Outsourcing is not a new concept in the business world. While reports suggest that the outsourcing industry had taken a hit because of the COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions, research firm, IBISWorld, still predicts that it will grow annually at 0.9% over the next five years.
They suggest that the industry could go back to pre-pandemic levels around this time and say that, despite the downturn, confidence in the outsourcing industry remains positive. And why wouldn’t it, given the many benefits businesses can take advantage of.
Outsourcing Marketing Tasks
One of the biggest benefits you can get from outsourcing is that it saves you time and money, allowing you to focus on your core capabilities. Marketing tasks are especially popular outsourced services, particularly for this reason.
What marketing tasks can you outsource?
Managing your business processes while handling your digital marketing could make you lose focus. This is where outsourcing comes in.
Opting to outsource your digital marketing efforts is a worthwhile investment because you are paying for the services of an individual or a company that have honed their skills in this craft. They can dedicate their time and effort into creating campaigns that would resonate with your target audience.
Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)
Today, a successful marketing campaign runs with the help of search engine optimisation (SEO). After all, these digital campaigns typically start with your website. Optimising it for search engine rankings is the first step. However, it can be a tedious task.
Site audits and keyword research alone could take you hours, much less having to come up with a strategy to rise in search engine results pages; time you could’ve used focusing on other matters to grow your revenue.
Enter outsourced SEO services. It is a highly specialised skill that helps your website get found and increases your online visibility. Better online visibility translates to higher traffic and more chances for conversion.
They say “content is king,” and while there are different types of content, the written kind still reigns supreme. But keeping a full-time content writer on-staff might not always be financially viable so the next best thing is to outsource it.
Content writers are the experts in understanding readers and influencing them with relevant information. Coming up with great content, they also know what the audience wants and know the appropriate terms to use to reach out to your target audience.
Social Media/Content Moderation
Engagement is a good sign of effective digital marketing. Of course, not all engagement will be positive. You will occasionally run into some negative comments and reactions. Either way, marketers understand that you need to keep this conversation going. This is particularly true when it comes to social media.
According to HubSpot, most social media users expect a response within 60 minutes of posting their message. As a business owner, you won’t always have the time to respond to all these messages. Outsourcing experienced content moderators and social media specialists is the best solution.
They could help moderate your social media presence and would know how to deliver professional and appropriate responses to all types of comments.
