Is outsourcing necessary?

Written by

The first question is ‘why do you need to outsource?’ followed by ‘when do you need to outsource?’ By answering those questions, you will have the answer if outsourcing is necessary for your business.


Here are a few points to consider about the raised questions:

You should focus on your business.

As a business owner, you will focus on your business strategy and increasing sales. So what happens if you will be needing to do administrative work? Or maintain all your social accounts? Or if you want to redesign your website, will you hire a new bunch of IT people? That will take time. So, instead of focusing on how to increase your profit and work on your business strategy, you are bombarded with operational tasks.

That is when outsourcing comes in, if you outsource, you do not need to spend a lot of time in finding the people who will handle your social media accounts or design your website. You do not need to buy new equipment or make space in your office for newly hired people. Because with outsourcing, you get to have your own team immediately and you get to discuss things with them online. No need to worry about benefits and other expenses about hiring new people.

Not everybody in your company can do everything.

If you have a work that your employees are not skilled in, what do you do? Hire new people again? Think about the expenses. Plus, you are not yet sure if they can actually pull off what you want to happen. It will take time to train them about your business, so if you want to get something done immediately, I guess outsourcing is the best answer for you.

Why? Because if you do outsourcing, you are sure that the people you are getting are good at what they do. You can see reviews, testimonials or portfolios on their websites. And they have been doing that for years. So, no, you do not need to hire people that will eat up your time to get something done. Get a good company that has the best teams to do it for you. Looking for a good company, The Northern Office in the Philippines is here for you.

Less expenses!

Yes, you got that right. Since you will not be hiring anyone to stay in your office, it’s a lot affordable than you thought. No benefits for employees to pay for. No buying of new tables or computers.

If you outsource, you do not just get one person, a good company will give you a team! And The Northern Office in the Philippines will give you the team that you need.  

Now, the question is who do I go to for outsourcing?

One platform already consumes almost all your time, what more if you will try to manage all these networks?

So why manage all when you can outsource social media management to certified experts?

With outsourcing your social media management you can:

  1. Save money and time. Having someone else create, upload and manage your content on social media networks carries out efficiency and productivity. Compared to hiring an employee to do this for you who will require salary, benefits and other costs -- outsourcing and going to a social marketing company is the better choice because they already know what to do and have the right person to do social media marketing for you. This will allow you to utilize your time in more profitable endeavors of your business.
  2. Increase posting speed. If you are going to push through outsourced social media marketing, your publishing and response rate will not be compromised because you have someone doing the job for you. Your company will have the ability to publish at a faster rate which in return will get more likes, shares, comments, and retweets. With that, your brand and your message will be communicated to more people in less time.

Along with that is a process that will fit your business – a process that is monitored, tested and being developed continually to make sure that best efforts are being executed for your effective marketing campaign on the social media networks.

Social media experts do not just have the best social media campaigns, but they also develop a strategy tailored to your business goals.

virtual marketing assistantGood marketing designs strategies to promote the products and services heading to reach your goal of hitting sales targets. With technology, marketing has widened its scope and reach. Digital marketing has allowed companies to open their doors to billions of internet users. The challenge is how to reach out these markets.

Some business owners think that a physical marketing assistant will do the job better than a virtual marketing assistant. But to get the facts straight, having physical assistant will take up more time and energy than a virtual one.

Here’s why you should hire a virtual marketing assistant.


Less hassle, more productivity

If you would hire a physical assistant, you have to spend time on interviewing, hiring and training. Not only that, it will also consume your time to find the right person, because your physical assistant should match your personality so you can have them around all day.

On the contrary, outsourcing a virtual marketing assistant will save you from all those hassle because the company where they belong to will be the one to do all the hiring and training. So when they get to you online, they already know what to do. Thus, saving you from all the hassle and doing all the job that needs to be done in no time.

Less money spent, more sales

Since you are hiring an outsourced marketing assistant, you don’t have to think about the office space and put another person on your payroll. You do not also need to buy new computers or telephones. Hiring an outsourced marketing assistant will not also require you to pay additional taxes, benefits and other expenses of hiring a physical assistant. It saves your money plus it will increase your sales because a virtual marketing assistant has direct knowledge and vast experience in running digital marketing campaigns. He or she can manage and implement a digital marketing campaign even during the company’s off hours.

So what are you waiting for? Recruit an outsourced marketing assistant in your team and keep your business at pace with the competition.
