You don’t have to go it alone—save time, money and your sanity by outsourcing.
In our March issue's Business column, we discuss outsourcing, or contracting out an aspect of your business to another party. By freelancing out parts of your biz, like bookkeeping, marketing and website design, you’ll free up time and money to pursue bigger business goals and improve your work-life balance. Not sure where to look for help? We've got you covered:
- Personal network Start with your own network of people. Ask friends, family and associates for referrals. Good for: hiring faculty and administrative assistants.
- Upwork Business owners submit a job posting and receive a link to interested freelancers’ portfolios and work history. Good for: video editing; website design.
- 99designs Gather graphic-design pitches from various designers before choosing your perfect collaborator. Good for: logo design.
