Is partnering with a digital marketing agency worth it?


Hi all!

I’ve been struggling to raise my domain’s referral traffic and ratings for months now. So far, my main reach methods were mostly limited to participating in socials and the occasional email sequencing campaign. While it got me some results, things seem to have started stagnating, safe for the holiday seasons that are too far between :slight_smile:

So, you think I should go for paid services related to promoting my site? My primary niche is outdoor/traveling.



I say go for it. I’ve seen way too many business owners hesitating to invest in digital marketing. And, okay, many things we can do by ourselves, and lots of them are free, but if you want some serious growth you should hire professionals. Some strategies that will bring you organic traffic and better rankings are quite demanding, and if not done properly, they might even have the opposite effect. Just be careful and read the reviews from previous clients and see if they have proven to be effective. Unrealistic promises are sort of common nowadays, I think they count on people not knowing what’s possible to achieve and how quickly.


Yeah, exactly. Inflated promises are the nb.1 reason why I haven’t been paying much attention to such brands so far.

Still, I should definitely start looking into off-page SEO growth methods. Everyone seems to shun link-building, but at the same time, everyone seems to keep on using it haha. That’s why I need an extra pair of hands to raise an action plan and start implementing it in earnest. The competition seems to be catching on a lot faster nowadays…

Anyway, thanks for your 2 cents :slight_smile:


HI this is Gulsha Negi
Well, Partnering with a digital marketing agency can be worth it, but it depends on several factors such as the agency’s experience and expertise, your business goals, and your budget.
Hope it can give you an idea.


If you are a beginner then it is better to run a marketing campaign for your website on your own. Yes, beginners usually don’t have enough budget to promote their sites so it is still better to try DIY SEO and digital marketing means.

Here are a few of my suggestions in this regard:

  • First of all, you need to adopt an off-page SEO strategy. You can build a variety of links like blogging, business listing and guest posting. This venture could be easy especially if you are good at writing.

  • After SEO, the next step should be digital marketing. You should design different graphics and display them on different social media platforms or relevant websites. As I noticed that your site is about travelling and outdoor activities you can use these travel banner templates and produce more engaging graphics. Probably, it will be free to post these banners on your own social media accounts but you need to pay a small amount if you are going to publish them on different websites and communities.

  • Similarly, email marketing could be an appealing approach to promote your products and services.


Hi, I ‘d recommend investing in paid services to promote your site, especially when it comes to promoting video content, that hope you have at your web. Because video content has become increasingly popular, and competition is tough. By working with a reputable video content company, you can take advantage of their expertise and experience to ensure your content is optimized for maximum engagement and reach. As someone in the outdoor/traveling niche, it’s crucial to stay ahead of the game and stand out from the crowd, so paid services can definitely help you achieve that.


Yes, I would if you can manage do it yourself, but again if your need quality results you should go with professionals.
