Outsourcing As A Tool
Today I would like to talk a little bit about the options available for outsourcing some of your website work. Primarily, I want to address website content supplied by another party. It is definitely preferable to create your own content whenever possible, but sometimes you just won’t have the time to do this, or you might not have any ideas, or you might be creating a new site and want to get some content up quickly before padding it with your own content. There are many choices out there for doing this outsourcing, from having someone ghostwrite your website, to hiring an assistant to work with your sites on a day to day basis. These can be great tools to your own success, just keep in mind that every dollar you pay someone else, cuts into your own profit. Of course, there are times when that dollar can bring you profit, in excess of what you are spending. That certainly isn’t a bad thing.
My favorite tool for getting occasional help with my websites is a great site called Fiverr. It was once a site where you could get nearly any online service for $5, over time it has evolved and now it can be $5 or multiples of $5, sellers often offer upsells of their products as well, but it is all spelled out in the offers, there are no hidden fees on Fiverr. If you take the time to check out the site, but clicking on any of the links that I provide within this article, you should quickly be able to find any number of Gigs (what Fiverr calls their offers) that can help with whatever sort of assistance you might need. From article writing to ghost blogging to website creation to traffic creation to SEO help.
Outsourcing Article Creation
A few things I would suggest, make certain that you understand exactly what you are paying for, you can read the terms of the gig as well as chat with the seller prior to buying. I would suggest if you need multiple articles to buy one and verify the quality before ordering more. When you receive your article, it would be a good idea to check it on copyscape.com just to be safe, though I have never had an instance of plagiarism when buying from the site. You will find different levels of sellers and the higher levels tend to have more consistent quality. Click on this link to see a article creation gig to get an idea of what I am talking about.
Often, you will see an offer for an article of 500 words, but when you click on it you see that for additional payment you can get more words, special images, a shorter timeline, or any number of other options. All of them are typically very inexpensive, though they can add up if you select every upgrade and want the product more quickly than normal.
Speaking of being short on time, that is about all the time I have right now. I will likely revisit this topic as I think people would like to know about some of the other services fiverr.com can provide.
