Marketing agencies can be a mixed bag...” - Stephen Johnson


While some marketing agencies provide great value, many business owners have stories of disappointment and frustration with agencies that overpromise, underdeliver, and sometimes engage in unethical practices.

If you're considering taking your marketing in-house, this blog will guide you through the common challenges with agencies, the benefits of managing your own campaigns, and how Facebook advertising tools can transform your marketing strategy.

1. Agency Problems and How They Can Impact Your Business

Agencies often promise to handle everything from strategy to execution, but the reality is that many fall short. Small business owners frequently report horror stories, including agencies stealing pixel data, locking clients out of ad accounts, and even holding businesses hostage by withholding crucial data. This behavior can leave business owners frustrated and unable to access their own marketing resources.

Moreover, agencies can be costly, with retainers often exceeding $5,000 to $20,000 per month. Despite this expense, many clients find that their agencies fail to deliver the expected results, leading to significant financial losses and wasted time. For small business owners, these issues can be devastating, leading to a sense of helplessness and distrust toward agencies. This is why many are turning to in-house marketing solutions.

2. The Benefits of In-House Marketing

Transitioning to in-house marketing offers several advantages, including greater control, flexibility, and creativity. When you manage your own marketing, you have a team focused solely on your business, allowing for tailored campaigns that align with your brand's vision and goals. This shift also eliminates the middleman, enabling you to make real-time adjustments without waiting for agency approval.

In-house marketing allows for a more cohesive strategy and reduces the risk of miscommunication. When your team is in the same office, it's easier to collaborate, brainstorm, and execute creative ideas. This approach also allows you to allocate resources more efficiently, focusing on what truly works for your business rather than following an agency's generalized strategy.

3. The Power of the Facebook Pixel and Lookalike Audiences

A critical component of successful Facebook advertising is the Facebook Pixel. This small piece of code tracks user behavior on your website, allowing you to create custom audiences and lookalike audiences. Custom audiences help you retarget users who have shown interest in your products or services, while lookalike audiences allow you to expand your reach to similar users.

The ability to create lookalike audiences is a game-changer for marketing. Using data from the Facebook Pixel, you can find millions of new potential customers who share similar characteristics with your best clients. This approach can dramatically expand your marketing reach, often at a lower cost than traditional advertising methods. By leveraging these tools, business owners can build highly effective ad campaigns and achieve better results.

4. Success Stories: Proof That In-House Marketing Works

The story of Sheree, a business owner who took her marketing in-house, illustrates the potential benefits of this approach. Initially, she was earning just $900 per month, but after learning how to run Facebook ads herself, she increased her revenue to $50,000-$60,000 per month. This transformation happened within a few months, proving that with the right training and mindset, anyone can take control of their marketing and achieve remarkable results.

Sheree's success isn't an isolated case. Many other business owners have experienced similar transformations by taking control of their marketing. By eliminating the agency middleman, business owners can learn to run effective Facebook ads and other marketing campaigns, leading to higher profits and greater business growth.


Managing your marketing in-house offers a range of benefits, from greater control to better results. By understanding the pitfalls of agency-led marketing and the power of tools like the Facebook Pixel and lookalike audiences, you can create successful campaigns that drive growth and profitability. If you're considering taking your marketing in-house, now is the time to make the switch.
