Outsourcing is the practice of handing over tasks for your business. Ones that are not your area of expertise or that you may not enjoy doing. It allows you to make room in your day and create growth in your business. By outsourcing you save not only time, but money and resources to train or learn these skills. You can outsource in every area of your business from social media management to finances and everything in between. There are virtual assistants available that have set skills and experience for every task.
When outsourcing you will see many benefits in your business and I’ve listed some of them below.
Allows you to concentrate on your areas of expertise
By outsourcing it generates time for you to focus on your area of expertise. It creates space, time for you and your team to work on other areas. It removes the stress and worry of learning how to do this task or spending hours doing it, when you could be generating income by focusing on what you are passionate about and establishing new leads. Going back to doing what you love when you started your business in the beginning. Not to be doing tasks that make you feel overwhelmed and exhausted.
When you outsource tasks, you’ll see an increase in business as you will have more time to gain new clients. Your to-do list will be completed promptly without the stress of finding the time to complete the tasks you don’t need to do. This will create more space in your schedule to get out there networking and growing your business.
Outsourcing tasks to a virtual assistant will save you operating costs, as the contractor does not need to be in your office using power, office supplies and utilities. Money can also be saved in sick days, annual leave and superannuation, as these are not required when hiring a contractor. Contractors generally charge out on an hourly rate or a monthly retainer. You will be able to set the hours and be on top of your finances.
When outsourcing rather than employing staff, you will notice that the contractor is more engaged and efficient, as they are trained to work remotely, are highly regarded for their communication and do not have the same distractions as if they were working in a team office environment.
Increase in positive mental health
By having more time and space to focus on what you love doing within your business you will see a huge increase in your mental health, as you are not stressing about having to learn and complete tasks that you don’t want to. You will be completing tasks that bring out the best in you and create that sense of fulfillment, bringing you that reminder of why you started your business. It will produce an overall change in attitude and job satisfaction.
Access to more talent
With outsourcing you will be able to hire all over Australia, as they do not need to be in your city. This opens up the talent of the candidates that you will have access to. You’ll be able to find someone that has all the skills that you need, rather than settling for someone that needs to be trained to gain the knowledge.
