• Order fulfillment
• Customer relationship management
• Information technology (IT)
• Human resources/ benefits /payroll
• Web design, development, maintenance

But if you are thinking, “why on earth should I care about outsourcing my marketing when I already have a marketing department?” Well, the truth is you have every right to maintain a marketing department, but let’s be a wee bit honest do you want to?
