How is Vixure Fractional Teams better than hiring a full-time community manager?

Certainly, hiring a full-time community manager is a viable option and it’s understandable why that might seem appealing. However, there are several advantages to choosing our fractional digital consulting services, particularly in the context of a community manager role. Let’s compare the two approaches:

  1. Access to a Broader Skill Set: With our fractional services, you’re not just getting a community manager; you’re getting access to a team with a diverse set of skills. This includes not only community management but also expertise in areas like content strategy, marketing automation, account-based marketing, and analytics. It’s a multi-disciplinary team at your disposal.
  2. Cost Efficiency: Hiring a full-time community manager means a fixed salary, benefits, and other employment costs. Our fractional service offers the expertise you need without the full financial commitment of a full-time hire. This can be particularly advantageous if your current budget doesn’t support another full-time position.
  3. Strategic Oversight: Our team doesn’t just execute tasks; we provide strategic oversight. We help in devising strategies that align community management efforts with your broader business goals, something that a standalone community manager might not be equipped to do.
  4. Flexibility and Scalability: Our services are flexible and scalable. As your needs change, we can adjust the level of support and types of expertise provided. This flexibility is harder to achieve with a full-time employee whose role and skills might be more fixed.
  5. Fresh Perspectives and Industry Insights: Our team brings fresh perspectives and the latest industry insights. This external viewpoint can be invaluable in identifying opportunities and strategies that an internal employee, working in the same environment day in and day out, might miss.
  6. Reduced Management Overhead: When you engage with our fractional services, you’re also reducing the management overhead associated with a full-time hire. We manage our team, allowing you to focus on other critical aspects of your business.
  7. Rapid Deployment and Integration: Our team can be deployed rapidly and integrated with your existing operations with minimal downtime. Hiring and onboarding a new full-time employee can be a more time-consuming process.
  8. Risk Mitigation: Utilizing our fractional services can also be a way to mitigate risk. You can test new strategies and approaches with less commitment than hiring a full-time employee. If your needs change, scaling down or adjusting our services is straightforward.

While having a full-time community manager has its merits, particularly in terms of availability and potential long-term stability, our fractional digital consulting services offer a comprehensive, flexible, and cost-effective alternative that aligns with broader strategic goals.
