Staying busy is great for business, but there are still only 24 hours in a day (last we checked at least). With an increasing demand for digital media needs, digital media agencies are swamped with work internally and their clients so are increasingly looking to hire graphic designers online.
Many graphic design companies find it necessary to outsource some of the design work to keep up with demanding timelines. This outsourcing can be either for full projects or just for partial components of them and can be a huge job in itself! So what are these 5 compelling reasons to use this type of assistance?
If your company is getting an influx of business, your in-house design staff likely has their hands full. As they can only work on one thing at a time, they have to prioritize their project work, causing extra work to be put on the back burner. An on-demand design agency can provide a short and effective turn around on the work, frequently within a 24 to 48 hour period, depending on the graphic design plan you choose to pursue. You would only need to submit a design request and expect results to come in shortly after.
If your company has so much work that it warrants the addition of another in-house designer, that’s great. But keep in mind that a new designer needs to first be interviewed, hired, needs time to acclimate to your company’s style, train, and feel it is worth their time and effort to stay with your firm. All of these are not exactly conducive to tight project timelines the person is being hired to assist with. Our sourcing of the work, however, does provide the convenience of hopping over those initial and intermediate stages, and skip right to working with an experienced on-demand agent with sufficient experience to help you turn over your project in a very short period.
Some other cost benefits to consider is that an extra designer would need software to work with. This typically requires expenditures on pricey additional licensing fees, which will cut deeper into your hiring budget, while outsourcing requires only a flat fee for the service that a graphic designer (UK based) can provide for you.
Your company may be getting a lot of business, but is your workspace even suitable for an additional employee, nevermind multiple ones? If the answer is no or “not really,” you would need to consider infrastructure costs associated with a new hire. Expanding office space, new equipment, and suitable furniture are all important expenditures to consider when a new employee is brought in. That is before you even talk about the salary that needs to be paid to the new employee.
When considering all of the above costs associated with a new employee, it’s easy to see why many companies would choose to outsource their design projects to a well trained and equipped graphic design agency (UK based).
