Easiest Method to Outsource...?

2 replies
I just finished reading the book Work The System by Sam Carpenter, and it has peaked my interest in starting an actual IM business via outsourcing and managing tasks rather than trying to do them all myself.

Here are my question(s):

What methods/services do you think are easiest to outsource?
What type of business would you recommend starting via these easy to outsource services?

I am thinking about doing an offline method and outsourcing all the article writing and SEO services for each client...but I have heard of a lot of people that will outsource stuff for their own needs ie rank their own affiliate page.

I'm just interested how people are using outsourcing in their IM businesses today.

    Hello Woody, I agree, outsourcing is a great way to grow your business and make money as well. Here is what I did.

    Discover all of the thorns in the sides that marketers face with their internet business

    You may be wondering what the heck I'm talking about? Well, some thorns that I would gladly remove as oppose to stick with include:
    • Content creation
    • Article distribution
    • Manual social bookmarking (manual for higher efficiently)
    • Manual social media submissions
    • Press release distributions
    • Classified ads marketing
    • Blog commenting (thought provoking posts)
    • Twitter marketing
    • Social networking marketing
    • Etc, etc.

    That should give you some ideas to spin off, try and think about a business plan and post it for discussion when you're ready!

    Grab a few people from Best Jobs Philippines :: Philippine job search, job bank, employment and recruitment

    You'll find experienced people for $200/month, but you'll need to train and work with them. You cant just say 'go link build this' or 'go write about that'.

    It's best if you give them kind of a 'how to' guide, or make a video showing how you like it done with examples of the work they're expected to produce.

    A bit of management is also required to keep them working and producing stuff in a reasonable time.

    A great starting point would be link building, article writing, and article submission. If you've bought a WSO or other course on how to do these things try giving them that as a starting point.

    Hope that helps someone It's what's worked for me
