As a business owner, it can be tough to manage the ever-growing expectations of customers. Now more than ever, customers expect high-quality products and services, and they expect them quickly!
Delivering these results while managing the other aspects of your business can be challenging. Of course, the temptation is there to complete projects yourself, or to assign tasks to existing but untrained staff in an effort to cut costs. While it’s an understandable consideration, pulling your team away from their actual roles will see the quality of work suffer across the board, and taking too much time away from managing your staff and their needs is a sure-fire way to lower morale and result in higher staff turnover.
So what’s the solution when budgets are stretched and there never seems to be enough time to complete your workload? It may sound counterintuitive at first, but we think you’ll be surprised to find there are many benefits to outsourcing.
Isn’t it cheaper to do it myself?
On the surface, it would seem so, but when you think about the hours spent revising work that clients weren’t satisfied with, or the time spent correcting the mistakes of untrained staff, the true cost starts to reveal itself. Your customers expect a certain level of quality, and you’re short-changing both your customers and yourself by trying to take shortcuts. A specialist in their field will complete the work in a more reasonable timeframe, and chances are you’ll see a reduction in revisions too. Remember - happy customers are repeat customers!
I’m not sure where to start!
The best way to determine your needs is to look at what you currently offer – how do you attract your customers or clients, and what does your end-to-end process look like? Look for where you can trim some fat – what can be consolidated or removed, what is slowing you down, what do you realistically need to outsource and what can you improve on your own? Identify the positive and negative aspects of your customer experience, and find the processes that have led to the greatest profits for you and the greatest levels of satisfaction for your clients/customers.
