Let’s be real – you can’t be good at everything! Maybe you’ve read ten marketing books but still feel like every Google update could just as well be written in Chinese. Maybe you spend long evenings trying to make sure your paperwork is correct, muttering under your breath. If that’s the case, you might need to take a look at outsourcing some of your tasks.
Outsourcing your work can free up time in your schedule and can often have tons of positive effects on your company. Read along for three parts of your business that you could consider outsourcing.
Outsource your financials
Being on top of your financials can take a lot of time. There’s just so much you need to keep in mind! Luckily, there’s a lot you can outsource. You can for instance outsource everything about your taxes or choose to outsource your invoices to a company that checks whether the bills are paid in time. Often, these companies work along closely with debt collection agencies (Dutch: incassobureau) that will collect (Dutch: incasso) outstanding debts. You can also hire a collection agency on your own if you’re fine with taking care of your own financials, but not too fond of having to stalk debtors. To find a good agency, just Google your area to see which collection agencies have good reviews! If you for instance live in Groningen, Google ‘incassobureau Groningen’.
Outsource your IT upkeep
Everything’s fine and dandy when your IT just … works. But what if your laptop keeps crashing, your software has a bug or your data gets stolen? To make sure your company is fully protected and fully operational at all times, it’s a good idea to work with a system administrator that ensures the correct functioning of all your computer systems and networks.
Outsource your online marketing
The online marketing world is a fast-paced world. Every brand “fights” over the top positions in Google and the ads that show up the highest on every page. If you don’t have a lot of knowledge of online marketing, you might notice that it’s really hard to market your brand. Maybe you can’t seem to reach top 10 with your major landing pages or you overpay for clicks on your ads. In that case, there are two things you can do: learn everything about online marketing yourself or outsource work to a marketing agency. Best believe your competitors are working together with agencies as well! A marketing agency can help you set up a SEO strategy for your website and can optimize your ads, so the conversions come flowing in.
