Swamped with spreadsheets and agonizing over the admin? Here's why outsourcing your admin can make you happier - and your business more successful.
Running a business is hard, I get that. There are so many things you need to do each day. It's stressful, especially now, during the pandemic and as we approach closer to Christmas.
With that in mind, here are 3 reasons why you should outsource your admin today.
It gives you more time to concentrate on your customers:
“It feels like there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done, and you want to get back to doing the job you are passionate about.”
You didn't start a business to be stressing over paperwork - you started a business because of your love for your particular job, whether that is working as a self employed beauty therapist or a plumber. I understand running a business is hard - there are endless tasks that need doing, on top of all the admin that needs completing each day! It feels like there aren't enough hours in the day to get everything done, and you want to get back to doing the job you are passionate about. By outsourcing your admin and delegating the tasks that drain your energy and take up all your time, it gives you more hours in the day to concentrate on your customers or spend time with your family. No more evenings sat in front of the computer!
It saves you money:
Employing an in-house administrator is expensive. Not only do you have to pay for their equipment, you have to pay for their holiday pay, sick pay and pension. When you outsource your admin - you only pay for the hours worked. I have my own office, computer, printer and phone. I pay my own tax, NI and pension. Outsourcing your admin is extremely cost-effective and can save you money in the long run. I'm already trained and experienced in admin, so you only pay for the jobs you need doing.
It can reduce your stress:
“By delegating to someone more experienced and specially trained in admin, you can have peace of mind knowing the tasks will get done, and to an extremely high standard.”
When you first started your business, you never dreamed your days would be filled up doing all the paperwork, and doing it all by yourself can actually be more detrimental to your stress and happiness levels. By delegating to someone more experienced and specially trained in admin, you can have peace of mind knowing the tasks will get done, and to an extremely high standard. One of my previous roles was in quality assurance as an analyst, so I know how important quality is! You can go about your day knowing I've got it sorted. I'll always keep you updated on the status of my work and we will agree a timescale together before starting any work - so you'll know when it will be complete by! You can go home and stress less, knowing I'm handling it for you; you don't have to work yourself up over tasks you hate doing anymore.
