Growth Marketing FAQs

Though growth marketing is not an overly new term, many business owners and marketing directors don't have a ton of experience with it and have questions. We've tried to answer some of the most common growth marketing questions below to help you on your growth journey. 

How much do growth marketing agencies cost?

Growth marketing agency pricing can vary based on factors such as services needed, resources deployed to the account, and complexity of brand and revenue asset channels. 

Most growth agencies will prefer to work in a monthly retained services format and require a minimum of 6-24 month retainer. As a general variance, you can expect to be spending around $10,000 / month as a starting retainer price for a good growth marketing agency.

How quickly do I see results from Growth Marketing?

Seasoned growth teams will deploy a strategy which audits and analyzes the current revenue generating activities and narrows first touch growth needs by lowest effort to highest impact growth tactics. When deployed correctly, this strategy can lead to relatively immediate results.

The most experienced marketing agencies will use revenue economics to help set short term and long term goals for your business. These goals will be based on factual data your business will need to provide in order to be accurate. It's not uncommon for experienced growth teams to turn away clients too shy to share financial data as it inhibits them from setting realistic goals and milestones. 

How do I hire an in-house growth marketing team?

Hiring an in-house growth marketing team can be challenging. In order to hire in-house, you'll need to have a deep understanding of the discipline and enough acumen to be able to make your first hire. In our experience, your first hire is critical in long term growth success and should be a lead role such as Growth Director or higher. 

If your company hasn't deployed growth services into your business before, it likely makes sense to use an agency to get your team accustom to deploying growth tactics into your business. Once you've settled and your team has been developed a better understanding (and appreciation for) of this style of marketing, you can look to deploy fractional growth marketing team members and/or full-time.

What growth marketing metrics should I be monitoring?

There are an ever growing and changing set of growth marketing metrics businesses can and possibly should monitor. There are also a ton of buzz words surrounding marketing in general. 

In an effort to keep things actionable, we've drilled down to the 7 most critical marketing metrics to track.
