Taking the first step
You may feel like you need an interim step between the whole interviewing and hiring process, and outsourcing your work.
I totally fell you, and it’s how I transitioned into outsourcing the many elements of my business.
Below is a list of awesome platforms you can use to outsource one-off specific tasks. You might even find your person on these channels who will stick with you for the long-term!
List the job you need completing and receive competitive bids from freelancers within minutes. Awesome and quick way to find your perfect person for a job. Simples!
Designcrowd.com – for Graphic design, logos, flyers, web banners, etc.
Upwork – freelancers for everything! Sales and marketing, customer service, copy writers and more.
Fiverr – a bit of everything – similar to Upwork. Video, animation, photo retouching, programming, tech and anything else.
Virtual Valley – Virtual Assistants to help you do…you know…. whatever you need assistance with. Customer service, email management etc.
Freelancer.com – Similar again to Upwork and Fiverr. Whatever you need doing, they have people who can do it.
- Hand over mundane, process-driven or time-draining tasks
- Hire someone who is better and / or faster at doing what you do
