Having directed the PR and social media efforts of a Fortune 500 company for over eight (8) years in New Jersey, I contracted many agencies for advertising, digital, PR, and social media services. Today, I lead my own social media marketing and advertising agency, My BFF Social, based in my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Do you know the biggest difference between a marketing agency in New York vs Pittsburgh? Overhead costs.
The average price per square foot for office space in Manhattan reached $1,347 per square foot vs $22 for Pittsburgh, which represents a new record-high for the city in 2017. Now, I’m no mathmatician, but I’m pretty sure you don’t want to pay any fraction of your agency’s additional $1,325 in overhead costs for the same services you can get in Pittsburgh. Why not put that extra money back in your pocket or better yet, spend it on some new creative for your brand or business with My BFF Social Media, Marketing, Advertising, and Public Relations.
