So you’ve hit a point in your business where you are earning ok money and you want to take your business to the next level. How is the best way to do this?
With outsourcing of course!
Outsourcing is the best way to expand your business and make more money.
Initially, the idea of taking on extra help can be difficult. If you are anything like me then you may worry about handing over control to others, that you might end up working harder giving tasks to another, training them and checking their work than just doing it yourself. However, if you want your business to grow, you need to let go of being in control of every minute detail and learn to trust others.
Hiring staff and contractors is a fabulous way to free up your own time to work on the tasks that really matter – like growing your business. They can also let you expand on what you already do.
What would you do with twice as much time to work? Think about that, write down the tasks and then give it to someone else.
Who can you hire?
There are so many different professions you can hire online. A place people usually start is with a virtual assistant or VA. They can do so many tasks – writing emails, sorting your inbox, social media, delegating tasks to others, updating your website, internet research, making phone calls. The list is endless. You might find even hiring a VA for just a few hours a week can make a big difference to your available time.
You can also hire writers, programmers, designers, bookkeepers, data entry and many other workers. If you are able to do the job on your laptop, then probably someone else can too.
Where do you find workers?
There are quite a few sites online where you can find workers. Upwork is a good place to start. This has the biggest range of people available to work for you. If you can’t find someone to do a task on here then you probably won’t find anyone anywhere.
The prospect of hiring someone from another country can be daunting at first, but it is a very cost effective way to go if you live in a country where pay rates are high.
The fact is that if you can outsource some of your own work to free up your time then you might be amazed by how much more money you can make. It’s the best way to take your business to the next level.
