Make your online presence, it surely makes different.

If you have the factors stated above then you are a good agency but if you are able to these secret factors you surely will become a top agency one day.
1. Create good content
Content is the basic factor for every skill, you need to see that the content you create is good. Now the question is what is good content? A good content is not content with big words which no one easily understands. Create content which is understandable to everyone. Your content should give value to readers. This is a major factor which most agencies do not look upon. It is very important for any seller to know who his customer is. The content you create should always be written keeping in mind for whom you are writing.
It will make your task easier if you know who your customer is. It will make your content more valuable for customer.
2. Understand consumer psychology
No business can be successful until they understand the concept of consumer psychology. Not many people will tell you what a great difference knowing consumer psychology brings. One “official” definition of consumer behavior is “The study of individuals, groups, or organizations and the processes they use to select, secure, use, and dispose of products, services, experiences, or ideas to satisfy needs and the impacts that these processes have on the consumer and society”
Once you understand this concept it is like you have already covered 30% of your success path.
Learning consumer psychology will help you in understanding where to invest your money. You’ll understand better what product you should launch.
It will help you make better campaign as now you have a better understanding of what your customer likes. In simple words it decreases you chances of failure. Its an essential step for a digital marketing company to become successful.
3. Make good strategies
Making strategies is the most important factors, any army fighting without a plan is bound to doom. Behind every successful brand there is always a great strategy.
It is never like that you create some content and immediately people come and start reading it. It takes correct strategy which will bring you more traffic.
Even before making strategies you need to sit and think what are your goals and needs. Once you know what is your goal then only you can make strategy to achieve that goal.
Your strategies should be based on the 3 basics- what, when, how.
4. Key marketing person
It is a must for you to have a person in your company who is expert in key marketing. There is a reason we are talking about hiring an expert not a normal guy, key marketing cannot be mastered overnight, and key marketing is one of major factor so you should not compromise upon it.

It is often seen that agencies forget that even though its digital marketing it does not mean only digital part is considered. Often people forget that marketing is the key par whether digital on traditional.
5. Competitive pricing
For those who know what digital marketing can do for their business, hiring a cheap agency almost never gives positive results. Spending money on marketing that uses black-hat SEO or other outdated tactics can end up costing you more in the long run. Or, if they’re using very inexpensive third-party contractors to do your work, that could end in disaster. Similarly, the most expensive one might be overpriced or might offer more than what your business actually needs. Your best bet is to do a bit of comparing and make sure your digital marketing company (or the one you’re considering) offers services at prices that are competitive, yet make sense for your business.
6. Never be satisfied
“The ultimate path to success never ends”, you can never be very successful or rich. Have you ever seen someone complaining that they earn too much. You should always thrive to grow more.
The day you think you have achieved everything and now you don’t need to succeed more, that day will the start of your failure.
By never be satisfied we are not just talking about earning more money, it is more about self-improving. If you work on making yourself better every day you eventually become more successful.
And yes important thing is you should know what people are looking for when hiring Digital Marketing Agency. Think from the Business Point of views also what they wanted to know before hiring you. For that check the blog Things you should have before hiring a Digital Marketing company
