If any of you have read THAT previous post of mine, you’d probably know by now that hiring digital marketing agencies in Singapore is hard.

However, that increases in sales doesn’t mean you earn more than $5,000 back. You might still lose money to ads and agency fees. Fixed fees bring about a conflict of interest.
