Tasks that You Should Outsource to a Freelancer


When you run a small business you need to keep your costs down in order to make a profit and keep your business healthy. One way to keep your overhead costs down is by hiring freelancers to handle tasks instead of hiring inhouse fulltime or parttime employees. Freelancers are cheaper than regular employees because they don’t require office space, and you don’t need to worry about payroll taxes or any benefits. When your business is a brand new start-up, hiring freelancers can really help you get off the ground without the burden of needing a large office space to house employees or having to pay monthly salaries. When you hire a freelancer you only have to pay for their actual work, not for them to have lunch or to sit around the office chatting. Here are several types of tasks you should hire a freelancer to do for your business today:

You can hire a freelancer to develop software and/or apps and perform email systems management. Website and server hosting can be outsourced as well. You can even have online customer support service for your business run entirely by freelancers. Pretty much anything to do with computers can be done remotely.

Virtual assistants can handle most of your business's administrative tasks remotely. In our increasingly cashless society most of your business’s accounting can now be done off-site by a freelancer. You can even hire a freelancer once a year at tax-time to do your taxes.

Online Presence Related Tasks:

Hire a blogger to keep your company’s website blog running and hire a social media manager to share that blog and do other tasks to maintain and boost your business's online presence all over social media.
