An additional option is to outsource the task, not the employee. Outsource selected marketing services, such as writing/distributing a press release or creating a website, rather than trying to hire a contractor on an hourly basis or trying to train an employee to become a specialist. Many of these services can be purchased at a fixed published price at websites like Marketing Outfield. These marketing investments can result in increased profit, allowing you to grow your core group of employees.
