I created a video series of outsourcing tips a few years back in Jonasblog.com. I did it because I wanted everyone to know how I did it and have a great experience in outsourcing.
Things were SO different back then. Most businesses had no idea what outsourcing was or how they could use it for their business. There weren’t a lot of business willing to take that risk.
Fast forward years later.
I’ve learned a lot since then, from my own experience and after talking to other people who have used outsourcing successfully. Looking back at that series, I saw that the advice I shared was pretty timeless. It just needed an update.
So now I’m bringing that series back, with new information I’ve learned over the years AND new resources I’ve developed with my team.
Tip # 1 : Daily Communication
We all know that communication is the key to a healthy relationship. More so when we’re talking about an employer-employee relationship that’s oceans apart.
I put an emphasis on daily, because you need to make sure that all of you are on the same page. The distance and time difference can cause hiccups, so it’s good to have some structure in place.
In this video, I’ll share with you:
- how I choose to communicate with my team,
- what my team uses for daily communication,
- what other people use for communication,
- what lack of communication might mean, and
- what we share in our daily communication.
I also share a very helpful tool that I use to communicate processes to my team.
