Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
1. You are matched with an experienced 150birds Strategist who is about to become your favorite person on the planet for a fraction of the cost of an internal hire. Strategists never handle more than five clients at maximum.
2. Your strategist develops and manages a team of experts who have been rigorously vetted and consistently receive superb feedback from other clients.
3. You pay a fixed monthly subscription fee and can scale your program up or down for less than what it would cost if you sourced, hired, trained, and managed the experts for every new channel yourself, all billed and managed through one partner.
Can I access your network without the help of a strategist?
Platforms like MarketerHire and Upwork give companies direct access to tens of thousands of contractors to manage themselves. However, this comes at the expense of cohesive strategy development, consistency across channels, quality control, and time management.
At 150birds, every single client is paired with a Strategist, thus giving you one *source of truth* for all marketing discussions. This crucial element of our partnerships allows us to understand your day-to-day needs and build a team bespoke for you. You won’t remember how managing marketing was done without one.
How does 150birds make money?
At 150birds, you receive access to our top-quality service specialists at a fixed monthly subscription fee. We take a predetermined percentage of the specialist’s rate for the cost of managing the project, which means the cost is exactly the same to you as if you found them in the wild. You get access to amazing specialty experts, we get to effectively work with businesses of all shapes and sizes, and experts get free lead generation and project management. It's a win for all parties involved.

How is 150birds different from an agency?
Marketing agencies over-hire generalists, leading to inflated rates, limited ability to adopt new market trends, agencies hiring their own freelancers, marking up costs, and general lack of specialization expertise. In response, many brands hire an array of specialized agencies with the intention of higher quality work and cost efficiencies. At best, this often plays out as decent project-based work done in silos, leading to an inconsistent marketing message, unforeseen fees, and below-average funnel conversion rates.
150birds is a marketing platform that provides a holistic marketing strategy, team management, and service-specific expertise. We’ve developed a network of vetted specialists who each execute one service specialty for our clients, ensuring you truly get to work with the best. Our in-house strategists manage and report on these specialists so you can actually get to that ever-growing to-do list. We work with you to develop the right strategy to ensure a custom 150birds flock is curated for what you need, adding or subtracting solutions with agility as future needs change.
