The Hidden Cost Savings of Working with an Agency | 3Q Digital

Digital Marketing Strategy

In today’s digital marketing era, without advertising your products/services online, it is almost impossible to gain more customers and grow your business.

As marketing budgets expand, brands face a dilemma: should they hire an in-house team that is completely embedded in their business, or partner with an agency who specializes in their essential marketing channels?

For medium-sized businesses, the numbers are tricky and the dilemma is bigger: can a small in-house team handle a modest budget spread over the complex marketing landscape and is it worth the cost of the team itself?

In this whitepaper, 3Q Digital dug deeper into today’s digital marketing landscape to help you understand its potential for transformative business growth — or for under-performing spend. In addition, the whitepaper covers the financial considerations that businesses often overlook in calculating their most efficient means of managing their digital marketing.
