Every entrepreneur will tell you how complicated it can be to grow your business. While there are multiple paths to doing so, these will all have things to overcome. In most cases, a blend of different strategies can be recommended.

Seeing what has been effective for others and adapting these to your business’ needs will be vital. One strategy you could take advantage of is outsourcing. This is the process of hiring third parties to perform certain essential tasks.

That approach can offer several benefits. Some of the more notable of these include:

  • Allowing employees to focus on other duties, making them more productive.

  • Reducing your labor costs.

  • Eliminating employee-related expenses, such as insurance, taxes, and benefits.

Taking advantage of these fully will mean that you can grow your business. That’s especially true if you outsource certain areas. If you’re unsure of what these are, then you might be unsure of where to start.

Some tasks will be much more recommended than others, as they’ll better help you grow your business.

Areas Any Momtrepreneur Can Outsource To Grow Their Business

Payroll & Taxes

Unless you’re an accountant, you didn’t start your business to stare at columns full of numbers every day. Your payroll will need to be taken care of, however. You can outsource this to an accountancy firm or even a freelance bookkeeper.

Doing so will be much more affordable than having one in-house. Typically, you’ll only have to pay them monthly when they’ve performed certain tasks. Outside of this, you should also hire them to take care of your taxes.

There are several benefits to this, outside of saving yourself the time and money. It’ll also make sure that all of your financial obligations are met. After all, you wouldn’t want the authorities breathing down your neck because you filed your taxes incorrectly.

Receptionist Duties

Many companies think that they need to have an in-house receptionist. That isn’t the case, as a virtual receptionist can do most of the same things for a significantly reduced price. Most of the duties you’ll need them to oversee can be done entirely virtually.

The most notable of these are answering phone calls and emails, alongside making appointments. Does someone really need to be in the office to do this? It’s highly unlikely. Save yourself the payroll and other costs by outsourcing this to an outsourcing firm, such as Virtual Headquarters.

It’s worth noting that this mightn’t be an option for companies that have a lot of visitors. For everyone else, this can certainly be recommended.

Marketing

Marketing isn’t an area that companies can neglect. It’s also an area that many small businesses can’t afford to spend too much money on. Outsourcing this will be a balance between both worlds.

Not only will it be quite affordable, but it should ensure that your marketing efforts don’t go to waste. You’ll spend much less on having a professional oversee your marketing strategy. Coupled with this is the reduced waste that you should see.

As every outsourced marketing professional will have years of experience, they’ll be experts in making sure that your advertising budget is spent well. That’ll help you grow your business even more.

Help Desk

A receptionist isn’t the only person who’ll likely answer phones in an office. You might also have a help desk for customers to ring for product-related products. That help desk could be relatively expensive to operate. A lot of the time, this expense could go to waste, especially if customers need little assistance.

Outsourcing it will reduce this cost significantly. A call center could be the recommended approach. While you’ll need to work with them about how they should take to and help your customers, you’ll need to put in little effort after that.

These call centers should also offer high-quality customer service, which will enhance your efforts to grow your business.

Grow Your Business With Outsourcing: Wrapping Up

If you’re trying to grow your business with outsourcing, you’ll need to go about it the right way. Part of this involves doing so with the right areas. You’ll also need to work with the right company.

When you’re choosing the right outsourcing partner, you’ll need to consider a few things. Whether or not they’re a good fit for your needs will be the most important part of this. While you’ll want to focus on price, that shouldn’t be the first factor to consider.

Instead, consider the value proposition and if the outsourcing company or freelancer is worth it. With that, there shouldn’t be anything holding you back from working with a freelancer.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO...

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
