How many of us have our own startups? Oh, I can see an array of hands being raised! Well, today the startup culture is well prevailing across the country. But then, with the startups, comes the issue of budgetary constraints. We may not be on a gravy train and hence willing to shed out money carefully.
Or perhaps, it could be the other way round when we have been born with a silver spoon and can hire companies to do the work for us, but again we miss the dedication that these companies wouldn’t provide.
So, the question remains the same and acts as a bee in our bonnet. And what is the question? Well, should we go for agencies or be satisfied with the freelancers? Well, I would like to provide you with both the sides of the coin and you can choose whichever suits you, alright? So, are you all ready to begin the journey? Here we go!
Well, this is one thing in which freelancers excel in. The agencies cannot compete with the freelancers in their skill. This is because these freelancers do what they are the best at and nobody can beat them. So, no compromise on the quality! On the flip side of the coin, the agencies are a mixed breed of people so one cannot be very sure of the quality and skills of the person involved.
Well, you can’t beat the agencies in this one. No matter how great the freelancer is, but the amount of connections and networking that you will get by hiring an agency is incomparable. These agencies may even know companies in other areas of specialization and can get all your work done without any hassles!
Well, undoubtedly freelancers are way cheaper than the agencies. Thinking why so? Well, these agencies involve a lot of overhead costs and hence may charge you double the amount. While in the case of freelancers, they only get paid for their work in particular. So, cost savings ring in with freelancers!
Often when we hire agencies, a lot of tasks are put to disposal the very same time. So, while one portion of the agency may be focusing on content, the other part may just be carving out strategies for marketing. But the same wouldn’t be there in freelancing. You need to hire different freelancers for different tasks at disposal and then handling these different freelancers becomes quite an uphill task. So, be careful with your choices.
So, friends, I have told you about both the sides of the coin. It is for you to decide which way you have to go according to your needs. Nothing in this world is the best. Some things are good for somebody while they may be a curse for somebody else. So, choose what you need and then nobody can stop your business from basking in the glory of success.
