‘If you really want to grow as an entrepreneur, you’ve got to learn to delegate’
Is it possible to build a successful business without support? Can you really scale your business alone? Working 60 plus hours a week will not only risk you lowering your productivity level, but it also poses a serious risk of burnout.
It may come as a surprise to you that almost all successful entrepreneurs have a virtual assistant or specialist working along-side them. The simple facts are, you just can’t make a successful business all on your own and, trying to do everything proves nothing to anyone.
Here we look at 3 tasks and reasons the most successful entrepreneurs delegate out.
Getting Creative – Let creative people be creative for you! It is more common than ever to find creative people who are freelancing. Working with someone in this way means you can pick the right person, with the skills for a specific project you have in mind, meaning they are likely to be more passionate, giving you higher quality results while also saving you time and money.
Emails and repetitive tasks – Think about the cumulative number of hours you spend dealing with emails and tasks that pop up on your to do list each week. This is not a good use of time for any entrepreneur! Whether it is scheduling appointments, onboarding clients after sales have been made, writing and posting blogs and creating presentations, offloading these tasks to a trusted virtual assistant can remove frustration and free up time so you have more time and head space to grow your business.
Handling your social media – In recent years, social media management agencies have appeared in droves, and prices for even the most basic packages from some of these agencies can be eyewatering, especially for smaller businesses and businesses in their infancy. But you can save a lot of money by delegating to a freelancer or a virtual assistant who has social media management experience. Packages tend to be more flexible, better value, and can be tailored to suit the specific needs of your business. From scheduling and repurposing content that you already have, to creating eye catching slides, sharing relevant articles and even interacting with your audience. You can save yourself a huge amount of time while keeping your social media platforms engaging and active.
