I met up with a social media client last month to do a strategy session and he happened to mention that his business is built on 100% outsourced talent.  Self-employed consultants, contractors and home-based workers.

Outsourcing is not a new phenomenon but despite the positive advantages many are still speculative about its value and how it can work for them.

Last month’s blog was titled ‘Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should’.  If you missed it click here to give it a read.  It explains how unless a business owner frees up their time and focuses on core activities by delegating everyday tasks it can be detrimental to their health, let alone how their business may be effected.

There are many tasks you can outsource and here is a sample list:

  1. Personal Assistant Services, including email management
  2. Promoting and obtaining opportunities for publicity
  3. Reception Cover
  4. Project Manager
  5. Taking Board minutes
  6. Preparing agendas
  7. Data entry
  8. Phone answering service
  9. Preparing correspondence and documents
  10. Collating reports
  11. Preparing mail merge and email distribution lists
  12. Arranging meetings with clients
  13. Personal diary management
  14. Deliveries
  15. Filing
  16. Social Media maintenance, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Linkedin
  17. Social Media page creation
  18. Website Design and Build
  19. Website maintenance
  20. Newsletter campaigns
  21. Planning seminars, community meetings, presentations, social functions etc

  26. Organising venues
  27. Setting up audio/visual equipment
  28. Liaising with third-party providers

There isn’t a single solution that will work for everybody.  All businesses are different, with varying demands, and everyone has different skill sets – but there will almost certainly be some tasks that can be effectively outsourced, giving you more time to concentrate on growing your business.

Make your personal and business lives more productive, successful and rewarding. Be smart by building yourself a team of professionals that help you achieve the best outcome possible.

If you do this you can find yourself with:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced stress
  • Faster completion of tasks that you may have struggled with in the past
  • Better business growth – or at least time to plan for it
  • More time to spend on activities outside the business

What are you going to outsource today?
