Outsourcing. We’re all familiar with the stigma attached to it. I bet the first thought that popped into your head just now was an offshore call centre, crackly lines and intrusive phone calls when you’re cooking tea.
But how many companies can really afford a skilled and diverse team of dedicated, in-house marketers to support their business development objectives and execute seamless campaigns? Not that many. Outsourcing offers more than just the financial reward; you can direct and maximise on how that external workforce works, access a range of top level skill sets and increase efficiency once internal resources are focused only on their main tasks.
Here are just a few examples of how our own clients are currently benefiting from outsourcing:
Affordable Executive Support
Cost reduction is often a key motivator for outsourcing, and downsizing can potentially compromise strategic vision. However, initiatives still need to be implemented in line with business development objectives to support business growth. Access to the whole team means that you can still utilise the executive thinking to help plan, oversea and offer leadership and guidance, without the overheads associated with employing someone full time at that seniority level.
Recruitment is a big risk in itself, financially and from a HR perspective. In an ideal world, businesses want to expand and downsize in-line with business growth and decline. Accessing a scale-able resource allows you this flexibility whilst ensuring that the appropriate person with the appropriate skill set is working on your project.
Team Work & Flexibility
Outsourcing enables businesses to access a scale-able resource as and when projects require various skill sets. One thing we pride ourselves on is the diversity of our marketing interests and specialisms , which means that we offer our client’s campaigns a well rounded approach, drawing upon each of our ideas and skill sets so that projects receive the tenacity and dedication of each member of the team before anything goes ahead.
Outsourcing = Results
Often, outsourced time can be as granulated as by the hour. This means that there is no time to be complacent or distracted by other tasks, a common drawback of in-house staff. Time is invested solely on project work. Working in this way means that planning, preparation and task allocation is crucial. It also means that clients can see where time is spent and on what.
We are a close knit team that work collaboratively so that our energies are pooled and then invested in our client’s marketing activity. We foster an ethos of teamwork and tenacity to ensure the best results for campaigns.
