Why do clients hire agencies? Sounds like a simple question, but not always a one clients consciously ask when they start their search. Generally it’s because they need advertising or marketing support and don’t have internal resources to create promotional campaigns.
But it goes much deeper than that. Clients hire a marketing or advertising agency because they need their marketing expertise. They need an outside, (aka…hopefully objective), opinion of how to embark on employing a solid strategy for their brand. Here’s a good philosophy to live by – do what you do and do it well – and outsource the rest. But remember – a really successful client-agency relationship is as a true partnership where both sides are invested in the success of the company – not just as a vendor. You’re not buying copy paper – you’re buying brain power. And there’s a value to that.
