Ever felt like you are spinning too many plates as a business owner?
It happens to every owner!
About a year or so in your business just grows to a point where, all of a sudden, the work you thought you were doing has expanded.
Almost overnight you’re doing all sorts of tasks that are unrelated to your skillset, but that are essential in keeping your business alive.
In this blog we thought we’d take a look at 3 things you should be looking to outsource, in order to boost your business’ performance.
1. Accounting & Payroll
Not only is accounting difficult for most business owners, it’s also time consuming.
Money is one of the most important factors when it comes to running your business, you really can’t afford to mess this one up.
The perks of getting someone, like us, to do your accounting and payroll is that it will also help you to manage your money better.
You’ll begin to get the big picture of your financial information which can inform you on key business decisions like hiring a member of staff, or investing in a new piece of equipment.
Our advice as accountants (obviously) is that you outsource to an accountant and payroll provider as soon as possible to allow you to focus on your business.
… You might think we’re being biased, but this advice is pretty universal for a reason! We promise!
Administrative tasks are another thing that creeps into a business owners to do list.
It begins with a couple of queries here and there, a few email conversations every now and again, and before you know it you’re spending all your free time trying to get on top of all of the admin you have to do.
Virtual assistants are a clever way of outsourcing these types of tasks. They work remotely and ensure that all of your admin, calendar updates, and business phone calls are taken care of.
The downside with virtual assistants can be a lack of communication between you and them, however, the time you’ll be gaining back might be worth these little bumps in the road.
Perhaps you could also outsource to someone locally, who might be willing to work as self-employed on tasks like this.
3. Social Media & Digital Marketing
Deciding how big you want to grow your business will determine what you need when it comes to social media and digital marketing.
To start off with, we suggest outsourcing your social media channels to ensure that your pages are being kept up to date, relevant and active. This will set you apart from lots of other businesses that you are competing with.
When you’re really ready to start pushing towards digital marketing strategies that will help to bring customers in, you could outsource to start aiming bigger and focusing on more targeted strategies.
You might wonder whether having an online presence is worth it, but all of the studies show that not only is it the trend moving forward… it’s also extremely effective now.
