15 Digital Marketing Service Red Flags

Your digital campaigns are instrumental in driving sales, engagement and retention for your brand. The digital marketing service providers you hire to create and run these campaigns hold your business’ fate in their hands. It seems to be getting harder and harder to find excellent digital marketing service experts willing to work for you. As such, more and more brands are forced to turn to freelancing marketers and marketing agencies to outsource these projects.

Lucky for you, outsourcing your digital marketing activities can create a lot of value for your business - you just need to be careful about which digital marketing service providers you hire, how they work, and what happens to the digital campaigns upon completion. What’s a brand to do?

You can find many skilled and talented digital marketing service providers online willing to work with your company as outsourced help. However, talent alone does not indicate that a hire will get the job done successfully, and in line with your business’ vision and goals.

As such, if any new digital marketing service hire has already signed on the dotted line, yet demonstrates any of the red flags below, you’re likely working with the wrong digital marketing freelancer or agency for your business. In such a case, finding a way to swiftly end the contract is imperative to your business’ survival and success.
