Why do I need a marketing firm?

  • An outside marketing perspective can illuminate new opportunities
  • Building media relationships is time consuming – a marketing and PR firm will have those relationships in place
  • Outsourcing your marketing team can be cost-effective
  • Take advantage of consultants’ connections and collective past
  • Selling yourself or your own product doesn’t always come naturally
  • A dedicated marketing team remains focused on achieving your business goals
  • The external marketing and PR resources that a firm has access to are
    typically not cost-effective for a business to purchase
  • Demonstrate return on investment to your CEO with professional access reports
