Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve used traditional print advertising so far, why do I need digital advertising?

Consumers look for new businesses and products online first. In 2019, more than 75% of shoppers used mobile devices along with physical shopping, and in 2020, when more than 75% of American consumers indicated they were open to shifting their shopping patterns and brand loyalties permanently, online retail orders increased 146%. If your business is not online, you miss out on a large clientele base that could be walking through your door or ordering from you instead of your competition.

I don’t know where to start with my marketing. Can you help me figure out a marketing plan?

We can look through your current social media marketing and write up a comprehensive strategic plan for your marketing going forward. We also offer editorial calendars for your marketing plans if you need more day-to-day guidance. If you’re not sure what step to take next, choose a time from our calendar to schedule a complimentary consultation and we’ll discuss the next steps to increase your marketing potential.

What is a digital marketing plan? How is it different from an editorial calendar?

A digital marketing plan is a focused marketing strategy that pinpoints your current marketing challenges, frames your vision and mission, and generates a strategy that will help you reach your marketing goals over several quarters to a year.

In addition to a digital marketing plan, your business will also benefit from an editorial calendar. This advertising calendar takes your digital marketing plan and breaks your strategy down into actionable, day-by-day steps. If you need an example for an editorial calendar, you can download a free template here.

What types of digital advertising can you create for my business?

Online events, digital advertising buys, Facebook ads, Google ads, online promotion, online conferences, book promotion, branding, brand personality, social media marketing, marketing strategies, and funnels are options we can bring to your digital marketing table.

I’ve seen ads offering 10,000+ followers for my page. Is it a good idea to purchase email subscribers or social media followers?

No! Purchasing followers on social media will not assist your business marketing growth. Instead, it will hurt your marketing efforts, negatively impact your pages’ standing in algorithms, and damage your brand’s social outreach. We ALWAYS advise against the purchase of subscribers or followers — it’s NEVER a good way to expand your social and digital reach.

What is branding?

Branding is your advertising message, look, and style. No matter what digital platform you’re reaching your potential clients through, your brand should be recognizable in every space your consumer base surfs on the internet.

What is a CMO?

CMO is an acronym for Chief Marketing Officer. Much more than a media buyer, a CMO organizes, plans, and strategizes the best digital marketing for your business. We work with small businesses that need to grow beyond referrals and word of mouth. Instead of throwing mud against a wall to see what sticks, our team creates and launches marketing plans that prioritize results.

Why does my company need a CMO?

Our agency was founded in 2012 to fill a space we saw in the marketing world. As businesses grow, they reach a point where they are too big for the existing team to internally manage the marketing, but they aren’t big enough to hire a dedicated marketing team yet.

Far too often, marketing agencies won’t give new or small businesses a second look because they don’t have the minimum budget required for their services. These growing businesses are left in the lurch, and their growth stagnates. The team has to take time out of serving its customers to focus on marketing. The divided attention makes revenue unpredictable, and the task of marketing lackluster or completely overwhelming.

A CMO provides value-added marketing planning for your business. Instead of guessing what platforms to advertise on or simply posting on social media, a CMO offers a big-picture vision for the entire digital marketplace, including your website, blog, and content. With an organized game plan, a CMO can quickly determine which platforms and strategies work best for your business.

Is hiring Humble & Hustle Studios as my CMO costly?
