What YOU Have To Do Or What Has To Be DONE
When you start your adventure on the internet by starting your own online business, you almost inevitably assume that you have to do everything yourself.
There’s content writing, website design, link building, interacting on social networks, participating on related forums, doing research for finding suitable websites for link exchanges and the list goes on and on.
While I personally recommend that you start doing everything yourself at the beginning (to better understand how this Internet thing works), you don’t have to stay stuck in this “mode”.
Instead of thinking “what you have to do”, you should start thinking “what needs to be done” – and what can you outsource.
Almost everything can be done by others; content writing, website design, link building (I don’t have good experiences though), blog commenting, doing research and much more.
If you want to run a successful business, you need to become the manager. You need to manage the whole operation and let the workers do the simple jobs.
I’ve written about outsourcing before so this post is not really about how to outsource, but it’s more about the mindset and how I suggest it changes after a while so that you can get more done in shorter amount of time.
I started to think like that when I started my second SBI site and slowly progressed from just outsourcing content to outsourcing all sorts of tasks – like website design, blog commenting, research about potential link partners and so on.
I’ve even outsourced publishing of articles on a couple of blogs where I created an Author account on a WordPress based blog so my writer now writes the articles and publishes them and I only take care of an occasional link exchange.
The only thing that you as a manager need to constantly monitor is the quality of work.
“Employees” will always look for shortcuts and look for paths of least resistance. You as a “boss” of your company need to check that the quality is not compromised.
There are crappy websites everywhere (example: jacklalannepowerjuicerinfo dot com) and you need to differentiate from them in terms of quality and that’s how you’ll dominate your niches.
