|If your business has limited marketing resources in
terms of people, expertise and materials then you
might want to consider outsourcing your marketing
functions to an independent marketing professional or
a marketing and promotions agency. Small
businesses, downsized companies, and expanding
corporations all have different reasons to outsource.
Marketing can be an expensive activity and maintaining
in house resources can really make this a difficult
program to commit to. But marketing is a very
important part of business success so allowing
someone else to focus on marketing gives companies
a chance to focus on their core business and areas
that will enable them to surpass their competition.
Outsourcing marketing resources comes with a price,
but this cost is usually lower than it would be if the
companies had employed and undertaken in house
activities. By eliminating the need to hire full-time
employees, using an agency for marketing resources
saves companies thousands of dollars on wages,
taxes and benefits. You are also gaining expertise in an
agency that you might not find in individual employees.
In addition to their own staff, agencies also have other
resources to help you, such as their own outside
contacts, suppliers, designers, copywriters and
printers--saving you time as well as money.
When you hire an outside agency, you are hiring
experts in marketing. These are professional people
who can focus on all your marketing needs and not be
hindered by your internal politics, relations between
employees, or lack of knowledge among staff in
relation to marketing strategies and how they integrate
with business strategies. Marketing professionals
whether independent or through a marketing agency -
will often have more experience in the particular
aspects of marketing than you staff, and undoubtedly
more than you could pay for in an employee. Also,
since they work with other clients, they have seen what
works and what doesn't in other company campaigns.
This knowledge translates to more efficient and
effective marketing for you as you have the benefit of
As with outsourcing any business function, allowing an
outside agency to do your marketing or advertising
brings a certain kind of objectivity with it. Sometimes
you just need a fresh perspective to overcome
difficulties and to achieve specific goals. An objective
marketing professional will help you see things you
might otherwise miss and will be more open to offering
a range of fresh ideas as opposed to a bunch of tired
ideas that you might have been toying with for years
but have yet to implement.
