That’s not an unreasonable request, is it? Many company execs get the itch in early fall and then hustle to take action before Thanksgiving. The stars tend to align, vacations are history, kids are back in school and even for those not in retail, the frenzy is catching.
Many small-to-medium companies discover their incumbent is overtaxed, with too much to do. The chink in their armor becomes apparent, so that’s another good reason to look for a new marketing partner. That alone doesn’t warrant a change, but if that and other misgivings add up, then you have permission to proceed.
But move with dispatch! Have a plan and work the plan. Engage a free service like ours to quickly and precisely identify qualified candidates for inclusion and invitation. Don’t try doing it all yourself. And don’t try to find your candidates using Google, Bing or any of the other search engines. If you do, you’ll find yourself looking equally at more than 30,000 agencies, all competing for your attention. At AgencyFinder we guide you to just the best that satisfy your precise requirements. You’ll be working around various holiday distractions, so be both patient and understanding. Golden Rule at this time – Do Not ask, expect or assign anything that would require work that could deprive agency personnel of their individual holiday vacations.
And if all else fails, move presentations, final decisions and celebration into January and February 2020.
