1. Marketing

Being a marketing manager is a full-time job for a reason, and if you don’t do it well, you’ll be stuck with strategies that don’t work. It’s hard to keep up with the trends of marketing and know what you should do online to make things work.

Marketing takes time, and it takes constant updates. As a small business owner, chances are you can’t afford the average salary of 129,380 a year for a marketing manager.

Instead, outsource your marketing efforts to a marketing group that can do the same at half the cost. Because they have multiple clients, they won’t need to charge you nearly as much.

Plus, they never waste your money. If they’re not spending time on your business, they aren’t charging you for their time. Someone in office would get paid even if they slacked off.

Even large businesses like to use marketing agencies over an in-house marketing group. At the very least, many use a marketing agency to supplement their in-house strategy. 

2. Accounting

Accounting is hard, annoying, and absolutely vital for your business to survive. But doing it on your own can be harder than you might think.

And doing it during tax season can be quite a stressful situation. Sometimes you might find yourself unable to do the taxes that an accountant can.

Make sure to do some research before finding an accountant to outsource to. Something like this helpful site will give you the information you need to hire the right accountant. 

3. IT Support

How often do you really need an IT person? Oftentimes, you need them for the initial set up, during any major website changes, and when your computer crashes.

Otherwise, you could mostly get along just fine without an IT tech. If you keep an IT person in house all the time, chances are you’re throwing a lot of money out the window.

Sure, in some large businesses, an IT person can be helpful around the clock. But for small businesses, it might be best to keep it to what you know you need. 

Oh, and keep in mind that the average IT project manager makes over $80,000 a year. Outsourcing this part of the business could save you big time.
