A Marketing Mythbuster – find out why this myth is FALSE!

We often hear that people think getting help with marketing will cost too much.

Of course considering your budget is important for every business, and especially for startups and entrepreneurs who don’t have access to huge capital like big corporations. Yet there are several documented benefits to why you should be getting assistance with your marketing.

Get help with marketing to free up your time

One of the basic tasks that hiring a marketer can do is free up some of your time – for you to focus on things in your business that only you can do. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways that you can gain more time in your day.

One of the best things I did personally was outsource some of my recurring duties that could be handled by others. One big spot was bookkeeping, and the other was some of the repeating marketing tasks – including things such as positing on social media and reporting. How I determined whether this would be worth it was by considering ROI. I calculated the amount of time having someone else handle these duties would free up in my schedule on a monthly basis – and then I calculated how much that time was worth to me if it was spent on doing other revenue-generating activities.

Another benefit when getting help with your marketing activities is that having someone who specializes in marketing, or more strategically in a very specific aspect of marketing, can actually help you generate more traffic, generate more sales, and increase revenue in your business.

This means that not only do you have the ability to make more money through having more time for your own revenue generating activities, but you can also make more money by having marketing that is more effective.
