You may have reservations about putting “all your eggs in one basket”, but this shouldn’t stop you from completely writing off the idea of enlisting an all-in-one agency. A high quality one-stop shop technology agency presents far more benefits and opportunities for your business than you might expect, saving you time and money by streamlining processes and making communication painless, keeping your brand messaging cohesive and consistent, and giving your business access to a full team of industry experts who will elevate your business to the next level.
Too many cooks in the kitchen
While it may seem like a good idea to go to a variety of sources to satisfy your business technology needs – having too many cooks in the kitchen can often do more harm than good. Enlisting the services of different agencies to cover elements of your business like technology solutions, marketing, SEO, web design, and graphic design can quickly put your business in an awkward position regarding lack of communication, inconsistent messaging, and worst of all, constantly-increasing prices. The more service providers you take on, the more time consuming it becomes for your team to coordinate and communicate with each party. This leads to communication breakdowns, leading to wildly inconsistent brand messaging, which only serves to confuse customers and make marketing and branding efforts far less effective.
The argument for an all-in-one agency
Convenience is king in a constantly evolving world – a worthy one-stop shop gives your business everything it needs in order to succeed. From business solutions and strategy to marketing and design, an all-in-one agency will be able to offer everything you need and make it painless for your business. This makes communication and unified messaging and strategy easier than ever before, as you and your team will be communicating with one source rather than half a dozen.
This streamlines communication and coordination, ensuring that nothing is lost in translation or overlooked by the agency and your team, and sees that every team member working on your account is familiar with your company’s brand, messaging, strategies, and overall goals. When you cut out the amount of third party contractors and agencies working with your business, you’re also ensuring that messaging and branding will be consistent, as there are less voices adding to the communication chaos.
Working with a one-stop agency is often far more cost effective than going to various agencies – leaving you with one single bill to pay, rather than leaving with you four or more payments to organize. This one-stop approach also ensures that fewer resources are wasted, as your business won’t be burdened by duplicate or redundant solutions that serve only to inflate your expenses. ion8 is an all-in-one agency with a full team of experienced designers, digital marketers, consultants, integration experts, and more.
