As a business owner your time is valuable and you need to use it wisely, this is why you should outsource mundane tasks for your business while you concentrate on building revenue. You can use remote workers for many of the tasks so you don’t need additional office space. Not only that this can free you up from the activities that don’t make you money but rather cost you time. Let’s have a look at some of the things you can outsource.
Administrative duties including data entry, invoicing and managing your calendar can all be done by someone else. Your virtual assistant can report to you as needed and you can work on other projects.
Email and Customer Service
Most communication between businesses and their customers is done electronically. That’s not the only aspect of your email that needs attention there is also organization, setting up autoresponders and sending out newsletters. You also have basic customer service that can be done through chat support, follow ups with your customers, all of this can be handled by in office support staff or a remote worker.
Social Media Management
Today everybody is on social media so your business needs to be there too, but creating and posting content is time consuming. This is a task you can definitely outsource. With tools like HootSuite or Buffer you can put together a month’s worth of content in an afternoon. Having a consistent social media presence helps you to stay engaged with customers.
Web Design and Video Marketing
While there are plenty of tools out there to help you create videos and build your own website they do come with a learning curve and it will take time to not only learn this skill but also to create the site and videos. This is best left in the hands of someone who does this for a living. There are other specialized fields when it comes to your website like SEO or advanced video marketing that is better off being outsourced.
