Outsourced Digital Marketing Cork
Are you finding it difficult to get marketing staff, or even more difficult to hire Digital Marketing Staff? It can be a long process to find the candidate that is the right fit for your company. Found the ideal candidate, gone through the recruitment process and had them back out at the last minute? If so, you are not alone.
Research has found that 91% of Irish-based employers have experienced recruitment challenges in the past 12 months (Hays Ireland Salary & Recruiting Trends Guide 2022). The majority of employers (68%) cited competition from other employers as the primary cause of their inability to meet their recruitment and retention goals.
Companies in Cork and all over Ireland are moving more to outsourcing their Digital Marketing to a specialist agency. At ePresence Digital Marketing, we are helping companies do just that.
Marketing Manager/Business Owner?
How Outsourcing Makes Your Job Easier
Sharing the load. Anyone who has worked with a good digital marketing agency knows they are results-driven. The agency is mindful that if they don’t deliver results, they won’t have a working relationship for very long. This is a clear understanding with an urgency to make things happen; a benefit and relief for the time-limited marketing manager/business owner.
An agency will help you reach your goals much quicker. You are supported along the way with proven marketing strategies, expertise and experience to help you soar.
Save Time & Money
Hiring an in-house team of digital marketing experts can be very costly and difficult to find quality talent. See reductions in the hiring process, training and payroll.
Allowing you to do what you do best
Outsourcing allows you to focus on your own role, spending more time on your business, ultimately giving you more peace of mind.
An agency partner will always provide an honest and uncensored opinion about your company’s business – good or bad. Employees may be reluctant to do this; you benefit from an outside perspective.
If you need to expand into a different marketing channel or adapt your strategy based on a changing environment, it’s easier with an agency. Agencies give you more flexibility with your strategy, so if one channel isn’t working, you can easily change to something else.
Vetting an Agency Vs Vetting a Hire
When recruiting in-house, it can be difficult to accurately vet the quality of your new hire. It can be hard to validate the accuracy of achievements on their CV. References are the most useful and practical way we have to check this, but employers typically stay on the safe side. Business owners check references and tend to hope for the best.
Agencies are different, however as clients are very transparent and vocal if an agency has underperformed. You can easily find and read client reviews about a particular agency on websites such as Google Reviews or Trustpilot before deciding to work with an agency. It’s more transparent. See ePresence Reviews here.
Why Outsource your Digital Marketing to an Agency?
Outsourcing marketing is cost effective. Hiring marketing staff for a small business or start-up can quickly add up and most companies will not be able to afford this. To get the talent you need without paying large salaries, outsourcing becomes a very effective option.
Outsourcing your digital marketing activities to an expert digital marketing agency will open up your business to new growth opportunities that you can take advantage of. It allows you to get more done in less time without the expense of hiring in-house staff.
A digital marketing agency will have an outside perspective with experience in a range of sectors. They will see problems that maybe you haven’t recognised before, offer you advice and insight in to what has worked in previous senarios, using the talent of a knowledgeable marketing team.
