Hire a Digital Business Manager so you can Focus on Branding and Leads
When you start a business, you might not be thinking of bringing on a manager because you will be doing everything on your own. This is how the majority of startups think, but it doesn't have to be that way, because you can get a business manager on board for much cheaper than you would think. You don't need to hire someone with an Ivy League degree who can run your business when you can hire someone overseas for a fraction of the price.
If you run a digital business, then you can hire anyone with experience within your industry, and they will do an amazing job, usually. Below are a few things to read over if you feel you're overworked and may need to bring on a business manager to help you out.
They're Affordable if you know where to look
I live in the United States and hiring a business manager here would cost me $30,000-$70,000 depending on how much experience they have. Since I'm a fully digital company, I can hire anyone in the world, and that means the talent pool I can dive into is much deeper and filled with people who will take $3,000-$5,000 a year and be ecstatic about the position!
You can hire someone in India or the Phillippine for $300-$500 a month, and they will do an amazing job managing a digital business while you focus on traffic, branding, and lead generation.
You won't need a super-skilled manager at first
If you're worried about the money, then I would suggest you hire someone with no experience and train them. You can get a good bargain for work if you do this and it will save you a decent amount each month. When I started doing this, I would find people who had some experience, train them, and then pay them more when they knew exactly what to do and when to do it. If I didn't have to ask them about something going on with my business, I would be very happy, and that means they were doing their jobs successfully and not screwing up lol.
Business managers free up loads of time
This may be pretty obvious, but digital business managers will free up loads of time so you can focus on building your business the way you want. You can have the manager focus on your customers, deliver orders, help with incoming chats, or all of the above, and reduce your workload dramatically. A lot of digital business managers will want to keep you happy because you're paying their rent, food bills, medical bills, and all they have to do is log onto your website from their house and do simple tasks that you don't want to do yourself.
You'll need to vet your digital business manager so you know they can do the job. You can always hire someone, then train them, but if they don't have some necessary skills and dedication, then it might be a better direction to hire someone that doesn't need as much training. The person you bring on board will be a part of your team or your only team member, so treat them kindly because they are there to help you out along the way. Pay them a decent wage for where they are at, and they will stick around, try to build up your business alongside you, and stick with you as long as the paychecks keep coming lol
