29% of ProBlogger Readers Outsource Part of Their Blogging

Earlier in the year I asked readers whether they outsourced any part of their blogging in a poll. By outsourcing I was talking about ‘paying‘ someone else to do something on your blog.

Here are the results after 2195 responses.

I was actually a little surprised that the number was so small because in the introduction to the poll I included things like ‘blog design’ in what could be included in outsourcing.

Here are the types of things that those who said ‘yes’ said that they outsourced:

  • tech/managing the backend (updates, plugins etc)
  • product creation/design
  • writing of posts – staff writers
  • writing of posts – ghost writing
  • blog/logo design
  • marketing
  • comment moderation
  • SEO
  • administrative tasks
  • editing/proofing posts
  • selling advertising

    I suppose the same ideas could be applied to someone that offers no products but only advertising space on their blog. I guess that could be considered as a product
