What Can You Be Outsourcing to Free Up Your Time and Increase Your Productivity?

What opportunities could you be welcoming if you were outsourcing? How much more time and you have to do the things that you love? How much more productive would your company be if you outsourced to a genius?

As a solopreneur, you can only do so much by yourself. It is good to have a basic understanding of some of the processes and functions that you delegate so that you can give clear instruction to those you outsourced to.

Just because you know how to do something, it does not mean you should be doing it. I understand that initially you may need to as you generate revenue, however, there will come a time when you need to hire someone else to do the work so you can concentrate on what you do best.


 Here are 25 ways in which you could start outsourcing:

  1.  e-zine or newsletter formatting
  2. social media management
  3. market research
  4.  press releases
  5.  PowerPoint presentations
  6.  payroll
  7.  bookkeeping
  8.  graphic design
  9.  logo design
  10.  website building or maintenance
  11. video editing
  12.  article posting
  13.  book cover design
  14.  editing services
  15.  video production
  16.  transcription
  17.  legal advice
  18.  IT services
  19.  ghostwriting
  20.  postal services
  21.  grocery shopping
  22.  dry cleaning and laundry
  23.  housekeeping
  24.  lawn maintenance

Basically what it comes down to, how much do you value your time? time and energy are irreplaceable so choose to use it wisely to get your greatest return on your investment. You can make more money but you cannot buy more time or energy. Just think of the leverage and how much more you can get accomplished if you had a virtual team of people helping you any where in the world!

 By outsourcing, you can focus on revenue generating activities that grow your business and allow you to have more time and energy words the areas that are most important in your business and your life.

  1. Debra, this was a great article that I really need to pay attention to. I have not outsourced anything yet. I can be somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to some things. I know that I need to delegate and/or outsource more if I want my business to move to the next level. I would love to outsource grocery shopping since I really don’t like to do this.

      Great insight Adrienne! There are several people would love to do the shopping for you! Make the list and delegate so you can do what you enjoy most!

  2. Love to outsource what I can…and what I can afford. As my business grows, I can task out more. Thanks for the reinforcement that I am doing things right 🙂
