Hiring a Marketing Company Makes Sense

Without marketing, your business would most likely fail to attract the volume of customers needed in order for its survival. A worrying statistic is that just over 50% of businesses fail within their first year, therefore hiring a marketing firm will give you the best chance of success.

Many marketing companies are available to hire, whether you’re interested in social media setup, website development, photography, logo design or traditional advertising. Many business owners may fail to recognise, for example, that social media can be an incredibly powerful marketing tool that provides a cheap and effective way of advertising. A marketing consultant would be able to provide guidance on the best way to market through social media depending on your industry.

Your business may take up a lot of time and you may have little time to focus on aspects such as marketing. A firm would be happy to help you manage your social media saving you much needed time. Red Forest Marketing provide an excellent social media management service and will update daily on your behalf. We find Twitter to be the best social network for B2B. On behalf of clients using Twitter, we would do follow backs, answering direct messages and tweeting on relevant information relating to your business. Facebook is better used for the B2C market. A marketing company would be able to maintain multiple social networks on your behalf. In the digital age, being on a social network makes sense and is a free marketing tool that has the potential to be very powerful if used correctly. Many consumers are now looking at the social media accounts of a business before buying their products so it’s vital to have social media platforms in place. Our Social Media management packages are very affordable for new businesses and we offer a free consultation to tell you about the best strategy for you.

A website is almost an essential part of any business. A marketing firm will be able to provide SEO services in order to put your business website higher up the rankings on major websites such as Google. This is vital to many firms who want to be seen among the top ranks, and above competitors. Many marketing companies can advise on changes that can be made to your website in order to make it more attractive to potential customers. Many customers will judge a company by its website, for example, if it’s hard to read, cluttered and full of text then people will go to your competitors. If the website is neat and tidy, people will be attracted to your website and more likely to buy from you. Many companies can build websites for a reasonable price. Our websites start from £400 which is an excellent price within the industry. We work with our clients very closely to develop the right template for them and develop all information and photos that will be required for building an excellent website.  

Photography is an excellent opportunity for a business to promote itself. You may consider adding photographs to your website, Instagram or local newspaper. A local company will be able to take photographs for you. High Resolution is a crucial factor in the world of HD we live in so a good camera is essential. We have heard stories from our clients who have taken photos for their website from their IPhones which is a massive mistake as well as creating a bad impression. The higher the quality, the more professional it looks. We charge £20 an hour for photography. We offer all photos on a disk afterwards and will provide a backup disk for you to keep as well.

Traditional advertising is slowly dying out and being replaced by online media such as social media. It is, however, still effective depending on your industry. Companies are available to design and distribute leaflets on your behalf, as this can be a daunting task especially if you’re delivering to a lot of homes or businesses. Designing leaflets can also be a challenging task, however, many companies exist who are able to design professional and eye-catching leaflets on your behalf. We charge £100 for the design of your leaflets and then a small charge of £60 per 1000 houses you wish to distribute too.


To sum up, a marketing company can be an excellent asset to your company as many struggle to go it alone without some assistance. At Red Forest Marketing, we offer all the services discussed with very reasonable prices. Social media and websites are a part of the digital age we cannot ignore with almost every company being benefitted by the use of them. Social media is a free marketing tool which has the potential to be very powerful and a website can also have the same effect. Photography is excellent for leaflets or your website, however high resolution pictures are crucial for a professional look. Traditional advertising is slowly dying, however, can still prove effective.
