CKSD Outsourcing Solutions research has found that workflow and process automation platforms can be found for businesses of all sizes, but process automation takes only so much of the load off for any business.
For a small business, any reduction in overhead lets you shift more revenue to operational growth, while simultaneously freeing up your time. We found that if your business chooses to outsource it can provide continuity, operational expense control, and risk management. It can also improve your work/life balance.
So here are five tasks you can be easily outsourced to contribute to the growth of your business while freeing up your time.
- Content marketing
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 are directly responsible for content marketing 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, CKSD Outsourcing Solutions recommends utilizing our services. According to a report by LinkedIn based on a survey of marketing professionals, 75 percent of marketers are outsourcing content in some way.
Research from the American Psychological Association shows that when you multitask or manage multiple projects at once, you can experience a 40 percent drop in productivity. Your projects take longer to complete, and you increase your overall stress levels.
On average, multitasking costs the global economy more than $400 billion annually.

There’s a lot you can do to improve your conversion rate, but it’s a time-consuming process. Depending on your business model and margins, even a small lift in conversions can add tens to hundreds of thousands or more in annual revenue.
Instead of trying to manage, test and track the continuous cycle of changes, you should work with CKSD Outsourcing Solutions we specialize in conversion optimization.
