Digital Marketing: In-House OR Outsource?

Do you outsource your online marketing or manage it in-house? Here are a few points to consider.

Going in-house

Pro: If you have the resources to hire and train a new team internally, who understand your company’s specific goals and objectives, it might be worth the investment in costs and time to get exactly what you want.

Con: If you don’t have the time or resources, running it in-house can prove costly. Building an in-house marketing team could cost you upwards of £250,000 a year.

Going outbound

Pro: Outsourcing will give you access to qualified and experienced professionals who are already highly knowledgeable about digital marketing.

Digital marketing tools can be costly. As agencies will already have these, this can save you over £30,000 a year on these tools alone.

Con: You will likely not be the only client, and other work may affect their availability if they have other commitments.

A blended approach

An inexperienced in-house team might not be capable or qualified to handle new digital marketing challenges that they have not encountered before. Such challenges may best be handled by an external agency or partner. Only pay for what you need.
