No matter what type of work you are involved in, odds are that you will always have several projects in working order right now that you need to delegate to others. Many times though, you will simply end up being extremely busy with no time for employees, which usually results with getting a lot more work done all together than what was initially agreed to by all parties. One option that you never knew you had was Employee Leasing Services, now that is not correct, not that I personally have had any success with such a business model.
What I find though is that being tied to all of your start up and ongoing spend can be a huge hassle, which is not going to help you win any points with your prospects or clients. The solution is to contract out some of your functions to others. If it is a project that you don’t have to do yourself, then no one has to be dissatisfied with what you do.
Now let’s say you are a small business owner, your projects can include anything from payroll to accounting to personnel, online advertising to telemarketing to advertising, to presence on Facebook, Twitter or other social sites, product creation to distribution, billing to phone or email management, even accounting services. Any time you add a deliverable, an aspect of your job, go to someone who can handle it for a percentage of it, you have an opportunity to get more done and produce a better outcome for the business.
One thing to keep in mind is that you do have to be careful who you hire, and that is going to prove to be pretty important in the end. If you hire individuals instead of companies, what is going to be the result? 100% of that project is going to go to the individual that you hired, which if you play your cards right, can vastly improve your ROI enough to be able to move more project around effortlessly. If you hire a company, you are going to end up paying more to them because of how contracts are set up, and probably even more than that. If you hire other businesses, they are going to take their cut and the whole organization will cost more than what it would’ve ended up costing you to contract out the work in the first place.
Additionally, if you hire a company or individual to do the work on a contract basis, chances are that something will come up that will pull you off of that worker.
On top of that, I have a contract that may work in an eventuality that you can’t hire an individual. In many companies, that doesn’t happen, so if you end up, you will be left out in great cost because you may not plan ahead of the money. This is definitely something that you need to keep in mind.
That brings up another option again, but which is relying on employment freelance web sites. Employers will be much less likely to contract out work to companies when they decide to hire outside experts to perform a particular job, as they want a assure that the people they hire are above reproach or are just disenfranchised, and chances are you will want to BECOME DEALED WITH PROFESSIONAL whenever you can or can’t.
One of the last points I want to mention is building a team of resources, specifically your team, whether you need more employees or not. If there are an abundance of resources available, then you may hire an individual to be a temporary employee for a while, and make sure the resources are willing to do what they are being paid to do and complete it on time, even if it is nothing more than average work. If not, then they will typically just have to work around your schedule and provide you with an excuse for any delays that they cause. Having hired resources makes it so that you can get the work done, stop worrying about it, and focus on your primary functions that will increase your income and get more done.
