    I need help with marketing, I have an online shop (wall decals and housewares) and I need to get someone to help me with online marketing, managing google ads etc.
    All the companies/agencies I found online claim to have packages for small business but they start at $1800 a month which I can't afford.
    Do you have any recommendation, do you know a freelancer instead of an agency that might be cheaper?
    Thanks!

    Why don't you list your website - theres heaps of designers here that would give you some great feedback.

    I would look invest in getting a sellable website before spending money on marketing...

    All the best,
    Sean

    Hi

    If you cant afford a done for you service, have you considered group consulting or coaching instead?

    $97 - $500 a month will give u more value as long as you are prepared to do the work

    Hi there,

    One of my clients provides marketing/PR and they specialise in providing services for small businesses and their rates are start lower than the $1800 that you had stated in your post.

    The business name is Affinity Marketing and the director's name is Brianna. The website is http://www.affinitymarketing.com.au. I have no hesitation in recommending Brianna and her team as I see how hard she works for her clients as well as samples of her work.

    Good luck with your search!

    Depending on your budget, I may be possible to tailor a solution for you.

    The tricky thing would be to aligning your expectations up front so there are no surprises.

    I think that ideally, you should spend as much as you can on marketing providing you get a solid ROI.

    I.e. spending $1 that turns into $2 is OK but spending $4 that turns into $10 would be much better. With that example in mind, maybe you can only afford the $1 right now which is fine, but once the marketing starts to work and sales increase the opportunity to spend more will arise.


    PM me if you want more info from me as I think we could get you where you need to go.
