Have you ever outsourced your own SEO but you sell SEO?
In the world of freelancing and SEO you tend to do a lot of work. I know that I sometimes get overwhelmed with work and I have to contact a few select people to come in and help out. I would consider this outsourcing since I need to pay someone to do the work for me. I could do it myself, but the people I'm doing the work for might not be too happy since they would get it about 30 days late lol.
Have you ever outsourced your own work?
I know that with freelancing there is a fair amount of outsourcing, but if you run a service do you think you should outsource all of your own work? Could you even be considered a freelancer at that point or would you just be a middle man? I understand that if you are working on a service and you get overwhelmed on something and have to outsource some of the work in order for it to be done within a deadline, but all of it?
I've definitely set up some websites with the sole purpose of outsourcing the work 100%. When I do this I consider myself as a middle man and not a freelancer lol. But I wonder how many people actually think they are an SEO when they do this.
Now being an online marketer is different since you're in it for the money and just need a website to have high rankings and perform well. Do you think if you outsource all of your work you're still considered a marketer? I would think so just because you're doing the marketing and covering everything else as well, you're just not doing the service.
There are a few questions in here lol. But what do you guys and girls think?
