A very interesting question. Well-known business coaches even often recommend cutting their own staff and deo=alloying some tasks to third-party services, supposedly this has a positive effect on business development. I have a conflicting opinion on this matter, but I can definitely say about the effectiveness of using outsourcing company services My business friends have tested this on their companies, this business practice really brings positive results.
