In the competitive business world, online business owners must be creative and versatile.
They must think and act outside the box in order to remain relevant.
This is the only way to successfully attract people and eventually seal a business deal.
The truth is that in this world of an estimated seven billion people, each person you meet is talented.
One man’s meat is another man’s poison is a very popular adage. This, for online business owners means no matter how creative or versatile a person is, there are millions of things we do not know.
You may be a very good writer, who has the talent to craft fantastic copies that people could read and benefit from. This is good.
But you will need to sell your writing talent to the entire world. This you can do by creating your own blog, website, forum, group, or directory, etc and post your articles regularly for people to read.
But, you know you may be a good writer and yet know little or nothing about web design and hosting. This is me.
Therefore, you need someone to design and host your website for you. This as you know is the whole concept of outsourcing.
Since I began to write for EzineArticles, I have seen an appreciable flow of traffic to my free blog. This is the truth.
It has not translated to money for now. But I know sleep less at night and spend more time on my computer. Money comes after the price has been paid.
I must pay the price before success comes. It cannot be the other way round. This is the natural law.
Online business owners must outsource all or part of their businesses to other people, firm or corporate bodies.
But, the outsourcing agreement must be a win-win situation. Anything outside this will not work. Both sides must gain one way or the other.
As I will continue to say, any business that will not add value, solve a problem, reduce stress or increase pleasure for another person will not stand the test of time. It will grumble over time.
If you are involved in e-health, e-education, e-business, e-relationship, e-accounting, e-media, e-marketing, e-book publishing or e-marriage counseling, it is advisable to outsource part of your business.
I may be wrong. But I feel people who think they know it all and are not willing to share their knowledge, skill and talent with others and also work on specific projects with others are greedy.
With outsourcing, the world becomes a better place and people in developed and developing countries share with one another.
