We’ve been posting a lot lately about the benefits of outsourced services and how to choose the right outsource partner. Today let’s talk about the little jobs that can be outsourced that may save you enough time to make it worth your while.
While this isn’t specifically IT-related, it is all about helping you be more efficient and productive – which also happens to be a key goal of our technology solutions!
Recently, we’ve been using a website called Upwork.com to outsource some graphic design work. It’s similar to freelancer.com, fiverr.com or many other online freelance hiring boards. Even though we could do the work ourselves, we don’t have a graphic design expert in house, so it takes a little extra time to get it done. So, sending it out to a freelancer saves us tons of time with which we can do much more important things.
Of course, there are some things that wouldn’t be feasible to leave to a freelancer: IT services, accounting services, many HR tasks…these things are too critical to your business to trust to someone that’s only loosely involved. But, I’m willing to bet there are things you do now and then, or maybe even every week, that you can pass off to someone else.
You might need some proofreading now and then, some help polishing up your PowerPoint pitch or writing a sell sheet on a new service. Maybe you occasionally need a translator, or you’ve gathered data that needs to be entered into a spreadsheet or other system.
Instead of using up your valuable time or passing it off to another member of your team who has more important tasks to complete, consider looking into a freelance website that helps you locate just the right person for your small-time job.
If you need further help making your business more efficient and productive, we’d be happy to help you figure out how your technology can help you reach those business goals. Reach out today!
