What you should outsource to freelancers
As a business owner, deciding what should be performed in-house and what should be outsourced to freelancers can be a difficult decision.
In today’s post, I will provide some of the most common outsourced jobs that you may want to consider utilizing freelancers for. Scroll down and see if any of these are jobs you may want to consider.
Social site management
Creating posts for your business social sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more can be performed by a freelancer who is given the information you desire to be posted. You will just want to check their work from time-to-time. Using this method will free up in-house staff to perform other duties.
Website management and development
By using freelancers in handling your website management and development, you are able to choose the best of the best. Instead of hiring an in-house person that you will have to provide an office and equipment, using a freelancer, you cut down on the benefits you will have to pay. Sure, the price may be higher up front, but once you add in vacation, sick pay, insurance and more, you are saving money.
Every business has a plethora of documents, advertising, blog posts, web content, newsletters, and other items that need words. One of the largest freelancing occupations is writers. That is my expertise. Using freelance writers, you can get all the words you need without having to do it yourself or have an hourly employee do it.
If you are in need of any type of written content, contact me, and I will provide a reasonable bid.
Instead of trying to figure out all those numbers yourself, it can be to your advantage by contracting a freelance accountant or bookkeeper. This person can also prepare your taxes and make sure your business is financially compliant.
There are those times you may need photos for advertisements, blog posts or website content, or any other business need. You can find the best photographers through the freelance world.
Many businesses that use telemarketing as a sales or lead mechanism have discovered it can be more cost efficient in hiring freelance telemarketers. You will not have to set up more phone lines, computers and the other items that telemarketers would need. Consider contracting a freelance telemarketer instead of doing it in-house.
These are just a few of the jobs you may want to consider outsourcing. Outsourcing can save money in the long run.
