So you’ve started your own business. Unfortunately, you’ve also noticed that there are a lot of tasks that could further your company but which you don’t necessarily have the time or money to do in-house.
You may think that outsourcing is a dirty word in the world of business, but it’s actually extremely common and useful for startups. It can also be done locally as opposed to overseas. Here are the tasks you should consider getting others to do!
Many small business owners don’t anticipate that much of a need for data entry in their business. But it rarely matters what field you’re working in: data entry becomes a requirement for most modern companies, and it’s much more time-consuming than a lot of people initially assume.
Of course, data entry also happens to, most of the time, be a very repetitive and simple task. Most people in small businesses who decide to take on data entry usually find themselves wondering why the heck they don’t get someone else to do it. Well, lucky you: this is possible!
Outsourcing data entry can be done quite easily in two ways. The first is to work with a company like Axion. The second is to hire freelancers who can do it from their own home.
Modern startups need computers, right? Long gone are the Mad Men when we could get by with typewriters and the national postal service. While investment in IT may seem like a steep (and unavoidable) cost, further investment in IT maintenance should still be a priority for your business.
The problem here is that IT professionals are often very expensive; plus, it’s highly unlikely you’re going to need one around all the time, especially when your business is as small as it is. But, as you can probably guess by the presence of this section in such an article, you can outsource this part of your business’s operations, too! Companies like CyBerJaz can help you out.
When we think of highly-qualified and experienced executives, we think of very powerful workaholics who can help a company fulfill its true potential. We also think of people who have insanely high salaries!
So it’s understandable that many small business owners are a bit reluctant to start getting executives into the company, even if they think the company really needs it. Thankfully, you can actually outsource this, too! “Executive-as-a-Service” is becoming more popular all the time, thanks to the tremendous growth it can bring to a small business.

Chiefs of human resources are not cheap. These people have accumulated a lot of experience and are absolutely fantastic additions to a growing small business, helping you save a bunch of time when it comes to employee concerns as well as annual leave and sick leave.
Fortunately for you, this is also something you can outsource. Many business owners feel that this is a strange route to take – after all, shouldn’t an HR employee be among the other employees? But, it can work out extremely well as long as you pick the right agency. ADP TotalSource is among the most highly rated around.
