Outsourcing is the logical progression as you build and market your business. It is a way to save time by hiring others to do tasks that you may not be willing to, are not trained to do, or for other reasons. You might not have enough time to do certain tasks, especially if you are working alone without the support of a team of employees. That is when Outsourcing can be a viable option for any business.
When searching for outsourcing companies, you must always remember that you get what you pay for. Trying to do everything cheaply can incur a whole variety of problems for a business owner.
Never Buy Likes, Shares, or Links
This is why the recommended use of outsourcing is that it should never be for marketing purposes. If you are purchasing likes, shares, or links, you run the risk of being banned by Social Media providers like Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. These strategies usually only drive fake traffic to your website. This is traffic that has little or no benefit to your business. Thus, you should avoid providers that guarantee positive results.
With FIVERR, you should be hiring providers with expertise and experience that have both high ratings and good reviews. But, you should only use them to tweak website problems or create videos or images. This could be very beneficial and inexpensive for you and your business. The goal should always be to save you time and add quality to your website or landing pages. But again, you run the risk of being banned if you are buying likes, shares, or links.
Upwork and 9 Design
Other outsourcing companies to consider are Upwork and 99Design. Typically, they have better workers and you get what you pay for as they do charge higher prices. But always do your due diligence when preparing to outsource your work. Fiverr is the cheapest option and is a good starting point for a new business on a tight budget.
This post just scratches the surface of outsourcing. There are many outsourcing pros and cons. I hope you realize that there is a right way and a wrong way to go about outsourcing work for your business. Do your homework before outsourcing to avoid the trap of getting band from social media.
