We cut costs. 5 opportunities for outsourcing in your business

For smaller businesses with even smaller budgets, many websites can help fill staffing gaps caused by the inability to hire a full-time employee. Currently, one can come across the term “crowdsourcing”, this is like an online auction, only for freelancers. With this outsourcing, you will significantly reduce the costs of your business.

Crowdsourcing (Crowdsourcing) allows business owners to post their projects online and place a certain rate on them. In the online community of freelancers, there is a kind of rivalry for the submitted projects, and if there are several people interested in the same project, bargaining begins between the freelancers.

Such competition is enough for the cost of crowdsourcing services to remain low. But there are other costs, such as pension contributions, rental of premises and equipment, which you save by outsourcing. For example, you do not need to hold a telephone line and the Internet for those who work for you from their home. The same is true of health insurance or pension contributions.

Of course, you can hire a freelancer only for certain types of tasks, especially those for which you do not need to be directly in the office: accounting, marketing, and so on. After all, a freelancer cannot work with a customer manager, as he communicates directly with your customers, which means that he should stay in the office.

Here are five opportunities for outsourcing in your business:

Website creation and development
Of course, you can create a template site for a small fee. But for more advanced websites that would attract customers, you need to have some technical skills. Or, at the very least, have a budget sufficient to hire specialists who know what to do and how. In the absence of both the first and second, the cheapest alternative to maintain your website is outsourcing.

Marketing and Public Relations
Can’t afford annually a tidy sum for a PR-boxer? Crowdsourcing sites are crowded with freelancers who have experience working with the media, experience in promoting brands and even selling goods directly. You have the opportunity to check their track records by reading reviews from previous employers.

Research and organization
If you value your time, then it will be very profitable for you to hire someone to carry out onerous research projects, such as tracking the best prices for printer toner or collecting information about your competitors. Freelancers help you save money by keeping track of your schedule for sending promotional newsletters, congratulating regular customers, and generally filtering your company’s email inbox.

Custom content and design
Perhaps your company needs a blog or a new logo. Crowdsourcing will come to the aid of the budget of your business. You save by hiring freelance writers and graphic designers.

Professional Services
Who told you that you need to spend a lot of money on maintaining a lawyer just to make an ordinary contract? Or should you keep a certified public accountant to put your reports in order? You can easily find professional legal or accounting one-time assistance in matters such as patents and trademarks, contracts and reports.
