By John Dirugeris, Owner of VAW Media

In today’s fast-paced digital world, the decision to outsource marketing to a specialized marketing agency can be both exciting and daunting for businesses.


As the owner of VAW Media, a marketing agency that has helped numerous businesses amplify their online presence, I've seen firsthand the impact of this decision. In this blog, we'll explore the benefits and disadvantages of outsourcing your company's marketing to an agency like ours.

Benefits of Partnering with a Marketing Agency

  1. Expertise and Experience: A marketing agency brings a wealth of knowledge to the table. With our team at VAW Media, clients tap into the expertise of professionals who are up-to-date with the latest trends, tools, and strategies in digital marketing.

  2. Cost-Effectiveness: Hiring a full-time in-house team can be expensive. By outsourcing to a marketing agency, you get access to a team of experts without the overhead costs associated with full-time employees.

  3. Fresh Perspective: Sometimes, an external marketing agency can offer a fresh, unbiased perspective on your marketing strategy. At VAW Media, we pride ourselves on bringing innovative ideas that internal teams might overlook.

  4. Scalability: With a marketing agency, scaling your efforts up or down based on business needs becomes easier. We at VAW Media can quickly adapt strategies and resources to meet changing market demands.

  5. Access to Advanced Tools: Marketing agencies often have access to advanced tools and technologies. This means your company benefits from these tools without the need to invest in them directly.

Disadvantages of Outsourcing to a Marketing Agency

  1. Less Control: When you outsource to a marketing agency, you might feel like you’re losing some control over your marketing activities. It’s crucial to choose an agency like VAW Media that values collaboration and transparency.

  2. Understanding Your Business: An external marketing agency might take time to fully understand the nuances of your business. It’s important for us at VAW Media to spend time getting to know each client’s unique needs and industry.

  3. Dependency: Relying on a marketing agency can create a dependency. It’s important to maintain an understanding of your marketing strategies even when outsourcing.

  4. Communication: Effective communication can be a challenge, especially if the marketing agency is not located nearby. We at VAW Media prioritize clear, consistent communication to mitigate this.

  5. Varied Quality: The quality of services can vary from one marketing agency to another. It’s critical to choose a reputable agency like VAW Media that has a proven track record of delivering results.

In conclusion, outsourcing your marketing to a marketing agency has its benefits and disadvantages. It's all about finding the right marketing agency that aligns with your business goals and values.


At VAW Media, we strive to provide our clients with top-tier marketing services that are tailored to their unique needs, ensuring that the benefits far outweigh the disadvantages.
