Today’s tips are for those who are ready to take their business to the next level. It’s not for everyone, I will admit that…but if you’re not ready yet no worries. If you keep working your butt off you will be and sooner than you think.
What I want to talk about today is something that people in this industry don’t do enough of. I’m talking about outsourcing.
Outsourcing is a great way for you to a) get more done in your business b)free yourself up to do the things that YOU are good at c) a great way to leverage an already leveraged business.
Now you may be wondering what sorts of things that you can outsource, and that’s a good question. After all, MLM is supposed to be about going out, talking to people about your business opportunity, sitting down with them and going over the details, and then signing them up right?
Well these days with the internet, your online activities can easily take up a ton of your time. If you’re truly doing MLM using internet marketing tactics, then you’ve got your hands full.
You’re building websites and blogs, writing content, building a list of prospects, back linking, social networking, and the list goes on and on. It’s an unlimited cornucopia of tactics that you may be involved in.
So you find yourself at the end of your day wishing that you could have gotten to one thing, but couldn’t because you were doing another. And very often this slows down your progress because these things are all intertwined.
For instance it’s great if you have a website or blog, but if you’re not adding content or getting backlinks, then you may not be getting visitors anyway.
MLM Tips on How to Start Outsourcing at Your Pace
So more than likely you’re not ready to go full force yet when it comes to outsourcing. But there are probably some tasks that you either don’t like doing, or are not as good at as someone else might be. Maybe you can do it, but it takes you five times as long.
Well those would be the places to start with outsourcing.
For instance if creating a website isn’t your cup of tea, but you like to have a lot of mini-sites out there hosting your content, or acting as lead capture pages…then that might very well be the best place for you to start your outsourcing. Just imagine how much of your time that will free up. You can simply find a webmaster, and have them put together the package for you, and you monitor the progress. Easy peasy!!
How about writing content? If writing content isn’t your thing, then you’re better off hiring someone to write it for you. Chances are that if you hire a good writer who understands SEO and conversion, you’ll begin getting more leads, and convert more of those leads into buyers.
You can even outsource someone to make your calls to your prospects for you. Perhaps you enjoy all the things, or are good at all of the things that get you the leads online, but you’re terrible on the phone. Well you could hire a sells professional, offer them a fee of half of whatever your fast start bonus is, or first month’s commission is, and let them do the closing for you. You’ll end up making much more money in the long run by letting them use their strengths while you use yours.
MLM Tips About Where to Find Outsourcers
There are many places to find outsourcers now. There are tons of people looking for who have amazing skills but just can’t find the work. So you can run an ad in the newspaper, Craigslist, etc. where job seekers will find your ad and respond.
Or if you want you can go to places like Elance, Guru.com, Freelancer.com, etc. and find the people who are pooled together looking for exactly that kind of work. Or even at the WarriorForum.com in the “warriors for hire” section.
Here’s a tip… Know a kid in high school or college? Most kids these days know how to build websites amazingly. The great part is that they’ll work for gas money, so you can get good work done and rock bottom prices, and then simply groom them toward your business. And when you have a longtime freelancer working for you, where they understand your business and what you’re looking for, life gets increasingly easier.
Finding new freelancers is the hardest part.
Alright so remember one thing. These MLM tips are written so that you can use them…so take action now!
