“Isn’t outsourcing expensive and difficult?”
Lots of people who’re new to outsourcing ask this question.
They’ve heard horror stories of projects that have dragged out for months. They’ve heard of people getting low-quality work. There are even a few cases of people paying and getting nothing in return.
But here’s the thing: All of these horror stories happen to a tiny minority of business owners. And it often happens to those who don’t know the right way to outsource. But for those who know the truth about outsourcing, you’ll see them singing its praises.
I started outsourcing smaller tasks about 4 or 5 years ago. It’s been a huge time saver and stress reliever to hand off my graphic design tasks.
In my experience, NOTHING will help you grow your business faster than a handpicked outsourcing team! Being a solopreneur, I really have a heart for other independent business owners who don’t have the time or skill to manage of the responsibilities needed to make their business run.
Here are five reasons why business owners all over the world happily outsource their entire business… and why you should too:
Reason 1: You get to focus on the “high value” tasks. There’s nothing worse than spending hours doing a low-value task (like creating a graphic or writing articles) when you have other high-value tasks on your to-do list, like recruiting joint venture partners or drafting a marketing plan. Savvy business owners know that the key to business growth is to hand the low-value tasks to someone else so that you have time to focus on the high-value tasks.
Reason 2: A professional often can create better results. I don’t know about you, but I’m far from being an expert on a variety of business tasks, like graphics, programming, design and more. Sound familiar? Then start outsourcing, because a professional will most certainly do a better job since they’re the expert.
Reason 3: A professional can often do it for cheaper than you. Time is money, right? So every hour you spend on a task may cost you $50, $100 or more. If you attach a dollar figure to your time and then start calculating how much it “costs” you to do a job yourself, you may be startled to discover that a professional can actually do the job for less cost than you!
Example: If your time is worth $50 an hour, and it takes you an hour to write an article, then that article costs you $50 to do yourself. I bet you can find a competent writer to do the article for half the cost – thereby saving you both time and money!
Reason 4: You’ll stop struggling to move forward. One of the major reasons business owners struggle to grow their business is because they spend too much time struggling with daily tasks. For example, it may take a beginner an entire day to install a script on a website. But a professional could do the same task in as little as 10 minutes. It used to take me more than 30 minutes to install a WordPress website. Now, I can get it done in under 15 minutes.
If you’re going to move forward, you have to stop struggling. Stop trying to climb steep learning curves. Stop wasting time learning how to do frustrating tasks. Just hire a professional to do it instead!
Reason 5: You’ll enjoy more free time. You don’t have to be chained to your business 24 hours a day in order for it to grow and be successful. If you outsource, you can spend just a few hours a week working in your business. And that frees you to do the things you really enjoy, like spend time with your friends and family, enjoy your hobbies and do more traveling!
It’s clear to see why so many savvy business owners outsource their entire business… and why you should too.
But before you even think of hiring a freelancer, you need to learn the ropes. I’ve always made faster advances by hiring a coach, buying their training course, or attending a webinar.
I recently interviewed a very successful internet marketing coach to learn how they went about outsourcing. I took from his notes and templates to create a free report on how you can outsource 70-75% of your tasks and run your business in as few as 3 hours a day. This process is painless, productive and profitable. And that’s why you need to click here to check out the Easy Outsourcing for Internet Marketing Course.
