When talking about outsourcing, this usually means that other countries are involved. The disadvantage of this is you may never know if the company you have signed with is a reliable one. For one thing, its in another country. You still have to fly there just to check up on things.

Here Some Disadvantages Of Outsourcing Marketing

One of the biggest disadvantages of outsourcing is the risk
of losing sensitive data and the loss of confidentiality.

Loss of control - Here we are speaking of control over the finished product.

Tenuous relationship - It takes time to get into a rhythm when working with
someone else.

Catching a problem too late - Out of sight is out of mind, right? In your
case, that would be wrong.

Quality issues - No one is going to do things exactly as you do, but you
want them to try.

Since the outsourcing provider
may work with other customers, they might not give 100% time and attention to a
single company.
