I know. You are sick to death of people telling you that you need to outsource. Just hang with me for a second here. I know you hear this all the time, but that is only because it it true.
As a part time internet entrepreneur you need to outsource in your business as much as you possibly can. It’s important and you need to figure out how to get it done.
Instead of just preaching outsourcing: let me give you a simple way to think it. Consider it a model for success as a part time internet business person. Ready?
If you spend 15 minutes every night making a list of things that could be done at that moment by somebody else.
Take for example transcribing a video. When I get done with a video I’ll typically ship it off to a fantastic transcriptionist, she will transcribe it for me and make a PDF, and I won’t touch it.
Sending articles to directories is another really good example. Other examples include pulling traffic reports from your sites, tweaking and maintaining sites, updating autoresponders, etc.
Make that list of things that you don't want to do anyway and have them done while you sleep. I can’t explain it to you any other way. The most effective use of your sleep time is to have some worker in the Philippines doing your work for you while you sleep. That person is thrilled to have the work, and you will be thrilled to have the work complete.
I know what you’re going to tell me. “Mark, I’m just getting started. I can’t afford to outsource.” Let me tell you, Your time is worth more than you think. You cannot afford NOT to outsource. But, if you really don’t believe that, just start small.
Think of a small thing and go to Scriptlance.com, or someplace like that and outsource it. Just one thing.
Even better yet there’s a new site called Fiverr.com where you can get stuff done for five dollars. Look at the internet marketing section (Social Marketing), and you will see that people will do various social bookmarking tasks and other things for you that you should not be spending your time on for five dollars.
I know you’ve got five dollars, give it a try and see what you think.
You need to learn how to outsource if you’re going to be a successful part time internet marketer, take my word for it.
