There’s a well known saying in business that goes like this:
‘Spend money to make money’
The principle—while relevant to a number of different business-building activities—can be applied to the concept of outsourcing, an exercise that has the power to drive ROI many times over, and can improve business efficiency and output long term. For firms like yours, outsourcing additional work to external agencies is a great way to cut the time, money and resources you spend on doing the work yourself.
Outsourcing specific departments such as IT, HR, and sales might not be something you’ve considered in the past, but it shouldn’t be disregarded. Freed up of the nitty gritty, you’re able to pump more into nurturing client relationships and proactively growing your firm.
For firms in traditional industries, one outsourced activity that’s producing consistent ROI is marketing.
“62% of companies outsource all or part of their digital marketing tactics, primarily the most difficult types to execute. Outsourcing supplements internal skills to improve performance.” (Source: Ascend2)
Even if your business has the time to market its services, your employees might not have the right expertise to actually do so.
Marketing without the right tools and experience brings with it a certain amount of risk. Advertising costs can quickly become expensive and unwieldy, your time can get eaten up by implementing and monitoring complex campaigns (when it’s better spent actually running your business), and the extra resources you have to hand may soon become overwhelmed by the extra workload.
To avoid running the gauntlet (and losing) against your competitors, or wasting valuable time that’s better spent keeping your clients happy, consider outsourcing the extra work that’s on your plate.
For example, an efficient marketing strategy run by a team of experts who know what they’re doing is actually proven to add value to a business’ bottom line. Marketing works to:
- position your business in front of your target audience on different channels
- attract ‘right-fit’ clients to your offering
- build trust and establish relationships with those bought into your brand
…which ultimately helps convert a greater percentage of eager enquiries into paying clients.
That’s why the old adage still rings true today: in order to see results, you need to invest first.
