When it comes to outsourcing…
You’re Ready to Hire a Content VA
It’s time to start outsourcing—but don’t worry, you can start small with a Content VA to gradually start outsourcing some of the “busy work” that comes along with content marketing (think: scheduling, designing Canva images). While you’re still the main content creator in your biz, you’re ready to free up time to do more of the things that only you can do.
HOW YOU KNOW
All or Some of The Following Describe Your Current Content Sitch
You know that trying to keep doing everything yourself is only stopping you from growing
Plus, you feel like you keep running out of time when it comes to executing your content plan, putting off your launch plans and working on those projects you know will pay off big
You’re comfortable with the idea of paying someone for 1-5 hours a week, for now, to help with your content (as long as it’s the right person)
However, you’re feeling a little overwhelmed on where to start when it comes to finding and hiring the right person
Where to Focus Your Efforts First
At this phase, it’s time to start getting your business ‘Content-VA-Ready’ by making sure your content processes are documented, templates are set up and you have checklists or walkthroughs for everything you’d like to delegate.

#1 – Document your content process from top to bottom
Go through your content creation, publishing and promotion process from start to finish to make sure you’re set for handing over a well-documented workflow to your new hire.
Remember that the main goal of this hire is to “clone yourself” and add more time back into your day to focus on higher-value tasks (like strategy, networking, sales, etc.) so take the time to be as detailed as possible with your systems.
#2 – Find the Right Person
After your systems are in tip-top shape, now you’re ready to move on to finding and onboarding the right person. Start by designing the position, then craft the job offer and then evaluate and onboard your top pick.
