency.
For one, it’s because “you’ll get access to an entire team of marketing professionals with an array of expertise.” Moreover, “the reality is that working with an agency is less expensive than having in-house marketing experts.”
By having someone like that on your side, you can avoid plenty of errors, common and otherwise. For help with this and so much else, you can schedule a remote marketing consulting in Los Angeles session with Danny Star at (213) 457-3250.
