I get it. You’re so busy maintaining your blog, writing content, promoting, creating images, and commenting on other blogs that you just don’t have enough time in the day, let alone the week, to accomplish all your tasks.
Maybe it’s time you thought about outsourcing some of those tasks and ease your workload!
Trust me. Your sanity should come first. Don’t overwhelm yourself.
Knowing When It’s Time To Outsource Your Tasks To a Virtual Assistant
In today’s online business world, there are so many things that need to be taken care on a daily basis. Chances are if you’re tending to these tasks by yourself, you just can’t possibly get them done in a day’s work.
If you’re “one of those” who are able to accomplish their daily tasks every day, let me ask you this “How many hours in a day are you spending on your blog/website in order to achieve the satisfaction of completion?”
With the amount of time you’re spending on your blog/website, do you have time for friends, family, and even yourself?
This is one of the biggest problems today.
We are so busy in the online ventures that we tend to let other priorities slide. Ask yourself this?
- When was the last time you took your dog for a walk?
- When was the last time you went to your son’s baseball game?
- Had an intimate dinner for two with your partner?
- Kicked back in a candlelight bubble bath for one….YOU!
I betcha it’s been quite some time or if you did manage any of these, you spent time worrying about how you were going to finish writing that last blog post, hitting Publish, and pushing out to all your social media networks.
Let’s cut the crap.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
For maybe pennies a minute, you could get help!
Maybe It’s Time You
Thought About Hired a Virtual Assistant
Despite what you may think, not all of us are expensive.
There are Virtual Assistants who truly just want to help and will not charge you an arm and a leg.
Mind you, sometimes for Quality you need to pay more.
But for all intents and purposes, let’s look at what you could get for less than $50/month.
Hire a Blog Manager
A Blog Manager could be many things. This is generally a Virtual Assistant who is contracted monthly to perform some number of tasks for you.
For instance, I offer a monthly Blog Management/Maintenance package. However, due to its popularity and numerous different tasks being asked of me, I know offer a Customized Monthly Package.
This is a package that you create.
I’m sure, like most of us, we all have varying blogging skills. If you’re using WordPress, you may be far more advanced than another.
Some don’t understand what “updating a plugin” means or why it should even be done.
What happens when that plugin is updated and your blog goes all wonky?
Others know how to do certain tasks but just don’t want to be bothered.
The biggest one I see is moderating blog comments.
None of us want Spam on our blogs so we moderate our comments.
But if you have a high volume of commenters on your blog, you could spend hours just weeding through the comment section.
Other tasks you could have done are:
- general backend maintenance
- plugin updates
- theme updates
- minor theme alterations
- research blog downtime
- content writing
- content proofreading
- branded image creation
- newsletter creation
- social media promotion
There are so many tasks that could fall under Blog Management!
Think about some of the issues you had on your blog and you wish that you had someone to consult with?
Under this monthly package, you could have someone pretty much at your beck and call (within reason, I’m sure).
A Blog Manager could even keep up with the latest trends for you. Perform research on new web hosts or better web host solutions that would give you a bigger bang for your buck!
Wouldn’t it be awesome to know that someone out there is looking out for your blog while you are spending more time focusing on your business products and services?
Don’t think you can’t afford one.
A Virtual Assistant that is.
There is one out there for every blogger.
She/he is just waiting for you to contact them and can’t wait to hear how they can help make your life easier!
