Most businesses, regardless of industry or size, reach a stage where they need a little help from a content marketing agency.
Outsourcing your content marketing is often a more cost-effective option. Especially when compared to hiring a content marketing team.
If you’re in London, chances are you’re thinking about choosing a London content marketing agency. But in this blog, we’re going to discuss why we think you should look North rather than choosing a London content marketing agency.
And it’s not just because us Northerner’s have better food. Fish and chips with gravy, anyone? Or because the folk are a whole lot friendlier up North (although that does help). Or because we have beautiful scenery. And it’s not even because we have a Greggs on every corner, or because we produce some pretty amazing musicians.
So, why exactly should you look North?
North Content Marketing Agency vs London Content Marketing Agency
There are pros and cons of choosing a Northern content marketing agency instead of a London content marketing agency.
You may not be working with a company just down the street. And you may not be able to arrange a meeting for tomorrow at the drop of a hat. But other than that, looking North can greatly benefit your company.
Cost-Effective Content Marketing Agencies
It’s no secret that almost everything is cheaper up North than it is down south. And that includes business services, such as content marketing.
SEO and content marketing are already considered cost-effective marketing techniques. And if you’re looking for a content marketing agency for your business, you could save yourself a lot of money by opting for a Northern content marketing agency.
Of course, every marketing agency has their own rates and packages. And no two content marketing agencies will charge you the same price.
So, it’s not easy to outline the amount you could save by choosing a Northern content marketing agency.
But you can get an idea of the difference in price between the North and South of England by looking at hourly rates.
In the North of England, most digital or content marketing agencies charge somewhere between £50 and £100 per hour. Alternatively, you can get help from a freelancer for even less. Whereas in London, the hourly rate is closer to the £250-£300 mark (often more).
Here at GrowTraffic, we have SEO packages starting from just £820 per month. However, we pride ourselves on our flexible and affordable approach.
We don’t turn our back on businesses. Instead, we will try to work with your budget.
Friendly And Reliable Approach
Don’t get us wrong, we don’t think for one minute that London content marketing agencies are ‘un-friendly’.
We’ve worked with lots of Londoners in the past and they’ve been fab. But London marketing agencies tend to be a lot bigger, meaning they will be juggling far more clients.
If you choose a Northern content marketing agency, you will find that they’re super approachable and will tailor-make their services to suit your needs. Plus, the smaller more intimate service means there will always be someone available to chat should you need it.
And with modern technology and apps such as Skype and Zoom, you can still have a meeting at the drop of a hat!
