By outsourcing your marketing your business opens the door to new opportunities, insights and efficiencies.
Today there is no shortage of marketing channels available for businesses to choose from to reach their audience. But this can create confusion and lead to a haphazard marketing approach, if you don’t have a dedicated resource to plan and execute your marketing initiatives. If you are thinking about outsourcing your marketing in 2020, you will find no shortage of options available to help you market your business. From freelancers and marketing consultancies to hiring your own in-house team, businesses have more choices than ever before, especially when it comes to digital marketing.
As your business grows, you will need to consider how your marketing will be handled, including whether to build an internal marketing team or empower your brand by outsourcing your marketing. Just like you outsource your accounting, taxation, human resources, legal services and IT, why not consider the benefits of outsourcing your business’s marketing and content management?
Five reasons to outsource your business’s marketing over hiring an in-house team
Why piece together individual talents when you can outsource your business’s marketing requirements to an experienced marketing agency that can handle everything for you? One of the major advantages of hiring a marketing consultancy is a professional experience. A marketing consultancy will have specific knowledge in a wide range of industries and markets, along with experience facing a diverse range of scenarios and challenges never encountered by many newer business owners. Having a knowledgeable and experienced staff at your side can produce immediate results for owners, helping to quickly get your marketing efforts off the ground.
It can be difficult to find great in-house employees with all the marketing skills that businesses need like branding, SEO, graphic design and content management. By hiring a marketing consultancy, you’ll not only have the necessary tools to achieve your vision for success but have access to the agency’s suite of creative service partners at your fingertips.
For example, a marketing consultant can assist clients in everything from rebranding their company image and website, developing their print and direct mail campaigns, and creating a social strategy to boost SEO and PPC campaigns. With a marketing agency, a client may choose to utilise one service or all them–whereas with an in-house team, businesses are limited in what they can achieve.
Fresh Perspective & Inspiration
Another major advantage of hiring a marketing consultancy is a new and objective perspective. An outside marketing team can help inject new blood into marketing efforts, helping to identify unseen opportunities and enhance current campaigns. One example is content management. With more B2B companies looking to broaden their business reach and establish themselves as experts in industry, a marketing agency can significantly enhance a brand’s approach to business social media, including how they’re perceived by their audience.
Speed, Efficiency, and Consistency
Business owners are often forced to wear several hats. This will include tackling aspects of the business you’re unfamiliar with, such as branding, SEO, content plans and video or podcast marketing. With only so much time in the day, it’s important your marketing approach doesn’t suffer from time restraints or inexperience. By outsourcing your marketing and hiring a marketing consultancy who you can partner with, you can easily solve this dilemma.
More Affordable Than Hiring In-House
The cost of hiring and maintaining a team of in-house marketers can be very expensive. For smaller business, this expense may be too much to afford. One of the more surprising benefits of hiring a marketing consultancy is cost-effectiveness. Along with providing a breadth of knowledge, objectivity, experience, and skillset, a marketing agency is almost always more affordable compared to hiring a full-time marketing team. A marketing consultancy can tailor services to meet the ebb and flow of your workload, which means you can scale up or down the level of marketing support, on a month by month basis.
