You’ve done an amazing job of growing your business and you’ve hit the point where you either stay where you are or you grow. Both seem scary right? Staying where you are would be easy to do but it’s giving up on part of your dream.
Growing is what you truly want but as you wear so many hats it becomes more challenging to handle everything on your own. You may find yourself spending more time on admin tasks and less time on the activities that drive your business. You might also have some ideas that you’d love to get off the ground but you just have no clue how to.
At this point, you might think the only option for help is to hire an employee to help you out. But, that comes with significant costs, risks, and responsibilities. You could consider outsourcing instead…
When you hire an employee, you not only pay their salary, but also their benefits, taxes, and other overhead costs. These costs can add up quickly, especially for a small business. Outsourcing, on the other hand, allows you to pay only for the services you need. You can hire a virtual assistant on an as-needed basis, and you don’t have to worry about paying for their benefits or overhead costs.
Outsourcing provides small business owners with flexibility. You can hire a virtual assistant for a specific project or a specific period, depending on your needs. If your business experiences a slow period, you can reduce or stop outsourcing, whereas if you hire an employee, you have to keep paying them even if there is no work to be done.
When you hire an employee, you may have to invest in training to ensure that they have the skills and knowledge to do their job effectively. However, outsourcing allows you to access skills that you may not have in-house. For example, if you need help with social media marketing, you can hire a virtual assistant who specializes in that area, rather than training your employee to do it.
Reduced Risks and Responsibilities
When you hire an employee, you assume significant risks and responsibilities. You have to ensure that they are legally authorized to work, comply with employment laws and regulations, and provide a safe working environment. Outsourcing eliminates these risks and responsibilities since the virtual assistant is responsible for their own taxes, insurance, and other legal requirements.
More Time for What You’re Good At
Outsourcing tasks allows you, the small business owner, to focus on the activities that drive your business. By outsourcing tasks such as lead magnets, email marketing, social media management, and customer service, you can spend more time on product development, sales, and what you’re best at. This can lead to increased productivity and revenue.
Have More Fun
Outsourcing can also help small business owners have more fun. By delegating tasks to a virtual assistant, you can reduce your workload and stress levels. This can allow you to enjoy your business and create the life you dreamt of instead of panicking about who can do what for you.
Outsourcing is a cost-effective, flexible, and low-risk alternative to hiring for small business owners. By outsourcing to a virtual assistant,you can focus on the activities that drive your business, get better balance and have more fun.
I’d love to help you get back to the balance and give your business the boost it needs.
