I received an interesting question today.
“I'm taking your Outsource Weekly course, but I'm not new to Internet Marketing. I have a lot of courses and some of these Outsource Weekly lessons contain internet marketing basics. I'll hang in for awhile, though, to see if I am missing anything outside of outsourcing content.”
And here's my response…
There is a ton more to outsource beyond content.
For instance, I have almost 100 websites. For most of them, I don't touch customer support – I have helpers who deal with issues for me.
I also work with affiliate managers and graphics designers. I have people doing social networking, researching for me, recruiting JV partners. I have a tech guy who fixes my stuff, video editors, and audio editors, too. — (Geesh, I sound lazy now. lol.)
I also have cleaning ladies, a handyman, a pool service, and someone who cooks for me at times. — Now I sound *really* lazy. 😉 My time is money, and I don't want to spend all day sitting at a computer. Life's too short.
But, yes, there are basic intros on a lot of the marketing tasks in the Outsource Weekly course since we have such a mix of customers (beginners all the way to “gurus”). The course helps you to decide what to outsource as well as what to automate — and what to get rid of entirely.
I'm off to enjoy my Saturday. I hope you're doing the same. 🙂
There are many ways to tackle your outsourcing —
- Roadblocks vs. admin.
- Essential tasks verses new projects.
- Things you dislike vs. things you're not good at.
For me, I tend to look at the tasks that are being shoved to the end of my to do list repeatedly. There's usually a reason why they aren't getting done — so, I give them to someone to help!
