Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking

Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking

The Critical Differences Between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking Why You Must Use Both

Like many people online I use a number of Outsource partners and in doing so it teaches you an interesting lesson, for the purposes of this post I’m going to call it the critical differences between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking, at first they sound like two ways of describing the same thing but I see a critical difference

So what is the critical difference between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking and why does it matter? I personally think it’s at the heart of how we do business, it either releases our time or it causes us a lot of un needed stress as deadlines are missed with countless e mails and diagrams flying around in cyber space

When we come down to it Outsourcing is any one off project that you need to complete that you want to either release your time from or lack the technical skills to carry out without spend hours trying to learn, in short you know exactly what you want you just don’t know exactly how to make it happen

Out Tasking by the same measure is any task that repeats itself in your business that you need to get done, it’s important to your success but it can be easily placed in somebody else’s hands, do you start to see a critical difference between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking?

Why Differentiate Between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking?

So why differentiate between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking anyway? for me it’s really simple it’s about two things in my mind, a good Out Tasker is somebody that you will build an ongoing relationship with, who in effect becomes a remote member of your team, he or she has a skill set you need but vitally they have something else as well

You see the other vital difference between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking is your Out Tasker knows exactly what you want and delivers it fast, they appreciate your regular business and you in turn know that area is taken care of, an Outsource worker is by it’s nature a trip into the unknown for you

I have talked about this before but lets touch on this again in the context of Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking, when establishing a new service that you will use on an ongoing basis it is best to place the work with up to 5 Outsourcers, why because you are market testing at this point, let me explain what I mean by this

Of these 5 one will probably just not do the work but will make excuses, one will do it poorly, two will do a good job and one will do an outstanding job explaining different ways to add value to what you are doing, we can quickly see that in the context of Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking, number one is a non starter where as number 5 looks really good, the initial investment pays off right from the start using this approach

Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking Finding Those Key People

So we can see from the example above that a little front end investment will repay us many times over, it also perfectly illustrates the vital difference between Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking but where do you find these people, well in my post on Dec 3rd I talked about Micro Outsourcing and I listed a number of key sites to use there

I recently produced a 20 minute MP3 called Outsourcing Made Easy It covers the key Outsourcing sites that you can use, it’s a great starting point as it also discusses recruiting your own Outsourcers as opposed to just one offs, it’s an ideal introduction to Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking, it’s free with no one time offers involved

I think you need to shift your mind set to really get the most out of Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking but once you do you will see yourself getting a lot more done, in a stress free way and in a far shorter time

So hopefully you will start viewing these seeming related issues as two separate functions, one as one off projects and the other as a key relationship building exercise, as always I’d love to hear your experiences on Outsourcing Verses Out Tasking

Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage

Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage

Can We Take Advantage Of Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage?

I got to thinking after my post on Friday if there was another opportunity that we were missing when it came to Micro Outsourcing and that was in the form of Arbitrage

It struck me that for those people with coaching programs or those who offer consultancy services there may well be a whole new opportunity here using Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage

At first glance it might touch on a question of ethics but then you have invested a lot of time establishing which of the Micro Outsourcers would work in this way, which ones you could include in an Arbitrage program, those of us who have used these sites will recognize the principal of kissing quite a few frogs to find the prince or princess as it were

So in some respects far from being unfair using Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage offers a great saving to the end user whilst still allowing you to make a fair charge for your time, after all you are selling your knowledge and in this case that knowledge is the quality workers that will get the job done on time at a great price

For those of you not clear on my meaning here by Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage I am talking about the difference between what you buy a service for and the price you sell it, the normal process in other words that we take for granted when we walk into any retail store

So we are used to paying for it in the high street, in the shopping mall and in every other form of commercial transaction we take on board so surely Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage is just a natural extension of everyday business that requires us to make a profit, to reinvest in our businesses and to pay our team

Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage Is A Normal Commercial Transactions Then Right?

On that basis Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage is just a normal commercial transaction and we should look for the opportunity in it instead of seeing it as a slight of hand, if you are anything like me I recommend Outsourcers on a very regular basis for their high quality work, so probably more fool me for not taking any commercial gain from it

Just step back and think a moment of how many Micro Outsourcing transactions you might undertake in a week, the time you invest to find the good people, the money you have wasted on the people who promised but who failed to deliver or who were just down right bad news and you start to see that putting forward the best to your clients make Arbitrage a very fair system

By doing this you are taking away other peoples risk and wasted time and making their Micro Outsourcing experience a good one, it really just reinforces the argument for Arbitrage, you have undertaken the selection process in the way a recruiter does when recommending staff the added bonus is you have actually consumed the service so you know first hand that it works

From my understanding a whole underground industry has grown up around Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage with people advertising their re bundled services in offline publications and on none related service based web sites, effectively they are becoming knowledge brokers

And this really brings us to the reason that the majority of people go online for, if you can be the bridge between the people with a problem on one side and the people with the solution on the other side you have the opportunity to make money, the bigger the problem generally the bigger the cost of the solution

Thinking Outside The Box On Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage

So by thinking outside the box on Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage you are just leveraging your knowledge and your past research and a degree of your previous frustrations into a new form of business opportunity, it is just an extension of the principle that Edward De Bono taught us about putting on the different thinking hats

I would say that Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage is also an natural extension of Spencer Johnson’s teachings in his various one minute manager books and audio programs that taught us the ability to step back and see a bigger picture was vital

I think one of the things that come across from reading through the comments are that a number of you are not yet
Outsourcing in your businesses, if you want to get things done quickly, with a minimum of frustration and to a high standard I would say it’s essential

So in conclusion this is really an natural extension of how we do business, we have invested the time and sometimes the related frustration in finding the really good people and in weeding out the bad ones, so far from being unethical there has never been a better time to practice Micro Outsourcing Arbitrage

Is Micro Outsourcing The Key To Your Success Going Forward?

Today I’m asking the question is Micro Outsourcing the key to your success going forward, but what do I mean by that and why does it matter?

Well put simply the more you business grows the more you need to Outsource parts or increasingly larger sections of your business to release your time on the key sales, product development and relationship building that really matters and this is where Micro Outsourcing really comes into it’s own

What could only be described as a rash of Micro Outsourcing sites have sprung up recently and they make perfect sense for both the person on a budget when they are starting out and to be honest used correctly they still make sense for those of us who take things rather more seriously

So back to what exactly do I mean by Micro Outsourcing sites? well in this interpretation I mean sites that advertise fixed price jobs or gigs as they tend to be known for between $4 and $30 Dollars, in this range you can get just about anything done

On the face of it they sound great but as always it comes with a critical caveat emptor [buyer beware] for those of you not of the Latin persuasion, get it right and your work is done in 24 to 48 hours at a great price, get it wrong and massive frustration
and delayed projects await, I know I’ve seen both sides

Get it right however and you will recommend the people concerned to your subscribers, welcome to the world of Micro Outsourcing

Planning For A Successful Micro Outsourcing Campaign

Planning and research are everything in getting your Micro Outsourcing campaigns to work the right way, first of all you must be absolutely clear what you want, with unclear instructions your outsourcer is taking an educated guess and you will not get what you want, result frustration, wasted time, plan well and you will benefit every time, it may take a few minutes longer to start with but believe me it will be worth it

Always check how the market views them, Micro Outsourcing sites use a review and rating system, read them first before ordering, if they are not rated asked them a question and watch the response, is it customer friendly? is it done quickly? pay close attention because this is likely to mirror your actual experience when using this person

Get all of your support materials together and put them in a zip file like win zip, many Micro Outsourcing sites only allow you to send 1 file at a time and you don’t want to find this out just as you are 75% of the way through your order, again been there done that

Next think on a personal level, explain to the outsourcer that if this gig works out you are looking for somebody to do this on a regular basis, in life we work with nice supportive people who make our lives better, just because they are low cost does not mean they are low value, build relationships and watch your service levels rise dramatically

For those of you used to the traditional outsourcing sites you will find the lack of bid time and endless form filling a breath of fresh air, Micro Outsourcing is simply and straightforward all the gigs are already planned out, that said if you want something extra or different just ask the question, I always do, just remember the relationship part as your doing this

So Where Do I Find These Micro Outsourcing Professionals?

So where you may be wondering do you find these Micro Outsourcers? good question, a search on Google will give you a couple of the most popular but there are a great number now just waiting to make your life so much more straightforward

Lets start with the best known of these Micro Outsourcing sites one called Fiverr as it’s name implies all gigs are $5 Dollars, yes you read that right just $5 Dollars, would you like the 2 million hits a day this site gets? thought so, you can get everything, right down to somebody singing happy birthday in a celebrity voice

Next up comes Gigswood they offer gigs for between $4 and $19 Dollars, it’s perhaps my favourite Micro Outsourcing site, it’s just had a major revamp and again the range is huge, in all cases you can also post wants on the sites, just sign up, it takes two or three minutes and your ready to go

Next up is a site called Zeerk slightly wider cost range between $5 and $25 Dollars, again a big range and again another popular Micro Outsourcing site, a quick look on the front page alone comes up with some great gigs, well worth a further look

Lastly in my roundup of Micro Outsourcing sites is one called Gighour almost unbelievable but their gigs start at just $1 Dollar and range up to $7 and all combinations based on that, I’ll leave you to draw your conclusions on appearance but the content is deadly serious and great value

So it goes without saying that this is a subject with plenty of mileage in it and I will doubtless return to it at a later stage but for now my advice is if your not already doing so start Micro Outsourcing
