Look, you know you need to outsource. But outsourcing doesn’t mean you have to pay for help and go broke. You CAN use an intern who will work for free in order to get more experience.
There are several tasks that can easily and, more importantly, help an intern gain valuable experience while giving you some much needed help. Here are just a few of them:
- Writing – For many people, writing is not a strong point in their business. Therefore, putting well written, action provoking content on their website is a difficult task. However, this is NOT an area to put to chance. The content on a website has a direct effect on search engine rankings. Copy that is neglected will show when it comes to a business’ bottom line. If you find it difficult to get the results you are looking for with your writing, consider finding a intern with good writing skills.
- Website Design – You know you need to put as much time and effort into your website as you would a brick and mortar store. Getting an attractive, easy to use website is not easy and you will find that there are talented interns who can do graphic design, web development or both. You’ll be able to rest assured that your website design is attractive and easy to navigate, which is always a plus for turning visitors into buyers.
- Search Engine Optimization – In order to rank high for your keywords and phrases, hiring a intern to research keywords and develop link building strategies will help to put you on the map. Search engine optimization, when done correctly, will increase the traffic to your website and is an easy way to get your business name out there for the entire world to see.
Outsourcing is something that every business owner, whether large or small, can do to help make their business more successful. Put the work in the hands of the experts and you can focus on the things that you enjoy and come easier to you.
