Choosing the right digital agency.

It's important to choose the right digital agency for your internet marketing. Choose the right one and you will be working with them for a long time.

As you know, every man and his dog can build you a website these days, everyone knows someone who can do it on the cheap. Why spend thousands of dollars when your friend knows someone who only paid a couple of hundred?

Well think about it for a while. The internet is a level playing field for all business of all types and it gives every business an amazing opportunity to represent itself professionally, to me it seems a completely wasted opportunity to get a cheap website that really does look, well, cheap. We all know companies that have spent more money on business cards and letterheads than on their website. This really is a false economy.

You only get one chance to make a first impression and you really should make the most of that opportunity. Your website could and often will be the first impression someone gets of your business and it needs to impress, it needs to make the visitor want to explore past the first page and find out about your business and the products or services you have to offer. It needs to inspire the visitor to contact you to with a view to doing business.

Your digital agency needs to take the time to understand your business, your competitors and your target market before it can begin to formulate a plan.

Once your website is built you should be completely happy with it in every way or you shouldn't be signing off on the project and sending it live. Good enough just isn't good enough and your digital agency should take the time to get it just right.

Once live, the job of the digital agency is to get targeted traffic to your website through search engine optimisation. This is a long term strategy that, if successful, will see your website in front of people when they are searching for the products and services your business has to offer. This is where you start to get a return on your investment, in fact in many cases a single contract from a new client can be enough to justify the investment you have made.

Search engine marketing may also have a role to play if you are looking to get an immediate return on your investment.

You should know your contact at the digital agency on first name terms and have an ongoing working relationship with them so that as things change in the market place they are there with you every step of the way. The internet is no different to any other medium in as much as your online campaign may need to be tweaked as the market changes and your digital agency should be there to react to the new market conditions and help you stay ahead of your competition.

So, in summary, get a fantastic looking website, it's ridiculous to settle for anything less and then make sure your digital agency has the knowhow to get your website in front of potential customers when they are looking for you products or services.
