The issue of outsourcing is one that has generated a lot of talk in many different industries. In today’s world, it is very common for companies of all sizes to outsource some of their operations to third party providers. Common operations being outsourced include marketing and advertising, website creation, production and assembly of products, and customer support.

But for those who need to publish materials on a regular basis, outsourcing is something that is often seen as new and uncommon. However, reports show that an increasing number of businesses are starting to realize the benefits of outsourcing their writing tasks.

Of course, we all know that outsourcing is a topic that can be sometimes viewed with controversy. This is because in many people’s minds, “outsourcing” is seen negatively as they believe that it involves companies who send jobs overseas in an effort to cut costs and undermines the growth of the American economy. But in reality, outsourcing simply refers to hiring a person or company that is not directly employed by the business for a specific task or project. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the job will be sent over to a third world country. In fact, Easley Publications is an American based company that has its offices in New York City. All of our writing operations are done right here at home.

The main benefit of outsourcing writing operations is that it can save both time and money for business owners and administrators. When a project is outsourced, there is no need for a company to seek out candidates for the position and then interview them. Some companies try to get around this problem by having writing done in house by employees whose normal duties don’t always include writing publications for the company.

This can cause certain problems as well. Quality could be an issue. Even if someone is a highly skilled expert in information technology, or a business manager with decades of experience, it doesn’t mean they have the ability to write content that will be appealing to the reader. Furthermore, even if some of your employees have a genuine talent for writing, assigning them the additional task of writing for your publication may take time away from when they would be performing their regular duties. This results in lower productivity and may also cause businesses to run up a lot of costs associated with paying their workers overtime.

Remember that businesses have the ability to work with us either on a regular basis, or for a single project. Therefore, no matter what your needs are, Easley Publications will arrange to meet them with diligence. Also, unlike many of our competitors, we don’t attempt to fit your order into a “package”.
