Marketing is an industry based on competition – for quality digital marketing talent, creative assets, and client satisfaction, among other things. It’s also a multi-faceted industry – the kind where you’ve constantly got plates to keep spinning or, on a bad day, fires to put out. So, with a lengthy to-do list and the competitive pressure on, how do you ensure your creative agency rises above the rest?

You stop trying to do it all alone.

Business process outsourcing isn’t the only reason to seek out an offshoring partner. Outsourcing creative services is essential for any agency in the modern day. By teaming up with a global production studio, you can combat some of the biggest challenges facing your creative agency today. Here are four key ways outsourcing benefits marketing agencies.

1. Eliminate long turnaround times and meet project deadlines

Nothing kills a campaign more than a bottleneck in the creative process. When creative services fall behind, so does everything else – from client approval to campaign deployment to performance analysis. Creative assets and marketing campaigns, even made by the most dedicated team with a clear brand strategy, won’t hit KPIs if they aren’t being created and rolled out on time.

When you outsource your overflow creative work, even while retaining creative control and keeping core creative processes in-house, you can ensure projects stay on track and important deadlines are met. You can publish content more frequently and more consistently, while also leaving adequate time to analyze and update your strategic approach.

2. Get creative outsourcing that delivers high-quality work at a lower cost

The expression “it costs money to make money” was pretty much made for marketing. But it doesn’t always have to be the case. Creative post-production outsourcing is a brilliant way of adding additional resources to your in-house team without blowing the entire project budget. 

Your in-house team can work with a post production team consisting of the most talented people around the world, and you can reap the benefits of lower costs, increased productivity and better quality deliverables at a fraction of the cost it would take to hire additional team members for your in-house creative team to fill skill gaps.

3. Create flexibility and support for your in-house creative team

You’ve already taken the time to stack your entire team with incredible talent. So, why would you waste their time and in-depth knowledge on the small stuff? Choosing to outsource creative services can give your in-house team some breathing room.

Creative services outsourcing, such as through Smartshoring, allows your in-house creative team to focus on the bigger picture creative tasks that set your agency apart, like inventive art direction, imaginative social media management, or meeting with potential customers.

It’s also a great way to boost employee retention. With the added resources that come from outsourcing creative work, creative professionals can avoid burnout, all while feeling like their skills are being put to the best use within the creative departments of the company.

4. Move forward instead of looking back

The best in-house teams are proactive; they’re always looking forward to the next big thing. But, if you’re stuck constantly putting out fires and struggling to stay ahead on day-to-day operations, your reactive approach is holding your company back from success.

Instead, what if your in-house team could catch up on all those projects no one ever seems to get around to? Updating that landing page, writing your own content, or transferring and updating your old files. Let your production partners pick up the slack by outsourcing creative tasks, so you can focus on what lies ahead.
