Are you a part of the 80% who has partnered with nightmare marketing employees, agencies, and freelancers? All of which have proven to create sub satisfactory output, charge outrageous hourly prices, and operate with the principles of “mystery is margin”?
If this describes your scenario, it's time to meet WebMarkets.
Not all marketing and advertising professionals, agencies, or freelancers are created equal. Creative strategy, experience, and grit go a long way.

Develop Unique Strategies
It does matter who you work with. Team fit is a big deal, and so is experience.
Do you like who you work with? Are they the best for the job?
Not all shoes fit. Not all shapes go in the same square hole. So why sign up for a cookie-cutter solution? In my experience, a one size fits all approach to business strategies, especially in the marketing and advertising world, do not work. Here’s why:
- Not all businesses are the same. Not all opportunities are the same. This is where a consultant needs to advise the correct strategy based on gaps and opportunities.
- There is no silver bullet. There is no tactic that will deliver incredible ROI without strategic planning (or something like that?).
- Find unique competitive advantages and stand out.
Cost Structure & Recommendations
In the digital marketing world, there are two types of cost structures. We call them the Traditional vs Partner structure. And oh my, how they are different.
- Billed Hourly (Like a Lawyer)
- Start-Up and Variable Costs
- One-Off Campaigns
- No Ongoing Strategies
- Charged for Variable Account Management
- Set Monthly Cost (Like an employee, except you don’t have employee onboarding, training, benefits and payroll tax costs)
- No Start-Up and No Variable Costs
- No Hourly Costs
- Thorough Campaigns with Analysis & Reporting
- Ongoing Strategies
- Dedicated Account Management
Budget Based Pricing Models Do Not Work in Marketing
If I were to tell you, I charged you twice as much as I did my last client because I believe you have a larger budget, how would you feel? This is called budget based pricing, and it just isn't effective, nor is it moral.
Transparency is essential for all success. It is the undeniable aspect in discovering the root of any problem.
Would you approve a $3,000 advertising spend if only $1,500 of it was actually spent? Of course you wouldn't. Unfortunately, many advertising agencies take your $3,000 in advertising spend, and then turn around and spend $1,500 of it on the actual advertising and secretly pocket the other $1,500 for hidden costs such as advertising campaign oversight, campaign creation, campaign management, campaign optimization, account management meeting times, overhead costs, and so on. See the problem here?
At WebMarkets, we are extremely transparent and set up shared advertising accounts, to view budget and performance data metrics, in real-time. All of our pricing is transparent, which allows our clients to focus on being wildly successful.
Hourly Model Trick
Say for instance I told you it would take two hours to update your marketing. Then, I went ahead and sent you a bill for 4.5 hours, without your authorized permission. Well, this happens quite often and is known in the industry as “mystery is margin”.
So at WebMarkets, we’ve done away with the hourly model, because it simply doesn't work.
We Construct Marketing Budgets Differently
A wildly successful marketing budget has these key ingredients:
- Reverse Engineer Break Even Points and Success Metrics
- Measure a 3X-15X ROAS and ROI
- Incorporate the Correct Marketing Mix
- Is Not a Shot in the Dark
- Has Enough Fuel for the Fire
- Transparent Advertising Accounts
- Utilize Data to Leverage Future Growth
Benchmarks & Metrics
Data doesn't lie, ever. With this being said, effective reporting on what works and what needs improvement is vital to developing a successful marketing campaign. It is within the data that you can extract valuable insights and make educated decisions.
Reliability isn't just a word, it's the key ingredient.
How many of you have hired an employee, contractor or agency, just to watch their passion fizzle away and no call, no show when you need them most? What happens when your one marketing employee takes a scheduled week off? What happens when your business becomes landlocked on one employee’s strategies?
Team Driven Strategies
Being reliable is being there when you're needed the most. At WebMarkets, we operate in teams to run successful client relationships and profitable marketing campaigns. This provides a wealth of knowledge, strategy, and concepts to be shared, while also providing no huge gaps in customer service and support.
When you pass the buck, success doesn't arrive.
One of the key factors to a successful marketing campaign and client relationship is recognizing necessary action. In the digital marketing world, there are many opportunities for success, and error. In today’s technological world, human beings are the driving factor to the path of success. With this, comes human error. And it's with great accountability, do the best humans rise up during crunch time and take responsibility to correct any errors and drive the campaign towards success.
