We’re marketers, not octopi. We’ve only got two arms to work with, and at any given moment, one of them is wrangling empty coffee cups out of the Zoom camera view. It’s a tough job, but someones gotta do it.
When cutting through the thick of your inbox feels like exploring the rainforest, or when your plate is fuller than at Thanksgiving Dinner, it’s time to outsource parts of your marketing.
This can be scary—you are handing off your reputation, your project scope, your very marketing identity out to the world and hoping it comes back intact. But rest assured, it’s what the pros do. In fact, nearly 2/3rds of B2B companies outsource a portion of their marketing!
As a consulting rule of thumb, you should spend half of your day working for your clients and the other half growing your business. If the former begins to overtake the latter, it is time to consider outsourcing.
Benefits of Outsourcing:
– More reliable timelines for clients
– Reduced costs compared to hiring in-house
– Increased efficiency
– Offering new services you are not equipped to deliver alone
– Flexible staffing for your agency.
– Maybe even a vacation? Is it really possible?
Like any relationship, consistent check-ins are a fantastic way to ensure both parties clearly understand the partnership scope and collaborate effectively for desired results. Below are my suggestions for trusted outsourced marketing companies that I turn to when I need to deliver quickly, reliably, and with the content my clients need.
