I started a data management consulting and accounting firm, while business are having traction, at this point I have more business than I can handle myself, so I hired a part-time employee to help out along with outside contractors from time to time. I decided to really grow the business so I can have more employees, especially to keep the part-time that I currently have because she expressed to me that she would want to work full-time.
I have been doing my own marketing, mainly online marketing and blogging to attrack customers and it is working ok. Since I do not have much marketing budget nor time, I don't want to loss on high costs marketing strategy that gives no results. I want a more aggressive growth plan with a tight budget. I am wondering if I should hire a marketing firm, an advertising agency or hire a sales on commission. What are the price level am I looking at if I hire a marketing firm or advertising agency to do the job.
