So, what does a product designer actually do?

Designers are often expected to wear many different hats, so they need to be as flexible and multi-talented as they are creative. Product designers have spent a lot of time honing their problem-solving skills, so they’re in tune with who needs what and when—they understand people’s needs better than most. 

Product designers don't waste time creating nice-to-have products; they focus on solving problems and making lives easier by building innovative products and services people will actually use (and love).

They do all of this while staying true to your brand's voice and values by asking questions like:
How will we build it? 
Why should anyone care?
How will we market it?
Who's going to buy it?

Should I hire in-house or agency?

When you’re getting a product made, at some point you’re gonna have to decide where to source your product designer.
Hire an internal product designer in-house, pay them a salary and get them full-time.
The rates are initially lower than freelancers, plus they’ll be fully behind your company mission and can collaborate with your whole team. You can call on them whenever you need to.
Standard might vary, so it can be expensive and time-consuming if you need to re-hire. In the long-run, rates are higher because you need to cover tax, overheads, insurance and benefits.
Get a qualified team of specialists to take on all your design tasks.
High quality, industry-specific knowledge, great communication and help structuring your goals.
It is more expensive, and feedback loops are often long, so don’t do this if you need a quick turnaround or a one-off task. You might also encounter problems changing course mid-project. 
Anything else? What if I need the flexibility of a regular person plus the knowledge and assurance of an agency - without the super-high costs?

Scale up or scale down as needed, ask for help with any size project, agree a fixed cost or hourly rate up front, get direct communication and often a very fast turnaround.
