Using the gig economy when you find yourself without an agency

As an agency owner and HubSpot Partner, I’m in two minds about writing this article. But the reality is, often a brand may find themselves without an agency and need to come up with a plan to continue with their inbound marketing.

Some reasons for this include:

  1. Firing your agency because you’re no longer happy with their work or results
  2. Your agency firing you as a customer
  3. The agency going out of business
  4. Budget cuts at your company that mean you can’t afford a retainer
  5. Your HubSpot specialist has gone on vacation and you need help now

In some cases you’ll need a bit of time to find a new agency, as the process of searching, vetting, and deciding on a worthwhile agency could take weeks or even months. If you left your previous agency relationship with a bitter taste in your mouth, you might also need time for your confidence in the agency model to build up again.

No matter what your reason for flying solo, the gig economy is a temporary or permanent solution that allows you to continuing with your marketing and getting the most from the HubSpot platform.
