Episode 10: How to outsource the right wayThe Huddle podcast - Small talk for big business | Online Marketing | Business Strategy add
Welcome to the 10th episode of The Huddle podcast with Ceri Gillett and Aby Moore.
Today is all about Outsourcing.
Outsourcing scares people, as they think it’s going to cost a lot. People also think that they can do it themselves, so maybe they should just keep doing it themselves..
Often people don’t like investing before they are making money in their business.
You either pay with your time or your money
For it to be a business you have to treat it like a business.
You couldn’t even start a hobby without investing in something.
2 main issues:Finding someone Then loosening the reins enough to let someone help you.
We chat about bartering and getting started on Fiverr to dip your toes on the outsourcing water!
We have both had various things done from people at Fiverr - logos, editing, graphics, jingles, research for blog posts.
Outsourcing can be such a weight off your shoulders.
What we outsource - social media scheduling, engagement, graphics, research, running groups.
Strategic things we will do ourselves.

Episode 8: Our 3 must-have tools you need for your online bizThe Huddle podcast - Small talk for big business | Online Marketing | Business Strategy add
In today’s episode we are going to be listing 3 things that we highly rate, our top 3 told you need to help you start or grow your online business.
1) Good theme for your website. We love a pretty theme and often get pretty over functional. It doesn’t have to cost the earth.
2) The business generation model book - Over 20 top level business minds combined the best parts of business planning from their lived experience and they created this crazy plan that works.
3) Now you have a site, you might have traffic, you now need a way to capture that traffic. You need an email list! Therefore an email marketing provider is vital. I use Convertkit (* Aff), so I can tag and segment them to make sure each subscriber gets content specifically for them.
4) So you've got planned and then, then i feel you need permission to take yourself seriously and for me that's - A mastermind - so a mastermind is a group of people, not too many who com together at a set time and 'mastermind'
5) Now have site and way to capture traffic, we now need traffic, in a sustainable way that won’t send you mad. Enter Social Media Schedulers. You can’t post everything in real time. Schedule most so you have more time to engage. Aby uses Social Oomph* (aff) for Twitter and Grum for Instagram (which isn’t against IG rules!). Don’t focus on free schedulers. Social Oomph is less than a Starbucks!
6) Web presence - you don't need to drop 3k on a website in order to look professional and get taken seriously online - don't do that. To start an online business you just need to be online somewhere, a post in a Facebook group will do!
