Small businesses turn to contractors to cut costs

Recently, the Dallas Morning News printed an article called, "Small businesses turn to contractors to cut costs."

"As the recession forces small businesses across the country to cut expenses, some are making a dramatic shift – they're laying off employees and using independent contractors instead.

Hiring contractors rather than employees means businesses don't have to pay for employee benefits and don't owe the government payroll taxes for the contractors."

My website has always highlighted the economic benefits of hiring me as a freelancer to handle your public relations capabilities. I can help you tell your story to the media, position you as an expert in your industry and influence your target audience.

Here are the economic benefits to hiring Lori Bittenbender, PR freelancer:
  • Reduces costs with on-demand, task-specific help.
  • More affordable than a full time, salaried employee. Plus, you don’t have to pay benefits, sick time or vacation.
  • The solution for occasional writing needs.
  • Allows you to focus on what you do best, running your business.
