If you are working on several different projects, then you know that it can be impossible to do everything yourself, this is why you need to know how to outsource your article writing. Many people who are just starting out tend to think that they can get everything done on their own.
While I have to admit, I still do a lot of my work on my own, I am getting to the point where I am learning how to outsource, especially when it comes to writing articles for my PLR store.
Why You Need To Learn How To Outsource
As a business owner, the only way that you will continue to grow your online business is to learn how to outsource. However, choosing someone that you trust or can rely on can definitely be a challenge. The last thing that you want to do is hire someone from Elance, Odesk or even the Warrior Forum who promises to deliver the work that you hired them to do and then they never do.
I have outsourced to some people (not a lot, I am getting more into outsourcing though) and I have to admit, I have not experienced a lot of headaches. I do a lot of my outsourcing on the Warrior Forum. I have some tips that you can use if you are considering outsourcing.
Tips For Outsourcing Article Writing
I have only outsourced people to do article writing for some of my projects. While these tips work for me, you still need to find out what works best for you when it comes to hiring someone to help you build your online business.
Reviews: When searching for someone who can help you with your article writing, you can not always make your decision based on how many reviews they have. Some people who are just starting out to be ghost writers have not had the time to get their reviews built up. If you find someone that you think can help you out, you may want to give them a small amount of work to see what their writing style is. This will help you determine if you can give them a bigger project.
Ask Others: Go to the Warrior Forum and ask around if someone knows a good article writer. Many people there will be happy to provide you with some outsourcers they may have used before. When you find someone that you want to use, try to keep them busy. If you are able to keep giving them work, chances are they will provide you with some discounts or coupons you can use to order more articles from them.
Find Someone Affordable: If you are just starting out, then you most likely do not have a lot of money to grow your business. When you start looking for someone to write articles for you, the going rate is going to be around $1.00 for a hundred words. So if you need a 500 word article, you can expect to pay $5.00. Yes, you can find cheaper article writers, but the quality of the article will diminish.
Just Go For It: You don’t have to place a big order, you just have to get a job outsourced, so you can start focusing on expanding your business. Remember, if you are trying to grow your business, you have to start outsourcing.
When To Outsource?
I know that when people first get started online, they don’t have a lot of money to invest in growing their business. I have to admit, I have always done things by myself because I did not want to spend the money on outsourcing. However, now when I make money flipping websites, I take that money and re-invest it into growing my PLR store. I am also starting to use that money and invest it into growing the second project I am working which is a Pre-Made Niche Blogs.
I know that letting go of some of the tasks in growing your business can be difficult. But you can’t ever grow to the extent you want to grow if you continue doing everything yourself. If you need a header done and do not have the funds to pay an expensive graphic designer, go to Fiverr and get one done for $5. Don’t think for an instance that you have to pay a lot of money to get things done. As a matter of fact, the header I have on this site was done at Fiverr and I have to admit I like it.
Many people have a big fear of getting started online because they think that they have to be good at everything. The truth is that you do not have to be an expert in everything. If you don’t know how to do something, there is someone that you can pay to help you out. If you are not sure how to do something or if you have a project that you are working on, and it is keeping you from working on something else, hire it out.
That is the only way that you will ever grow. Sure, we can’t outsource everything and the last thing that you want to do is start outsourcing out a bunch of projects if you don’t know for sure if they are going to be profitable.
The point I am trying to make, is if you don’t want to spend 6-7 hours sitting in front of your computer and waking up dreading having to work on so many things at once, it is time to begin outsourcing. Give it a try, you will be amazed at how much more you can accomplish without having to do all the work by yourself.
