So, when should I hire in-house?
Outsourcing your digital marketing almost always saves you money. But, there are a few exceptions.
Enterprise-level companies with thousands of products or employees should keep it in-house. That type of initiative requires massive internal resources to maintain.
Tech startups where the website is married to the app can also benefit from an in-house staff. But, even those can save by outsourcing the web design, social media, and advertising.
The bottom line.
For small to mid-sized companies, outsourcing just makes sense. An agency partner can save you money, get things done quickly and provide a wealth of experience to help you avoid costly missteps.
