Hiring a sales force outsourcing firm can help a small manufacturer compete with the large manufacturing companies. Sales force outsourcing companies offer a wide variety of services. They can generate sales leads and set appointments, create targeted e-mail and direct mailing lists, and offer direct marketing services, such as creating brochures, targeted sales letters, and catalogs.

A sales force outsourcing firm can also create an external sales team for a company. They can recruit, hire, and train sales representatives, leaving the company managers free to concentrate on running the business. A sales force outsourcing firm can be a true cost-saving method of increasing sales.

The Pros of Sales Force Outsourcing

Hiring a sales force outsourcing firm can save a manufacturer money. It gives the manufacturer the benefit of the outsourcing firm's experience in sales and marketing and frees up the time of the in-house executives. The president of a small manufacturer may play the role of financial officer and VP of sales and marketing as well as head of product development. Hiring a sales force outsourcing firm allows this busy company head to focus on his strengths and allows others to concentrate on developing marketing and sales plans.

Hiring a sales force outsourcing firm can also save time--time spent generating leads, time putting together direct mail and e-mail lists, and time setting and reconfirming sales appointments. Time is also saved by the outside firm's training, recruiting, and hiring sales personnel on the manufacturer's behalf.
