Should you outsource your content creation?

As consumers demand digital video content to be present on their favourite brands socials, it has become increasingly difficult for internal teams to consistently produce unique, quality content that cuts-through and is on-brand. 

If you’re debating whether you should outsource your content creation over stressing internal resources, here are some pros and cons of each situation to make the best decision for your investment.

  1. Save Money On Employee Wages

Building an internal digital production team in Melbourne can be expensive. Talented animators, editors, videographers, content strategists and designers cost a pretty penny and hiring an all rounder will start to compromise content quality.

The bottom line is, outsourcing saves you money. When you hire a reputable video content agency to create the content for your marketing plan, you allow yourself to be more flexible with your budget and your content marketing calendar.

In addition, hiring employees to cater for busy cycles in the year results in employees sitting idle (while still costing you money) during off peak periods. When things get busy, hiring an external video content agency to handle your content saves on the cost and hassle of part-time or seasonal employees.

Even better, saving money by outsourcing unique content creation means more money to put towards other important projects and business objectives.

  1. Save Time With Fast Turnarounds.

Outsourcing saves you time. The best content agencies deliver high-quality work in a relatively short amount of time. Consider how much time outsourcing some of your work would save you and how much more you could get done in a day.

  1. Take Advantage Of Others’ Expertise.

Outsourcing, as opposed to hiring an internal all-rounder allows you to access a team of experts in each individual area of video content production. From content strategists, producers, motion graphic designers, animators, editors, copywriters, drone pilots etc they are a collective group of experts that have the knowledge and abilities that you and your team do not necessarily have.

  1. Maintain Your Enthusiasm
