Do you remember that breathtaking scene from “Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets”, where Harry aboard his Nimbus 2000, is pitted against Malfoy to win the game of Quidditch? Email marketing is the Nimbus 2000, and you are the captain of this game of Quidditch i.e. your business.

Winning the game and getting an edge over your competition is important if you want to increase business profitability. So, who would your Harry Potter be- an outsourced company or in-house developers?

Making the right choice at the start can help you win the game of email marketing, and convert better. Both choices have their set of advantages but, what you choose entirely depends on the goals and needs of your business.

What do You Want – Control or Flexibility?

In-House vs outsourcing

The Cost of Ownership

45% of the email marketers are concerned with cost of application and services, according to a survey conducted by The Relevancy Group.

An in-house developer may seem like a cost-effective option at first. All you need is someone who can take care of email template production, right from the ideation stage. Wish it were truly as simple as it sounds.

Apart from the developer, you need to invest in an email service provider, relevant hardware and a database marketer for effective implementation of your email marketing strategies. You will add not just hiring costs but also maintenance costs for both the resources and the infrastructure

On the other hand, when you outsource your email template production, you simply pay the price for the template. The company you have outsourced to will have their email template production set-up, thus saving you the unnecessary costs.

How You can Win with Dedicated Developer

Most businesses prefer in-house because they have a developer dedicated to their business. If you have a similar reason for going in-house despite the costs, here’s something you should know:

    • A lot of outsourcing companies offer dedicated developers for your business, similar to your in-house developers.
    • The advantage of hiring dedicated developers from outsourcing companies is that you can hire a developer/s or a team as long you want to run a project. So, during months where there is no campaign, you are saving money on cost overheads incurred for in-house developer.
    • When you outsource to an email template production company, you can be rest assured that all production requirements can be taken care of, besides facilitating quick and hassle-free execution
    • A dedicated Accounts Manager should ideally be your single point-of-contact in the outsourcing company, who will manage all your template needs.
    • Dedicated developers working remotely also saves you the hassles of recruitment, infrastructure costs, retention, perks and liabilities – while off
    • ering sophisticated quality service.
