Outsourcing – Test the Water

At the outset of a new endeavor, a combination of anxiety and caution are warranted. It’s more comfortable if you don’t have to make a big commitment while you kick the tires and go for the test drive. You need a period of time to try out new ideas and practices for your business, and in that period of time you either gain confidence or decide it’s not your best choice.

This should be your approach if you are new to outsourcing as well. Don’t jump in with both feet and decide that you’re going to hand over all your bookkeeping and customer support in one fell swoop. Rather, move slowly toward a planned goal of outsourcing all the tasks that you can.

Are they doing it right and making progress for your business?

If you are answering yes to these questions, congratulations! You have found a winner and a keeper. On the other hand, if you are answering  to any of these questions, go back to the outsourcing company and have them find you another employee to try.

Once you have found one outsourced employee that works well for you, it will be easier to find more. You will have more clarity about what you are looking for in your interview process and in your specifications to the outsourcing company.

And, believe me, once you have found an outsourcing company that can deliver quality workers for your business, you will wonder why you did not outsource sooner. Your business will be growing right before your very eyes. Just take that first step and try its.
