By working together with other locally companies you can save yourself time and money. As a business owner you’ll know that it’s not always possible to manage everything yourself and sometimes you may have to turn to other companies and professionals to manage particular elements of your business for you. By choosing local companies not only are you supporting your local community but you could save money on travel and may even be able to provide one another with cutting out the cost all together. Here are services to consider out sourcing locally:

Online Marketing

Online marketing is essential to the success of almost every business. Today traditional marketing methods are not as effective as they used to be; instead online marketing is the most powerful marketing method reaching a large target audience. There are various different ways to market your business online, the most popular being- pay per click, search engine optimisation and social media marketing.

Many businesses choose to outsource internet marketing as it does require a lot of attention and a professional eye. Outsource locally to be able to have as much input into your marketing campaigns as you need, making regular meetings easy to organise.

Catering

Having a local caterer in place can really come in handy, saving you time when you need to host an event or meeting. By choosing a caterer prior to needing to use their services you can visit them to sample the food and come to an agreement on price etc. Then when you do have a meeting with an important client or your hosting a networking event you can simply pick up the phone and put in an order.

I.T Support

Today nearly every business relies on technology to run from day to day. With this in mind could you afford to lose a days trading if your systems fail you? By having an I.T support team in place you can ensure if anything does go wrong it can be quickly fixed minimising the damage to your company. By choosing a local I.T support team this means routine checks can be carried out on your systems making sure everything is running as smoothly as possible for you increasing your productivity.

Training

Training your staff is essential to ensure they can work to the best of their ability. No matter what industry you work in training your staff means you can work together as a team better knowing you all have the same background of knowledge when it comes to working as a company. Local trainers are a great thing to have in place so that any time you think you’re staff need to improve in a particular area or they just need some extra motivation you can easily set this up without having to travel far.

Recruitment

Using a local recruitment company is really helpful as you can meet face to face to discuss your recruitment needs. When you are looking to recruit someone it can take up a lot of time, creating ads, placing them and screening applications. Using a local recruitment company will make the process simple. They will already have local candidates on their books and may have the perfect person in mind for you.
