    Outsourcing Your Marketing

    in Marketing

    Some companies prefer to handle their marketing internally, which is fine – up to a point. You need to establish some very clear metrics and determine when it’s time to outsource the marketing, before the competition leaves you behind.


    The most important aspect is the return on investment you get from your marketing team. Remember than an external contractor will always use ROI as the most important unit of measure for each and every campaign held online. Therefore, if you’re not satisfied with the current ROI, and if you think there’s room for improvement, it’s time to think about outsourcing your marketing. Contact a few companies and openly discuss your concerns with them – it could be that you want too much, and your existing team is doing everything by the book and obtaining the maximum possible from the current situation on the market. A reliable marketer will tell you this immediately, and you’ll be able to understand what other options you have for growing your business.


    Another sign that it’s time to outsource your marketing comes from noticing that you’re always one step behind the competition in all your campaigns and strategies. This is normal – marketing teams, no matter how passionate and well-source they are, simply cannot keep up with all the developments in the online environment. A professional marketer has access to more information, and has more tested strategies available – and therefore will make sure that you’re not left behind, quite to the contrary, that you’re ahead of everybody else in business. It’s up to you to decide when to start outsourcing your marketing, but most specialists would agree that the sooner, the better.

    How to Manage Through Influence

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 3, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).


    Last week we talked about how HR leaders achieve talent brand dominance, and this week we’re going to talk about how to manage through influence.


    Organizations are becoming more matrixed and less hierarchical every day. Command-and-control corporate structures are relics of the past. 


    Like most managers today, dealing with flatter organizational structures, outsourcing, and virtual teams are all quite challenging. Because of this, more and more managers need to get things done through their peers inside and outside their organizations. 


    However, because the world of work has gotten so complex, the very act of change has grown increasingly difficult. Today’s flatter organizations actually give employees and managers much more flexibility in deciding how work gets done, but they also require greater levels of collaboration than ever before. This means that success is often dependent on persuading other individuals and teams to support your projects, even if they’re not direct reports. 


    This skill is called “managing through influence” and is as critical to success in today’s world as a sterling resume or a tireless work ethic. 


    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about how to manage through influence with this week’s guest: Jim Fields, Vice President of Customer Experience Marketing at SAP, a multinational software corporation that makes enterprise software to manage business operations and customer relations.


    Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!
