When you own a business, you usually have quite a lot on your to-do list but that doesn’t mean you need to do everything yourself.
By outsourcing some of your daily tasks to another business you will have more time to spend on growing your business. It’s important to note that anybody can outsource their workload, it isn’t only big businesses that do this. In fact, you might be surprised how many small businesses outsource some of their tasks.
We have helped hundreds of businesses with their to-do lists and have found there are three common areas that businesses need our support with.
- Customer service
Outsourcing your customer service can look like taking care of emails, phone calls, social media messages, and live chats.
- Administrative tasks
Outsourcing your administrative tasks can include any of the repetitive tasks your business handles including data entry, creating word documents, printing, emailing, taking payments, and sending mail to clients.
- Calendar management
Calendar management allows a virtual business to take over the scheduling and rescheduling of appointments. This is particularly helpful for trade and medical businesses.
These three areas may seem incredibly simple but take some time to consider how much time you put into them. How many emails do you read and respond to a day? How many phone calls do you take where you need to schedule an appointment or take a payment? How much time do you spend posting mail to clients? Chances are, you spend a lot of time on these tasks. They may seem like little tasks but they definitely add up and chew into your time.
