Most agencies want $5000 a month.
How does a small new business find legit marketing help? I've tried myself but cant get anything.

Hi, @Vvel.


Tira here, from Shopify Support.


That is a great question, congrats on starting your own business!


If you're looking to have someone take care of your digital marketing for you, I recommend taking a look at our Shopify Experts Marketplace, where we list specific Shopify Partners who you can hire to help you with getting traffic to your store so that you can make sales! 


Would you be open to learning how to market your store on your own? We have plenty of resources that you can take a look at in our Help Center that you can view here: Marketing Help. We cover how to build a marketing plan, improving your search engine optimization practices, setting up marketing campaigns and much more to help you market your store!


Is there a specific part of digital marketing that you are looking for assistance with right now?

It's tricky...  Big agencies will charge big fees but there are plenty of freelancers and start-up agencies out there who charge more modest fees while still doing really good work.  Sometimes, in fact, I think the little guys care more and probably undervalue their services so you might get a good deal.


I'd try looking on Upwork and look for someone reasonably local.  I would also always go for a native English speaker, it really does show when you start writing ads if it's a second language, even if they're fluent!  You could also try joining some facebook groups and asking around.  You'll get bombarded with offers of services from loads of people in the group but very often people will be tagged who have a good reputation and you can reach out to them.


Yes, it is a bit of a minefield but there are good people out there. 


Good luck!

If i remember correctly, on upwork do you post a job and set a price and they come to you?

If they do what would a reasonable price be?

To find a good digital marketer who can add value to your business is to see their past records and ask as many questions as possible.


Secondly, start with a low budget and don't pay too much in the beginning phases. Once you start seeing growth, you may pay more and invest more in advertising :)


You could reach to new marketing agency with good track record or success rate. Their charges should not be more than $1000/month :)


Thank you!
