Feeling overwhelmed with your to-do list at work? How often is your answer, “I don’t have enough time,” when you’re questioned for past due projects? Well, you’re not alone.

Does this sound familiar… You build your marketing plan/budget in the fall, it gets approved, the new year rolls around and you’re feeling super optimistic. You’re confident you’re going to tackle, conquer and meet or exceed budgeted sales.

Before you know it Q1 is over and between the day-to-day tasks that come up and your to-do list, you’re now feeling buried in work and not meeting budget. What you should have completed in Q1 has now snowballed into Q2. Every day that passes is another day you can’t make it up to capture sales.

Perhaps you’re the only one who handles marketing or you wear a few more hats in addition to the marketing role.

A solution to consider: hiring a freelancer or flex help.

Below are five solid reasons to build your case for hiring a freelancer so you can eliminate the excuse of, "I don't have time" and start taking action.

Stop drowning in work and start checking things off your list.
