Here’s a truth that small and medium-size business owners know too well: It’s all hands on deck or the business will sink. However, we’ve seen many entrepreneurs bend their backs over menial tasks, only to neglect the most important aspect of their business: to create more money.
As an entrepreneur, your focus should be on generating income. Not scrambling for receipts for accounting. While wearing different hats could save your company some money, you also lose the opportunity of actually growing your business.
Outsourced tasks will free up your schedule, giving you more time to actually grow your business. Wondering which outsourced services are perfect for your company? Here are 10 ideas:
Hiring an in-house copywriter costs thousands of dollars each month. You can outsource all your content requirements to save on costs. The job can be done remotely, and you will still have control over the output.
- Social Media Marketing
This is one aspect of business that is nice to have but is difficult to maintain. The good news is that you don’t need to update all your social media streams by yourself. You can hire someone to take over your feeds and engage your customers.
- Graphic Design
If you need professional looking graphics for your marketing materials, you can hire a professional graphic designer on an as-needed basis.
- SEO and Web Development
Even if you are a startup, you still need an online representation of your business. Having a website helps your business to be found by more people. You can hire remote web developers and SEO experts to build your online empire from the ground up.
- Medical Transcription
Standardization of medical data is crucial to research. This is why medical providers send audio files of their findings to be converted to text. This is one of the outsourced services that can be done remotely as it doesn’t require much interaction between the healthcare professional and service provider.
- Email Management
With your busy schedule, you don’t have enough time to respond to every email in your inbox. Hiring someone else to read, respond to, and archive your emails will you focus on the most important tasks for the day. You have to the option to be notified at the end of the day or whenever urgent issues arise.
- Personal Bills Payment
Keeping track of your monthly bills can be a burden. A remote assistant can help you manage payments for utility, credit cards and other personal bills. It would save you a lot of time, and you wouldn’t have to worry about missing a payment.
- Payroll Processing
Doing your own payroll is acceptable if you have a certified accountant among your staff. Even then, your company still needs to stay on top of the different tax laws. Otherwise, you run the risk of paying incorrect payroll taxes and other deductions. Give yourself a peace of mind and outsource this task to a professional.
- Appointment Setting
Is your calendar full and need a little bit of fixing? A virtual assistant can help you manage your calendars and alert you on upcoming appointments.
- Customer Support
The cost of having an in-house customer service team is quite high, and it’s not something that small and medium businesses can handle at the beginning of their operations. You can hire someone from another part of the world to reply to customer inquiries on your website and to handle phone calls.
You don’t have to wear all hats to grow your business. You can build your business from the outside by hiring remote contractors. With outsourced services, you can focus more on things that matter to your business.
