Outsourcing & Ops: Removing Repetitive Tasks

Outsourcing & Ops: Removing Repetitive Tasks

In an ever-evolving workforce, Publishers must implement and move forward with strategies that will last. Otherwise, Publishers run the risk of decreasing efficiency and losing profit. 

Rob Beeler, Founder and CEO of Beeler.Tech, shared his professional insights regarding Publisher strategies that “will stand the test of time” in an AdExchanger article titled, Publishers, Your Top Ops Talent Needs Your Attention

Of course, you can see where Beeler is headed: Publishers’ operations leaders need to be in the spotlight. These unsung heroes are essential strategic thinkers that inspire creative efficiencies within the Publishing company. 

Shifting from a Sales-Only to an Ops-Centered Perspective

According to Beeler, the problem is that leaders tend to invest little quality time in ops talent and are, instead, focused on sales. This is a natural focus, of course — the sales team is out there selling, so why wouldn’t you turn your attention to their efforts? But an increase in sales team members inherently means an increase in operational costs that don’t always see a return on investment. Publishers need an ops team that is just as effective and efficient as their sales team. 

Unfortunately, though, ops teams get bogged down by back-end assignments that involve repetitive tasks, such as reporting. But are these mundane duties the best use of their time? 

In agreement with Beeler, we would answer with an emphatic no; a Publisher’s ops team should be utilized for brainstorming concrete strategies that actually help “move the needle”. Ops teams should focus on: 

  • Analyzing the driving forces of successful advertising performances and user engagements 
  • Strategizing creative efficiencies 
  • Crafting workflows that reduce time spent on repetitive tasks 
  • Brainstorming leadership ideas to inform business growth  

But, as much as they are a burden, these back-end, repetitive tasks need to get done somehow. And that’s where the next evolution of the publishing industry comes in: outsourcing.
