Everybody wants to have success - if he's running a long term business or if he's just newcomer on the market. And a lot of people make one significant mistake: they want to do everything alone. You may ask: "Why is this a mistake?" There are several reasons some of which I want to point out:
- your time is a very valuable source
We all have limited time - even if we are workaholics thinking three hours of sleep would be enough. So we should focus on our key tasks (and should not forget time for ourselves and our family).
- nobody is an expert in anything
Yes, you're good in your job. But there are specialists who can do things for you - while you focus on more important things
"So what is the solution?", you might ask "I can't employ a bunch of specialists..."
Well. That's not neccessary. The magic word is outsourcing.
Let's make an example to get it visual: Imagine you want to place a digital product and now you need a website (which means design, technique, SEO, ..). You might also need promotion-videos to be used on the website and an youtube (this means script, camera, light, cutting, effects, music, sound, ...). And you want to be international - so you need translation of all including the digital product.
Maybe you could do all of it. But how much time it would take you?
With outsourcing you can find freelancers to to it for you. And you will look for different people - each one doing one task. A web designer makes your webpage layout and design. A programmer makes the website technique with payment integration. A SEO professional makes your website be found. A social media guru helps you to get into facebook & co. Professional video team gets your videos done. And you use native speakers for your translation work...
Does this sound good so far? Good, but it comes even better: they all work parallel which saves your time until you can launch your product. And meanwhile you could focus on more important things as generating customers, new products, joint ventures, ...
One question remaing might be. "But that sounds so expensive... And where do I get those freelancers from?"
Believe me: This will be much cheaper than you think. You have the oppertunity to live in a global world. You act on a global market, which gives you not only access to more customers but also to an amazing source of freelancers who "are begging" that you give them a chance when you outsource your work.
And one of the largest worldwide outsourcing marketplaces is freelancer.com (you will not be surprised to read this name). On freelancer.com you will find millions of freelancer looking for jobs.
