Should I appoint an advertising agency?

A good advertising agency will be able to work with you to deliver a quality campaign that you wouldn’t necessarily have the skills or time to develop yourself in-house.

So if you are planning on making a push through several different marketing channels, hiring an advertising agency to develop a campaign will often deliver you solid results.


However, for start-ups, outsourcing advertising is often expensive and simply out of reach. Some marketing experts say it’s better, at least in the early days, to develop a campaign yourself to save costs.


Instead, some experts say you should hire a consultant to come into the business and help you develop a campaign of

your own. This will ensure you receive some basic training in advertising, and will ensure you keep costs low during the vital start-up days.
