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!

Hey Vvel, moving past guys spamming their services here, it really depends on what you need to be done.

 

If you are looking for someone to help you with Facebook ads, Adwords or email marketing, you can go to Upwork and post a job with a detailed description there. You can then invite freelancers that you like to apply for the job and others will apply as well. You can browse profiles and see their portfolio and reviews and get a good feel on what you can expect.

 

If you are just starting out and you are not spending a lot on advertising at this point, then you shouldn't pay more then $1000/mo to anyone. I would say that $500-1000/m would be a good range that you can expect.

 

People on Upwork generally won't screw you over (if they've been a long time and have stellar reviews) because your negative feedback can really burn them.

 

You just need to clearly define your goals, budget, and deliverables but also you need to follow their advice and strategy that they propose as that's what they know best.

We have to keep certain things in mind for a digital marketer:

  • Firstly, they should be highly analytical i.e. should be aware of the ways of finding the right numbers, interpreting them, and making strategies to improve their KPIs.
  • Secondly, they should be well versed in writing content. They should know how to write captions for social media, how to write copy for PPC ads, and how to write SEO-optimized content for your blog.
  • Thirdly, they should have proper knowledge of SEO. They should have knowledge of keyword research, optimizing specific keywords, which of the on-page signals are important for ranking, the difference between white-hat and black-hat SEO, and more. Also, he should have knowledge of some major SEO tools.
  • Fourthly, they should know how to write a proper Email. The content should be appealing to the client. They should be aware of various email marketing tools for automating the process.
  • Lastly, their communication skills should be very good.

If you are going for an agency, the prices are obviously going to be high. Especially in western countries.

You can outsource your work to a good Eastern Country Agency. I myself used to work in an eCommerce Agency and basically many western agencies would out source the work to us.

In that case, you can find a good business straight in India and cut the middle man.

If you have basic knowledge of digital marketing, you can always hire freelancers off fiverr or upwork and you can just monitor their work.

  • Look in the right places for your hunt - Finding a digital marketer appears to be simple on the surface. Hundreds of professionals will compete to help you develop your company if you go to freelance pages, work boards, or directories.

 

  • Examine their social media accounts in-depth - Examine your digital marketer's presence on all major social media platforms, see if they have a forum, and then learn more about their background.

Look for red flags like these:

  1. One or more of their accounts has been inactive for some time.
  2. They either don't have social media pages on major sites or have incomplete profiles.
  3. They don't communicate with their audience and just post their own material.
  4. They don't seem to have any social evidence that is based on results or case studies.

 

  • Audit their LinkedIn network

 

  • Ask for case studies and testimonials

 

  • Google them - Everyone leaves a digital paper trail, which you can certainly look into. Google is the best way to get a complete picture of someone's online presence, including their social media accounts.
