I’d like to run a quick poll in this post that examine the idea of outsourcing.
You see more and more I’m talking to bloggers (big and small) and am hearing that they outsource at least some of their blogging activities.
Perhaps the most common of these is hiring designers or writers – but there are many other activities that I see blogger outsource.
Here are some of those that I’ve seen bloggers do as well as a few suggestions from my followers on Twitter:
Please note – I’m talking about ‘paid outsourcing’ - not guest posts or getting a friend to help you with some aspect of your blog or even buying a blog template – but paying others to do some aspect of your blogging.
- Blog Design
- Paid Blog Writing
- Comment Moderation
- Selling Advertising
- Administrative Tasks (like managing email)
- Post Editing
- Tech – Looking after the Back End
- Creation of Products (E-Books)
I’m sure there are many other things that could be added to this list (and I invite you to do so below).
So now you know the type of things I’m talking about – do you outsource any aspect of your blogging?
PS: again, I’m talking about outsourcing to freelancers or paid staff in some way and not buying a blog template or getting someone to do some of these things for free.
