Online Marketing Services
Back in the day (early 2000s), it was sufficient to create a “brochure” website and just make sure you updated the information at least yearly. Fast forward to today, and online businesses have infinite choices and opportunities about how to market, advertise and sell their wares to their target audience, at a fraction of the cost of traditional channels. In fact, the Internet brilliantly opens up “long-tail” niche markets and enables everyone to compete on a relatively even playing field.
Online marketing consists of utilizing free, paid-for and partner channels, including setting up a blog, building an email distribution list, sharing your content on social media networks, integrating affiliate income placements, and paying for advertising on search engines, social networks, etc.
Delving into online marketing can be a little overwhelming or intimidating to someone who is just getting started. Why not sign up for a quick consultation to get a feel for your options, and then invest in the creation of an Online Marketing Plan to ensure all of your initiatives fit into your business’ overall vision and objectives.
If you already have an online marketing strategy in place and are looking for a company to take on some of the tasks, we can do that too!

Like any business initiative, you need to consider the benefits of outsourcing versus doing the work yourself. Specifically for online projects, the benefits of outsourcing the work includes:
- It’s faster to get things done.
There is a learning curve to technical tasks. It depends on whether it is a task you need to know how to do yourself and how often you intend to engage in such a task. For example, designing your website is likely a one-time activity that you only do every 2-5 years. This would be a good candidate to outsource. On the other hand, if you plan to publish a weekly blog article, it may be well worth your time to learn how to post them yourself so that you have more control over this important and timely task. For example, it can be more efficient entering the draft articles directly into your website content management system like WordPress, than write them elsewhere and transfer them over.
- Cuts down on frustration.
At some point you’ll run into a challenge that can stall the project and add hours to your work time – if you are able to figure it out at all. You need to weigh the costs of spending your valuable time navigating technical issues, or just spending the money to get it done right by an experienced technical consultant.
- Access to advanced technical skills.
- Collaboration :: working as a team creates better ideas.
It is beneficial to bounce your ideas off a creative specialist because he or she can point you in the right direction and offer suggestions or efficiencies for things you would never have thought about.
- A better eye for professional creative design.
Sometimes something you think looks okay breaks some design rules or just doesn’t look professional. For example, we’ve been called in for a second opinion where a person placed red text over a black background unknowingly causing difficulties for the vision-impaired and/or colour blind audience. (For some reason, this type of no-no often happens for PowerPoint presentations!) Alternatively, someone has chosen an outlandish or startling background colour and then doesn’t know why they don’t like their homemade website any longer. Choosing website and branding colours is comparable to choosing indoor paint colours: it is invigorating to choose bright and exciting colours… at first. Then you have to live with them for an extended period and you find yourself longing for something more subdued.
Again, it all comes back to your overall business vision and plan as to the right formula of tasks you need to do in-house versus externally.
