How to Outsource Tasks in Your Business With a Small Budget

If you listen to the experts advice when it comes to outsourcing tasks, it’s that you should start before you think you’re ready.

But like Kyla, a freedom fighter from this community said, it’s hard to commit the funds to building a team when you don’t have a big income, and I appreciate this can feel like a huge leap and a big investment.

However…one thing I love about outsourcing is that it’s not as expensive as you’d think and the sooner you do it, the more money you’ll save!

I certainly did not build my 7-person team overnight (nor could I immediately afford them when I first started hiring), so nobody expects you to either.

That’s why I really want you to watch this video to see how you can get started today, even if you only have a small budget.

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • The two best websites for hiring team members
  • The best way to list an open position within your budget
  • How to decide which tasks you want to outsource

    This is great Natalie, I totally agree. I used Odesk at my SEO company a few years back and so when I started to build my blog, I went straight back there. Now I’ve just set the blog live and I already have a VA/wordpress team member, and another guy ready to start for the upcoming podcasts and videos. One strategy I can recommend is using Odesk to outsource your client work first, so you have margin to absorb any freelancer issues. Then just tacking on a couple of extra hours for you to get a few of your own tasks done – it’ll ease you into having a VA and if it doesn’t work out with them, you don’t really lose anything. I did this with my first client and it’s worked out great.

    Thanks Natalie. In New Zealand where over 90% of businesses are small
    businesses, outsourcing is very common. I have recently launched a
    services business called The Selective that helps connect companies with
    senior level creative and marketing expertise. It follows the outsource
    model, with a twist. In addition to outsourcing a project to a
    particular specialist clients have access to a team of creative
    professionals who can work collaboratively or individually depending on
    the client’s requirements and project scope. The real benefit is that
    companies have direct access to top marketing and creative talent on a
    job-by-job basis without any ongoing commitment or overheads.

    The model works well regardless of the size of the company as we have the ability to scale quickly. So far the new business model has been well received.

  • Hi Natalie great video about outsourcing. I totally agree that you can’t do everything by yourself and by surrounding yourself with a good team will yield faster results. BTW great video quality, editing and sound
