The Holiday Season comes with time constraint. There's never enough time to get things like website designing, copywriting, email content, graphics etc. That's where, outsourcing comes to the rescue!
Why Outsourcing is a Smart Option
Just like me most of you might dislike delegating tasks to outsiders and would prefer doing everything single handedly. Right?
But, there are couple of things that I learn't and would like to share about things that can go wrong if you choose to complete everything inhouse:
- You may not have the expertise, neither the man-force to complete each task in time.
- The quality of work will fall if you pile up things.
- It may take longer to complete compared to the time taken by a professional
- May cost you money in terms of hours.
How to get the BEST WORK done in LESS TIME?
Outsource. Outsource. Outsource.
A good tip : Choose to outsource things you don't have expertise in.
Work that can be outsourced:
- Graphic Designing
- Website Designing
- Blog/Sales Page Writing
To make things simpler for you, we've complied some of the top sites which provide freelancers. Go through the article, take your pick and outsource as much work as needed.
One of the fastest growing outsourcing websites, everything on Fiverr starts from $5
Fiverr lets freelancers submit their qualifications and pricing. You can browse through the freelancers profile and contact them via chat to initiate a discussion.
Thus unlike Upwork, you won't be bogged down with multiple freelancer quotes on Fiverr Saving you lot of project delegation time.
A very popular site that boasts writers, designers, accountants, consultants, mobile developers, and more. Document sharing, messaging, and payment are all taken care of within the platform. Freelancers here mostly work on per hour basis. All you need to do is make a spec of your project and post it. Freelancer will then immediately start contacting you.
Upwork is more suitable for larger projects like website designing, development, consultancy etc.
This site is filled with great graphic designers. It has a competition system in place that pits those designers against each other. To start your project, you tell the crowd what you want and within a few days you will have a range of designs submitted by a whole host of designers.
You can then rate designers, ask for revisions, and then eventually pick a winner.
Guru.com consists of freelancers ranging in various specialities like programming, graphic designing, writing etc. Just like Upwork, you need to post your requirement on Guru.
Guru.com then sends you a list of qualified “gurus” that fulfil the requirements you set for your project.
The choice is then up to you as to who to send invitations for quotes and who to ignore.
In this website, it’s simply a matter of submitting a proposal to a client and then waiting to hear back.
Each job comes with a specific number of proposals currently attached to it, ensuring that you won’t be bogged down by proposal.
Don't Waste Anymore Time, Go Outsource
These 5 sites are one of the best and most effective ones you can approach. I've used a few myself and they are truly a blessing.
