5 REASONS TO CONSIDER HIRING A CONTRACTOR FOR THAT MARKETING, CREATIVE, OR OPERATIONS POSITION


1. FLEXIBILITY

Creative and marketing roles often comes with special projects like creating infographics and one-off campaigns and events. A contractor allows you to hire someone just for those individual projects.

If the contractor provides value, you can always hire them for future work. When you have an open creative marketing spot, it always makes sense to fill it with the person who will provide your organization with both the best experience and the most value.

2. MEETING DEADLINES WHILE CONSERVING YOUR ENERGY AND SANITY

Digital marketing and creative experts can be a game changer for small and mid-sized companies. While the hourly rates are typically higher than you would pay a permanent hire, you only pay for the time you need.

If you hire additional full-time staff members, you may lose precious time to training and onboarding. You may pay your contractor more, but you receive high-quality work that creates future business.

When you find a qualified expert, you may hire them regularly. They internalize your value and expectations, providing you quality work within a set timeline and budget.

3. EXTRA PAIR OF EYES

The full-time employees in your marketing or creative departments may have been doing a good job in their position for years. They would probably know everything there is to know about your products and services. They intimately understand the value you provide. They may have designed your website, so they know how each aspect functions.

But their very familiarity can at times be a disadvantage. Prospective clients don’t already understand what your brand has to offer. They don’t understand what makes you unique or how to use what you make. When they visit your website, they don’t know where everything is located.

A specialized contractor has training and experience that allows them to evaluate your creative initiatives, marketing and technology through the consumer’s eyes. They may find unique pain points and offer a point of view that is more reflective of your target audience than your current staff can.

4. HAVING ACCESS TO ADDITIONAL KNOWLEDGE DATABASE

Because contractors work with such a wide range of clients, they also develop a broad knowledge base. They have the opportunity to try the most innovative technology and work with experts in a number of industries.

You can choose someone with a wide range of basic skills to fill a variety of roles, or hire a contractor who specializes in the area you need most. If you need help with your SEM campaign or content marketing, for example, some talent have advanced training in those specific areas. If there isn’t someone already on your team with advanced SEM knowledge, hiring a specialized contractor can save you time, money and stress.

5. TAPPING IN TO ADDITIONAL NETWORK & ROLODEX

Creative, marketing, and operations professionals come with the network and connections of their own. If you are looking to sign a new vendor, additional PR connection, a lead at a prospective company...etc they can connect you with those additional individuals.
