Working with an Inhouse Team Versus Hiring a Specialist from an Agency

Now, you have two options. The first one is to hire an inhouse team and another is to hire a specialist from an agency
(who can work as your extended team). Based on your business requirements and objectives you are trying to achieve, you must choose the option that best suits your business model.

Let's discuss how these two are different by digging into their pros and cons.

Working with an inhouse team
  • It enables quick and easy communication without any geographical or time zone barriers.
  • It helps you to meet tight deadlines with faster revisions and approval.
  • You have complete control over the tasks assigned.
  • You can be a part of the execution and not just oversee it from far away.
  • The cost of hiring an inhouse team includes recruitment, training, infrastructure expenses, paid leaves, and overheads.
  • At times, it so happens that the professionals you have hired do not have the expertise that you are looking for or the task has a steep learning curve. In such cases, you might have to pay additional expenses for staff upgradation.
  • As you have to constantly manage the team, you cannot focus on the core business growth strategies.
Hiring an Expert from an Agency
  • Hiring an agency is a cost-effective option as it lets you save the training and infrastructure expenses that come along with the option of hiring inhouse.
  • If you work with an agency, you get access to a huge pool of talent and you can choose an expert according to the skillsets you are looking for.
  • It is a flexible and more scalable option as you can hire more resources as and when your business grows. You can even scale down, if need arises.
  • Agency professionals stay in the know of the trends and are therefore, more informed than the inhouse professionals.
  • It is difficult to communicate with a Mailchimp developer sitting remotely and it might lead to iscommunication.
  • The time zone barriers can lead to lack of control of the allotted tasks. You might have to wait for the professional's response and it can often get frustrating, especially when you have to complete a task on short notice.

3 Pro Tips to Help You Find the Right
Mailchimp Expert

  1. Ascertain the "WHO" and "WHY"

    First of all, it is important to determine why you want to hire a Mailchimp expert. Ask yourself whether you are looking for a campaign manager, a developer, an automation expert or migration and integration expert. The next thing to ask yourself is the level of experience. How experienced should be the professional you are looking for and what should be the skills to look for?

    You must also figure out whether an in-house team would suit your business needs better or a seasoned professional from a remote agency.

  2. Have a clear idea about where you should look for experts

    If you are looking for an individual professional or solopreneur, there are several freelance platforms like Upwork, Freelancer, Fiverr, Airtasker, and Peopleperhour from where you can hire the right Mailchimp expert for your business.

    On the other hand, if you are looking for an in-house team, you must search on job portals like Glassdoor and Zoho.

    If none of these options work for you, Mailchimp has something to make things really simple for you. Just log on to their website and you will get access to their experts directory.

    You can filter by location, language, and specialty and it will display a list of all the relevant companies that can help you.

    Mailchimp Email Development

    Once you have shortlisted the companies that perfectly match your needs, you can connect with them by filling out a brief.

    They will then get in touch with you and you can kickstart your marketing strategy if everything falls in place.

  3. Define the soft skills that the expert must have

    Apart from all the technical and professional expertise that a Mailchimp expert should have,
    here are some soft skills that are equally important:

    • Mailchimp Email Development Icon
      Impeccable problem-solving skills
    • Mailchimp Email Development Icon

Budgeting it Right

Whenever you are looking forward to hiring an expert Mailchimp developer, you must budget it right according to the task you are looking for.

  1. Mailchimp email developer The average salary of an in-house email developer is $50,868.
    Mailchimp Email Developer Salary
    On the other hand, if you want to hire a freelance Mailchimp Developer, you can do so by paying $40-50 per hour without worrying about any additional expenses.
  2. Mailchimp campaign manager You would have to pay $66,813 on average to an inhouse Mailchimp campaign manager. If you hire for the same role through a freelance portal, you might be able to hire the right talent at around $30 per hour.
  3. Mailchimp automation expert A Mailchimp automation expert with experience of less than a year can expect to earn an average income of $48145. After gaining an experience of around 1-4 years, the pay rises to $58599 on average. A mid-career professional can earn an average total compensation of $67913 while an experienced automation expert with 10-19 years of experience can make $69457. If we are to talk about US salaries, the same pay scale goes down in Chicago and Minneapolis taking into consideration the cost of living in those cities, while it is 24% higher in San Francisco. These rates translate to around $24 per hour when you plan to hire a freelancer.
  4. Mailchimp data integration and migration specialist The range of income of Mailchimp data integration and migration specialists falls between $114032 and $147979 in the United States. These figures are influenced by factors like education, certifications, level of experience, and additional skills. Businesses who want to hire a freelancer can do so at an average hourly rate of $41 to $60, depending on the experience level of the professional.

How to Nail the Hiring Process?

I've tried to simplify the hiring process by defining 5 simple steps.

  1. Draft a clear job advertisement or job brief Your job advertisement must convey your expectations and the roles and responsibilities of the professional without any ambiguity. If you are planning to post an ad on a freelance portal, make sure your brief contains all the details about the task that you need to get done, the pricing, and the timeline.
  2. Score the candidates based on their resume and qualities you are looking for According to your requirements, have your own scoring system with the help of which you can shortlist all the right candidates. Carry out candidate profiling by going through their LinkedIn profiles or portfolios on freelance portals. Look for recommendations, reviews, and client feedback to get a clear idea about their past work.
  3. Interview the right people The primary interview or the first round is usually about understanding the interviewee's background and soft skills like communication, logic, and approach at work.
  4. Conduct the technical round Once you think he or she is a good fit for your organization, you can go to the next round that will test whether the candidate can carry out the responsibilities well. For example: In case of a Mailchimp campaign manager, you must test whether the candidate can use the segmentation features or merge fields feature effectively or not. For the Mailchimp automation expert, you can create a dummy ecommerce store with a handful of subscribers and ask him or her to set the workflow of cart abandonment email series. You can even set a deadline to check whether they can keep their calm and work well in tight deadlines. It's a golden chance to check some soft skills as well. See whether they are asking you questions, how they are communicating with you, and you will be able to gauge the professionalism.
  5. Review the test response The last and final step is about evaluating their work and selecting the one who is closest to what you expected them to do. Subsequently, the HR department will come into picture and if the candidate's salary expectations match the organization's budget, you have a new recruit! Congratulations.


Mailchimp email experts can take away all the burden that you might be having with respect to email marketing. We hope these tips will relieve you of any apprehension and make it easy to decide how you want to go about it.
