My Favorite Outsourcers
today's Q&A session I'll reveal seven of my favorite outsourcing
solutions. For a five-spot these pros will do your niche research, your
link building, your WordPress install, your squeeze page, your
member site setup, and more...
Jim, I want an online business but I always get stuck on niche
research. Is there a way to get that done for me so I can jump right
into a profitable niche?
A: Believe it or not, you can outsource niche
research. Here's an expert I've been using
that will do all your niche research, including finding the best
keywords to build your site around and even some great domain name
choices, all for $5. Talk about a bargain!
Jim, I struggle with technology. I've tried to set up a site in the
and it came out looking terrible. Can you do it for me?
A: While I do not offer web design services
personally, my new
ezWebBusinessBuilder2.com walks you through how to set up a site using
WordPress, which is
free. You can even pay someone else to set it up for you. Here's an expert who will do it
for $5. Crazy, right?
I realize it is important to have lots
of helpful content at my site
but I hate writing. Can I outsource that?
A: Absolutely! While I write all my own articles
for this site, I outsource lots of writing in other niches I
work in. This saves me countless hours of work. I like to use this
site to get my niche articles, but you can also get
lots of great, original content at fiverr.com. Just be sure to screen
the gigs by rating so you hire only the best writers.
Jim, I've followed you through the years and I'm
finally starting to realize the importance of building my own email
list. The problem is, I am lost when it comes to creating
emails and such. Can I outsource something like that?
A: Believe it or not, you can! I'm glad to hear
that you finally understand the major importance that list building
holds. If you
struggle with autoresponders and email marketing, you can hire this expert to take care of
as much of it as you want.
It looks like I need a video
nowadays, but don't even know where to start. Instead of going through
the long learning curve can I just utsource the whole thing?
A: No worries. Another easy outsource. Video is one
of my weak spots too. Yet I was able to put this
video online simply by writing a script and recording the
audio into a free iphone app called Recorder Plus. Then I sent it to this "Prezi" expert who created
the presentation for $80 and sent me the MP4 video for my site. (I
could have had it done for $10 if I wasn't so long
and it's true that video converts much better than long sales copy.
Jim, I've heard that video squeeze pages convert as high as 25% and
higher, is that true? And if so, how can I get one set up quickly and
A: Yes, it's true. Video squeeze pages can convert
a very high percentage of visitors into subscribers. The page needs to
be clean and the video needs to be something your niche is passionate
about learning. If you hit those two targets you can easily see
conversion rates of 25% and sometimes much higher. While building a
video squeeze page can be time consuming, you can outsource the task here for just
Q: Jim, I want to
start a membership site
but the technical hurdle has been holding me
back. Can I outsource that kind of thing.
A: Ummm. Yep. Here's a guy who will take your
copy of WishList Member and set everything up for you. He'll do the
basic install for $5 and for an extra fee he will even set up your
membership levels, integrate with your payment processor, your
autoresponders and more.
Q: Jim, while I
realize the importance of tasks such as link building and social media
management, I rarely find time to work in these areas. Do you know
anyone who can do this stuff for me at a reasonable fee?
A: Yes! Those are indeed important tasks
that most marketers put on the back burner. Here's a virtual assistant you can
hire for two hours of link building, social media management and much
more. His fee? You guessed it... $5. He does an awesome job and you can
hire him as often as you need to.
