8 Business Chores You Should Outsource

When you have big goals to accomplish on a tiny budget, you may feel like you have to do everything yourself. But small business owners can find help, increasingly turning to HRO Service as a less expensive source of assistance.

Here are eight of the best tasks for small businesses to outsource

Administrative tasks

A outsource virtual assistant takes care of all your business' administrative needs remotely, such as answering emails, filing and sending out invoices. Virtual assistants can work by phone, fax, email or even instant message.



Accounting and bookkeeping

A knowledgeable outsourcer can take over anything an in-house accountant handles. This could include QuickBooks operation or setup, billing system creation and maintenance, simple accounts payable or receivable tracking, and collections.





Copywriting

Don't have time to keep up with your company's blog? A outsource copywriter can produce fresh, relevant content and offer valuable advice for your customers. Writers can also help you come up with eye-catching product descriptions and copy for advertisements.

Customer support

If you don't have time to deal with every customer question and concern, consider hiring a outsourcer to share the load. Todd R., CEO of HRO Service Outpost, recommended training all customer support workers to be strong brand ambassadors, since a customer's experience can determine whether he or she will continue to patronize a business.

Data entry

Businesses often forget that they can outsource data entry. This work demands that busy business owners sit down, order data and type it out, which can take hours. It is laborious and time consuming, but it is easily outsourced. Data entry projects can take on many different forms, such as Excel data entry, Word data entry, electronic data processing, typing, transcribing or clerical jobs.


 

Market research and lead generation

Research plays a pivotal role in the growth of any company. In-depth industry and market research provides businesses with the necessary insights for future strategies. Once your HRO Service have collected and compiled key market data and potential sales leads, you can analyze those findings and make decisions from there.

Social media marketing

With so many different social platforms requiring attention, an outsource social media marketer can be invaluable to business owners. By developing a strategy, writing content and building up a strong following, social media experts will add immense value, without having to justify the expense of hiring someone full time.



 

Translation

If you work with international clients or business partners, translating materials from one language to another is important. But if you're not fluent or don't have the budget to hire a professional translation company, this can be extremely difficult. Outsource translators will give you the quality of translation you need for a fraction of the price.

For these or any other tasks outsourced to HRO Service Providers, Cordasco advised crafting a clear, concise job description and reviewing sample work from any potential candidates. From there, you can assign a test project to ensure that a outsourcer is the right fit for your company.
