Are you using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other social media accounts to market your business? How is it working out for you? How much time do you spend online each day reaching and interacting with your clients and potential clients? Although most social media accounts are free to create, a large time investment is required.

Hiring a social media agency will help your business reach and obtain customers quicker than if you go it alone. A seasoned agency will partner with you and your business and help you transform your efforts into dollar signs.

how to hire a social media agencyHere are 3 reasons it’s time to hire a social media agency:

1. Your competition is using social media to reach potential customers. As a small business owner, I’m sure you know who your competitors are. Have you checked out what they’re doing online? Check out what their Facebook Business Page, Twitter account, LinkedIn Company Page, Pinterest account and any other place they hang out online. Do they have lots of followers? Are they talking to their community? On the other hand, if you don’t find your competition on social media, now is the perfect time to carve out a niche.

2. A social agency has experience. We know you don’t want to look silly online and that’s where a seasoned agency comes in handy. Personally, I’ve worked in social media for years and I’ve already made just about every mistake you can make. Additionally, a social media agency will show you how to actually get clients from your social media efforts. Here at SHIFT Digital, we’ve partnered with businesses in every industry and we’ve seen each and every one have success. There’s no point using social media unless it makes you more money – that’s always the most important thing in my books.

3. You need to focus on running your business. Staying on top of all the new social media sites and changes is hard to do. It’s even harder when you have a business to grow. Hiring a social media agency allows you to reach potential leads online while you do what you do best. We love what we do, and yes, we’re a little obsessed. We love finding creative new ways to reach clients.

All in all, hiring a social media agency to partner with your business is a great way to reach clients and potential clients. Before you start interviewing potential agencies to work with, check out your competition online and see what they’re doing. Ask people in your network if they knew any good social media agencies to partner with.
