How can companies set up their Offshore Digital Marketing delivery team



It is no secret that India is the top outsourcing destination in the world. In a US survey, 82% of US based companies voted for India as their most preferred choice for software outsourcing. It has also become the preferred destination for IT outsourcing with approximately 65% of all outsourced IT jobs, according to Booth & Partners.

This same model of outsourcing can be gainfully used by companies to source digital marketing services from leading edge professionals based in India. The huge cost advantage that India offers over the US and other Western economies for comparable world-class services should in itself make outsourcing a winning proposition at a time when efficiency more than any other factor stands between the life and death of most businesses. But that’s just the start: With Partners like Outsourced CMO dedicating proven digital marketing specialists with years of quality experience to these companies the India deal becomes pretty much irresistible.

According to WebFX in the US the monthly cost of search engine optimization (SEO) can be as much as $20,000 while pay-per-click advertising (PPC) accounted for 5-20% of monthly corporate ad spends and email marketing cost $0.1 - $0.5/email. Social media marketing set companies in the US back by $10,000 a month on an average. The average digital marketing budget for small and medium business ranged from USD 30,000 USD to 1,45,000.



Such figures are quiet simply unheard of in India where even companies that spend big on marketing routinely get digital marketing services from the best in the business at a small fraction of those rates. Even advanced SEO services in the country would seldom cost more than USD 1400 per month and companies would almost never have to fork out more than USD 3000 per month to make social media work wonders for them. Even large cap companies in India would rarely if ever think of setting aside USD 30,000 per month for digital marketing. The dramatically cheaper service costs here are largely owing to the much lower salary levels of digital marketing professionals in India as compared to their comparable peers in the US or Europe. On an average, the salaries of professionals in those nations are four to six times higher.

So, it should make great sense for companies in the western world to outsource digital marketing strategies to companies in India. But how do these companies capitalize on the massive cost advantage that India offers? Clearly, since a sound understanding of the cultural, demographic and other region-specific nuances of a market are crucial for the success of any marketing plan, these companies should aim to continue building the strategies themselves and rake in the profits from outsourcing their execution to professionals in India.

But why India?

Availability of finest talent

India has the world’s largest technical and industrial talent pool. And this pool is constantly being upgraded at a rapid rate with millions of graduates joining the workforce every year.

Proficiency in English

English is the language of business in the US and in a major part of the world and it is here that India really scores big. There are more English-speaking people in India than in the entire Europe, not counting the UK.

24X7 service

The time difference between India and the US and Europe means that companies based in the US or Europe can enjoy round the clock services if they outsource digital marketing to India. This speeds up the work process in a controlled manner.

 Young workforce

India has a large proportion of young workforce. Nearly 50% of its population is less than 25 years of age while two-thirds are less than 35.  All of this makes India an ideal destination for US and Western companies to gainfully outsource their digital marketing activity.

Businesses have had to evolve strategies and embrace new technologies to keep pace with this rapid transformation be it the increasing use of AIand automation for a variety of purposes,the use of various software, 3 D printing, collaborative consumption etc.
What is the issue ?
But one issue that continues to remain steadfastly in the current fast moving digital era, is the issue of talent sharing across domains.
Even as the employment landscape and norms are changing with the emergence of the gig economy and businesses themselves are resorting to the contractual method of work on an increasing scale it is pertinent to ask how fair is it to restrict the natural flow of talent possessed by professionals and debar them from maximizing their …

ENTREPRENEURS ARE NOT BORN, THEY ARE MADE....

An entrepreneur is an individual who sets up a business, assuming the risk and rewards of the venture. Now the question arises, are entrepreneurs born with business acumen or an individual can hone his skills to become a successful entrepreneur? It is a matter of nature versus nurture. A couple of decades ago we could have easily accepted the fact that entrepreneurs are born looking at the history of success stories of the likes of Dhirubhai Ambani,Ratan Tata and Seth Shiv Narayan Birla to name a few. Back then there was no lack of ideas or funding-rather there was a dearth of driven, capable and obsessional entrepreneurs.
But with the advent of digital revolution, learning and developing certain skill sets is just a click away. Sharp focus on objective and an insatiable desire to succeed can move an entrepreneurial venture to great heights. Truly, a burning desire has devious ways of transmuting itself into its physical equivalent.
The entrepreneur of today works backwards on his visio…
