Grow Marketing Agencies with Low-Cost Orange County Staffing
Marketing agencies in Orange County are struggling to find staffing solutions at an affordable cost, preventing growth …
Obtaining affordable personnel can be daunting. The biggest challenge facing so many Orange County marketing agencies like yours is finding a reliable staffing source. You likely find it especially arduous to hire the right people for the right positions, at a cost you can afford.
You may be an expert at acquiring customers, but struggle to serve those clients adequately. You need help.
Likewise, the cost of employees in Southern California is sky-high, which can hurt a growing company’s profit margin at a time when they need the capital. Agencies in other states have a strategic advantage over you when competing for customers because their payroll expenses are so much less. They’re able to generate profit at a faster rate than you.

Why Hire in the Philippines?
Many Filipinos are well-educated and industrious, looking for opportunities, which they can’t find in their home country. A job that’s reliable, stable, and high-paying (for their country) can be a game-changing opportunity for them. Many are smart, skilled, and talented individuals who want to provide a better life for their families, without having to leave their home and culture.
Ideal Marketing Positions for Filipino Assistants
Advertising agencies need highly skilled managers and creatives to produce results for their clients. But a lot of companies waste their most talented employees’ time with work which they could easily delegate.
Example 1: Copywriting
A U.S.-based copywriter is uniquely gifted at writing compelling ads, promotional copy, or digital content, but she spends too much time adding the content into website builders and managing the printing process of flyers, banners, or marketing material.
Example 2: IT Development
An Anaheim web developer is remarkably adept at high-level problem solving but finds herself spending too much time writing simple code. A less experienced developer can complete these routine tasks efficiently, at a fraction of the cost of an employee living in California.
Example 3: Graphic Design
A veteran graphic designer in Santa Ana is talented at producing branding strategies for his agency’s top customers. With a graphic design assistant, he can pass on the execution of the branding strategy, focusing his time on profitable opportunities.
Develop Managers through Virtual Hiring
You will be surprised!
You may find that after several years of working with a new Filipino professional, they’re capable of managing a team, executing highly creative work for your agency, at a fraction of the cost you’d spend on a similar individual living in Orange County.

Common Concerns Orange County Marketing Agencies Have about Staffing Virtually
Okay, let’s get real here!
You’re still not jazzed about the idea of hiring a remote employee. You’re a control freak. We get it. Every successful business person wants to keep their critical duties from being torn away from their omnipotent hands. Hiring offshore is probably a bit out of your comfort zone.
Everyone has excuses for why they shouldn’t hire virtual employees. But that’s all they are. Excuses.
Here are some common concerns:
“But everything I work on is visual. I need to be able to point at the computer screen and show my employee what they need to change.”
Screen capture video technology allows you to easily show a staff member what they need to change about anything graphical.
H3: Time Difference
“I need to communicate with my advertising staff in real-time. If I’m working on a project in the middle of the day in Irvine, and it’s the middle of the night in the Philippines, I don’t want to have to wait until tomorrow to hear back from them.”
Many Filipinos are willing to work night shifts in their country to be available to communicate with their Orange County managers. Instant messaging makes fixing problems a piece of cake.
H3: Company Culture
“I’m not sure they’ll fit into the highly competitive and aggressive company culture I’ve cultivated in my team?”
There are cultural differences between Americans and Filipinos. But like all human beings, they adapt and meet expectations when their manager communicates those standards effectively.
“I write ad copy in English. Do they understand the language well enough to write professionally?”
There are highly skilled writers of English in the Philippines. We will find a Filipino writer for you who can compose English better than most Americans.
