Kevin Ashcroft tells us why you should outsource the work necessary to grow your company and talks about his book, Outsourcing For Success, where he shares his secret sauce for growing a business by using global talent.
On today’s podcast:
When you begin outsourcing, start small, don’t overthink it. It’s safe, it doesn’t cost you and it doesn’t take much time, but it gives you the confidence to move forward with outsourcing bigger projects.
Focus on quality of outsourced talent rather than getting the cheapest available. Paying more for talent actually lowers your overall business costs while giving you better overall ROI.
Set the expectations of freelancers up front, to build a level of trust that flows both ways.
If you’re starting a business or you’re looking for a mentor, Kevin is offering 4 entrepreneurs every 6 months mentorship, as well as choosing one business a month for a site makeover.
The premise of Outsourcing For Success is to give business owners and entrepreneurs insight into outsourcing, how they can use it to scale their business, and to get access to skills and services they find hard to come by.
