As an online freelancer, there are a ton of things that I can outsource and have others do. Also, it also seems like there are a lot of people lined up to become a virtual assistant.
Outsourcing work is great because it can free up time so that you can focus on other areas of your business. This can help you earn more money in that you can focus on the bigger picture most likely, instead of having to be bogged down by tedious tasks that don’t necessarily need you.
Here are five tasks that you can outsource to make your day better.
1. Social Media Management.
Do you even know what you are doing with your social media accounts? It may seem easy to manage at first, but for some it is actually very difficult.
And then, once you throw in all of the various social media accounts that you have to learn about (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and so on), you may feel like your head is about to fall off.
2. E-mail Management.
Whenever I wake up each morning, I usually open up my e-mail inboxes (I have around 6 altogether for my various websites and businesses) and want to cry.
E-mails are great, but there are so many of them! Sometimes I get around 200 in just the morning, and then as the day goes on, of course that number increases as well.
Do you have a company blog that you need writing for? Blog content can help bring potential customers to your website, but if you don’t know how to write well then you might just be scaring them away.
You could hire someone to write on your blog as a weekly staff writer, ghost writer and more.
Research can mean many things. Maybe you need help with researching possible new markets to enter. Research could also mean looking for ways to advertise, looking for new product ideas, new service ideas, new content ideas and more.
5. Graphic and Web Design.
If you do not know what you are doing, then you should not do your own graphic or web design. I repeat, YOU SHOULD NOT do your own graphic or web design.
You should be looking for a talented designer who can make something depending on what you are looking for.
