Received a suggestion from a friend to work with this marketing agency Leeds to boost the visibility of my online business. Haven’t tried hiring this kind of agency before so I’m not sure what questions to ask during our initial meeting. Can you guys help me out? Thanks in advance.

The first question you should ask the agency in what category of business they are ideal?
is it e-commerce, healthcare, technology or other?
The question should be like:
What types of companies do you serve, and in what industries or markets? Who is your ideal client, and why?
Second:
How long have you been in business? How do you manage fluctuations in demand?
How do you measure results?

It is best to find out in which area the marketing agency you choose is more effective. Then I would ask what time frame I should give them to study my business. I would also ask what plan they would follow. I would ask which is better - advertising on social networks or SEO. All these things, I think, should interest you more than others. Only then would I ask about the cost of their services and other monetary issues. I always care about the effectiveness of the service, the arrival of customers, and the popularity of the website.
