Creative Solutions | Outsourcing, Why Do It?
Outsourcing: obtain (goods or a service) from an outside or foreign supplier, especially in place of an internal source.
Outsourcing is a word that a lot of business owners try to avoid for several reasons! One, being that they believe doing it themselves will be more affective since they know their business from the inside, out. Another is because of spending extra money, and the last one is because business owners feel as though they lose all control over their social media and their growth online.
We’re here to tell you, that these speculations aren’t true! When we created this company, we had the entrepreneur in mind. The business owner who will work 70+ hours a week to become successful. The small business owner who is consistently on their phone. The working mom who barely has time to spend with her family due to tedious tasks, such as social media, blogging, and client relation management!
As a small business, we get it! The money, the “loss of power” we get it all. But guess what? You’re not wasting money, you’re investing in your company. You’re not losing power, you’re simply handing over your own content, and allowing us to create magical copy for your gorgeous posts! So get that out of your mind right now! In today’s blog post, we will be sharing our top 3 reasons why outsourcing isn’t so scary after all…
It’ll save you time.
Outsourcing will not only save you time, but it will also save you headaches after headaches, trying to do something that you despise! I know some business owners actually love keeping up with their social media, but raise your hand if you’re in that small percentage? Yeah… that’s what we thought! This goes back to creating time for your family. For your friends… for that extra time with your hot coffee in the morning reading a book! Who wouldn’t want that time? Not to get super deep… but life is short. Do you want to spend it posting about your new ceramic mug? Or do you want to make another one to sell? #Priorities people. Handing the baton over to a company that does this for a living, is never a bad idea! Give it a month without thinking about posting on your social media platforms, and you tell us how that felt.
It’ll help you grow.
Going back to my ceramic mug example, because I’ve always wanted to create one… If you’re into selling your beautiful dishes that you’ve created by hand, don’t you want to focus on growing your business that way? Isn’t it important to keep up with the production rather than posting about it? What if you had someone posting for you, at the proper time, with the best hashtags? That would make your life easier, wouldn’t it? Without worrying about what others are doing on social media, you’ll be able to grow your business in a unique way.
WE do it!
I know this isn’t a reason to do something, because peer pressure is never ok… but WE outsource! The company that is persuading YOU to outsource… outsources! I know, weird concept right? But that’s because we take our own advice and truly believe in making time for other things. Our clients, our families, and even traveling!
Outsourcing can make your company grow, it can create new relationships, and best of all, it will allow you to have more time. Who doesn’t want that?!
