Blog

Even if you’re a casual blogger, you want as many people as possible to read your content.

As bloggers grow their reach and engagement, it’s quite popular to see their websites turning into a business.

Similarly, some companies step into the blogosphere to interact and bring added value to their customers.

Whichever your case is, you don’t have to do everything your own.

Social Media

Who isn’t active in the social media these days?

Even my mom is!

Of course that there’s a major difference between using it casually or to promote your content, product, and services.

Either way, you can still get some help so that you have more time for the things that you, and only YOU, can do.

I got some ideas for you:

  1. Social bookmarking
  2. Social media commenting
  3. Content curation
  4. Social media management

How to delegate to improve your efficiency

Now that we have talked about “what” you can delegate, let’s think of ways you can do it.

Family members and relatives 

Even if you live alone, there’s no harm in having some relatives stopping by to lend you a hand.

Married couples can count on their partner and children too.

And you shouldn’t feel guilty for asking their help.

It’s normal that everyone contributes to making home a great place.

Take away the obligation aspect and make it something natural, mainly for the little ones.

It’s a win-win situation!

Friends

Everyone has their specialty. So do your friends.

Why not asking their assistance?

Maybe you can exchange responsibilities. Because you have your specialties too.

It can be in business or for household tasks.

Peers

Like yourself, there are MANY entrepreneurs out there in need of help, but also willing to help you achieve success.

In the traditional job market too.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help.

The worst that can happen when you suggest swapping tasks with someone is that they’ll say no.

It’s not the end of the world!

VAs

The variety of services Virtual Assistants (VAs) offer is huge.

You don’t have to own a business to consult one.

A VA can help you organize your personal life as well.

And all that without breaking your budget.

Certified professionals

When you need assistance with a very specific area of your life, investing in a (certified) professional is key to your success.

For example, you can find great meal planning ideas online. But what about one designed specifically for you, your family, and your goals?

There are excellent books on planning and productivity, aren’t there? Yet, none of them substitute a personalized approach customized to your needs and struggles.

Coaches and consultants can also help you find other tasks you can delegate and guide you through the process depending on their area of expertise.

Why wasting time and energy trying when you can get things done?
