Is your business wanting to reach more customers, increase revenue and grow as a business? If so, you need to implement a marketing strategy. But is outsourcing a marketing agency or hiring someone in-house the way to go?
More and more companies now see the value of outsourcing their marketing and creative functions from a marketing agency. A marketing agency allows you to gain the skill set of an entire marketing team for less than the cost of one full-time employee. But, the benefits don’t stop there! Marketing agencies also bring years of knowledge and experience and are experts in developing marketing strategies. Similarly, in-house marketers are also knowledgeable, experienced and share expert advice. However, do they have a full-service skill set that will help you achieve your goals?
Full-time employee vs. Marketing agency
When hiring an in-house marketer, one of the most significant challenges is that it’s almost impossible for one person alone to possess all the necessary skills. It’s like trying to find a unicorn…
Full-service marketing agencies, on the other hand, such as Chilli, have an all-inclusive skill set. Allowing you to spend more time on your business and its big picture. When you have Chilli as an extension of your team you get:
- Creative Directors
- Graphic Designers
- Web Developers
- Social Media Managers
- Content Writers
- Marketing Strategists
- Photo & Videographers
Additionally, when hiring a full-time marketer, there will be inefficiencies, including annual leave, public holidays, and sick leave. On average, your full-time employee will take an annual 20 days of leave, ten days of public holidays, and ten days of sick leave. This totals to 40 days away, with eight weeks of full pay and no activity! Plus, losing out on approximately over $13,000.
By outsourcing your marketing to a full-service agency, you will have access to all skill sets and no inefficiencies. The team at Chilli have over 175 years of combined experience, which would cost you upwards of $700,000 a year in salaries alone. When working with Chilli, you can access all of this for less than the cost of one full-time employee!
