Exposed! The Truth About Outsourcing: What you need to know

Outsourcing simply means hiring another company or individual (outside of your business sphere) to handle certain tasks for your business. These people could either provide labor or some other type of service for you for a fee. In today’s business world, outsourcing is now the norm.

A lot of companies are into it right now, but why is this so? What are the benefits of having outsiders handle crucial tasks that can make or mar your business?


A recent study has revealed that cutting costs is the number one reason people outsource. When it comes to the world of e-commerce, hiring employees to take on tasks like web design, management, and operational services can be quite expensive. The alternative is to outsource these jobs at a cheaper rate.


Another reason for outsourcing is that it is now relatively easier to find individuals or organizations to work for you. The internet has effectively shrunk the world down into a global village; now there are websites that are specially designed as a base for outsourcing.

Fiverr and Upwork are very good examples, here, you can find professionals that are willing to help you manage your business in different areas, ranging from your website to article generation, graphics designs, blog management, product research, SEO, etc.


The list of outsourcing jobs is virtually endless, and these people can be hired at a cheaper rate when compared to maintaining the traditional employee. In the end, if you select the right individuals, you will be getting the same service or even something better in contrast with hiring an employee.


However, as a true entrepreneur, you cannot leave everything to your remote workers. You will have to show up from time to time to monitor the progress of your work and ensure everything goes smoothly. Another key thing to note is that everything usually works fine if and ONLY if you pick the right people to work with, having said that, the onus then lies on you to ensure your partners are efficient, trustworthy and reliable. I will suggest you test out any potential hire first with samples of work, and gradually build your relationship to the point you can trust him/her.


Like I mentioned earlier, today, we are living in a global village. A big but small, small world; it would be counterproductive to decide to handle everything by yourself. Outsourcing is the key to making your business run smoother, faster and much more efficiently, provided it is done the right way.


Hope this helps you out.

Use feedbackgenius or sellerbacker.. After the client left positive reviews under seller feedback you automatically ask if they'd be interested in sharing their experience with the product on the product page! Works like charm.

Dont say that you are from Thailand on your store. Buy a virtual address in USA, use fiver to proofread the texts (very cheap). See the video about building credibility, it helped me a lot

Sathaporn, make sure your store looks trustworthy, follow the common steps outlined in the video lesson about building trust.
- virtual address

- hire virtual assistant to proofread your english if you struggle with english. (on fiverr for $5)
- put trust seals
- be clear about delivery time
- provide great tracking and good customer service to keep customers happy

Hi Claudia..

Does your store (mybestfriend.store) is Everything Store or Niche Specific Store?

Claudia says at 05:24 et
It's "everything dog related store". Niche specific store would be "Dog's Frisby Store" "Pug Toy Store" or "Dog Halloween Store"

I have watched a lot of videos and I understand what they are telling me to do. However, I can't memorize an all the instructions. Is there a written text instruction that I can reread the instructions as I am filling out the forms? I have been putting everything on my reading list but don't know if that is enough.
