A lower budget like that usually isn't sufficient for a larger advertising agency. This presents both agencies and small businesses with a special challenge: There is a lot of awareness and content required for online marketing with specific regards to search engine optimization, but most companies don't have a budget adequately big enough for agencies in their area. What should one do in that case? What level of service can you expect from an agency with only a small budget? Alternatively, what other service opportunities are available for small businesses?
