Regardless of the economic climate, investing in marketing efforts is a proven tactic for improving a company or brand’s bottom line. However, when faced with a potential recession or another economic downturn, one of the initial cuts made is often to the brand’s marketing efforts. According to the Harvard Business Review, this is a huge mistake.
If you’re asking yourself why, here’s the short, yet definitive answer.
During unsure economic times, a full-service digital marketing agency can work to support your brand, drive sales and assist in your efforts to decipher consumer behavior.

Full-Service or Niche Agency
When the internet was first becoming mainstream, it was enough for a company just to have a web presence. Today, having an online presence is essential for nearly all facets of most companies. For clarity’s sake, let’s define niche. Niche in regards to business is a specialized segment of a particular market. For example, a firm that only handles SEO would be considered a niche agency as it handles one facet of a broader industry.
So, what are the benefits of each?
- If your company is seeking assistance with just one aspect of your marketing strategy, then perhaps a niche market is the better route.
- In regards to collecting data, a niche agency will be able to provide specific information around one category.
- Agencies that work in a niche market are experts in one particular area.
- If your marketing strategy requires multiple specialties, a full-service agency can accomplish all of it while tying all of the loose ends back together.
- Like the name implies, a full-service agency would be able to collect data across all areas and build cohesion.
- Full-service digital marketing agencies are made up of departments of experts across every aspect of the marketing agenda.
- A full-service agency can likely handle every niche. However, a niche agency is limited to the scope of that one particular area.
Here are examples of how Brandon, a full-service digital marketing agency, helped two companies surpass their goals.
Fish Hippie is a lifestyle apparel brand. During COVID, Fish Hippie enlisted the help of Brandon to help the company create a direct-to-consumer (D2C) marketing strategy that allowed it to not only survive an economic downturn but to thrive during the global anomaly. Utilizing quality content, new website assets, and a unique CRM (customer relationship management) strategy and anchored with a strategic marketing plan, Brandon was able to help Fish Hippie grow its ecomm business during this limited recession brought on by a pandemic.
