Digital Products: Should You Outsource?

Jul 11, 2008
Running an Internet business is sometimes hectic. Not only do you have to manage all your employees and all of the things that you have to do in order to keep your business running, and keep sales looming in, you sometimes have to run personal errands while you are working. If you are an entrepreneur and you have seen yourself in this situation, it might be time for you to think about how outsourcing can help you in your business.

The best reason that you should outsource some of the workload that you have is simply to make some time available for you to do other things instead. If you are in the digital media product business, where a business model can very easily be set up and run automatically, there is no reason for you to not outsource some of your operations. Things that you can outsource could be customer service, packing and shipping, advertisement designs, etc. Some of these things you can easily review when your outsourcers do provide you the work. And remember, reviewing is much easier than actually doing it for yourself.

Of course when you first start running a business, the best way to go about it is to do everything yourself. Many entrepreneurs in America got rich using this method. It is a reasonable method and a profitable method, only if you learn how to do it.

If you haven't realized, many production type work has already been outsourced to other nations. You may not like the term "outsourcing" so much because many of America's jobs has been given to other people. Nonetheless, there is a good thing in outsourcing and it is especially good for you if you are a digital media product seller.

As you may have probably bootstrapped yourself, you already know how the operation of your business is run. Ranging from product creation to customer service to shipping and packing, these are all things that are very dear to you. Because you know how to run these effectively, you can easily manage and outsource it for others to do them for you. This allows you time other things, such as running errands or spending time with your spouse, or perhaps bonding with your children.

Outsourcing is not negative and I want to dismiss that fact right now. Outsourcing gives you the freedom of time and also allows you to learn one more skill -- management of employees. By being effective and being productive in the management of your outsourcers, you learn a valuable skill -- delegation -- and not just running, but owning a business.
