Outsourcing, particularly overseas, is often a controversial topic. UK and US customers often don’t like ringing up a customer call center and getting an out-of-country representative to help you.
However I’m an outsourcer and an outsourcee (a word I’ve probably just invented), all the clients who come to me are outsourcing blog setup and blog customization to enable them to achieve things they don’t have the time, or knowledge to do themselves.
When I take my car to be serviced or when I eat out at a restaurant, I’m outsourcing those tasks. Not because I’m too stupid to learn how to do it myself, but because I don’t want to have to learn how to do it and I don’t have the time.
Outsourcing your time
Tyrone Shum is an outsourcer who I’ve known for quite sometime and he’s helped train and coach hundreds of people to outsource their work and leverage their time to focus on making money from their blogs, with his course Mass Outsource.
He has 35 step by step training videos, which include 18 high quality training videos to give to virtual staff ranging on topics such as article marketing, SEO, video and audio. Each video has templates, resources, and transcribed manuals and in three different formats available – MP4 (for iPhone), MP3 audio and onscreen videos.
The price is not cheap at $197.00 per month for 4 months, but you can get 10 free videos here.
Outsourcing your blog writing and web copy
I recently found a great writer who is supporting me and some of my clients on blog posts to free up some of their time. Not only does she write high-quality copy on time, she also comes up with ideas to broaden the scope of what we write about. She is Jen Syrkiewicz, from Stilus Communications.
Jen charges just $15 per 500 word blog article, and if you sign up for ten you get two free. It can take the hassle away from managing your blog, freeing you up to do other things like optimizing it and networking. She’ll even write you a sample post, which is free once you sign up for the service. Stilus also writes SEO-compliant web copy for your site, press releases, bids and news articles.
If you’d like to know more about the service Stilus offers, please get in touch with her at http://www.stiluscopywriting.co.uk to find out more. I’ll be hiring her for my next sales page project.
Outsourcing your blog setup and customization
Of course, that’s a blatant plug for my services at the end. Why not, it’s my site…. 🙂
