Some small- to medium-sized businesses struggle with a basic question: what is the most cost-effective way to handle IT? In some cases, they may believe that it is easier to hire a part-time or full-time dedicated IT employee to handle not only their digital resources but also their internet-based marketing than to outsource these jobs.
