Ask to See Samples of Previous Work
It’s important to ask agencies for samples of previous work. If a company is not willing to provide you with samples of previous work, it’s probably best to move on and select another agency. This is the best way to understand the quality of work that an agency can produce. Be sure to select a range of different types of work so that you get a better understanding of the agency’s capabilities. You may also want to consider hiring an agency that has a portfolio online. Although this may seem like an unusual choice, it can be helpful to get a better idea of what an agency’s work looks like.
