The first step in outsourcing (aside from knowing what tasks you need you want to outsource) is to determine which parts of your business you want to systematize.
Outsourcing, the practice of hiring third party companies to perform services or offer goods for other companies, is a good way to build systems around other people’s processes (and make them better, too).
Hiring a firm poses this benefit as well: you will get more out of your investment, unlike hiring in-house employees. Because these firms have already established a reputation, employers are more likely to go with a party that treats them more like a client, and not a mere employer.
Now that we have established why you should start outsourcing, let’s go to where you should outsource. Where do we find these people?
