Digital marketing has evolved into the most imperative way we connect with our target audience. 2024 and the years to come, will only continue to show us how important a digital marketing strategy is.

Technology, especially AI, and automation tools are advancing quickly, making the digital world more active than before. Despite these developments, the value of partnering with a professional digital agency like Media Rebel remains important.

Want your business to stand out online? You most certainly want to have a strong digital marketing plan. The best and surest ways to secure your position and voice in the digital space while also employing an expert strategy is by hiring a digital agency.

The Digital Marketing Evolution

Let’s be honest, digital marketing has come a long way! In the early days it was a simple banner ad or email campaign.

Over the years we have evolved into a more strategic approach. With several digital tactics and products to apply in digital marketing. Some tactics are: search engine marketing (SEM), Search engine optimization (SEO), social media content management and advertising, text marketing, email marketing, programmatic advertising, and much more!

AI is growing and changing how we strategize and market through social media, content marketing, planning, and strategizing. With a great deal of AI companies promising instant results and ease of performing digital marketing. We caution you when employing these companies.

While we are fans of AI and it has a good amount of benefits, it still has a way to go. Most of the AI technology that is out helps with the surface of the issues but it has limitations. It does not have the ability to deep dive into your analytics, audience, goals, objectives. Nor does it understand the same way a human does when optimizing or A/B testing.

Furthermore, the AI content you generate is not copyrighted. This is becoming problematic for businesses that do not want their post or content stolen.

how much does a digital agency cost

Digital Agency Cost

Cost can be a concern for some. Unfortunately, some agencies have created this stigma. Three main pricing structures for agencies: Hourly, Retainer and project based.

Hourly rates have a rather broad range of pricing, depending on the size and location of the agency. When working with an hourly agency, how they will keep track of their performance. Only agree to the number of hours you are comfortable spending. Keep in mind that you will also need to ensure that those hours still give you what you need in your digital marketing efforts.

Retainer based pricing is typically an estimated number of hours charged as a monthly fee. Most agencies will also charge an hourly rate for any extra work need outside the initial estimated hours. The agreements tend to last for a few months to a year.

Project based agencies require an upfront deposit and charge upon milestones. Milestone payments can be monthly, phase based, or on completion of a deliverables. Invoicing is typically on a set monthly schedule.

Media Rebel employs retainer and project based billing. This is dependent on our clients individual needs and budget.
