Is Your Business Ready to Outsource?

For your business to grow to the next level you need to start looking at outsourcing certain tasks.  Or you might be finding your work load overwhelming and you need help to get back on top of things.  For some business owners the thought of outsourcing certain tasks can be very daunting, especially if you don’t know where to start looking for the right help.

Lets look at what tasks you can outsource:

* Admin
* Bookkeeping
* Reception
* IT
* Printing
* Social Media

Once you know which tasks you want to start outsourcing, then the next step is to find the right people to take care of these tasks for you.  When you are ready to put the word out that you need help, it won’t take long before you have a list of names and numbers to contact.

Where do you find these people to help you?
If you have a regular networking group you attend check if someone from that group can help you, if not someone in your networking group might know someone who can.  Ask on your social media platforms, you are guaranteed to get a good response on there.

Now that you have a good list of contacts to help you with your tasks, what is holding you back from contacting them?  For some business owners it can be hard to let go of certain tasks, especially when you have built your business from scratch.  This is your baby and to let other people take over the tasks you have been doing from the start can be tough.

Let’s have a look at some concerns business owners can have:

* Will the tasks/s be done at the same high standard as I do them?
* Will the task/s be done on time?
* Will they treat my clients respectfully and go that extra mile?
* Will they represent my business professionally?
* Will they let me down? ie not complete the job or take clients from me?

To help you over come these concerns, take baby steps, give the person a small task to start off with, you will get to see how they operate, once you are happy with how they handle this first task, then slowly give them more tasks.

Don’t struggle doing business alone, there are so many services out there now that can help you and your business grow and get thru the busy periods.
