Contingent Workers You Should Have On Your Team
Sounds like a strange thing to say – Contingent workers are people you really need on your ‘team’ especially when you have a pretty time schedule.
But the truth is that you probably have a lot of skills in a lot of different areas – some not as strong as others. However, when you become pressed for time because you are working on a scheduled project, or with clients, outsourced employees are ideal.
Here are a few job specs that you should have in your talent pool team. They will always be handy and are always value for money.
1. Virtual Assistant
Like you, but double. Depending on what you do, it will change what you give them as a workload.
If you run a blog or are a content creator, the first place you are likely to need back-up is your social media. Running any kind of business will need research support, data input, email management, organization and more.
The last thing you need to be doing is spending those billable hours working out your finances.
Although in the early days, it makes sense. Beyond that, having bookkeeping services will make the whole process much easier for you to handle.
Pretty much all businesses are producing content in the form of blog posts, eBooks and other downloads. If you have a few ideas, a copywriter can mimic your style.
It makes sense to field this out if you don’t have the time to write it all yourself. Fresh content on your website as often as possible is a must.
If you don’t provide blog posts, then having a well-written copy and product descriptions are very valuable tools. Both are for SEO purposes.
4. Social Media Manager
Sometimes people want more dedicated team members, so while the virtual assistant can do the job, and very well, perhaps you like to give more directed tasks.
They will be able to put together and then implement campaigns that will span over months. Using their specialist knowledge to provide you with the best bang for your buck.
Many of the most significant people in business will turn to a business coach to keep them on track. It might be that you need a firmer direction, it could be that you want to branch out and need to explore your options with a great sounding board.
For guidance and useful information and advice. Find a coach that has the experience of your field – and learn from it.
6. Lead Generation Professional
Aside from the tools that you probably have in a place like Mailchimp or ConvertKit, having someone who is dedicated to research and lead gen is really a time saver.
They will be able to provide you with all of the insights you are going to need for putting your strategies together.
The information that they compile is typically of high value, but you won’t need to do this often, because the experts really go in-depth – so you’ll have plenty to work on.
I hope this helps you!
