Digital Agency Hiring Guide

What is a digital agency?

A digital agency is a marketing agency that focuses on promoting your business, products, or services through strategic and creative solutions while utilizing technology to boost brands’ online presence and sales on various digital channels.  

What does a digital agency do?

A digital agency implements custom technology, creative, and advertising solutions to help its clients achieve their marketing and business goals.  

Specifically, a digital agency: 

  • Uses its technical know-how to enhance digital marketing and ads 
  • Develops strategies based on data 
  • Creates digital platforms (e.g., websites and apps) and sometimes even products 
  • And more 

These are the services a digital agency can offer: 

  • Digital marketing: A digital agency offers comprehensive online promotion of brands and products. 
  • Analytics and reporting: Digital agencies can track and analyze digital marketing results to make better decisions for your business.  
  • Email marketing: A digital firm can use email to strengthen customer relationships and drive sales. 
  • Web design and development: It creates beautiful and easy-to-use websites. It also offers technology consulting, information architecture planning, UX and UI design, development, Q&A, launch, and maintenance. 
  • Search engine optimization (SEO): A digital agency helps brands rank higher in search and generate qualified, organic traffic. 
  • Mobile app design and development: It crafts user-friendly applications specifically for smartphones and tablets. 
  • Branding: It establishes a unique image and identity for a brand in the consumer's mind. 
  • eCommerce solutions: It streamlines online product sales and transactions, helping online stores stay competitive. 
  • Paid advertising: A full-service digital agency offers specialized digital advertising services including Google ads, Amazon advertising, social media paid advertising, and more. 
  • Social media marketing: A digital agency crafts strategies to engage audiences on social platforms, creating and sharing content that promotes brand interaction and loyalty. 
  • Digital strategy and consulting: It provides expert guidance on digital transformation and strategies to help a business meet its objectives. 
  • Software development: A digital agency tailors software solutions, including CRM systems and automation tools, to fit a business's specific needs. 

That said, some of a digital agency’s tasks include but are not limited to:  

  • Conducting market and competitive research 
  • Sketching buyer personas 
  • Devising CRM and sales funnel strategies 
  • Crafting brand positioning and messaging 
  • Creating digital content 
  • Developing digital marketing campaigns 
  • Generating and nurturing leads 
  • Setting up email strategies for different customer segments 
  • Crafting attention-grabbing emails that motivate action 
  • Evaluating the performance of email campaigns and adjusting strategies as needed 
  • Making plans that match business goals and what the audience wants 
  • Writing articles, making infographics, producing videos, and posting on social media 

What's the difference between a digital agency and a digital marketing agency?

To better understand the distinction between a digital agency and a digital marketing agency, here’s a side-by-side comparison: 

ServicesDigital agenciesDigital marketing agencies
Web design & development✔  
Mobile app design & development ✔  
Emerging technology integration ✔  
SEO ✔ ✔ 
Social media marketing  ✔ 
Content marketing  ✔ 
PPC & native advertising  ✔ 

In summary, while both agencies offer digital services, a digital agency covers a broader range of digital solutions. On the other hand, a digital marketing agency specializes in online promotional strategies.  

How much does it cost to hire a digital agency?

According to Scaletime, hiring a digital agency can cost $35 to $200+ per hour, depending on the firm's location. US-based agencies typically charge $125 to $200+ per hour, while those based in Eastern Europe may charge $35 to $75 per hour. 

Here are the monthly average costs based on service type: 

ServiceAverage monthly cost
Digital marketing $500 to $10,000 
SEO$3,000 to $8,000 
Content marketing $500 to $3,000 
Social media management $500 to $10,500 
Email marketing $350 to $5,000 
Link building $3,000 to $10,000 

Digital agencies can invoice in several ways: 

  • Hourly rates: You pay for each hour spent on your project. 
  • Per-project: This is often based on the hourly rate but is billed as a fixed sum for a specific task. 
  • Results-based fees: Payment is dependent on achieving a particular goal or metric. 
  • Monthly retainers: This is a flat fee for ongoing consultation or services.

Why should I hire a digital agency?

One reason to hire a digital agency is that it has an expert team with advanced technical resources. With these, it can effortlessly navigate the ever-evolving digital field and position your company for strong adaptability and growth. 

Moreover, here’s why you should consider hiring a digital agency: 

  • To make powerful first impressions: Your brand has only seven seconds to make a favorable first impression [Forbes]. A digital agency ensures that your website, often the first point of contact with your audience, is designed to leave a lasting, positive impact. 
  • To harness the mobile audience: Mobile phones account for about 60% of website traffic [Statista]. An efficient digital agency crafts responsive websites, focusing on user experience. 
  • To navigate ad-blocker challenges: Considering around 40% of the global population uses ad blockers [Hootsuite], a digital agency can adopt smarter strategies to curate and launch effective campaigns that resonate and convert. 
  • To ensure timely project completion: Digital agencies have the skills and resources to finish your projects on time, avoiding delays and maximizing efficiency. 
  • To optimize costs and ROI: Expertise from an agency often results in cost savings and improved ROI. 
  • To flexibly scale digital efforts: A digital agency can scale its services to match your expanding needs. 
  • To present a unified brand image: It ensures a uniform brand message across all digital platforms. 
  • To stay ahead of digital trends: It offers continuous customer support and keeps you updated on the latest digital trends. 
  • To guarantee reliability and adaptability: An agency partnership is dependable and ensures your digital needs are addressed. 
  • To access valuable industry experience: Leverage its vast experience to avoid common pitfalls. 
  • To maintain transparency and prevent oversight: Agencies offer clear reports, letting you track the results of your digital strategies. 
  • To target the most valuable audience: Precise target market research ensures your brand reaches its potential customers. 

When you partner with a proficient digital agency, you're not just getting services; you're also securing a digital future that's vibrant, agile, and primed for success. 

To illustrate the advantages of working with a digital agency, consider the success story of Mikimoto. With the expertise of Intero Digital, Mikimoto, a significant name in the cultured pearls trade, secured 6,850 new first-page search engine rankings. This led to a marked growth in website traffic and culminated in a remarkable 107.18% boost in revenue.
