MARKETING IS TOO EXPENSIVE!
Marketing does not have to be expensive. There is an old adage that says: “you get what you pay for.” That is true to a certain extent, with marketing, there are many different things you can do.
You do not have to pay thousands, or even hundreds of thousands to get good, effective marketing. If you deal with a small marketing firm, you will receive personalized service at a lower price than if you’d gone to a large marketing firm.
At On the Level Marketing, we sit down with our potential clients to find out their needs and what their budget is, and then we work around that. We are not going to give away the farm, but we will do our best to work with you.
I PAID FOR MY LOGO. THEN HAD TO PAY TO GET ANOTHER COPY OF IT.
This should never be the case. Period! You have paid someone to create that logo. Once you have paid for the services you should own all rights to that logo. If a marketing agency doesn’t give you full rights to the logo, then that is a red flag.
When On The Level Marketing creates a logo for our clients, they get the logo in multiple formats and it is theirs. They own it, not On The Level Marketing. All we ask is that we can display a sample of the work, on our website, which in turn provides the business with additional advertising.
PAID FOR A WEBSITE, BUT CAN’T AFFORD MONTHLY MAINTENANCE
Again, On The Level Marketing is here to help you. If you are not wanting a monthly maintenance service for your site, and want to maintain it yourself, we are happy to walk you through how to keep the website updated.
Our philosophy is that we feel that if we treat our clients right, they will come back to us, and refer us. That is the best kind of advertising any business could ask for.
I DON’T NEED A MARKETING PERSON. I CAN DO IT MYSELF.
True. If you are a creative person and have knowledge of marketing, then you can do it yourself, but should you? I know, even for myself, it is always harder to market something you are close to. Can it be done? Sure, but how effective are you? Sometimes, when you are too close to a project you can’t see the trees beyond the forest. Not to mention, you have a business you are running. Do you really have the time? If you do is it quality marketing? Many times I go into a business and see homemade signs. Not only is it tacky to have a homemade sign, but a lot of times there are misspellings, etc.
At On The Level Marketing, marketing is our business. We can see things you can’t. If you have marketing knowledge, we will most certainly do our best to take your visions into account, but in the end, you hire us to do your marketing. You always have the option to decline a design or find a new marketing company.
