Expanding your business through outsourcing

Outsourcing can be a way of focusing on your business’s core attributes while employing the best possible level of expertise that you can afford to implement your approach. There are many good reasons for outsourcing, ranging from the purely financial to the tactical and strategic. Many companies outsource any activity that is peripheral to what they actually do – that is, their essential function as a business. In the marketing sector, this might mean farming out technical tasks such as data management, website design or search engine optimisation, while focusing your company’s energies on the overall vision for the campaign, as well as the key attributes that will help sell the product. Companies such as Atlantic Umbrella (atlantic-umbrella.com) provide PAYE services for freelancers, contractors and temporary staff with a wide range of skill sets and valuable experience.

Most B2B companies, for instance, don’t have a full complement of specialist staff capable of effective marketing, while many marketing organisations lack high-end technical expertise, and even may not possess the tech or the software in the first place. It can be more viable to outsource these tasks than to have staff trained and experienced in these areas on the payroll full-time. Hiring in experts as and when needed also means that your staff can work with the specialists to develop their own skills and to familiarise themselves with the latest technology.

 

Bringing in specialists from outside means you can be sure they’ll be up to date with changing demands, priorities and technology. After all, that is their job, and it’s where their experience and reputation resides.
