Most of the time an organisation cannot handle all aspects of a business process internally, which is why outsourcing to a specialist external service provider is common practice.

Once the task has been outsourced to the service provider, they will take responsibility of maintaining the processes and procedures to take complete ownership of that function.

There are many valid reasons to consider outsourcing, in particular if the particular process doesn’t require a full time member of staff. It can also be an ideal solution if you do not possess the certain skills or have the time required to carry out the task.

Don’t slow down your business by spending time on the wrong tasks. Here’s three things that you could be outsourcing.

1. Accountancy and Finance

For many entrepreneurs and small business owners, handling tasks related to business accounting and finances is stressful, challenging, and time consuming. Outsourcing this area to a qualified accountant can take the pain away from trying to manage your income and expenditure so that you can focus on developing your business further.

And if you employ staff and don’t want to deal with employee payments, benefits, classifications and training you could consider outsourcing these services to a HR and payroll company.

2. Administration

Another area of running a business that can become labour intensive is all the admin tasks that soon tot up. If you find you don’t have time to manage your calendar and emails or you need someone to run your social media channels for you, you may want to outsource to a virtual assistant (VA).

You can hire people to handle jobs by the hour, the day, or per project so that you can stick to a budget, as well as only utilising their services when you have specific needs at the time.

VAs can be hired to look after a wide range of tasks that can be done remotely, so the sky really is the limit as to how much work you want to send their way.

3. Website maintenance

Your website is your online presence to the world and an important part of any modern business. Keeping your WordPress website updated, backed up and secure can become a time consuming and complicated process which is why it’s a common function for businesses of all sizes to outsource.

All websites require regular maintenance to give you the performance, leads and sales you want. Once your website is up and running, there’s a lot to monitor and maintain in terms of WordPress core, theme and plugin updates. This can take up valuable time to keep on top of and can easily be overlooked in favour for client prospecting, strategising and other high-level tasks that will add to your bottom line. However, it’s not an area you can afford to ignore as keeping your site updated will protect you and your customers against common weaknesses and attacks.

At WP Tech Support, we can handle all aspects of your website’s maintenance and security for complete peace of mind. Our great value monthly plans range from just £35 per month – a small price to pay to ensure your website stays up to date and secure. In fact, we’re so sure that you’ll love it that we will refund you if you’re not 100% happy!
