Outsourcing Made Simple
One of the questions I get most when it comes to my SEO projects is, “Do you have a staff that does all the less technical, time-consuming parts of Search Engine Optimization?”
I, of course, answer “Yes!”
Especially when talking to an SEO client. I tell them I have a staff of 14, from programmers to designers to link building personnel.
What they DON’T know is that I have NO employees.
After all, who wants to do all the payroll, the taxes, the insurance, the paperwork.
I have people that work for me, but they’re all overseas. And they’re in several different countries, depending on my needs.
When it comes to having full-time people doing the more mundane tasks that require excellent English skills, I choose the Phillipines. These are the workers that I have performing article marketing, web 2.0 management, and link building. They use all sorts of different techniques for building link reputation to my and my clients’ sites.
Keeping on top of this many people doing this many different things would appear to be a full time job in itself, but it is not.
It’s all about the tools.
I use a service that not only has a project management system in place to manage the many tasks and workers, it has worker training as well. Training in all the areas I use – article marketing, web 2.0 management, video promotions… everything. So the workers literally train themselves and get to work.
I tell ya… it’s working smart rather than hard. In fact, if I wanted to, I could probably limit my workday to 2 hours if I cared to.
How much do these employees cost?
Depending on the level of expertise, from $200 to $600 per month per worker. Yes, that’s full-time.
