As companies develop their growth strategies, management teams increasingly recognize that outsourced marketing can be an efficient instrument to achieve their revenue goals.
Therefore, a growing number of companies are farming out marketing operations and analytics. Data mining, client database and lead management outsourcing are growing fast. Dynamic pricing models are used to price services in real time to align offer and demand. These models may include price elasticity as one of the factors to determine the optimum price in order to maximize profit.
By outsourcing marketing, forwarders can surpass their competitors and reinforce both revenue and bottom line while focusing their own teams on key projects. In all cases, forwarders stay in charge and drive the marketing strategy. Outsourced marketing operations are like an extension of their sales team, and the contents of a marketing campaign are fully adapted such as targets, sectors, creative design, digital channels, pricing tiers, etc. to generate demand and enhance sales conversion.
As a result, companies often see their marketing suppliers as true partners that can create shared value over the long term.
