How Much Should I Pay a Marketing Consultant?

How Much Should I Pay a Marketing Consultant?

The typical marketing consultant charges based on one of two models. First, and maybe most common, is by an hourly consulting rate. The second is fixed bid on a project-by-project basis. Often this is based on their anticipated number of hours for a project multiplied by the hourly rates of the consultant. Those rates are generally depends on the geographical market of the consultant, economic factors such as the status of the economy, and the consultants current capacity or demand.

As a benchmark, in our experience, these fees tend to be between $65-$300 per hour. This can vary greatly depending on their resume, overhead and demand. For your average marketing consultant, fees are most commonly in the $100-$175 per hour range. This can often cause sticker shock to those that are comparing it to the salary of an employee that might be closer to $30 an hour. What you must do is consider all the things that go into a project.

For simplicity, let’s consider a 10 hour project that is preparing a simple marketing strategy for a short-term marketing campaign. At the common rate of $150 per hour, your investment is $1,500. This might only cost $300 of in-house talent time to work for 10 hours.

The Cost of Ownership
In general, a “marketing strategist” is worth more than a “marketing coordinator.” Strategy is often a small percentage of the work, while executing that strategy might require a lot more time. A marketing coordinator could perhaps demand a salary of $40k to $60k per year, while a strategist can demand the salary of $100k to $150K per year. Those starting numbers put you at $20 per hour versus $50 per hour respectively. Additionally, they will need to have equipment, office space, lunch hours, vacation time, benefits, and there is often lost time at the water cooler that cannot be tracked or recouped.

This increases the cost substantially per hour, but still probably less than a consultant’s hourly fee. The kicker is that a quality employee expects a full-time living. That means that the six figure employee’s 10 hours turns into 40 per week. It’s generally cost prohibitive for most companies to keep the more strategic person on staff on a full time basis. Not only that, it’s rarely necessary.

Not only that, it’s rarely necessary.

Let’s get more specific though. To take a closer look at value, what if one consultant is able to provide you a 10 hour ($1,500) strategy that yields new sales and a profit increase of $10,000. Would that be worth the expense? Absolutely. As I alluded to before, the best position to be in is to pay based on value - not just time and materials. Imagine that a more strategic consultant is able to offer you similar services, but asks for a flat fee of $100,000, anticipating 5 hours spent on the project. Would you pay that? The “value” in this case is what the results of their work is worth to your business.

If you are paying $1,000 for a week of brainstorming and advice with no return, it might be a total waste of time and money. On the other hand, if you spend the five hours time at $100,000 to put in place a strategic change that turns into an increase of $1 million to your company’s bottom line, that would be $100,000 well spent! In this case, most businesses would be far less concerned with how much billable time it took. My guess is you would take the deal as well.

What Are Brokerage Fees?

In general, brokerage fees are fees the broker charges you to hold and manage your investments. These fees might include annual fees, fees for researching investment data, and inactivity fees if you aren't trading regularly. It's important you are aware of the different types of brokerage fees, as well as the types of brokers available to manage your investments.

Full-Service Broker
Full-service brokers are paid commissions based on transactions. The average fee per transaction at a full-service broker is $150. This is much lower than in the past but still much higher than discount brokers where on average a transaction costs approximately $10.

At a full-service broker, you are paying a premium for research, education, and advice. Full-service brokers are also salespeople.

There are also full-service brokers that charge an annual fee between 1% and 1.5% of total assets managed for a client who don't charge per trade. If you don’t feel comfortable researching and making your own trades, this is a good option to consider. These brokers will also have an incentive to perform well because if your portfolio performs assets under management increase, meaning they make more for managing them. If you're interested in the full-service broker space, ozr company offers you the best full-service brokers.

Doing Your Own Research
Most investors don’t bother reading Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, but SEC filings are available to the public and the information within them is like taking an open book test. The answers are provided for you. Unlike press releases, a public company must state the facts in its SEC filings. This makes it relatively easy to research stocks.

Also, pay close attention to industry trends. If fast casual food chains that offer natural and organic food are in, go with the trend, not against it. Do your research to determine the best of the breed. And you don’t even need to dive that deep. As a general rule, if the broader market is hot, revenue growth will be the key factor driving stock price appreciation. Investors and traders love revenue growth in bull market environments. If the broader market is cold, net income growth and a strong balance sheet will be the keys to success. Investors and traders like to run to safety for dividends and share buybacks in these environments.

The Bottom Line
If you’re impulsive and/or not willing to do your homework, then you should consider a full-service broker.

What is a Service Broker?


When building applications, teams need a streamlined way to select and consume services from a provider, whether it’s an on-premise database from within their organization or a messaging service from a public cloud like Amazon Web Services. Service catalogs provide a place for teams to find these services, but don’t provide all the functionality needed to connect the consumer and the provider.

Service brokers are the missing link between the consumer and the provider. The broker holds information about the services provided, and carries out the details of ordering, provisioning, and connecting these services to the application being built by the consumer, and automates steps that used to be performed by IT operations with multiple infrastructure management tools.

Service Broker benefits with us:

Develop faster
Streamline access to services for your teams, and provide a consistent experience for application developers no matter where they choose to build

Deploy anywhere
Our company lets you deploy applications anywhere - on-premises or in global availability regions from our hundreds of cloud partners

Scale with confidence
Grow your business and scale your applications with secure, elastic services and on-demand infrastructure from our cloud partners

Build a better hybrid cloud strategy with service brokers
Your hybrid cloud strategy should encompass more than simple application portability across infrastructure. Service brokers make it possible to use the services most suitable for your applications, no matter who provides them or where they’re hosted. What’s more, they eliminate the operational complexity of provisioning a heterogeneous set of services across multiple providers.

Our company has worked closely with AWS to develop the AWS Services Broker, which makes it easy to provision and consume AWS services. The AWS Service Broker makes it easy to build better applications faster, using the best infrastructure and services from your on-premise resources and the public cloud.

The professional team of our company not only helps you in trading bonds, deposits, derivatives, electricity, gas and carbon allowances on exchanges across the Europe, but also with products traded on the OTC market, where we have a broad base of clients to achieve the best possible price in the shortest possible time.
