When it comes to outsourcing…
You’re Ready to Expand Your Team
You’ve already got a team member or two – but are ready to start outsourcing bits and pieces of your content process even more. Even though you see yourself continuing to handle the core content creation (they are your ideas and voice, after all), you know that by having a dedicated Content VA or Marketing Coordinator, you’ll free up even more time for scaling up or stepping away (or both!)
HOW YOU KNOW
All or Some of The Following Describe Your Current Content Sitch
You already have a team member or 2 but are ready to start outsourcing even more
But you’re not quite ready to hand over core content creation (these are your ideas so you want to see them through from idea to finished post, episode or video)
You’ve had bouts of being consistent with content in the past and you know how good things get when you’re putting out great content on the regular, but still, trying to do too much yourself is screwing with your ability to get and stay consistent
You see yourself as the one creating the content and doing the final quality control checks but outsourcing most of the rest
Where to Focus Your Efforts First
At this phase, it’s time to start getting intentional about who you’re going to bring into your business to help, what your own role is going to be and what type of support you’re gonna need to hit your next business goals.
“Do what you do best, and outsource the rest.”
– Peter Drucker
#1 – Map out your content dream team
Get a clear idea on what your *dream* content strategy looks like – what would you do if you had more time or expertise? Then make a list of what you want to spend your own time on content-wise. Everything else is what you’re hiring for.
With that in hand, map out your content dream team including what positions you need in place and what those folks will be doing (check out the blog post below in the resources section for inspiration).
#2 – Find the Right Person
After you’re clear on who you want to hire, decide on whether you want an all-in-one team or want to hire each position individually. If hiring one by one is the road you want to take, check out the resources below for my complete hiring process and Content VA hiring spreadsheet template.
