Internal hire vs outsourced marketing team

Compare hiring internally with having us as your outsourced marketing department

Most internal marketing employees are generalists who have shallow knowledge of lot’s of things but might not be expert level at one particular activity. This runs the risk of spending money and time unnecessarily if the internal employee does not fully understand aspects such as SEO, PPC, Social Media and effective email marketing

Your core team comprises of an Account Manager, exec and assistant and will oversee all activities across your marketing operation.

Supporting them are the specialists in house with expertise in design, SEO, PPC and CRO. With this balance, you can ensure the right people are working on the right activities at all times.

Internal marketing employees are typically expected to deliver all activities across the function. 

This in most cases is unrealistic for a full time employee and requires more often than not additional support either in the form of further hires or agency support.

All the activities required will be distributed across your team of three within MS and to the experts ensuring enough time is spent on activities to maintain high standards, quality and output.

Business leaders are sometimes unable to clearly attribute what happens in marketing with growth of the business. This commonly leads to a decline in confidence when investing in new marketing initiatives

Along with communicating daily via Microsoft Teams we will also hold a formal monthly review meeting where we present back the data uncovering and clearly communicating what’s working, what isn’t working and subsequent ideas to ensure we are always pushing in the right direction.

It’s no secret that employees come and go. Just when we thought we had stability there is disruption due to marketing employees exiting the business.

With the average tenure in a marketing manager role around 2-3 years, any investment made in development can quickly feel it’s for another organisations benefit.

We have a high retention rate of people within Mitchell & Stones. In the event someone from your pod was to leave the business, we are structured in a way that knowledge and nuance retention is never solely with a single individual
