Trust Your Digital Marketing Partner
If you have decided to work with a digital marketing partner, there is a level of trust that has to be developed in order to maximize their help and get the results you want. After all, they are the experts and you decided to use them on the basis of their expertise. We have found that when clients trust our expertise, this is when we do our best work. When clients intervene on our process and show a lack of trust, this hampers progress and gets in the way of results. Here are some thoughts:
You Hired Your Digital Marketing Partner for a Reason
Think back to when you vetted the digital marketing agencies. What made you choose the one you decided to work with? If you’re like most clients, you chose them because you believed they’d do the best job for your needs. There had to have been something in their process, their proven results, or their demeanor that made you want to work with. You decided to trust them during the sales process, or else you would have chosen someone else.
It helps to remember these reasons as you forge ahead with your relationship. Digital marketing requires a multi-layered approach. It takes time for the company to analyze, strategize, and implement the strategy. After that, it takes time to get results. Yet, they do know what they are doing, especially if you determined they have an established reputation and a proven track record. Just remember that you hired them for a reason, and you should trust that they will do their job and get you the results you want.
You Won’t Really Understand Digital Marketing Unless You’ve Done It Yourself
Unless you have applied all the principals yourself, you won’t really understand the nuances of digital marketing. This is where trusting the experts can really get you the results you want. We have had clients in the past try to dictate aspects of the process, and when this goes against our process and our strategic instincts, this can impede progress. If the client could get the results on their own, they wouldn’t have hired us in the first place!
However, trust is a two-way street. We understand that clients have unique insights into their businesses. They also may have had prior experience with their digital marketing. This is why we actually look at our relationships with our clients as a collaboration. While we do want clients to trust us, we know that no one understands their business better than the client. We feel we need to work together in order to really create a great strategy that will work to help them achieve their business goals. We feel that respected the clients’ knowledge and expertise and trusting them is also important.
When it comes to digital marketing, we feel that clients need to trust us as experts that will get them the results they desire. However, we also need to trust that they understand their business. This creates a truly collaborative experience that will get the best result possible.
