3 business ideas to outsource to local vendors and grow your business

Owning a business is more than just selling a product or a service. There are many moving parts but, thankfully, you don’t need to do all of them yourself. In fact, you shouldn’t! You can outsource specific tasks to other local businesses that specialize in that type of work. 


Outsourcing is the perfect solution for businesses of any size for three main reasons:

  1. It saves you time. You won’t have to do those menial or specialized tasks again. You can focus your time on where you need to grow your business. 
  2. It saves you money. Many outsourceable tasks require special software, or equipment and training to use them. Outsourcing these tasks to a local business who already has these will save you money!
  3. It saves you the hassle. Yes, you could try to figure it out yourself, or ask your staff to figure it out. But why bother with that hassle when someone knowledgeable in that area is next door? 


By adding outsourcing to your business model as appropriate, everyone does what they excel in and everything gets done faster and more accurately! 

If you’re considering outsourcing in your business, here are three areas you can start with.

Professional Scanning: It’s hardly a surprise that we mention this because it’s what we do. It’s not efficient to do this in-house when you consider the extra costs associated with purchasing professional scanning equipment, training staff to use it, and the time and wages lost when you use your own internal staff to do the scanning. 

It’s a much better investment of your time and budget to outsource this to a professional document scanning company

Marketing: Marketing is a critical part of how you will find and attract clients and customers to your business. If it’s not done right, you won’t be putting out the right messaging or attracting the right people and this can cost you business. If you truly want to scale your business, look at seeking the help of a local marketing agency or freelancer to help create plans and execute marketing activities. 

Administrative tasks: You probably already have an admin team working in your office. But, for times when a big project comes up or you need an extra set of hands, outsource to a temp agency who can bring in the expertise and extra hands you need, so your current staff can focus on their day-to-day jobs and not get pulled in different directions.
