Upwork the Tedious Tasks

Recently an entrepreneur was looking for ideas for a virtual assistant to help with several projects. After asking a few questions, it became clear that using Upwork for freelancers was a quicker, more efficient route. Instead of hiring a person with general skills for a set number of hours per week, hire specialists per project.

Here are a few common outsourcing projects for entrepreneurs:

  • Data entry / list building – Build a list of target contacts
  • Copywriting – Capture your ideas and transform them into content
  • Editing – Take your content and polish it
  • General help – Offload the basics that are better done elsewhere

Entrepreneurs would do well to outsource the non-core tasks and use a freelancer marketplace like Upwork.

What else? What are some more tasks entrepreneurs should outsource?
