Outsourcing can bring your voiceover business to new heights. Owning a business can be a lot of work, and not everyone has the time for it. Also, some of the tasks can not be done by everybody. For instance, not every person understands and can do bookkeeping, but it’s an incredibly important job. In this case, it would make sense to outsource the task.
Voiceover Business Outsourcing
It can be unclear what you should outsource as a voiceover business owner. You’ve probably become used to doing everything yourself. This can make it difficult to relinquish control over some of the tasks. It’s important to do it, though. The less you have to do, the more time you’ll have to market your business and complete projects on time.
A great way to identify which jobs you can outsource is to write down everything you do each day for a month. After the month, go through your list of tasks and cross out the ones that you must do. For instance, you have to work on client projects, and you have to meet with clients. Those cannot be outsourced since you’re the person that the client wants and needs.
Once you’ve identified the tasks you have to do, you’ll be left with the ones that you can outsource. Go through them and jot down some notes on how you can outsource each job. You may be able to consolidate some of the projects and outsource them to one person, or you may have to find one person to take care of one job. When you do this, you’ll have a better idea who you have to find.
Begin Finding Opportunities for Outsourcing
You can find many people looking to help you online. If you need someone locally, you may want to try LinkedIn or Craigslist. LinkedIn allows you to search for people by area and see their knowledge, experience, and skills. Craigslist is divided into cities, so you can place an ad looking for someone with the credentials you seek.
If the tasks can be done remotely, it’s best to search for people online. Many outsourcing websites such as Upwork help you find individuals who can help you. Take time to look through profiles and read reviews to find the perfect matches for the tasks you need to be completed.
Feel the Pressure Slip Away
As you delegate many of the tasks you need completing to run your voiceover business, you’ll find yourself with more time. You’ll think, “Wow, I have time to work on more projects now.” This may lead to outsourcing your marketing so that you can have more potential gigs. As you take on more gigs because of the increase in marketing, you’ll earn more money. In addition, as you take on more voiceover work, you’ll be able to turn away low paying gigs and raise your rates leading to bigger revenue increases.
Consider outsourcing now. Make your list. Identify outsourceable tasks and start finding people to help you. It may be the best business decision you’ve ever made.
