Do you outsource? If the answer to that is no why not?
I’ve been resistant to outsourcing for quite a while but a few months ago I bit the bullet and started to use freelancers to do tasks I didn’t like doing or doing tasks that they would be better at.
One of the reasons I took so long to outsource was I thought that no one knew my business as well as I did and no one could do a better job than me. This was naiviety on my part. Using freelancers has freed me up to do things that I am good at. Finding new methods , testing them and coming up with idea’s for sites and products. So instead of spending 5 hours writing 10 articles I can spend that time more productivly. (or going for long cycle rides in the mountains around here!)
Take a while to think about it, do the articles you distribute make 3 or 4 sales each time you distribute them? If they don’t then surely a professional writer who can produce articles that sell products would be useful to you. Even if they charge you $15 if you are making $100 from each article then surely you should be having as many article you can afford written. If they do then train up a writer to prepare the articles for you and then just add your secret sauce.
Last week I paid a new writer $8 for an article to test her out, the article was released in ezinearticles yesterday within 24 hours it has had 220 views and made 2 sales of $26 each. What I do next is a no brainer isn’t it!
Look at you business and work out where you can save time by outsourcing, concentrate on your strengths and outsource your weaknesses or time consuming tasks.
