  1. Hi!
    You’ve outdone yourself this time.
    This is probably the best, most concise step by step guide I’ve ever seen on how to build a successful blog.
    Thank you so much.

  2. If you’re outsourcing SEO but doing your paid promotion (PPC) in-house, make sure those two entities communicate regularly. The keyword data (impression volume, conversion rate, etc.) from your PPC can greatly assist your SEO efforts.

  3. For entrepreneurs who are running a small business, it’s quite challenging to handle all the tasks together. Many small businesses are not interested in outsourcing because of the additional costs. This reason makes them incapable of carrying out all the work with complete concentration and interest. The 5 tasks described above are more beneficial to outsource as opposed to carrying out on your own.

  4. You are amazing and well versed in what you teach. Not only do you share research, but also explain very well in depth. I gained much knowledge from it.
    Thanks for sharing.

  5. Content marketing is the use of easy-to-digest content that is designed to educate your target audience without being too “salesy.” The objective is to generate leads, but content also nurtures the relationships you have with those leads to improve your chances of closing a sale. Over 40 percent of companies have an executive in their organizations who is directly responsible for content marketing. Unfortunately, small businesses like yours may not have the budget for that. Rather than spending your time producing and distributing content, or hiring a marketing team to tackle it, I recommend outsourcing it.

  6. Yes, I do agree that all these 7 tasks should be outsourced by a company. Outsourcing can help you to focus more on your core task, and it will remove some burdens also. So I think it a great idea to outsource some of our tasks like administrative Tasks. Thanks for this post.
