Need professional help from an ad agency or some such thing

I've been doing my own marketing for the several years that I've been running my online business but it's getting to be too much for just one person now with the site expanding.

I'm not a trained businessman or anything like that, everything I've done I've learnt about as I've gone along. Are there things like online ad agencies that will take care of buying ad space for you, creating campaigns on various networks and sites, recommend changes to the site, possible redesigning of the layout and placing of ads etc etc etc etc? I'm pretty sure such things exist for the very large companies but I'm a relatively small biz.

Any know of any such companies that could help in my situation?

So there's no such thing? There's a gap in the market.

There are tons of agencies or consultants that do this full-time. Are you looking for someone local, or is telecommuting an option?

Oh, nothing local - I'm looking for something 100% online.

I could be wrong, but I think some of the big agency's that do this are advertising.com and doubleclick.com.

Thanks - I'll check them out, I hope they cater to smaller companies.

Anyone else know any relevant agencies?

In my opinion you'd be better off hiring someone to do it in house.

It may take some more ramp up time but it should be a lot more profitable if you find the right person.

True, but you could always allow them to telecommute and then maybe have face to face meetings once a month or something. You can be creative and make it work. You have to have a trust in the person you hire though.
