Our Relationship With You
How does an outsourced marketing department work?
SMS Marketing Managers start by assessing your business through our workshops auditing various areas of your business and marketing.
- Budgeting: The average business budgets 4%-12% of annual gross revenue to marketing on and offline). We’ll work with you to help create a 12-month marketing budget and adjust every quarter as your business changes.
- Content Audit: We’ll review any current marketing assets you have from photos and videos, website pages, printed collateral, and more to determine what areas we can use for your marketing and what areas we need to create and improve on.
- Personas & Target Audiences: Before we start blowing money on ads and publishing content, we’ll need to figure out who your customer is.
- Sales, Marketing & Business Goals: Without setting clear sales and marketing goals we’re essentially “winging it” making it difficult for us to prove any results.
- Strategy & Tactics: This is will be our 30,000-foot view of your marketing. Things like: What are we doing? When are we doing it? How is it being done? What does it look like? This is also subject to change as your business and our relationship matures.

The fixed payments of outsourcing may appear to be more expensive at the onset, but the money saved is almost always higher. Fixed costs in people, technology, and facilities often account for the largest portion of a marketing budget. The assembly of a modest in-house department is an investment that easily stretches into six figures.
It also creates an area of year-round overhead – In today’s economic climate, companies can’t afford to spend money without measurable results. In contrast to an internal hire, an external marketing firm that doesn’t deliver results will quickly be off any business’s payroll.
Not only does this mean that successful agencies have been vetted by your peers, but it also means that your outsourced team knows that they will be held accountable for the work performed. Without the cushion of a long-term contract, a digital marketing agency must be results-driven in order to survive.
Including retirement benefits, health insurance, vacation pay, etc. – that becomes an immovable, fixed expense. Finding competent executives with the right expertise also takes time and money. Outsourcing will save you both.
Your Dream. Our Mission
When considering an
outsourced marketing department,
the following 6 areas are key to consider.
Effective marketing requires a wide range of expertise. The ideal marketing team includes; strategists, analysts, product specialists, brand managers, communications professionals, event organizers, SEO specialists, search specialists, marketing automation specialists, copywriters, creatives – the list goes on and on. Hiring a large enough staff to cover all bases isn’t often feasible, and it’s expensive even when it is. Given the rapid technology changes of our era, even the best in-house team can fall behind as new areas of expertise become necessary. Finding and maintaining an inhouse marketing staff with the right expertise at the right cost point is very difficult.
Markets are constantly changing in today’s fast-paced world, and you don’t want to be the business left behind. Companies need the strategic and organizational mobility to shift gears at a moment’s notice, and outsourcing allows you to have an instantly prepared and specialized team available whenever a shift requires adapting your marketing strategy. It also enables your company to explore new approaches without a long-term commitment.

Speed to Market
Time is, quite literally, money. In today’s hyper-competitive market climate, businesses can’t afford to waste time when an opportunity arises. With a larger team and library of resources, outsourced marketing firms can produce deliverables faster than an in-house team. Firms often have enough expertise internally to produce polished deliverables and will have established partnerships to do so if not. The gap in speed to market between in-house and outsourced teams is especially large when pursuing a new model of marketing that your in-house team may be unfamiliar with.
Oftentimes, an outsourced marketing firm has a stake in diverse clients and industries, which gives you an advantage. Cross-industry experience allows firms to develop a comprehensive strategy based on observation of a wide sample of businesses and industries. The experience gained from supporting many businesses enables marketing firms to better evaluate how to support yours.
The Outsourced Marketing Agency Advantage
Successful marketing must shape the company’s image in the eyes of consumers. While a company’s conception of its brand is important, it is prospective consumers’ opinions that ultimately determine the success of a business. Having a fresh perspective enables outsourced teams to see your company as prospective clients see it and engineer a strategic digital marketing plan centered on the consumer. Because it is much harder for in-house employees to divorce themselves from company politics and groupthink, the objective strategic vision of outside agencies will produce results more reliably. Your outsourced team will say it like it is, and that jolt is often just what a business needs to move to the next level.
