Smart Outsourcing to Help You Work On Your Business

Ten Free Videos Provide a Great Introduction to Outsourcing

In conversations I have from time to time with other people who work from home,  the distinction between working in their business and working on their business seems to be common parlance. I think it’s fair to say the most of us know why it is a good thing, actually a necessary thing, to aspire to working more on the business and much, much less in the business.

Getting all the ducks in a row, so as to achieve that, is another story.

Anyone who has read Tim Ferriss 4 Hour Work Week – is there anyone left who hasn’t? – knows that one of the ways we can move more into the “on the business” plane is by outsourcing things that others can do, more economically and often better than we can.

Many of us are also aware, from conversations with support desks if from no other source, that the Philippines has become a key provider of outsourced services at highly competitive prices.

And it’s not only telecoms companies and call-center providers who are outsourcing to the Philippines.  Many small and even micro businesses are doing so too.

I’m probably treading on a toe or three

On a previous occasion when I have written about outsourcing I have drawn some criticism on the basis – as far as I could figure out – that I was somehow encouraging people to use less than “quality assured” services. But if I can get quality services provided, within a budget and on terms that are reasonable for both parties,  from whatever country, I’ll feel ok about that.  After all, I’m in an international market myself, where some competitors charge a lot more than I do and some a lot less: it’s up to me to show I can provide value for money.

Mass Outsource

Here at our two person company we have been exploring the possibilities for outsourcing some of our business processes to the Philippines and we have spent some time and money doing that.

In that regard, one of our best investments, of time and of money, has been on a course and system developed by Tyrone Shum, under the heading of Mass Outsource Mastermind Program.

It has been and continues to be a good experience and definitely value for money.

For anyone interested, I would recommend taking advantage of the opportunity available just now to get access to ten free videos in which Tyrone explains how the outsourcing process works. It’s effectively a free e-course, which provides valuable, experience-grounded information about the outsourcing process and how it can liberate us to do the things we really want to do and which will reward us better.

In a world of fast-talking, over-promising “gurus”, Tyrone Shum is a refreshing change – his dedication to providing quality information, advice and support, quietly, thoroughly, is impressive. He doesn’t over-promise and he delivers generously. And I like that when he asks “Are there any more questions?” he means it – and welcomes the question.

Is this an affiliate linked post? You bet (see next para), but I’d be happy to do it anyway as I really respect what Tyrone has achieved and how he shares.

Here is the link to the free Mass Outsource video e-course.

  1. Operation Scar Review says:

    It seems like every Internet marketing blog I found always had a post about
    I’ve always wanted a step by step guide for outsourcing, but I just can find the right one.
    But I think I just find it thanks to you.

  2. @TelemarketingCompany Thank you. That’s a really important point you make and I confess it was not “front of mind” for me, that companies regularly outsource not just in the “not so central” functions but in, as you say, “areas previously considered critical core business functions”. That raises a whole other set of issues, especially in terms of customer service, or more broadly and from the obverse perspective, customer experience.

  3. The growth of outsourcing in some countries businesses has been explosive over the past couple of decades. Companies now regularly outsource in areas previously considered critical core business functions such as customer service, accounting, administrative work, programming, design, or even sales. Contributing to this growth is the use of technology, which enhances communication and allows teams to share data in a more efficient and productive way. In recent years, the use of technology has expanded to include electronic monitoring of outsource employees, occasionally in ways that have drawn criticism.
