Outsourcing is a practice that has been strategically applied for decades across many industry sectors. The practice is most common in manufacturing, accounting, or specialized consulting where a business subcontracts with a third party to perform an organizational function once performed in-house. When the function can be easily defined, measured, and qualified, the practice of outsourcing has a proven record of adding value to businesses that lack in-house expertise or the capability to respond to growing demands for a company’s goods and services, or when an organization is unable to economically perform a particular function in-house.
More and more small- to mid-size companies are discovering the benefits of contracting with outside marketing services firms to remain relevant in an ever more competitive marketplace. The rapid changes in digital communications can complicate managing social media and digital advertising and marketing campaigns. Large firms, who often employ substantial in-house marketing teams, are also finding outsourcing some niche marketing functions to be beneficial and complementary to in-house teams.
Spinning-off responsibility for managing content creation, website development and maintenance, performance analysis and targeting are areas that meet the test of definable, quality and measurable. Lending the responsibility for a brand’s social media and digital marketing strategy to an experienced and qualified marketing company will result in more engaging content that reaches a targeted audience and drives increased conversions while lowering costs, saving time, improving the scalability of overall marketing efforts and closing an internal marketing talent gap.
Finding a qualified candidate to partner with starts with defining the goals, objectives, and expectations of the process. Identify the deliverables, tactics, timeline, and costs of the mission. Is the candidate qualified to perform the latest application of digital technologies and experienced in developing and executing a successful multichannel marketing strategy? Focus on selecting providers that demonstrate excellent communication skills that can clearly articulate and understand complex information and specific performance criteria. Can the agency produce a portfolio of successful experience across industry sectors with both large and small companies? Do they specialize in social media management, content generation, PPC management, and on-page SEO optimization?
Digital technology has drastically changed the way businesses operate today, and the impact of digital marketing remains dynamic. Powerful storytelling skill sets and impactful strategies that drive discovery and conversion with a qualified audience will build a brand’s reputation and value. Candidates for serious consideration should have a history of specializing in social media management, content generation, PPC management, and on-page SEO optimization. Gain valuable insights from the agency’s current and former clients through published reviews and personal testimonials. Finding the right partner to manage a company’s marketing efforts will free up time and internal talent to focus on the organization’s core competencies while cutting wasted marketing spend on inefficient campaigns.
