You have probably heard it before, “Don’t try to take on everything and don’t be afraid to outsource.” Understanding what it means to outsource some of your work can save you a lot of time, stress and even help to save some of your current client base.
Outsourcing has developed a negative connotation as people relate it to the idea of jobs being outsourced to foreign countries. This is really ‘offshoring’, which is getting cheaper work from other countries. Luckily, outsourcing can be done locally and can help individuals develop their small businesses right here in your own town. Did you know that over 30% of companies are expected to increase their outsourcing?
Before starting your research on where to outsource, ask yourself some important questions:
- Why are you considering the option of outsourcing?
- Is there anyone internally that we could train to handle these tasks?
- Is this current service a necessity to run your company effectively and efficiently?
- How much of the work are you actually needing to outsource?
- What are the primary objectives for outsourcing
It’s important to look through your priorities and be able to measure them. This will help you to decide if outsourcing is the right option for you and your company. When it’s time to select your outsourcer, make sure to do your research and talk to people who have worked with these particular outsourcers. In the age of the internet world, there are hundreds of companies and individuals out there that will say anything to ‘close the deal’ when, in fact, they don’t have the actual means to handle the work they are promising you.
