Work less, make more. Possible?

I wanted to talk with you, regarding outsourcing.

If you want your business to progress faster…to grow, be more professional whilst saving time and money, you’ll need to pay close attention.

Being able to grow a team of professional, reliable & cost effective employees within the click of a button is VITAL. It’s the #1 way most people shoot up the success ranks so fast!

Does the term ‘outsourcing’ mean anything to you? It is extremely essential for any business to outsource things such as web design, graphics, sales copy, sales videos, and the list goes on and on. Finding the best people is just as important.

My friend Craig Crawford did exactly this! Within two years his business has been responsible for over $2,000,000 in sales as a vendor and as an affiliate.

Craig generated $80,000 within the first month of his business and he barely had to lift a finger!

He relied mainly on outsourcing for this and has shot up the ranks within business! Literally from 0 to hero in a matter of months…

The best thing of all, being able to outsource saves you time and money!

So what we’re showing you, is something HIGHLY beneficial to EVERY SINGLE person who reads this.

Craig is revealing to you the #1 thing that helps his business run so effectively and so freely on the next page!

Go take a look now, and if you’re fast enough, you’ll get the free bonus training program they’re giving away!

When it comes to Internet marketing, there is a whole slew of vendors who work incredibly cheaply.

For instance, one gal, a fitness expert, offered to write a 500-word article for $30.

If I hired her, I would not pay her $30. I would pay her anywhere from $100 to $200.

Here’s the main reason: When you find people desperate enough to work for peanuts…

Or you squeeze a vendor and get him to lower his price to the bare minimum…

Those people don’t feel good about working for you, because they are not making a fair wage.

As a result, most of these underpaid freelancers resent their clients.

They also try to complete the job as fast as they can, so they will make a little more per hour.

Result: they rush their work, not putting much care in it. And this shows in the inferior finished product.

Once, as an experiment, I hired a cheap writer from elance to write an article on careers in chemistry for my chemistry website.

His first sentence

It’s no secret that whether around the house or in my business, I am no fan of do-it-yourself.

From tax return preparation to website design, I would much rather hire a professional for several reasons.

First, the pro will do it much better than I would. If they could not, I would hire someone else who could.

Second, the pro will do it faster than I can, because she has done it dozens or hundreds of times before.

Third, using the pro saves me time and actually makes me money by allowing me to focus on my core business activities: researching, writing, and thinking for my clients.

The late, great direct mail guru Dick Benson had a similar attitude. He said to do only what you do best in-house, and outsource everything else.

When freelance copywriters ask me what software or templates to use in building their websites, I tell them, “Stop wasting your time and hire a professional website designer!”

My go-to web designer tells clients who come to her after trying to design their own site themselves the following story: “When we bought our first house, we had a minor leak, and my husband went to Home Depot and bought, in his words, a ‘Mamma wrench.’ The thing was huge.

“After the flood was cleaned up, the plumber said to him, ‘I love guys like you.'”

Amy and I had a similar situation. We hired JL, a lanky, gray-haired tile guy who had 40 years of experience to retile our bathroom. Amy started to tell him the ‘right’ way to tile based on an episode of This Old House she had watched. JL turned to her and said kindly, “Miss, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.”

The experienced vendor has been doing the task you need done for years or decades. What gives you the illusion that you can do it as well or as fast?

I haven’t mowed grass or raked leaves on our lawn in decades. The reason is simple arithmetic: I earn per hour 10 times what my leaf guy charges. Every hour I pay him $25, I can be at my desk earning $250 or more per hour.

Also, raking leaves bores the bejesus out of me, as do bookkeeping, tax preparation, programming (and I have forgotten most of my FORTRAN and BASIC), and a dozen other tasks. Outsourcing helps me avoid boredom and have fun doing what I love to do, which is writing.

You can be lazy but also smart if you do this.

Why I Hate Fiverr by Bob Bly

Posted October 19th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Outsourcing

There’s a site, fiverr, that promises they can find you a freelancer or service provider to do lots of things you need

One of the biggest questions I hear from visionary entrepreneurs is about how someone can get all the maddening technical details of their business implemented, and still have enough time for the more creative, fun and generative aspects of their business…

…not to mention creating a balanced and wonderful life!

Websites, blogs, autoresponders, newsletters, customer service, research, admin tasks, etc., etc., etc…

The list goes on and on of tasks that need to get done every day to build a business.

If you’re nodding your head in agreement because you’re stuck on something, or just not getting it done as fast as you want, then go here now!

I’m going to introduce you to a friend of mine, Ric Thompson, and he’s going to share some things with you that can directly impact the speed and ease of getting things done via a very special (and short!) video JUST for friends and clients of mine.

This is for you if:

* You have more work than week to get it done (even if you already have a small team)

If for any reason you’re not getting things done fast enough and enjoying real results, Done For You Solutions could really help.

OutVeoBrian Terry was running a web graphics design service until he simply couldn’t manage all the work coming in by himself.

He listened the common guru advice of outsourcing…which made a lot of sense at the time.

* He hired website designers to take on the design work

* he hired help desk experts to keep his customers happy

* he even hired link building technicians to get me more traffic

Sounds good so far right?

** WRONG! **

The gurus left out one of the most important secrets…

While Brian hired all these other people, he actually made MORE WORK for himself.

And if you outsource the way the gurus teach you, you can end up in this same situation.

Here’s what happens to many online businesses searching for success (maybe even yours?)…

1. Your business grows
2. You add outsourced workers
3. More business comes in
4. Rinse and repeat.

Until all the stress drives you insane! The house of cards comes crashing down.

Outsourcing sucks when you do it all wrong…

To save his sanity Brian scaled his business down and went back to doing everything himself again.

Sure he didn’t make as much money or see the same level of success, at least he wasn’t working so many hours.

Ever since then he’s been looking for a solution to outsourcing because he knew with the right system he could make the same excellent profits again and spend more time with his family.

2 years ago he made his biggest business breakthrough ever…

He finally solved the outsourcing problem that had plagued him for years with this simple yet ingenious solution.

If you’re not outsourcing yet, you should be.

If you’re already outsourcing, you need this.

Read what other enlightened customers have to say:

“There is NO other (even) similar script offered online that is SO tailored to this subject.”

Outsourced Profits

If you have been considering outsourcing some or all of your business tasks, you’re not alone.

Unfortunately, there are so many people out there who go about it all the wrong way.

In order to really benefit from outsourcing at all, you need to know how to find the right people to outsource to in the first place.

Not all freelance workers are the same, so it’s very important to choose people who can actually help you grow your business the right way.

Of course, once you have located the right people to outsource to, you also need to think about training them to work exactly the way you like things done.

These things aren’t difficult, but you could end up getting burned if you do these things the wrong way.

Imagine how much more fun your day could be if you could dump half of your workload right now?

If you learn to leverage your outsourcing efforts properly, you really could launch your business to the next level.

Outsourcing Tips You Can Use Right Away

Posted February 12th, 2012 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Outsourcing

Outsourcing has become a critical component to successful Internet businesses because with it one can easily scale up their business by getting other people to handle tasks that take up a lot of time. Even though you will have to pay for every task you outsource, if managed properly you will see astounding returns.

An office and hiring employees usually incurs additional costs which is why outsourcing is so popular. This article will provide you with 3 strategies that will aid you in outsourcing projects.

The first thing you need to do before hiring someone for your project is to look over their samples and their portfolio. You can

We’re winding down the year 2011…

I hope you and your business had a very productive, great 2011 this year.

Hopefully, you reached all the goals that you set out to reach.

If you didn’t reach all of your goals it’s probably because you spread yourself too thin, or didn’t pick ONE promising project and only focus on that until completion.

Too many entrepreneurs wait until things are

The Internet changes fast. Very fast.

Business models that are having success one day can be gone the next.

So let’s talk about what’s still working as of December 2011…


E-books, How-To videos, membership sites. Whether it’s teaching someone how to learn karate, build their own organic garden, or trade the Forex markets, people will always be willing to pay for information especially if it saves them the time to try and find it themselves and/or presents the information in a unique way.

The “Publishing” industry has been around for a very long time, and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. It will simply evolve.

We’re seeing a major ‘shift’ away from physical info-products (DVDs, printed manuals, etc.) and more products moving towards ALL DIGITAL

3 years after starting my first successful online e-commerce store, I was exhausted, overwhelmed, frustrated and underpaid! Thanks to the original Stomping the Search Engines course, my website was ranking in the top 10 for most all of the major keywords we went after and sales were through the roof!

Unfortunately, this meant that I spent most waking hours answering the phones, e-mailing orders to vendors, and updating the website with new products and sales! This left little to no time for marketing and almost no time for sleep during our peak season. The site soon became a source of conflict, and I began to wonder if this was the entrepreneurial dream that I had signed up for!

But I have learned some tips about virtual teams and systems for your business that helped my business and they can help yours.


One of the very first and important business tips I learned was that I needed to out-task. As long as I was answering the phones and processing orders, my business could not grow. Basically the premise is that if you can pay someone minimum wage to do a task and you choose to do that task, you are earning minimum wage. A good idea is to make a daily “To Do” list, and examine what you are spending your time on. If there are tasks on the list that are not generating income or making your business run more effectively, those tasks need to be out-tasked to someone else.

Systematize everything

If your business is dependent on you, you will never be able to take a vacation or enjoy the reasons you became a business owner in the first place. Create How To guides and manuals for each area of your business. This is a gradual process and not something that you do once only to forget about it. Set up your business processes and when there is a breakdown and an employee or contractor has to come seeking your approval or advice, update your business processes.

Set specific goals and tasks for everyone on your team

Have a weekly meeting and discuss the pending tasks and any issues that have arisen with those tasks. Always praise in public and criticize in private. Take this time to give positive feedback and to deal with any problems. Many times employees don’t bring problems to management because they think it is their responsibility to try to figure it out themselves. Such initiative is often good, but other times, there are problems that we as management have already dealt with and we can provide a simple solution in about 20 seconds!

Teach your team to out-task and supervise others

To be successful you will need a core team that supports you and can work effectively to get projects done with little to no input or guidance from you. If your team is not functioning, it’s your responsibility as the business owner to set up systems and procedures so that they can be successful. Everything does rise and fall on leadership. If you have great team member, but he or she is not able to give up some of their responsibilities and supervise others, then you cannot grow. One person can never do it all. Teach them to assign tasks to junior team members and how to effectively supervise their junior team members so that their time is freed up doing more productive things.

Have 2 people for each job

Although this may seem impossible in the beginning when finances are tight, as soon as possible, always have two people for every job. When out-tasking projects overseas, unexpected problems happen. Hurricanes (especially in the Philippines), power outages, kids get sick, and so on. By having 2 people trained for every task, you ensure that you won’t have to renege on the responsibilities you have already trained others to take over.

These are just a few tips that I have used in my business. As a mom of 7 children, a wife and a missionary, my life is busy. Your life is busy as well, so you can’t afford to not add what you can to make your business run easier and automatically.


  • Out-Task.
  • Systematize everything.
  • Set specific goals and tasks for everyone on your team.
  • Teach your team to out-task and supervise others.
  • Unexpected things happen, so make certain you have 2 people for each job.

Extracted from StomperNet SEO Intelligence Report, November 18, 2011.

Last week I went traveling on a month long vacation. Part of what enabled me to do this for a whole month was knowing that my business is in the good capable hands of my two project managers!

Most business owners only require a few staff members to execute their online marketing. It usually begins with a writer. A link builder or publisher soon follows. And eventually a full-time webmaster and graphic designer come in handy. It is much easier to get things done quickly when your virtual staff is on-demand to your projects and you don’t have to continually look for and train new people.

Pretty soon five or more virtual workers are reporting to you and all looking for their next assignment! This soon becomes a full-time job for you! Instead of outsourcing or out-tasking becoming an easy thing that frees up your time, your virtual staff require new projects, feedback about their current assignments, or help resolving roadblocks on their current tasks.

It is time for a project manager!

A project manager can usually not be hired, but rather someone that you can train from within your company. One tip here: When looking to hire a project manager or to train someone to eventually become your project manager, look for someone that knows English and Excel. The workers that are experienced in SEO, link building, and writing, are not necessarily the best for the position of project manager. A project manager does not even have to know a lot about SEO in the beginning. Their job is to follow up with your staff and make sure the work is being completed on time. They also act as an intermediary and trouble shoot any problems that arise.

When your team grows to sufficient size to warrant it, you will soon find that there are not enough hours in the day for your project managers to get things done! When that happens it is time to teach them to delegate! Developing leaders within your organization is not as easy as it sounds. Not all people can delegate easily and not all workers can supervise effectively other workers. Just because your project manager can supervise and manage five people does not mean they can supervise and manage 30. Also the team that you build in the beginning of your business may not be the team you need to build your business further.

Time to Develop Team Leaders

Just as you took the time to develop your project manager, it is now time to develop your team leaders! A team leader has a variety of responsibilities including hiring and firing new workers. This is tricky as this is something even your project manager may not have done before!

Once your organization reaches a certain level, spending time hiring, interviewing, and training new workers is not the best of the business owner’s time. You can have a team leader for writers, a team leader for web assistants or publishers, and a team leader for your webmasters and graphic designers. The team leader should be a member of the team also. In other words, your team leader for writers should also be a writer themselves so that they understand all of the procedures that need to be followed.

When you are looking for new team leaders look for workers with initiative. Workers you can trust. On the day I left for my month long vacation my project manager and a web assistant organized a meeting with 14 of our writers.

The web assistant was getting frustrated with the writers not following procedures and she asked permission to organize a meeting to talk to all of them about exactly what the web assistants needed from the writers so that they could more easily do their jobs. The meeting was a huge success with a lot of participation from all and the best part about it was that I did not have to do anything. My participation was not needed or required!

If you are ready to take your business to the next level, the next step is usually to get systems and procedures in place so that you can outsource or out-task some of your routine duties. Remember, if you can pay someone x amount of dollars to do that task, and you choose to do that task, then you are earning that x amount of dollars!

If you are on the fence about outsourcing, now is the time to get off! Make a decision that you will build your virtual dream team of workers so that you can get more done faster!

FACT: Outsourcing and hiring people is a sign that your company is growing.

BIG PROBLEM: The following are problems people face when outsourcing:

Loss of Full Control – Yes, when you hire someone, they will do as you instruct; but they may not do it exactly as you do it. It will take some training, but in the end, if you stick with them, they will be loyal to you and grow your company.

Threat to Security – When you hire someone, they may have access to your passwords and such, and that is one of the reasons why people don’t hire…but guess what? You are lying to yourself for not expanding your business.

The biggest lie is: “Outsourcing will solve ALL your problems.”

Wrong! It will not solve all your problems, but it can solve a lot of them. But you have to know what you are doing. You can’t jump in with two feet, without knowing anything, or else you lose money and lots of time.

That’s where this video series comes in…
