How Much Should You Pay For Managed IT Services?

Outsourced or managed IT services offer business owners some great options for their information infrastructure. You can get all your technology managed or simply get help when your in-house techs are swamped. Managed IT provides you with an experienced team of pros who can handle everything from your network security to your important business applications.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Full-Time IT Tech?

Some small businesses hire one or more in-house IT technicians on a full-time basis to handle their technology infrastructure. Depending on where you live, an IT technician might earn between $40,000-$60,000 annually. In addition, you’ll have to provide insurance, paid vacations, and a range of benefits.

The biggest problem for most companies comes when your IT tech gets a year or so of experience under their belt. They often begin to look around to see if they can find a better-paying job and eventually they leave you for a larger company that offers better benefits. This is practically inevitable. It happens frequently. You put a lot of time into training employees and then they leave you for another firm. Now you must start all over again.
