Testimonials – You should check to see what people are saying about a prospective marketing agency you’re thinking of hiring. They are often the best gauge of how they perform. You can look at testimonials on their website but also be sure to check out their Google ratings. Being that they come from business owners just like you, those cannot be faked.

Agency Type – Different businesses have different needs. A startup looking for some social media attention might be looking for a different type of agency than, say, a fast-growing brand needing a boost across the board. This information is outlined below, coupled with the agency’s specialties and top-performing sectors.

Portfolio – While the portfolio isn’t everything, if a marketing firm can show it’s done quality work in the past, it can likely do the same for you. We’ve analyzed the type of clients each firm has and what they’ve accomplished.

We hope this helps you in your search!
