Don’t be too proud to ask for help with digital marketing

You might think “If you want something done, do it yourself”, but you need to ask for help with digital marketing. You just can’t do it all by yourself.

Asking for help with digital marketing is not a sign of weakness

Many experts refer to one another for help with digital marketing because sometimes one is more experienced with one aspect than the other. So why shouldn’t you?

Why have I decided to talk about this today?

Well, lately I have seen many examples of companies or even freelancers who do their own digital marketing but are failing miserably or just spend money on ads without any results. All of that makes them give up on digital marketing and they end up becoming another dead page on the internet.

One example for this is an account that has commented on an Instagram photo of mine a few days ago, inviting me to check out their page.
While I admire the work they invested in copy-pasting the same message to who-knows-how-many random accounts, they have wasted much time and energy in trying to gain free followers without investing in real advertising.

The reason for this is that comments with links are almost always sure to appear spammy and therefore ignored by most people. Plus, what exactly was their strategy for choosing the accounts and photos on which to post their comment?

Getting back to our main theme: asking for help with digital marketing

Asking for professional help with digital marketing is like going to the mechanic when you have car trouble. Yes, you don’t always know what you’re paying for, but a sure bet is that they know more about the matter than you do.

What’s more, some professionals just have much more experience with different situations or cases that they already know the answer for many problems.

A great example for this is ad creatives. Creating a graphic design for an ad is of utmost importance, otherwise your ad won’t attract any attention and will cost you money without any ROI.

Look for an experienced graphic designer on Fiverr, for example, for a quick solution for an ad, instead of wasting time creating something useless.

If you’re having problems with your website, like no visitor conversions for example, get a UX expert to take a look at your landing pages and perhaps even make the necessary adjustments for you.

Asking for help with digital marketing will make sure you optimise time and budget for things you are not an expert on, and the best part, you can concentrate on your own job instead.
