Many marketers and agencies are struggling to successfully engage consumers in digital channels due to the increased complexity in required tools, technologies and processes. Today, digitalArbor, a digital production services partner, revealed the findings of its survey of more than 125 marketers and agency professionals across the United States, indicating a strong shift to outsourcing in the digital production arena.

In fact, 79 percent of survey respondents said that they had outsourced digital production projects in 2010, and already the majority (75 percent) plan to continue to do so in 2011, with a five percent increase in outsourcing by external agencies. The vast majority (77 percent) plan to outsource domestically and 23 percent said they plan to use resources outside of the United States in 2011.
“As consumers shift to digital devices, many marketers and agencies face heightened demand for digital innovation coupled with the growing technical complexity to build, maintain and measure digital initiatives in an resource-constrained environment, ” said Robert Willms, CEO of digitalArbor. “Many in-house and external agencies have already turned to digital production outsourcing partnerships to stay efficient, profitable and, most importantly, relevant in today’s digital era. Based on this survey, we expect that the volume of outsourced Web, display ad, E: and other digital content and communications production will grow substantially in 2011.”

What is Being Outsourced?
According to the survey results, website development was the most commonly outsourced digital project (77 percent), followed by display ad and rich media development (63 percent) and E: marketing (44 percent). In contrast, mobile marketing (23 percent), application and tool integration (20 percent) and video (three percent) were the least likely projects to be outsourced.

Key Outsourcing Drivers and What to Look For In a Partner
An overwhelming majority of respondents (89 percent) indicated that lack of in-house resources (skills, time, etc.) was the primary reason for outsourcing digital production projects. Surprisingly, very few respondents indicated that shifting budgets to strategic resources (six percent) or improving agency margins (five percent) were primary drivers.

When looking for a production partner, respondents indicated they were looking for high quality results (93 percent) from a highly skilled team (90 percent). Although the majority (57 percent) of respondents indicated that timing (time-consuming processes and missed deadlines) was their biggest historical outsourcing challenge, fast-turnaround was not viewed as a top requirement for evaluating third-party digital production providers (63 percent).

2011 Digital Production Outsourcing Outlook
To augment available in-house resources, shift budget to strategic resources and improve agency margins, three-fourths of respondents (75 percent) plan to outsource digital production projects in 2011. Respondents indicated that agency management (48 percent) is the key driver behind digital production outsourcing initiatives followed by the production department (40 percent) and clients (27 percent).
