Outsourcing is a great way to get tasks done when times are tight. Do you have any idea just how much you could save outsourcing the work you are already doing? It’s probably a lot more than you think! When you add up all the hours for tasks such as email marketing, social networking, managing your call centers and conducting company research and admin, it can be a overwhelming amount of work that you can get for half the price.
When you weigh the costs of outsourcing against the high hourly wage you pay for employees here in the U.S., it can be literally thousands a month. And if you think that only American workers are savvy enough to handle Internet marketing and call centers, think again. Today’s outsourcing reps have access to specialized training that prepares them for any kind of marketing and admin tasks. In a recent survey of how businesses are changing the way they do things to close the sale in this tough economy, they are overwhelmingly choosing to use an old school technique…the phone.
Just when you thought that no one uses the phone anymore to direct market, today’s businesses have discovered that personal follow-ups by phone to interested prospects can add a human touch to closing the sale. In a tough economy a business needs to show they care and will be there for their customers. This is one avenue that outsourcing can do well. For half the price of American labor. An outsourcing firm worth it’s weight will have the call center technology for quick, automatic dialing that could not only save your company thousands per month, but help close sales and grow your business.
If you could sit right down and go over in your mind just how many tasks could be outsourced, it can be staggering. These are tasks you are paying for right now. And are your employees properly trained in the new horizons of the Internet? Or are you going to pay extra for that specialized training? It’s time to reconsider outsourcing as a valuable marketing and administrative tool.
