Businesses should be spending between 1 % – 10 % of sales revenue on marketing, at minimum, in order to execute an effective marketing plan. – HBR
There is no denying that entrepreneurs are excited and passionate about what they do. However, passion and experience are two very different things. Many early stage startups and entrepreneurs lack professional sales and marketing experience, a significant drawback to scaling a business quickly. In the early days when you’re trying to gain users and customers, and refining your product or service, having an experienced team can be the difference between success and failure.
As your outsourced Marketing Department, we can adapt our engagement to your unique business cycle. We frequently scale engagement time between sales and marketing resources depending on the priorities of our client, their sales cycle and the marketing strategy we have adopted.
Entrepreneurs are busy people. The “founder” job description includes such responsibilities as product development, hiring staff, and raising money to fund expansion, in addition to many other vital tasks. Because of this, generating revenue is often overlooked. An outsourced marketing and sales provider will have the focus required to keep revenue at the top of their priorities.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of outsourcing sales and marketing staff is that it will cost your business much less than an in-house resource. When you embrace the power of outsourcing sales and marketing, your organization can typically get access to experienced resources for less.
Outsourcing your marketing department will help your startup move faster in the short term and become more agile and adaptable in the long-term. While you're busy running your business, your outsourced team is working hard creating new pipeline, reviewing your analytics, checking your KPIs and interacting with your followers on all social media channels.
Many entrepreneurs have never managed or hired sales and marketing reps. It’s a very different hire than a tech team hire. Once the new employees have been hired, it’s important to have an on-boarding process. You cannot hire just one person. You need a team of experts, someone experienced to form a strategy and generalists to execute.
