Marketing is too expensive!

Marketing doesn’t have to be expensive.  There is an old adage that says you get what you pay for.  That is true to a certain extent, but with marketing there are a lot of different things you can do. 

You don’t have to pay thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars to get good, effective marketing.  If you deal with a big marketing firm, will you get the same service as a smaller firm at a lower price? 

At On the Level Marketing, we sit down with our potential clients to find out their needs, what their budget is, and then we work around that.  We are not going to give away the farm, but we will do our best to work with you. 

I’VE PAID FOR MY LOGOS AND THEN HAD TO PAY TO GET A FILE OF IT.

This should never be the case. Period!  You have paid someone to create that logo.  Once you have paid for the services you should own all rights to that logo.  If a marketing agency doesn’t give you full rights to the logo, then that is a red flag. 

When On The Level Marketing creates a logo for our clients, they get the logo in multiple formats and it is theirs.  They own it, not On The Level Marketing.  All we ask is that we can display a sample of the work, on our website, which in turn provides the business additional advertising. 

PAID FOR A WEBSITE, BUT CAN’T AFFORD MONTHLY MAINTENANCE

Again, On The Level Marketing is here to help you.  If you are not wanting a monthly maintenance service for your site, and want to maintain it yourself, we are happy to walk you through on how to keep the website updated. 

Our philosophy is that we feel that if we treat our clients right, they will come back to us, and refer us.  That is the best kind of advertising any business could ask for.

I DON’T NEED A MARKETING PERSON.  I CAN DO IT MYSELF.

This is true.  If you are a creative person and have knowledge of Marketing; however, I know, even for myself, it is always harder to market something you are close to.  It can be done, sure, but how effective are you.  Sometimes, when you are too close to a project you can’t see beyond the forest. Not to mention, you are trying to run a business.  Do you have the time?  If you do is it quality marketing?  So many times I go into businesses and see homemade signs.  Not only is it tacky to have a homemade sign but a lot of the times there are misspellings, etc.

At On The Level Marketing, marketing is our business.  We can see things you can’t.  If you have the marketing bug, we will most certainly do our best to take your visions into account, but in the end you hire us to do your marketing.  You always have the option to decline a design, or find a new marketing company.
