I have had the opportunity to watch as small businesses grow into big, solid companies and have watched large businesses advanced to greater levels in business. The companies that employ outsourcing as a tool that they can use to successfully expand their business now know the tremendous value that outsourcing has brought to their businesses. I have made it my mission to help both small and big companies achieve their goal of getting quality service without parting with an arm or leg.
Outsourced employees always strive to ensure that they provide the best service for you and do not see themselves as just one inconsequential part of a big machine like many in-house employees do. Outsourced employees know that you have a choice to take your business elsewhere, which is why they will put in their very best (all the time) in the tasks that they perform for you. Many in-house staff usually get “comfortable” and bored with their job and lack the passion that they once had for their job. With an outraced employee, you can always count on getting quality performance.
You also get to pay an outsourced according to the number of hours that they work. For instance, if your outsourced employee gets paid 347 per month for a putting in 40 hours of work time at 10 hours per week, you only get to pay for 40 hours and not more. Many employers do not know this, but they actually pay certain employees in their companies for sitting down in front of their computer and just chatting away on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site.
Large businesses that hire outsourced customer services providers to help handle their customer services support are outsourcing that aspect of their business function in order to concentrate on their core business activities. It is totally possible to outsource virtually every aspect of business processes within a company.
Outsourced Business Practices
As mentioned above, virtually any part of business processes that is not related to core business activities can be successfully outsourced. Here are a couple of typically outsourced business processes:
• Graphic design and multimedia
• Financing and accounting
• Telemarketing and sales
• Data entry and administrative support
• Web design and development
• Business strategy
• Business plans
• Article writing and translation
• Database development
• Press releases
• Creative writing
• Software and technology
When you outsource, you are not only saving a lot of money on running your business, you are also saving yourself from the heartache of paying unproductive employees who are just dead weight.
