I’m going to go over the top benefits of outsourcing today - with concepts that you may never have considered.
There are two major reasons why you should outsource … because we want to save our time AND have work done by professionals.
Does it make sense to do things we are not particularly good at?
And, should we do routine work, when we could spend that (boring!) time with our families?
People have families and other commitments that mean they can’t take regular office work.
However, they can work for outsourcing companies, particularly in the Philippines, where educational standards are very high and English is standard, but, in comparison with many of us, incomes (and expenses, of course) are very low:
So, what is the best way to ensure that our outsourcing efforts get us the best outcome?
As ever, it’s about having a system.
And following that system.
(Now, where have I told you that before!)
1. Be Specific
Giving your workers all the things you need to be done will make the work easier for both of you.
In fact, they will be happy because they know exactly what you expect and you will be satisfied because you know they understand what you want to achieve.
Failure to be clear about what you expect them to do will leave them guessing and wasting time trying to guess what you had in mind.
The chances of them producing exactly what you wanted directly correlates to how specific you are in your guidelines.
Ensure that you give detailed instructions on what you need to be done.
If possible make a video or come up with a template if it is a task you need to outsource several times in future.
2. Communicate To Them Your Exact Expectations
Give instructions on when you need the task to be completed and the level of quality you expect from them.
Make sure you are in agreement in terms of the time you specify for completion of the job.
Give them time to ask questions and communicate back to you.
This will help you know that they fully understand what you expect. If the topic seems unfamiliar to them or they are not well-versed with the topic, reconsider your decision to hire them.
3. Send Them A Sample of What You Expect
If it is a site that has a style you want, send them the link to know what you expect.
If it is a DIY video you want to be made, send them a similar video.
4. Keep In Touch
Contact them to know if they have any questions and let them know when you need updates.
Whether it is via Skype or email, keep in touch with them. If they fail to reply, be sure to contact them.
5. Don’t Outsource A Project To One Person
Only ever use a company, who will pick and if necessary, train, the right people for your tasks.
People do change jobs, go ill, etc.
Using a company, such as the one I use and recommend takes away all of the hassle.
6. Finally …
Keep in mind that many successful businesses began taking off when they start outsourcing.
Outsourcing multiplies your skills and enables you to have free time to handle your other valuable projects.
This will allow you accomplish it in a much shorter time - and to start another Multiple Source Of Income …
