Who Gives You the Best ROI: Digital Agency or Freelancers?
ROI is a measure of your return on investment from building and maintaining a Fitness Studio website to running digital marketing campaigns and attracting leads.
We measure ROI on engaging a digital agency or a freelancer for website design & digital marketing using the following parameters:
- Ability to develop or customize web plugins & tools, like scheduling classes, live streaming, etc.
- Proficiency in website maintenance, SEO services & content marketing
- Impressive portfolio of designing posters, and banners for social media, display ads, or website
As a service-oriented and customer-facing business, there is no better occupation than yours to understand the scope of engaging a freelancer or digital agency for website design or digital marketing.
While freelancers are affordable, we find they fail to deliver a bigger picture if you don’t have an internal team ready. Freelancers come good only if you have a workable plan to execute and where you can dictate them on the terms of your design or marketing requirements.
On the other hand, digital agencies are comparatively expensive but are nothing but an extension of your internal team and also guarantee leadership and course correction if you don’t have an executable plan.

How To Begin?
As more Fitness Studios and Personal Trainers are moving online, new tools are emerging to automate as many areas of their business – like marketing, sales, accounting, designing, or payments – and make it easier than ever for them to run businesses entirely on their own and still stay competitive.
But we have also found that managing all of these tools is what starts to complicate the process for most.
This has given rise to web development & branding consulting to help personal trainers with both the tools and guidance to keep them running and attract more traffic.
Here we propose a need for a consultant like SmallBusinessWeb.Co which is essentially a digital agency with dedicated resources for website design, development & marketing yet offers small businesses the comfort of quick, easy, and ready-to-deploy digital solutions at competitive prices as that of freelancers!
We will schedule the pricing plan for different milestones that we set. All these schedules and milestones will be discussed during onboarding.
