The Power of Outsourcing Marketing with Growth by Design

In an era where finding and retaining top marketing talent is like searching for a needle in a haystack, credit unions face significant challenges. The traditional approach of hiring in-house marketing professionals not only comes with the burden of recruitment costs but also entails the looming threat of “key man risk” – the vulnerability that arises when a crucial team member departs, leaving a gaping hole in the organization’s capabilities. However, there’s a smarter, more efficient solution on the horizon: outsourcing marketing to experts like Growth by Design.

Growth by Design offers a compelling alternative to the conventional model of in-house marketing departments. Through their retainer program, they become the dedicated marketing arm for credit unions, streamlining operations, enhancing efficiency, and ensuring consistent brand representation across all mediums.

Key Benefits of Outsourcing Marketing to Growth by Design:

  1. Talent Acquisition Simplified

The scarcity of skilled marketing professionals makes recruitment a daunting task. Growth by Design eliminates this headache by providing access to a talented pool of marketers without the need for exhaustive hiring processes.

  1. Cost-Effectiveness

Outsourcing marketing to Growth by Design proves to be more cost-effective than maintaining an in-house team. With no benefits to be paid and a transparent retainer fee structure, credit unions can allocate their resources more efficiently.

  1. Streamlined Management

Instead of juggling multiple relationships with various freelancers or agencies, credit unions can rely on Growth by Design as a single point of contact for all their marketing needs. This simplifies communication, enhances coordination, and fosters a more productive working relationship.

  1. Specialized Expertise

Growth by Design boasts a highly skilled and specialized creative team proficient in various marketing mediums, including web, social, and digital. Unlike a single in-house marketer who might be a “jack of all trades,” Growth by Design offers expertise tailored to specific marketing channels, ensuring optimal results.

  1. Brand Consistency

Maintaining brand consistency is crucial for credit unions to establish trust and credibility among their members. With Growth by Design overseeing all marketing efforts, brand messaging and visual identity remain cohesive across every touchpoint, reinforcing the credit union’s brand image.

  1. Focus on Core Activities

By entrusting marketing responsibilities to Growth by Design, credit unions can free up their internal staff to focus on core activities. This allows employees to dedicate their time and energy to serving members and driving the credit union’s mission forward without being bogged down by marketing tasks.
