“Surely updating my Twitter and Facebook pages is a quick and simple job. Why would I want to pay someone else to do it for me?”

This is a question we sometimes get asked. The reasons are many and varied.

Here’s our top 7 list of reasons why you shouldn’t attempt to keep your business’ social media profile updated yourself.

Time

You’ve got a business to run, staff to manage and customers to look after. It doesn’t really leave a lot of spare time to dedicate to keeping your Tweets and status updates meaningful does it?

Knowledge

So you know everything you need to know to make your business a success. You’re great at selling and customer service and you might even occasionally post the odd comment on your own Facebook profile. But you may not know where to even start with a business page. We can teach you how to do things, set everything up for you, get your profile raised and then hand it back to you when (and if!) you want to take it back on in the future.

Planning

We can create an online strategy for you, complete with long term objectives, and keep you focused on achieving those goals.

Cost-effective

OK, so we get that at first you will be thinking ‘But if I do it myself, there is no cost. Why would I want to lay out cash for someone else to do it for me?’ However, if you’re spending hours trying to keep on top of all your Tweets, posts and messages, what else could you have achieved in that time? How many sales could you have closed? Or orders dispatched? Time is money for you.

Speed

If you’re new to social media, or you don’t really understand how it can bring benefits to your business, outsourcing can get your online profile and messages to customers out there much more quickly than you could alone.

Experience

You’ll benefit from our experience with other clients. We’ve been doing this now for around three or four years. Why not hand the job over to someone who can do it quickly and cost-effectively for you.

Impact

We can create a mix of social media tools and channels that fit with your existing marketing activities to give your brand greater exposure and therefore create greater impact.
