This is a question we get asked a lot and, despite what you might think, the answer isn't cut & dry. So here we explore a few reasons you may or may not need to outsource your social media.
We spend a lot of time with business owners & entrepreneurs trying to drill home how important a strong social media presence is for your business. But sometimes it simply cannot be done in-house due to budget or time restraints. That is when outsourcing could be a solution.
However, on the other side of the coin having a dedicated member of staff (or team) employed solely to manage your companies social media comes with it's own benefits! So how are you supposed to know what the best course of action is? Below we answer some questions we've come across that may help you realise whether you need to outsource or not.
Q. I do not have the budget to hire another member of staff, and our team is too busy to be doing social media too. What should I do?
A. Outsource. Without a doubt. If you fundamentally cannot run a social media campaign in-house then you are left with no choice but to hire a social media team/marketing company to take control of things for you. Doing nothing is not an option. Social media can increase client awareness, sales & customer care so it is vital for every business - regardless or size - to have a solid social media presence.
Q. We have someone on our team who does our social media, but the results aren't amazing. What should I do?
A. This is a tricky one because there's several possible options to explore. First off, does the team member actually know what your goals are on social media and do they know how to execute them? i.e do they have experience running social media campaigns previously? If not, the best option would be to bring in a consultant (like us!) to work with your team member for a few hours a week and train them on how to get the most out of social media. Although for this to work you have to be honest with yourself and ask has your team member got enough time to do what needs to be done or are they required to do other work too (admin etc.) that could take them away from your social media? If this is the case then it may be a good idea to explore outsourcing as a solution where your team member gets more time to focus on their core job role & the business has gained a marketing expert running their social media.
Q. I can't afford to outsource social media. It's really expensive isn't it?
A. No. Outsourcing social media can be extremely cost effective and is often considerably cheaper than hiring someone to fulfil this role full time. Fo example, our cheapest social media outsourcing package starts at only £150 PCM. That's only £1800 per year! Or £35 a week! That is a very good price to have someone managing your social media for you, dealing with comments etc and increasing awareness of your company online. There's a reason some of the biggest (and richest!) companies in the world still hire companies to run their social media for them; because it's cost-effective and often yields far better results.
The above are three of the most common questions we get asked when a business owner is struggling to fulfil their social media responsibilities. If you'd like to find out how hiring our team could revolutionise your business online contact us today.
As business owners it can often feel like you spend your whole day fighting the clock ⏰ Time is precious and when you have a business to run it can often feel that there just aren't enough hours in the day to complete the essential duties of a successful company, and that's before we even start to talk about advertising & marketing 👎
Website content, blog pages, tweets, instagram stories, LinkedIn & facebook status updates 😯 We all now how important they are in promoting your business but they often fall way down on the list of priorities. This is why we often come across business owners who go home after a hard days work and then - when they should be enjoying the precious moments with their families, friends or even just relaxing themselves - they try and cram in the social media duties then! Work on top of work! 💤
That is why outsourcing these duties to professionals (like us 🙋♂️) has been on the boom for the last few years! For only a small charge per month we can take these duties off your hands - updating your social media profiles with on-brand content, and then interacting with clients comments on your behalf! 🙌 In doing so you not only gain an experienced marketing manager to promote your business in a professional and effective manner, but you also gain those precious moments back! 🤩 So, put your feet up, enjoy a family meal or just catch up on your favourite Netflix series - either way, you'll be left feeling refreshed and ready to go the next morning!
