First Mate Priority & Flexibilitty

Long-Term Relationship: A retainer encourages a more committed relationship. We gain a deeper understanding of your business over time, which results in more effective strategies and better results.

Flexibility: Switch services from month to month based on your changing needs. This type of adaptability is usually not possible with service-based contracts.

Cost-Effective: The initial outlay for a retainer might seem higher, the ongoing access to expertise and the ability to utilise different services can provide a higher ROI over the long term compared to hiring for individual projects.

Holistic Approach: A retainer allows the agency to see the bigger picture of your business, helping them craft comprehensive strategies that consider all facets of your marketing efforts. In contrast, service-based contracts tend to focus on isolated tasks or campaigns.

Time Saving: With a retainer, you save time as you don’t have to continuously search for new providers for different services. This consistency allows for more efficient communication and project management

Frequently Asked Questions

A marketing retainer is a long-term agreement between a business and a marketing agency. Instead of commissioning individual projects, the business pays a set monthly fee for ongoing services, ensuring continuous marketing efforts and a dedicated team at their disposal. An average marketing retainer can be between 6-12 months.

Retainers offer consistency, both in branding efforts and budgeting. It ensures that your marketing strategies are proactive rather than reactive. Plus, the agency becomes deeply familiar with your brand, enabling more efficient and targeted marketing efforts.

With a fixed monthly fee, you can easily forecast your marketing expenses. There are no surprises or hidden costs, allowing for smoother financial planning.

Absolutely! We will tailor the retainer to your business needs, ensuring you get the best combination of services for your unique requirements

One of the beauties of a retainer is flexibility. If your marketing needs evolve, most agencies will work with you to adjust the retainer’s scope, ensuring alignment with your changing goals.

Not always. While some agencies might prefer long-term commitments, many offer flexible durations, from quarterly to yearly, to cater to varying business needs.

Since the agency becomes an extended part of your team, communication is often more seamless. Regular check-ins, updates, and strategy sessions are commonly part of the retainer model.

In the long run, yes. The cumulative cost of individual projects can surpass that of a retainer. With a retainer, you often benefit from bundled services, dedicated attention, and consistent efforts, giving you more value for your investment

The specifics vary by agency, but most contracts will have a clause detailing the termination process. It’s essential to discuss and understand these terms and conditions

If you require consistent marketing efforts, seek predictability in budgeting, and wish for a dedicated team familiar with your brand, a retainer might be ideal. Discuss your needs with potential agencies to find the best fit.
