When you’re a small business owner, everything is on you. You’re in charge of sales, customer service, social media, returns, accounting—the whole nine yards.
Just writing this out has me exhausted. There are a lot of things you need to be responsible for, and let’s be honest, most of the time, you don’t get everything done by the end of the day.
When I started my business, I couldn’t stand doing bookkeeping. I always pushed it to the next day. And eventually, it would take me weeks before I did my bookkeeping. It’s not my thing (can you blame me?), and I would rather focus my time scaling my business.
And that’s where, as a business owner, you need to decide where to invest your time and whether outsourcing certain tasks will help your business.
In this article, I’m going to talk about why you should consider outsourcing.
What Is Outsourcing?
Outsourcing is when you hire a freelancer or agency to take on certain tasks in your business. The goal of outsourcing is to alleviate the business owner from time-consuming tasks, so you can focus on running your business.
With 45% of entrepreneurs experiencing stress, outsourcing can help eliminate these tasks off your plate so you can focus on scaling your business.
Here are some tasks you can outsource for your business:
- Accounting: Bookkeeping, tax accounting, invoices, etc.
- Marketing: Social media, content creation, SEO, web design
- Administrative tasks: Managing emails, scheduling appointments, data entry
- Customer support: Answering emails, engaging on social media,
- Research: Market/target research, competitor research
