Today, marketing data is critical to the success of any business. Businesses can use it to tailor their marketing campaigns to their target audiences and understand their customers better.
However, it takes work to build a marketing data business in-house. In an ever-changing market, staying relevant requires significant resources and expertise.
That’s why businesses must find solutions that can help them overcome these challenges and succeed in the world of marketing data.
The buy-to-build approach
Creating a marketing data platform in-house can be a risky endeavor. For one, the costs associated with hiring and training a team can be significant—especially if you are looking for marketing data specialists.
Plus, developing a product from scratch can take a considerable amount of time, which can delay your entry into the market and potentially cost you business.

Mitigating risk with a buy-to-build approach
Building a marketing data business in-house can be risky for several reasons. Here are a few to keep in mind:
- Financial investment – For starters, developing a custom platform from scratch can require a significant investment, especially if you need to hire and train a team of specialized staff. This can be a daunting prospect for many businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, that may not have the resources to support a large-scale development project.
- Waste of time – Aside from the cost, building in-house can also be time-consuming. Depending on your requirements and the availability of resources, developing a custom platform can take months or even years.
- Talent scouting – And in-house talent scouting isn’t for the faint of heart. Finding the right people to develop and maintain a marketing data platform can be challenging, especially if you operate in a competitive or specialized market. You may need to search for, recruit, and hire skilled staff with marketing technology, data analysis, and software development expertise.
By choosing Aqfer, you are taking a buy-to-build approach to your marketing data business. This means you are using Aqfer’s pre-built solutions to build your products.
