Thinking of Hiring a Freelancer?
Why hiring a freelancer to promote parts or all of the online side of your business can be cost-effective, flexible and productive for your business?.
Nowadays most consumers expect a business to have an online presence and unfortunately for lots of businesses out there, that means more work in reality because for most this adds into the daily or weekly equation another layer of time, effort and expense.
Whether the primary means of promoting your business online is through your website or through social media channels, the bottom line is that content has to be created.
That takes time, skill and sometimes time investment in learning how to use software tools and apps.
Some of you will have the time to invest but many will be time shy because simply they are just too busy.
Rather than simply neglecting your online marketing and letting it slide because you are too busy would it not make sense to outsource or hire an online virtual assistant.
Isn’t it interesting that 54% of the Google workforce are independent contractors basically working as freelancers (source Bloomberg)
Consider some important considerations when hiring a freelancer;
- Give clear and unambiguous instructions to the freelancer- they’re not mindreaders and the clearer your instruction to them the better the job that will be done for you. Take the guesswork out of the equation.
- Establish an effective workable way to communicate – agree on a means of communication that works for both of you. Pick a tool that works for both of you and the best times to collaborate.
- Establish a working relationship such that you both come to understand what makes each other tick.
