Choosing The Right Marketing Agency: Marketing Execution vs Marketing Strategy

If you pretty much know what marketing you need to do and how it is going to be accomplished then most likely you need some type of marketing agency to do it for you. Depending on what the activities are, you will choose a different type of agency. For example, if you are more likely to be doing TV, radio or magazine advertising you will likely need a traditional advertising agency. If it sits more in the digital realm, with a lot of Google AdWords or YouTube commercials, then a digital advertising agency is probably for you. Alternatively, you may simply need a graphic designer to bring your ideas to life.
