The Ultimate List of Marketing Tasks You Can Outsource Right Away

Carl Taylor | February 13, 2018

Growing a business takes a lot of work. Whether you’re trying to get your company off the ground or you’re hoping to scale to take on new customers and clients, your to-do list is probably miles long.

Unfortunately, many of the day-to-day tasks you need to complete can become repetitive and boring. Not only can this make it difficult to focus, but it can also eat away at your time, causing you to spend long days just to accomplish the bare minimum.

However, outsourcing these repetitive tasks can help you free up your time, stay focused, and bring your business to the next level. There are dozens of tasks you can outsource to a virtual assistant, or a marketing concierge service like Automation Agency. Let’s take a look at a few.

What Tasks Can You Outsource?

Outsourcing certain tasks can help you feel like a business owner once again. When you eliminate the repetitive, mundane tasks from your to-do list, you’re freeing up time and energy that you can dedicate to making strategic, important decisions about how you can expand your business.

Knowing what you can outsource is an important step in finding tasks you can take off your do-to list. When it comes to outsourcing, tasks typically fall into two categories: technical and design.

Technical tasks typically revolve around the software, processes, or upkeep of your website. This can include things like implementing contact names into management software or adding blog posts to your website. Design tasks are usually those that make your marketing your own, such as implementing your branding into your email newsletter.

Let’s take a deeper look at what technical tasks and design tasks you can outsource if you need to take some marketing tasks off your plate.

Sales Funnel Tasks

Your sales funnel brings leads through the buying process to eventually become customers. In order for leads to successfully make it through the funnel, you need to provide your audience with the right information, resources, and content to help them make a smart purchasing decision.

However, maintaining your sales funnel can take time – especially when you’re trying to move hundreds of leads through the process at once. If you’re tackling these projects and processes on your own, you’re leaving the possibility that leads are ignored.

Outsourcing these tasks can help you stay on top of your sales funnel. Here are a few sales funnel tasks you can outsource:

  • Scheduling email sequences
  • Setting up Webinars in GotoWebinar
  • Converting Pixel Tracking Codes
  • Importing a CSV into your CRM
  • Setting up custom domains for clickfunnels
  • Retargeting pixels for Facebook, Twitter, Google, and YouTube

WordPress Tasks

WordPress is one of the most popular tools for running a website. With the number of plugins, themes, and extensions you can use within WordPress, it’s a great platform for creating a website entirely your own.

Unfortunately, you can’t simply set up your WordPress site and leave it be. In order to attract and convert new leads, you need to keep your WordPress site updated and well-maintained. These tasks can become time-consuming.

To help save you time you can better dedicate elsewhere, you can outsource these WordPress tasks:

  • Creating a lead capture or opt-in form
  • Updating the images on your website
  • Establishing a payment form
  • Adding testimonials to your website
  • Duplicating existing WordPress pages

Landing Page Tasks

Your landing pages are used to catch attention and capture leads. These one-page overviews of a particular product, opt-in, or service gives your customer everything they need to know about working with your company, then provides them with the opportunity to make a purchase.

If your landing pages are unattractive, missing information, or simply don’t persuade your visitor to input their contact information, you’re not going to see the conversion rate you’d hope for.

You can maximize your landing pages by outsourcing certain tasks. Here are a few examples:

  • Creating a landing page template mockup
  • Setting up a payment form within your landing page
  • Establishing a LeadPages landing page on your website
  • Building a simple opt-in landing page through Visual Page Builder

Design Tasks

Design projects help your brand stand out from the crowd. When you create awesome images, designs, and layouts for your website and content, you can differentiate your company and start building a genuine brand for your business.

However, if you don’t have an eye for design, these tasks can be annoying, time consuming, and may not turn out the way you hoped. In order to get high-quality designs that you’ll be happy to show off, you can outsource these tasks.

Here are the design tasks you can outsource:

  • Creating short PDFs for reports, lead magnets, or checklists
  • Producing 3D product images
  • Developing Facebook Ad images
  • Designing sidebar banners for your blog
  • Creating a blog post thumbnail image
  • Establishing a printable order form
  • Designing a membership site module icon
  • Making simple edits to images
