How To Get Started With Outsourcing In Your Business

By

Every business owner knows that the only way to really grow and scale a business and for them to be able to focus on the things they’re best at is to outsource and get help with running the business.

However, that certainly doesn’t mean it’s an easy thing to do – when you first start your business, you go in full of passion and drive, and because you have so much passion for your business, it almost becomes your baby and this can make it extremely hard to let go – even though you know it’s actually the best thing.

The best way to go about outsourcing is to not try and do everything at once. You’re the owner of the business and you can do what feels right to you, so start slowly and build things up once you start seeing how great it actually is to outsource things.

If you’ve been struggling to outsource things until now, then in this post we’re going to share with you some tips on how to get started with outsourcing in your business.

 

Make a list:

The first step to outsourcing successfully is knowing what you need to be outsourcing and what you can be doing on your own, so at this stage you should make a list. This can be done on paper or it can be done on a Google doc. Simply get your document in whichever format and give it a title that’s meaningful to you, then write down every single task that gets done in your business.

Now you’re going to add a new page and split it into two categories. One is the side for the things you want to do/have to do/enjoy doing. The other side is for those tasks that you really don’t like or where you feel like your time and energy isn’t best spent.

For example, maybe you really enjoy writing your own blog posts, but you hate editing them, so this is something you feel would be better outsourced.

 

Do your research:

Now that you know what tasks you need to outsource, it’s time to do some research on the best people to perform those tasks. You may prefer to go with a company like Spectrumwise who can manage multiple things for you, or maybe you only want to hire a Virtual Assistant for a few hours per week who can just do one or two things.

 

Do a trial run:

Once you’ve done some research on the people who you could potentially hire to do the tasks you need, then you should have a trial one with one or two people for a week or so to see how they actually work and if you’re both a good fit for each other. If you’ve determined that you are, then you can continue working together or you can move on and find someone else who may be more suited to your needs.

Evaluate and expand:

 

As with everything in your business, you need to keep evaluating the progress you can see what’s working and what’s not. Then, once you feel comfortable with outsourcing and start building that trust, you can start to expand on the hours you’re hiring someone for.
