You don’t have to wait for too long to outsource, especially for legal consultation and similar tasks. Taking some tasks outside of your business outfit promotes efficiency. Some startups are still concerned about what happens to productivity when they outsource.

Contrary to some entrepreneurs’ concern about productivity when they outsource tasks, a survey that Deloitte carried out on global outsourcing positions showed that outsourcing actually fuels innovation in addition to boosting productivity. And, innovation will further increase productivity.

During the same survey by Deloitte, nearly 60 percent of participants confirm that outsourcing truly cuts costs, while 47 percent affirmed that it helps unveil novel methods to resolve capacity issues. Others said that outsourcing increases an organization’s chances to accomplish global scaling.

So, going by those statistics and findings, outsourcing is a business solution that startups should embrace from the onset. If you are still concerned about staying productive while outsourcing, here are some tips to help you;

Tip #1: Determine what You want to Outsource with Minimal or no Anxiety

Making decision on what exactly to outsource can be sometimes challenging. Perhaps a great place to start is to list out those tasks that are critical to the fulfillment of your company’s mission, and those tasks that are not directly linked to your company’s goals or mission. Better still, start by clearly spelling out your company’s mission.

Tip #2: Referrals Can Help Keep Your Mind at Rest

Though considered old school by some, referral still remains one of the best ways to contract a service, especially if you are doing so for the first time. It will help clear your doubts and keep your mind at rest. Find out who your competitors are outsourcing to, so that you can explore their services.

There are several ways to get outsourcing referral. It can be during a business meeting, online, face to face, social media, and so on. But, do not just buy the praise showered on a potential company hook-line-and-sinker. Do your own research about the outsourcing company that you are referred to.

Tip #3: Find a Specialized Provider

If you want to outsource social media marketing, avoid an outsourcing provider who handles many areas. The exception is if the provider has a team member that specializes in the niche or task you wish to outsource. In essence, look for a social media marketer to outsource your social media marketing to, and not just a provider who handles all aspects of online promotion.

Tip #4: Put Tracking and Quality Assessment System in Place

To make sure outsourcing will lead to increased productivity; it is helpful to put some evaluation systems in place. For instance, if the work can be submitted in batches, you should request for each completed batch and assess it thoroughly before endorsing the commencement of the next batch.

These four methods can help you outsource successfully and productively.
