Creativity is a key component in marketing. In the very competitive field of online advertising, it all boils down to who manages to provide the most eye-catching content that not only captures the audience’s attention, but also demands to be shared. With that in mind, not only is it important to have a team of creative handling your digital marketing needs, it would also be beneficial if these creative are outsourced. Why? Here are a few reasons why:
You’re too close!
As is the case with most owners of small and medium sized businesses, there is a difficulty to separate one’s self from the temptation of trying to manage every aspect of the company. This is understandable, as the company is your creation, but when you’re too close to your subject, it’s hard to see how the general public perceives your brand’s image. Entrepreneurs tend to have blinders that keep them from seeing anything else aside from their original concept and that can hinder growth. This can be avoided simply by hiring creative that are invested in specifically the success of their marketing endeavors and nothing else.
Outsourced teams can mirror public sentiment.
As mentioned, it’s sometimes difficult to see how the general public perceives your brand. The same difficulty exists with an in-house marketing team, as there may be certain biases that come with presenting the company in a specific way. An outsourced group of creative actually mirrors how the public sees your brand, as they have no prior connection to your company until it was presented to them as part of their new campaign to design. The outsourced team’s sentiment can most likely be similar to the general public’s perception, and as professionals with that sort of insight on the audience, they know the most effective way to shift that perception to your desired messaging.
A fresh approach and a more diverse skillset
Outsourced creative teams offer ideas that may not even occur to your local marketing team. This is due to the difference in experience and exposure. This is not to downplay your local marketing team; it’s simply to highlight the fact that most creative work stems from an artist’s experiences in their own lives. Creative people from different ages, backgrounds, even parts of the world can provide your company the type of branding that you never realized it needed.
Basically, by outsourcing your creative team, you are putting your product in front of people with a fresh set of eyes, a brain filled with fresh ideas, and a fresh set of skills to properly present your brand. Consider the possibilities. You get:
- A creative team with a diverse skillset
- Fresh ideas and creative takes that can enhance, direct, or even change your branding
- A team focused on the growth and strengthening of your company’s brand and nothing else
- And finally, on a more practical note, more free time to devote to other aspects of the business
