The success of your business is purely down to your knowledge, persistence and hard work. Every business owner I have ever met has always been eager to take on new challenge. They always aim to get clued up on the latest systems and learn wherever possible. It’s tempting to take on the responsibility of knowing how to do each element of running and growing your business. However, no one can be an expert in everything!

 

What is outsourcing?

Outsourcing is the act of contracting out to another individual or company. This may be contracting a service, such as customer service or business development, or it may be obtaining a product.

 

“For everything we don’t like doing there’s someone out there who’s good, wants to do it and will enjoy it.”

Josh Kaufman

 

Outsourcing tasks to an expert will free up your time to focus on the core elements of your business. Experts can help to build your reputation. To gain industry knowledge, they will have had to make mistakes which you can now learn from and avoid! Additionally, experts will often have contacts within the industry that may present you with future opportunities.

 

Outsourcing allows you the ability to scale and provides you access to skilled expertise, flexible staffing, increasing efficiency while reducing turnaround time and overhead without the investment in space & recruitment.”

Outsourcing expert, Matt Hammond

 

When an expert equals success

There are many examples of when failing to use the expertise of others has a catastrophic effect on your business. As a business owner, I am always eager to get advice on how to make my business bigger and better; when recently reading an article by MGSD Pro, my eyes were opened to just how important outsourcing can be when you are looking to expand your business.

They say “common mistakes for companies launching into Europe include […] spending money needlessly on activities that can be outsourced. While outsourcing might not necessarily result in lower spending, at least the dollars go toward the talent that is critical for success: the marketing teams, sales channel developers, account managers and technical writers that will make the company appear to be local to […] customers.  Selecting a partner that is experienced in the market, can provide you with exceptional talent, is flexible, willing to integrate into your culture and has a vested interest in your success is crucial.”

You may want to become omniscient within all the areas of your business. However, it is better to concentrate on your core competencies and leave everything else to the experts!
