Your company needs three things: Social Media Management, Website Maintenance (or creation if you don’t have one) and Graphic Design Services.
FACT #1: If you have the time to do these things yourself, you are not operating at an ideal success or efficiency level
Your business needs to be booming. And if it is, you should not have the time to focus on these three things unless you are a… marketing/digital agency like ourselves (in which case… you wouldn’t be here). If business isn’t booming, you need to focus on what you do best and let us do what we do best. Trying to learn these three things while running a business is not efficient. Either you are an expert in regards to your service and/or product or you quit and focus on digital agency services by investing the time and money. We recommend the first option.
FACT #2: A digital agency is the most cost effective option
Imagine for a moment you decide to hire a graphic designer, a web developer and a social media manager. You could hire a “I wear 20 hats” designer. But, would you like your mechanic to be your gardener as well? Would you mind if your doctor were also the police chief of your town? When push comes to shove, one person performing multiple jobs will have to sacrifice quality in some facet or another. Regardless, let’s analyze both scenarios.
1 person, 3 jobs:
They will not charge minimum wage and they will not perform at effective levels across the board.
Cost: $600/week + Workman’s comp + Insurance (If applicable) + Time (hiring, managing, and firing if need be)
3 persons, 3 jobs:
Let’s pretend we live in world where digital techs charge little more than minimum wage (this is pure fantasy by the way, designers range anywhere from 30 to 100+ an hour).
Graphic Designer Cost: $500/week + Workman’s comp + Insurance (If applicable) + Time (hiring, managing, and firing if need be)
Web Guy: $500/week + Workman’s comp + Insurance (If applicable) + Time (hiring, managing, and firing if need be)
Social Media Manager: $500/week + Workman’s comp + Insurance (If applicable) + Time (hiring, managing, and firing if need be)
Total Cost: $1500/week + Workman’s comp + Insurance (If applicable) + Time (hiring, managing, and firing if need be)
Even if it were part time, half of that is still $3000 dollars a month plus your time and regulations. You are now dealing with three techs who will need sick days, holidays and management. An alternative is you hire a digital agency that has all the resources you need and provides with efficiency and quality while reducing your workload so that you can focus on what you do best.
Example Pricing: $250/week + nothing else
