Should you outsource Digital Marketing?
Digital marketing agencies exist for one main reason: they work. They are a great resource for any company that needs to outsource work. Sometimes you may have projects or initiatives that are beyond the scope of what your employees can do. An experienced agency can fill in the gaps, so you may not need to hire a full-time employee. This is why many companies and some smaller agencies consider Agency Outsourcing.
Over the past fifteen years, technology costs have shrunk. Just look at our televisions. Remember that $50,000 tv? It’s now $1,900. High definition televisions are now in almost every household due to the cost drops and improvement in technology. The same is true for digital marketing. As more and more digital marketing companies expand and increase their services to companies, it makes sense for non-digital marketing enabled companies to hire agencies experienced in digital marketing.
Experts in Digital Marketing
It’s extremely difficult for a company to find the right talent. People with the skills it takes to be an expert in SEO, PPC, content marketing, email marketing, and more, are in high demand. And expensive. It can take time and money to find the right candidate. Even if the new associate is experienced, it will take time to get up to speed with your company’s culture. If your new associate is familiar with all aspects of your marketing needs, will they be experts in all? Very doubtful.
Full-service agencies can ensure you have the experts you require for your digital marketing needs. For a fixed price for a certain project, or ongoing marketing support, you’ll be guaranteed an agency full of experts in all aspects of digital marketing.
Risk and Cost Aversion

If you are a smaller or mid-sized company, you may not want to invest in one or two new employees. When you outsource your work to an agency, you reduce your risks and long-term costs. Agencies also tend to specialize in certain niches that can make you like like a star to the client.
