Know What You Don’t Know: The 30-Day Blog Challenge, Day 20Posted by Jessica Oman
And you gotta outsource. You really do. The stuff you’re not good at or don’t understand, don’t have time for, or don’t enjoy can all be outsourced.
You’ve probably read endless blog posts that recommend all kinds of tools and resources to help you grow your business – both online and off. Loaded with affiliate links, these posts often don’t say much more than a pre-written blurb about the project with a link to the web site. That doesn’t mean the tools aren’t useful; any blogger with integrity will only recommend products they’ve either used or really trust.
So I’m not going to create a list for you; I’m just going to talk about FancyHands. If you’re not quite sure whether you need a Virtual Assistant or not, I think this is the perfect way to find out. FancyHands uses a subscription model that gives you a certain number of tasks each month – so if you’re looking for a cheap hotel in Austin, or you need a meeting scheduled in Toronto, or turn a product review into a recommendation, FancyHands can help.
We’re going to try it out for a few months and see how it works for us. It’s for all those times we’re sitting at our desks and suddenly wondering what it would cost to travel to San Francisco for a conference. Or need to find a new dog groomer. Stuff that doesn’t take too long but does take up valuable time we could be spending helping our clients.
I haven’t included FancyHands‘ referral link because I’m still new to the service. Have you tried FancyHands? What online tool do you use to manage your time and outsource these kinds of tasks?
