Building a successful website or blog is a massive job and when you reach a certain stage it will be time to outsource work to others. The problem is many bloggers never know when it is time to outsource website jobs and struggle to keep the ball rolling, so to speak.
If you do not outsource certain blogging jobs then the whole process of building a successful website can become overwhelming. You can only do so much with one person working so here are a few tips to show you why outsourcing is important for blog growth.
If You Have Money to Spare
If you have money to spare right now, outsourcing is the best investment you can make for your website. You know the saying, “many hands make light work”, well this is not only true but many hands also build businesses quicker.
If you have money to invest in your business even before it starts to make its own money, not spending a cent would be a crime and a definite setback.
When You Are Making Money
Running a website or blog is a business so when you make money you should reinvest a certain amount back into the business to ensure growth. Many Webmasters start a website for under $100 and continue at that pace, trying not to invest too much money. This will ensure that your website has a slow and low growth rate, whereas reinvesting the money that you have made on outsourcing will see profits faster.
Wasting Time on Really Easy Tasks
Sometimes a Webmasters time is unfortunately spent on menial tasks that are devastatingly boring. These tasks should definitely be outsourced because you will not last long in the game if you keep doing something you hate. Outsource these tasks as soon as you can and focus on the blogging jobs that you enjoy.
When You Find Someone Good
When I find a person that can do a great job for me, I try to keep them working steadily for as long as I can. This is because people often move on to other jobs, get poached by another Webmasters, or maybe even start their own online project.
For example I have hundreds of well written articles that I have bought when my writers had time to work. Some of my best writers have moved on and that was very sad to me but I still have a stock of articles to keep me going. Now I have time to find another writer to replace the one I lost.
Access to Skills You Do Not Have
I have a personal assistant that can show me a thing or two and here I was thinking that I was the only person that knew everything about this business. (Yeah right) I admit that I was guilty of thinking that no one else cares about my business and that no one could do a better job than me. That was because I had not found the right people to hire.
With a bit of trial and error, I found some fantastic people that were willing to help me build my business.
There Are Not Enough Hours in the Day
This is a totally obvious reason. When there are not enough hours in the day for the jobs that you need to do, you need to outsource these jobs. Unfortunately Webmasters just struggle along and again, this is when it becomes too much and they give up blogging.
Unless you are wonder woman or Superman, outsourcing is extremely important for your website growth. I preferred not to try to be someone that I’m not and outsourcing has definitely helped me build a fantastic business that I could not have done by myself.
