[Infographic] Should You Hire or Contract Your Marketing Department?


Determining the right marketing needs for your organization requires a balance of different considerations: size, cost, skills, and tacit industry knowledge. This is why it is often a difficult decision for marketing execs to find the precise solution for their department. According to Harvard Business Review, 53% of surveyed marketing execs plan to contract out their marketing department.
