Would you pursue a law degree, simply because your business needed help writing up a few contracts?
No you wouldn’t!, you would enlist the help of a lawyer!
So why do companies, leave their sales and marketing function up in the air, knowing that their internal staff may be limited in certain areas.
Typically, salaries constitutes the single largest expense in many businesses. However, many small and medium companies just don’t have the resources to take on a new employee for their marketing initiatives or strategy.
But therein lies the benefit of hiring an independent marketing consultant or freelancer! Your business will be able to get critical work done, while allowing for the increases and decreases that come with market conditions and the demand for hiring talent.
Marketing consultants, independent strategists, contractors and freelancers are usually ready to start a project on day one, with no training required.
And most marketing consultants have been fine tuning their craft for years, giving you experience gained from a number of industries and diverse organisations.

A marketing consultant can help you stay laser-focused here, rather than drifting off into the day to day activities.
A marketing consultant can help design a strategy, set the turnaround period for the tasks, and can also help you to monitor everything to make sure that things fall into place.
It’s not uncommon for businesses to go through valleys. But if you are finding it hell to navigate out of those pit falls, you may want to consider external help.
