What is Outsourcing for Small Businesses?
Outsourcing is exactly what the word implies – taking some of the tasks you need to run your business or implement your marketing plan, and having people outside your company, who have an expertise in these areas, perform the tasks.
Outsourcing allow you to do more, with less. By putting the right tasks in the right people’s hands, you maximize the efforts of everyone. This allows you to have much better results and overall better returns on investment and profit margins. Outsourcing also provides you with happier customers and employees as well.
The biggest mistake any small business owner can make is trying to do everything themselves. It is a common trap people fall into. You look at something and think “that is not that hard, I can do that”. Or “Why would I pay someone $200 to do xyz, when I can learn and do it myself?”. The business owner who says this ends up spending time, energy and probably some money learning how to do something that they will never be great at. This also takes them away from what they are great at, their business services!
As a business owner you can outsource anything from graphic design to sales call follow-ups, accounting, programming, cleaning and more. You can also outsource many things worldwide as well.
This is the second BIG advantage of outsourcing. You are not limited to local talent. If you need killer copy-writing or marketing and there is an expert in your field 2,000 miles away, you can hire them. You do not have to settle for someone local who does not quite fit your needs. Nor do you have to try and make one of your current employees learn something they are not going to be effective at doing.
