Do you market to our clients?
You’re a marketing agency and you have a client who needs a website, and then you hire us to build them a website. You might be wondering, are we going to market to your clients? And the answer is no. They’re your client, and we don’t want to take them away from you. That’s the reason why we only offer to you services. We only offer the website design, and we offer the ongoing maintenance. Our goals are not to sell your clients marketing services or do anything like that.
Some of my competitors out there will actually offer marketing services to your clients and compete with you, but we just don’t feel that’s ethically right. Now we’ll tell you a full disclosure, we do offer some marketing services, but these are to clients that we’ve gone out and we’ve won ourselves, and we’ve done all the work. But when it comes to your clients, we will not market to your clients, so we’re not going to send them elsewhere.
We may make recommendations on products, but we want to make those recommendations to you. We want to give you the knowledge to make you their trusted adviser, as opposed to it being for us. Now if they’re a maintenance subscriber, they may have to work with us, they may need to know about us, but that’s totally up to you and how your agency wants to work with your client and the relationship that they have with us.
If you’re worried about us marketing to your clients, you don’t need to, we’re just not going to do it. It just doesn’t seem ethical for us to compete with you. You’re our customer, you’re our customer and we don’t want to compete with our customer for your client. Okay?
