Hiring a marketing agency for your organization can be one of the best investments you can make. However, if you’ve never outsourced that part of your business before, or if you’re not sure how that could be valuable, we share some reasons why waving the white flag when you need support is always a great choice.
You may tell yourself that you’ll get around to publishing that social media post, writing a new blog post, or sending a newsletter, but next thing you know, three months have gone by and you haven’t done anything. That’s completely expected when you run a business as successful as yours! With a million things to do for your company and not enough time in the day to do them, marketing understandably falls to the bottom of your to-do list.
On the other hand, if you are dedicating time to executing your own marketing strategy, you’re using up a lot of your time that could be put towards revenue-generating activities. Delegating this responsibility to someone else gives you back an unbelievable amount of time because it’s one less thing for you to do. View it this way: if you spend five hours per week on your marketing, that’s 260 hours per year that you’d get back into your schedule to focus on other things in your business. Imagine how much you could accomplish with an extra 260 hours! (A lot.)
Instead, you can use this extra time to focus on sales and business development — two things that will propel your company forward and aid in bringing in additional revenue. What could be better than that?
Sure, anybody can post on social media, write a blog post, and send a newsletter — but does that mean that they’re an expert and there’s a strategy behind what they’re doing? Most likely not. Dedicating your time or your staff’s time to writing marketing content without even being sure if it’s providing results or following the best strategy is preventing you from being able to use that time more wisely and achieving the results that you want.
Rather than throwing spaghetti at the wall and hoping that it sticks by something you know you’re not an expert at, bring in someone who knows what they’re doing and can make a drastic change in your marketing strategy.
The advantages of working with a marketing agency include:
Your clients or customers hire you because they know they’re not an expert at what you do, so why don’t you follow the same pursuit?
Having a consistent and engaged online presence for your business matters, as the community you curate online and the results that come from that positively impact other parts of your business.

And so much more. If you’re looking for bigger and better results all around in your business and sales strategy, focusing on your marketing is one way to do that.
