I love it. I love hiring people. It’s like my new favorite thing to do.
I learned how to outsource a kindle book from Rachel Rofe and James Jones.
In this training, they actually give you the exact wording and videos that you need so that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to describing what you need.
When you are outsourcing anything, not just a Kindle book, you literally get what you ask for.
The other day I gave a small project to someone and I left out an important detail about the task I gave him. When I got the work back, it of course was missing certain things that I needed that outsourcer to do. Go figure. It was missing that information because I DIDN’T ASK FOR THAT INFORMATION.
With outsourcing, the devil is in the details. Don’t expect your outsourcer to go above and beyond and assume things that you don’t ask for. Don’t get me wrong, there are some people who naturally do that and you are very lucky if you have someone like that working for you. Most people though, just do what you ask them – and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.
The point here is to make sure that you are very clear in your directions to your outsourcers because you will get what you ask for. Of course, if you don’t even get what you ask for then you should find new outsourcers, but for the most part if you do find a good outsourcer, be crystal clear with what you need.
