10 Questions You Should Ask Your Social Media Agency

May 11, 2017

Are you thinking of hiring a social media agency?

Do you have an agency or are you part of one?

As a social media agency owner for the past eight years, I have a lot of insight on the good, the bad and the ugly in this business. The process of finding and hiring an agency who can work on social media for your business or brand can be intimidating. If you’re not in the business, it can be tough to know if they are legit or selling you a bag of goods. I’m sharing some great questions you can ask a potential agency or consultant to find out if they will be a good fit for your business or brand.

  • “Ask for clients they are currently working with and check out what they’re doing across social media.”
