No Comments

So, you’ve recognized the potential of the internet. You’re convinced there’s more to social media posts than a couple of likes from your friends and family. And you’ve read that there’s more to a Google than a simple search. Well, you’re on the right track. Your business can benefit from a customized internet marketing strategy. Now you need to decide between hiring an internet marketing agency vs in-house team. Here’s what to consider when making the decision:


Whether you have an in-house team or an internet marketing agency, communication is essential. The digital marketing landscape is constantly evolving. And, regular communication allows your team to stay abreast and determine the best plan of action over the weeks, months, and years.

Yes, it may take more effort to reach out and contact a digital marketing agency, but with regular communication, you can have a near-seamless dialogue of valuable information. This then allows your business to make the best decisions on your side while your internet marketing agency continues to work to yield optimal results.

You can hire the most educated internet marketing or online advertising specialist out there. But, the truth is that experience is everything. With an in-house team, your company gets a focused view of your business and your business only. And, while you may see the fact that an internet marketing agency having multiple clients as a downside, the truth is that an agency has experience with an array of businesses. They’ve seen every situation and know the markets to start your internet marketing strategy on the best foot.


You may think outsourcing your digital marketing needs will cost an arm and a leg. But, the truth is that it isn’t always the case. An agency already has the tools and experts on staff to work with your business. They have the training and the resources. When you choose to hire an in-house team, you’re not only dishing out hours and hours on education, but you have to supply them with all new resources.

Not to mention, at agencies like Digital Resource, customized strategies allow you to choose services à la carte. So, instead of trying to pick a package that provides what you need and hope it’s the right price, you can determine your budget and priorities on a month-to-month basis. This gives you the freedom to make ongoing decisions without any burden.
