Is It Time To Consider Outsource Marketing

First, let’s be clear – when we use the term “outsource marketing”, we don’t mean sending it overseas, but hiring an external marketing agency. Look at outsourced marketing as a full-service marketing department that exists outside your company, they are essentially an extension of your team and are more consultative and long term rather than Digital or Advertising Agencies that are project based – need a website – great they will do it, need business cards – they can design them etc. (you get the gist!)

Most small businesses don’t have a fulltime marketing person or team in-house, yet they know they need to undertake and invest in marketing to increase business. We know that finding the time to do everything you should be doing can be a challenge and that small business owners are always looking for ways to streamline their business functions. By outsourcing your marketing you can focus on what you’re good at and your primary job.

With outsource marketing you get a team of marketing professionals at a much lesser cost, and save on overheads and recruiting. It’s expensive to hire a full time Marketing Manager especially one that is highly experienced. Outsource Marketing is a fixed cost allowing businesses to be able to budget and reduce costs.

A marketing agency generally has a more diverse skillset than one marketing employee does. It’s really not possible for one in-house person to be able to do everything and agency can. Agencies are more up to date with trends, methods and technologies and have access to wider resources. Using a marketing agency gives you more flexibility as they can scale their resources to suit your projects and you only pay for the services you use.

Using a Marketing Agency can give you a fresh perspective and an objective viewpoint. It’s easy to become too involved in your business that you may miss opportunities. An agency will provide strategic direction and valuable insights.

Outsource Marketing can be an attractive option for many small business, maybe it’s something you should consider for your business? Gloss Digital can help and become your instant marketing department.
