If you think about outsourcing a small or a larger chunk of your business, you may be worried about what happens when outsourcing goes wrong. After all, I’m sure you’ve heard horror stories about large amounts of money that had been lost by people who attempted to outsource, how things don’t work out the way they planned. That’s certainly possible but by taking some simple precautions, you can make sure that you don’t turn out to be one of the hard luck stories.  You can make sure that you end up with a good result at the end of the outsourcing process.

Are Your Old Blog Posts Working For You?

One of the changes taking place in the product launch marketplace I’ve observed over the last few years has been the growth of the use of affiliate bonuses for product launches. As a customer, they often make a difference over whether I buy a new product, and which affiliate I purchase it from. As a seller, they make a big difference to the number of people who buy through my affiliate link instead of a competitor, and so can impact on my financial bottom line.

Indeed, many people who are launching products now strongly suggest their affiliates provide bonuses to people who buy through their link. And, many affiliates respond. I’ve seen bonus packages for high ticket items where the value of the bonus far eclipses the material provided in the main package – and which could easily allow that affiliate to make a high value launch of their own.

But, bonuses aren’t just limited to high ticket items. Some affiliates provide bonuses for products that sell for just a few dollars. Personally, I tend to stay away from bonuses in those cases. For me, the effort required, and the potential loss of a product launch of my own, far outweighs any value to be had from additional sales. It can also create an expectation that you will provide affiliate bonuses with your customers (who then only buy from you when you do offer a bonus). Read the rest of this entry

Often on my blog, I’ve talked about how you can work as a writer in order to make money. I quite enjoy doing writing work for other people as I enjoy writing, although nowadays I prefer to write for myself. But, it may surprise you to know that I also outsource writing work to others. Not for this blog or for any of the main places you might associate me with, but particular for niche sites or where I publish under a pen name.

If you’re not particularly keen on writing and you just have a large amount which needs to be completed, you may have decided the most cost effective strategy for you is to outsource your writing needs rather than trying and complete the work yourself. This can be a very valid strategy depending on your particular needs. Read the rest of this entry
