Outsourcing simply means to pay someone else to do the work you want done. When creating websites and content , outsourcing really benefits affiliate marketing by freeing up your time so you can work on whatever it is you are best at.
Perhaps you need a logo designed for a new website, or want to add a whole bunch of new content to your site in quick time, then outsourcing the work really makes good business sense.
What Can Be Outsourced
Anything, really. With the internet you can practically find anyone to do anything you need when it comes to websites, content, programming. In fact, the works. And the great thing about outsourcing is this: The market out there is highly competitive, so often you can get real quality work from freelancers at close to bargain prices.
Here’s a brief list of just some of the things that can be outsourced:
- Writing (website content, eBooks, squeeze pages, lead magnets)
- Computer Programming
- Website Design
- Graphic Design (logos, images, drawings, banner ads)
- Photoshop Processing
- Buying Traffic
- Online Marketing
- Video Production
- Music and Audio
- Business Plans
- Translation Services
- Book Covers
The list goes on and on…..
Choose A Prospective Worker Carefully
Some of this will be trial and error. Plus, we all like different things and our expectations of quality and output vary from person to person. However, some people you outsource work to are naturally going to be more competent than others. Some will also be way more experienced than others, though these people will generally charge more than a newbie trying to get some runs on the board.
The majority of people you outsource work to can be found on various freelance sites, and most freelance and outsourcing sites will allow customers to offer reviews and ratings of the service they received. It’s best to choose a gig that has at least some positive feedback, and the more the better. I’m not saying never take a chance on someone who is new, as everyone had to start somewhere and be given a go, but for the most part target those with reviews and obvious experience.
Also ask for samples of their previous work so you can assess the style and quality. Style is just as important as anything else, as you want to team up with someone who connects with and understands what you want, as well as having a style that complements your website or project.
Fiverr For Outsourcing
There are many places where you can find people to outsource your work too, whether it be freelance sites or individuals, but one of the most popular ones is Fiverr.
The concept behind Fiverr was that all the ‘gigs’ on there cost $5. While there are still some gigs you can get done for $5, usually you will need to pay a bit more for jobs of quality and that require more work.
You can pretty much get anything done of Fiverr, all of what was mentioned earlier plus loads more. I’ve used Fiverr a number of times for various gigs. Sometimes I just want some quick output of fresh content on my websites. While I haven’t been satisfied with every single thing I’ve had done through somebody on Fiverr, for the most part I’ve been quite happy with the results.
Maybe you’re not interested in outsourcing work, but would rather sell your services on Fiverr yourself. Setting up a seller account is very straightforward. All Fiverr do is take a small percentage of any money you make from the site. Their fee is quite fair and reasonable for the amount of exposure you get. Apart from the fee Fiverr take from each sale, it costs nothing to set up and maintain a seller account on the site.
Sometimes it can cost as little as a few dollars to outsource some work, so if you feel you have too much to handle, don’t have the expertise to do something yourself, or simply want to increase your business output, then it makes perfect sense to outsource some work. It’s like having employees on call that you can delegate tasks to whenever you want, day or night, all year long.
Outsourcing is the perfect business solution.
