Use another company for a task if it allows you to do more work for which you're paid higher than you pay the outsource company.

Let’s face it; it makes perfect sense to outsource tasks you don’t know how to do, don’t do well, don’t like to do or get better value for time by having someone else do them. Use another company for a task if it allows you to do more work for which you’re paid higher than you pay the outsource company. Anything from customer service to marketing to payroll can be outsourced. Simply follow these steps to choose the right company.


Update the business plan. This will force you to reflect on what tasks you want outsourced, what sort of match you’re looking for and your time frame for choosing an outsource company. Share this with your staff who’ll be involved with the outsource company.

Consider the company’s experience in your industry. Building a website for a service business, for instance, is different from creating one for a retail store. While experience shouldn’t be the deciding factor, you must consider it when choosing an outsource company.
