The Advantages of Using Agency vs In-House Solutions

By Onyx Health | 10th June 2021

Read Time: 2 minutes


Have you ever wondered why businesses use agencies? Doesn’t it make more sense to have your own marketing manager or in-house team?  Aren’t agencies supposed to be expensive? 

The agency vs in-house debate is an age-old conundrum in the communication industry. The crux of the issue is whether it is more cost-effective to have an in-house team dealing with your communication activity vs the broader perspective provided by an agency 

This comes down to a fundamental question about what is best for your business and will deliver return on investment.  

What makes Onyx Health unique is that we are driven by knowledge to create success. It is our expertise in the healthcare and life science market that makes us stand out in the crowded agency market.
