We all have our strengths and weaknesses and it seems in this day of increased internet business and online interaction, a strength in English and writing is a definite advantage. For the rest, the latest trend in writing programs must seem like a God-send. But for those who have or might succumb to the temptation of wasting their hard earned dollar on such a program, it might be prudent to remember this: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The number of programs promising to write your articles for you and rewrite the same article for you and distribute it online is growing, but I've yet to come across one that is worth the money. Here's why.
If you are like me, you receive a large number of emails every day. You may also have more than one inbox. After all, your Social Media accounts have private messaging as well. Facebook and LinkedIn have inboxes. Twitter has DMs. There are messages bombarding you from everywhere you can imagine. If you have a personal email account, that is just another inbox to manage in your busy day. Outsourcing your business email to your Virtual Assistant will allow you the freedom you need to work on the money-making areas of your business. You can do more teleseminars, host more live events, sign more clients, create more information products, and even offer more group coaching programs.
So we are told that IT heads are keeping the faith in outsourcing (survey computer week) despite the sight of bedraggled refinery workers picketing outside factory gates carrying placards with 'British Jobs for British Workers'. A slight whiff of fear is evident in the Outsource market as the implications of what these workers were saying quickly sunk in. What they were complaining about was not just about jobs being given to others but the way it was being done - using labour arbitrage - i.e. cheap labour in a situation not too dissimilar to the 'globalisation' of the IT services market. This is where executives scour the world to save a few cents on labour cost and when the advantage is gone move onto the next cheap site of well disciplined labour.
The word "bargain" relates to the price of something; specifically a low price. What about "value"? And what about a distinction between the two? Are these words significant in the application to business services we delegate to freelancers? Bargain. Value. Hmmmm. Lord Byron had a few thoughts on the subject of bargains: "A bargain is in its very essence a hostile transaction. Do not all men try to abate the price of all they buy? I contend that a bargain even between brethren is a declaration of war." It sounds like Lord Byron spoke from experience. Why else would he be so impassioned? "Hostile transaction. Declaration of war." Those are strong words. When hiring pros to make their valuable contribution to the success of our businesses, rarely do we look for a bargain.
Offshore Outsourcing in the Philippines was not welcomed with open arms by some Filipinos during its debut in the first days of the year 2000.

Outsourcing for customer service is one of the ways in which businesses can cut capital costs, increase efficiency, and can provide a degree of flexibility in the size and functionality of their customer service team. However, unlike other "peripheral" business functions which might be more easily outsourced, such as programming, web development, bookkeeping, or administrative functions, outsourcing your call center carries risk, because contractors will speak directly to your customers. For a business that intends to be customer-focused, this means that certain cautions should be taken when outsourcing for customer service. When looking at outsourcing providers, top consideration should be given to the reputation and the depth of skilled resources that the provider has.
