Q & Answers: Why is using an agency better than hiring?
Have you ever wanted someone to come in, solve your problems, and get the hell out? If you answered “Yes.” then you should hire an agency.
But, let’s back up. You probably landed on this page because you have a big project or problem that you’re trying to solve and you’re wondering if you should hire full-time employees for your internal team or hire an agency.
Maybe your current team can’t seem to get the project off the ground because they are stretched thin with other projects or even worse, the project is stalled because your team isn’t sure how to proceed with the given resources available.
Whatever the reason, we’re a digital agency and we’re here to provide elegant solutions to your biggest problems.
But, aren’t agencies expensive?
Although agencies have a pricey hourly price tag, they are less expensive than hiring a full-time employee. When you factor in costs such as salary, parking, paid time off, training, meals, insurance, and the possibility of turnover, full-time employees are more costly.
Agencies on the other hand don’t come with hidden costs outside of their hourly rates. They don’t take time off, need training, or insurance benefits. However, whether or not you want to provide them with free meals is up to you.
But, won’t my project take longer?
The job of an agency is to come in and get the job done. This allows agencies to be more cost-effective and provide a viable solution to other businesses for long-term job stability. I mean, if agencies didn’t operate this way, would anyone even hire them?
Agencies also have a surgical or extremely precise way of problem-solving and are able to work this way because they have a broad range of expertise in a lot of different disciples. They also have experience in many different industries they can leverage to reduce the time it takes to solve a problem and implement a solution for a project.
Hiring an agency vs. hiring a full-time employee.
What are the biggest benefits of hiring an agency? Let’s take a look and see why an agency is better than hiring a full-time employee.
An agency will tackle your biggest problems, faster.
Like a military strikeforce, an agency will strategically storm in and tackle a problem then leave. Unlike a single marketing employee who often wears many hats, agencies are only focused on solving one problem at a time. Therefore they can dedicate all their resources and efforts to solving the task at hand in a more efficient way.
It’s more cost-effective to hire an agency.
Agencies are designed to be hired for specific projects, unlike full-time employees who occupy the halls of your company year-round. Plus, like mentioned above, agencies don’t require an annual salary, paid time off, training, benefits, or parking unlike full-time employees making them more cost-effective in the long run.
Agencies hire the best people.
Because agencies hire the best of the best for specific disciplines, you’ll benefit from these craft experts who are up-to-date on the latest trends and technology.
