Like it or not, marketing is key to any business, especially if you want to scale. No matter how amazing your product or service is, no one’s going to buy it if you don’t get the word out.
The thing is, many business owners struggle with marketing. A lot of them have great ideas or are skilled craftsmen, but they wouldn’t know where to start when it comes to promoting their business.
Fortunately, you can outsource your marketing efforts too. Here are seven reasons why you should (i.e., how outsourcing can help you scale with less risk):
1. Significant cost savings.
Hiring your own marketing is costly. You’d need to onboard local talent, provide them with equipment, and lease additional space for them. We haven’t even talked about training costs, which can also be substantial.
When you outsource a team, you’ll only need to pay for their compensation, which is often negotiable. Remote digital marketers generally work from home and have their own equipment. Best of all, they already have the skills you need.
Outsourcing can be carried on an as-needed basis. This means you can take on additional digital marketing staff with no long-term commitments, should you be hesitant about the results of their efforts.
Better still, remote Filipino digital marketing talents can start pretty much immediately. If you’ve already started to scale up your operations and can no longer wait, this is especially convenient.
3. Access to a wider talent pool.
Wouldn’t know how to get started with marketing your business? Don’t know anyone in your area who does? With outsourcing, you’ll have instant access to digital marketing talent from pretty much anywhere.
Imagine what sort of insights and expertise they can bring into your business.
4. Streamlined business processes.
Speaking of expertise, outsourced talent can help you operate more efficiently. Remote digital marketers can assist you in coming up with better processes for your marketing campaigns, among other things.
These will not only help boost your business’ marketing efforts, but it will also maximise every dollar spent on them.
5. Freedom to focus on core capabilities.
Sure, marketing might not be your strong suit. But expanding your product line to suit emerging trends and customer preferences could be. Or perhaps it’s in providing a niche service that your clients need.
Whatever your core capabilities or your company is, outsourcing your marketing activities will free you up to focus on them better.
6. Consistency in marketing campaigns.
It can’t be helped. Sometimes, people leave for greener pastures elsewhere, and that’s okay.
However, if your key marketing personnel leave, it can be disastrous for your ongoing campaigns. If you work with an outsourcing agency, on the other hand, you won’t need to put anything on hold. They’ll definitely have people on the team to work on the projects you have in the pipeline anytime.
7. Better stability.
One of the downsides of hiring in-house is that you’re responsible for the employees’ welfare too. You’ll need to take care of their health insurance, pension payments, and so on.
With outsourcing, you only need to worry about two things. First, whether your remote team is doing a great job or not. Second, paying them the agreed-upon compensation.
And in some cases, an agency even takes care of the second one for you.
Speaking of stability, Remote Staff has been recruiting and onboarding remote Filipino talent for various AU entrepreneurs for more than ten years. Apart from providing constant support to ensure smooth and long-lasting working relationships, we also take care of things like payroll management and mandatory government benefits.
