How We Chose the Top Digital Marketing Agencies in Austin

Choosing the right digital marketing agency is something that comes case by case. Each business is unique and has its own vision, business goals, and mission statement. With that being said, each company on this list was selected on the basis of offering a competitive price and a diverse variety of service lines, as well as experience in various industries, to cover as many start-ups’ needs as possible.

Multiple Service Lines

Every company that wishes to go digital requires a few foundational pillars in place: a responsive, attractive, and professional-looking website design, excellent digital marketing, and most importantly, a strong brand presence. We’ve chosen 15 companies based on these criteria, as well as a few others, to fulfill any gap that a start-up might have in its online presence. Remember: It’s not about how many services a digital marketing company can provide but how efficiently it delivers the few it can.

Size of Firms

It’s understandable to become overwhelmed by the scale of some digital marketing companies. Some can be as few as two, while others have hundreds of employees across different teams. One thing is certain: We can’t be sure what each individual’s needs are, so we’ve selected companies of varying sizes, ensuring in the process that no one feels left out.

Industry Focus

With the turn of the century, many new industries have popped up across the world, such as renewable energy and e-commerce. But not every digital marketing firm is a jack-of-all-trades, and some have more experience in a particular industry than others.  We’ve selected 15 digital marketing agencies based on a risk/reward scheme in which start-ups can find firms that can fulfill their business goals.

Questions to Ask Digital Marketing Agencies

With so many digital marketing companies in Austin each offering similar features, it’s important to ask the right questions during your initial discovery call or demo. To help you make the right inquiries, we put together a downloadable list of questions to ask your prospective digital marketing company.
