However, digital marketing is a very time consuming and labour intensive process and for businesses who are unsure of what to do there are hurdles to overcome.

Many companies are still getting to grips with digital and feel daunted by how to go about creating and executing a digital marketing strategy.

So, do you go digital DIY and do your marketing in-house or do you contract out to a specialist agency?

Agencies can be expensive but their knowledge and expertise in the digital area is excellent. If you are about to, or have just taken your business online, an agency will provide you with value for money for a small or short term campaign.
