How We Chose the Best Advertising & Marketing Agencies in Columbus

Advertising and marketing is a key investment that a small business can make to identify customer needs and determine how best to meet those needs. But with so many different advertising and marketing agencies in the Columbus area to choose from, it can be hard to know which one is the right fit for your business. To help you narrow down your options, we’ve put together our list of the best advertising and marketing agencies in Columbus based on three criteria — their service lines, size, and industry focus.

Multiple Service Lines

Every client’s needs are different, so the best advertising and marketing agencies offer a range of services, such as digital strategy, branding, and social media marketing. We’ve focused on agencies that provide multiple service lines, allowing you to adapt your advertising and marketing strategy over time and stick with the same agency as your needs change.

Size of Agency

It’s important to choose an agency that’s the right size for your business. Some agencies work closely with small businesses to offer more personalized services while larger agencies may offer more competitive rates but a less customized experience. We’ve included agencies of all sizes on our list so you can find one that matches your preferences.

Industry Focus

Finally, we’ve included advertising and marketing agencies with a wide range of industry specialties, including healthcare, education, and business. While many advertising and marketing agencies can accommodate clients regardless of their industry, finding one that specializes in your market may be a good idea since you can count on them to know the best practices for your industry.

Questions to Ask Marketing and Advertising Agencies

With so many advertising & marketing agencies in Columbus each offering similar features, it’s important to ask the right questions during your initial discovery call or demo.
