Hiring a marketing consultant should be a pretty easy process; however, finding the right one for your company may be a bit challenging. Here are a few questions to ask yourself before you start searching to hire a marketing consultant:

  • Do all consultants make you sign a 12-month (or more) service contract?
  • What services do we need the marketing consultant to help us deliver?
  • What is our budget (most times monthly) for spending on an outside marketing consultant?
  • What expectations should we expect from this relationship?
  • Who will be responsible to keep the marketing consultant moving forward?
  • What qualities are most important for the consultant we hire?
