Outsource Marketing Cost Analysis – Outsource at Half the Cost
When smaller businesses consider hiring full-time staff to handle functions like marketing, the costs can be expensive. If the business can afford a mid- or even senior-level marketing employee, they have to include benefits and perhaps bonus costs as part of their expense.
By comparison, outsource marketing resources don’t require a full-time salary and certainly don’t require benefits or other overhead. Outsource resources may work on a retainer, hourly, or project basis, with costs that may range from $2,000 to 8,000 per month for a senior-level professional ($24,000 – 96,000 per year), depending on the amount and type of work that needs to be outsourced.
If we conservatively estimate benefits at 35% of salary and a 30% bonus, costs are as follows:
|Experience||Salary||Benefits (35%)||Bonus (20%)||Annual Total|
A cost scenario for working with an outsource marketing firm might be as follows:
|Senior-Level Pro.||Monthly Fee||Months||Annual Total|
|Hourly, Retainer, or % of Project||$2,000 – $8,000||12||$24,000 – $96,000|
