Outsourcing helps you cut out the menial tasks and focus on the important ones by getting another business to do these tasks for you. Many of us take advantages of accountants, cleaning companies and marketing agencies – but there are other services that you could be outsourcing. Here are a few of those services.
For some companies, almost half of Monday can be taken up trawling through an overflowing inbox. Imagine if you could outsource this task to someone else? Amazingly such a service exists. Email management companies can keep on top of your inbox and notify if anything important comes through that requires your attention, whilst answering, organising and filtering all the unimportant and routine emails for you.
Social media is fast becoming the next big marketing tool for businesses. But constantly updating Facebook and Twitter with engaging content can be time-consuming. Consequently, businesses are now starting outsource this role too to specialised social media marketing companies. Not only can these companies keep you social media buzzing, but help it to grow.
Business owners that are often out the office (or run multiple branches) may not always be around to hold regular meetings with staff and keep everyone in check. Some employers have hence started hiring personal assistants to take care of this job, making sure everyone’s tasks for the week are organised. Of course, as an employer, you should try to attend some of your workforces meeting’s so that you’re not completely out of the loop. And of course you should try to make time for your personal assistant to relay any important information learnt in the meetings back to you.
Keeping confidential documents and personal details safe online can mean shelling out on lots of expensive cyber-security. An alternative is to invest in network security companies that can host all your information on a remote cloud server, keeping it all secure with the finest digital security (security that your business may not be able to afford). With more and more businesses trusting the cloud, this method of security is becoming ever more popular.
24 hour service
Is your business being held back by weekday 9 to 5 opening hours? Business is constantly expanding internationally due to the power of the internet, but this means having to deal with multiple time zones. For phonecalls and email exchanges, information is passed at a much slower rate if you’re only in the office at select times. Of course, no business owner wants to be making and answering calls 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As a result some businesses are turning to 24 hour hotline services. Such services can all be used to handle out-of-hours calls from staff. It’s a great way to keep your business constantly running – or at least create the illusion that it is always running.
