But with so many digital marketing companies, freelancers, consultants, and strategists, it isn’t easy to understand the industry’s average and calculate a budget. 

For the past 4-5 months, our company analyzed almost 7500 online marketing service providers and their fees. Below are the steps we performed to get accurate data:

  1. Analyzing ~ 7500 international or English-speaking online marketing service providers.
  2. Removing the ones that were untrustworthy, fishy, or not competent enough.
  3. Outreaching the remaining companies and freelancers or extracting the information from open sources like their website, Upwork, or other platforms.
  4. Sorting and analyzing the data that we received from 3500 service providers.
