When Saving Money Costs You More

by | theBlog

Your business exists to make money. That’s part of what a business is. The old saying “you have to spend money to make money” is true. But it needs to be balanced. You have to spend enough money to get what you need without overspending and wasting money. We get it. Money is tight. And you don’t want to spend more than you should to get the job done right. That’s why we want to share a few things you should consider when hiring a marketing company and a few things you should ask them about.

“We get it. Money is tight. And you don’t want to spend more than you should to get the job done right.”

1) How much are you currently spending per year?

Don’t just consider how much you spent this month. That will give you a very shallow view of your marketing spending. Consider how much it costs you over one year or even two. After you have looked at how much you spend each year on the various costs of marketing you can ask the next question.

2) How much is the totaled cost of doing marketing when compared to a similar service from another company and how are the services different?

We don’t recommend buying blind. Educated and informed clients are better to work with even though we make less. If you are looking at your marketing costs and comparing how they would stack up against a company like BluBambu’s prices, ask us for a quote. And compare what you pay for in a year with what you would end up paying BluBambu for a year. Sometimes spending less up front only adds on expenses at the end.

3) Ask the company you work with if they offer payment plans.

Most companies, including BluBambu, offer payment plans that will allow you to get started on your marketing without killing your bank account. In fact, a good marketing company will require payments at certain milestones and not necessarily all up front. All you have to do is ask about extended payment plans.

4) How much are you getting back? What is your ROI?

Most small companies we work with don’t know how much, if any, they get back from their marketing? Ultimately your marketing should pay for itself if you are doing it right. And it should ideally pay you a lot more.

In Conclusion

At BluBambu, we strive to keep our prices fair and competitive for both us and our clients. We may appear to be more expensive at first glance. But that usually doesn’t hold up when you compare quality of our products and services over the course of a year. BluBambu is a business it has to make money to continue to exist. But money isn’t why we do what we do.

We do marketing because we love to help our friends and neighbors get quality marketing that is worth the money they are spending. If you are interested in how we can help you save money by doing marketing the right way, schedule a consultation so we can chat. We’d love to hear from you!
