When I Should Outsource My Internet Marketing?

8 replies
We all experience this problem in internet marketing at some time or another. The problem is not enough time to get everything done. We all have the same 24 hours in a day to work with and only a fraction should be spent on your business. The rest is for sleeping, eating, spending time with others, and for beginners to this, a main job.

    When should you? Whenever you feel you can afford to outsource it and no longer have the time to accomplish your important tasks.

    Outsource your work as soon as possible. Make any kind of budget cut you can to hire a virtual assistant to do rudimentary data entry. Train them to install a WordPress site using one of your hosting accounts so they can learn to solve problems on their own. Laying off my VA in November was the worst mistake I ever made. Once you are earning close to 5k/month you have no excuse not to be able to budget 300-400/month for a VA in the Phillipines. You will sleep better at night knowing work is getting done while you are sleeping.

    Start outsourcing when you can afford it and when you believe that you will make back the money you are paying on outsourcing. You will also want to consider how much you are happy to outsource and how much you are really fussy about and are better off doing it yourself - sorry that's just a problem I have when I outsource I'm often too fussy to be happy with the result

    Outsource whenever you feel comfortable doing so.

    I majored in English and Psychology in college, so I'll outsource just about everything but my sales copy.

    I outsourced from day one...there's no way I could learn how to do everything. I wanted to get a site up fast so the things I didn't know how to do and didn't want to learn, I outsourced. I think the sooner the better cause it can't be easy to do it allll yourself!

    ps - Odesk.com is my fav!!

    I'd say to outsource as soon as you can afford it, but you should also only do it after you have at least a rudimentary understanding of the tasks that you want to outsource. Otherwise, it'd be a little difficult to assess, evaluate and manage/direct your workers, as it'd be kind of like the blind leading the blind!
