The Marketing Agency Advantage – Hiring the Right Choice

Most companies understand that marketing is the backbone of capital and a consistent effort toward marketing initiatives will grow their business and brand awareness. Some business owners decide to hire their own internal marketing champion or team. Other companies realize the benefits of aligning with a marketing agency equipped with more resources and undivided focus. Naturally, from the perspective of an agency owner, I would advocate hiring a marketing agency because of the tremendous benefits. If you’re asking yourself, “Should I hire a marketing agency?” the decision can radiate various benefits for businesses looking to improve their marketing efforts and achieve their goals.


Benefits of Working with a Marketing Agency for Manufacturers


Expertise & Experience

Like many marketing agencies, Vive Marketing has a team of professionals with diverse skills and experience in various aspects of marketing, including digital marketing, graphic design, content creation, SEO, and more. This expertise can save a business time and money compared to hiring and training an in-house team.

Cost Effective

Hiring a marketing agency can be more cost-effective than maintaining a full-time in-house marketing team. Business owners can scale their marketing efforts up or down based on the needs of the business landscape and control when to reduce overhead costs. Plus, you don’t have to pay for my healthcare benefits!


Access to Cutting-Edge Tools & Technologies

At Vive Marketing, we use several online tools to manage the success of a client’s marketing expedition. One of them, SEMrush, is quite costly. Not only are Vive’s clients the benefactor of the latest marketing tools, software, and technologies, but that annual subscription renewal fee is a shared cost with other Vive clients.


Fresh Perspective

An external marketing agency can provide a fresh perspective on your business and marketing strategies. As a team, Vive Marketing offers new ideas and insight that your teammates may not have considered because they’re limited to their own four walls; this helps your business stay innovative and competitive.


Focus on Core Competencies

Leave it to the experts. Outsourcing marketing activities to an agency specifically in manufacturing like Vive allows you to focus on your core business functions. Let the team of marketers for manufacturing do the heavy lifting. This can improve overall efficiency and productivity within your organization.



Vive Marketing understands that business landscapes change, making it necessary for you to adapt to the altering needs and scale marketing budgets accordingly. Whether you’re launching a new capability or expanding into new markets, choosing a marketing agency can adjust your marketing strategy to align with the new business goals.


Faster Result

With a dedicated team of professionals, marketing agencies can often deliver faster results compared to building an in-house team from scratch. Vive Marketing typically works with an internal champion at your business so we can move the needle toward marketing success much quicker.


Measurable Results

This is my favorite! Long gone are the days when you’d hear, “You can’t measure marketing.” Not today! Vive Marketing subscribes to data and analytic resources to track the performance of marketing plans and campaigns. This allows for continuous optimization and ensures that your marketing efforts are delivering a positive return on investment while also recognizing when to pivot.


Access to Industry Insights & Data

I’m very proud to share with Vive prospects that we attend the same conferences, trade shows, and industry events as them. This makes us aware of any manufacturing challenges and is how we understand the vernacular of marketing for manufacturers. Vive Marketing utilizes industry data and trends, which can help you make informed decisions.


Customized Marketing Strategies

I always comment that where a manufacturer is in their marketing journey will determine the tailored marketing strategies in the scope in order to suit specific business needs or target audiences to ensure the marketing plan is effective.



Yes, it’s true, at Vive Marketing we’re brand cops! We help manufacturers maintain a consistent brand image and message across all marketing channels, which is crucial for building brand recognition and trust.


Creative Content

This is where your business may benefit most at Vive Marketing. We have a tremendous creative content team that produces high-quality content, visuals, and ad campaigns to engage your audience and make your brand memorable.



Overall, if you’re vacillating about working with a marketing agency or hiring your own marketing expert, remember that an agency like Vive Marketing can provide your businesses with a strategic advantage by leveraging the expertise, resources, and experience of a specialized team to drive growth and achieve marketing objectives. However, it’s essential to choose the right agency that aligns with your business goals and values to maximize these benefits. With an exclusive focus on manufacturing with a lean in plastics and metals, Vive is your easy answer!
