Your company knows a lot. Your product, your customers, your sales numbers. You know how to create and package your product. In summation, when it comes to your product, it seems that your company truly knows a lot. But when it comes to everything related to your business, does the company know it all? And more importantly, can your company do it all?
There are certainly advantages to doing everything in-house. You are closely in-tune with the status of all steps involved because it is being done closer to home. You aren’t paying someone a service fee for doing something that you could be doing yourself. There are disadvantages as well. If something along the pipeline breaks, you are the one that needs to get it fixed immediately. There are only so many hours in the day to get everything done. And all liability falls on your shoulders. All of it.
When it comes to running a business, an owner needs to look at the big picture. Just because you know-how and can do something does not necessarily mean that you or your company should be the one that does it. Sometimes it is more beneficial to step back and let the experts be experts. Your main focus needs to be on your product. Let others focus on the minutia. For every company, the minutia will be different. Maybe you know how to do the labeling for your company, but you realize that paying a wholesale distributor to do the labeling for you makes more sense. It could be that you are familiar with how to do proper advertising, but it is more feasible to have an outside agency handle this aspect for you.
Whichever steps you decide to keep in house, and whichever steps you opt to outsource, always remember to do your research. You will be hard-pressed to find someone who tells you that you have done too much research. Though in the end, you may end up working with the first company you contact, you still need to make sure to contact and research more than one. Finding a company that can handle multiple aspects of your business, such as private labeling and marketing efforts for you, can also be extremely helpful. And of course remember, though it all has to get done, you don’t have to do it all on your own.
