What is outsourced full marketing?
An outsourced full marketing agency is a single point of contact for all of your online and offline marketing needs.
Aside from our internal talent, Business Ninja looks to other resources when necessary, in an attempt to save costs and ensure efficiency.
How do we schedule an introductory meeting?
Feel free to email, call, or send us a message through our website. We will schedule a complimentary introduction meeting, which allows both parties to determine if a business relationship is deemed fit.
How is Business Ninja less expensive than in-house marketing?
Hiring an in-house marketing manager can cost anywhere from $45,000 – $90,000 annually. Along with that yearly salary comes benefits, training fees, operating expanses, and much more- potentially escalating to over $100,000 a year.
Be mindful that for an in-house marketing manager to be successful, he/she will need the resources of a graphic designer, webmaster, printer, etc.
With Business Ninja, you will save both time and money as we handle the strategy, management, and execution of the project. This approach is both cost effective and ensures the highest level of quality.
What project or company sizes do you work with?
We mainly service small to medium sized companies. However, Business Ninja can accommodate and work with any company.
Are you able to assist with sales too?
Yes. We understand that sales and marketing are interrelated. We can assist with sales training, tracking, and lead nurturing.
How often will we meet?
We communicate with most of our clients weekly via email, phone, or Skype. In addition, we like to schedule regular monthly meetings to assess progress and measure results. We customize these meetings based on each client’s personal needs and establish the frequency of communication at the beginning of each month.
Can you work in our office?
We will gladly schedule office hours if that is your preference.
Who manages the marketing implementation?
In most cases, the onus of implementation is on us, allowing the client to direct his/her time and energy to the business needs. However, this is dependent on what the client needs from Business Ninja.
Can you execute an A la Carte project or plan?
Yes. Often, we begin with a small-scale project or plan and as funds allow, we return to work on a more consistent basis.
How much should I allocate to my marketing budget?
This can be a difficult question to answer. It truly depends on how much marketing is required for your specific business and what your business development goals are. We are happy to assist you in setting realistic business goals and then working towards achieving them.
How much should we budget for your fees?
If you are looking for Business Ninja to replace a full-time marketing director, you will be pleased with your savings. If you are looking for a marketing assistant, we are able to accommodate our workload for this pricing structure as well. Prices are based on the level of professional expertise and time needed. We will work to ensure that both parties are satisfied with the fee structure.
I don’t have a marketing budget – can you help me establish a benchmark?
Absolutely. We are experienced and qualified to develop both your marketing budget and strategic plan.
What is the agreement or contract?
With new clients, we begin with a fixed fee per project. Afterwards, we usually agree on an annual or monthly retainer, allowing us to offer our clients realistic rates and exceptional service.
How does Business Ninja differ from an advertising agency?
Typically, an advertising agency will be more expensive with a focus on mass media, collateral, and other related marketing materials. There will be a lack of focus on overall sales success or return on investment.
Will you work with our staff?
Absolutely. If you have staff that is willing to be trained and has the time to work with us, we are willing to accommodate the workload.
