HOW CAN OUTSOURCING HELP YOUR BUSINESS?

What is Outsourcing? 

Outsourcing is a way to hand over tasks or business processes to a third-party.

If you are planning some well deserved time away, outsourcing some of your daily tasks so things can continue smoothly, can be a huge compliment to your business.  Companies from any size can benefit from this service.

Why Outsource?

If you are finding that your business is outgrowing the growth of your team, this might be a good time to consider this as an option.  You can’t be all things in your business.  

Feed into your talents and the talents of those that work with you.  If there is something different required, some task that is being neglected, you may want to outsource that specific project work. 

When is a good time to consider this?

You will want to pick a time in your business when things are a little quieter.  You will need the time to research whom a good fit will be with your business and develop what your working steps will be together.  This way when your business picks up again, you will be prepared. 

Here are 4 steps to consider when preparing to outsource.

  1. Duration –  Is it an ongoing project or a one-time contract?
  2. Tasks – What do you need support with?  Do you have a framework or a clear list of directions set up?  You can do this through a google document.  This will give you a clear vision of what your business needs are and what you are requiring to hand over to a trusted expert.
  3. Deadlines – Set up a Task Management System before any work begins.  This will help streamline tasks throughout the project.  
  4. Deliverables – Utilize the task management system you have in place and have clear deadlines and expectations set out for your work.
