If you often find that you are overwhelmed by the amount of tasks you need to complete on a daily basis, so that you can get your online income business moving steadily forward there is a way to overcome this feeling of overwhelm and that is by outsourcing some of the tasks.
In this article we will discuss just one of these outsourcing tasks and that it the task of getting web content to your site on a regular basis. This is a fairly easy task to outsource as there are some great websites such as Elance.com where you can post your job requirements and get bids from a variety of freelance writers who specialize in writing web content.
If you have never outsourced before and feel a little nervous about trying it then just think of it as you would if you hired someone to mow your lawn or wash your car. That also is a form of outsourcing jobs that you are either unwilling to do or lack the time to do yourself. It is merely a matter of applying the same principals to your online income business; it just means that as the boss you don’t have to wear all the hats yourself.
Before you actually hire someone to do the content writing for your website, there are some things that you will need to check.
- Is the person you are considering hiring able to write fluent and grammatically correct English? You may be wasting your money if they are unable to do this as the last thing that you want to have happen is that you will appear not only unprofessional but also illiterate. If your website is filled with this type of content then that is exactly how you will appear.
- When looking for possible candidates be sure to check their profiles as well as a sample of their work so that you can quickly asses the quality of their English and the type of work that you can expect from them. You need to know that your instruction to them with regard to the kind of content you require them to write will be followed and you also need to know how efficient their service will be.
If possible try and get some references as well. If they are unable to supply any of the information that you have asked for then it might be a good idea to look for somebody else.
Most outsourcing sites will include feedback about the freelancers who are registered with them. This will also give you an indication of how many jobs they have fulfilled and the sort of time frame it involved.
- Check if there was any sort of negative feedback on the work that they have previously done!
- Once you have selected a freelancer you feel you would like to work with then you need to set a deadline on the timeframe that the work is to be completed in. If they cannot meet your deadline then it is pointless to employ that person as you will finish up being totally frustrated at not getting the service you want.
It is possible to find someone to write your web content for your online business and so long as you follow these recommended guidelines and find a competent freelancer who is able to complete the tasks you require in a reasonable time, your life will become easier as the time that would normally be taken up with writing the content yourself can now be used in other business building ways to move your online business forward towards a successful future.
