I browsed around on the Fiverr website and was looking for worthwhile Gigs to buy.
I was really tempted by a couple of copywriting Gigs where freelancers offered to proofread some sales letters, emails, advertisements in order to maximize their effectiveness.
In the end, I chose not to do this.
Nobody knows my website, ideal-helper, as well as I do.
Outsourcing the task to talk about my website would probably be fake and not very personal.
So I hope you bear with me when you read my emails which are not that professional.
On the flipside, they are honest and authentic.
What you read on my blog posts or in my emails is really how I am talking.
So don’t hesitate to comment or leave us a note or even write us an email using the contact us page.
We are here and happy about your comments.

Stop Yourself from Procrastination on the Internet – Start Getting Productive
(October 08, 2012)
In order to keep myself productive when working on the internet, I like to use a set of different plug-ins in my favorite browsers.
One of them is LeechBlock.
You can use it to add your favorite time wasters to a list of black-listed URLs.
Of course you shouldn’t be there in the first place but we are all human, right?
Anyways when I install this plug-in, I put Facebook in there first.
I knew from another time recording software that I’ve spent most of my procrastinated time on Facebook.
Perhaps that’s a good place to start.
If you’re working with a virtual assistant, you should make sure that he or she is not wasting your time on Facebook either.
So perhaps it could be a good addition for a virtual assistant too.
Teaching My Virtual Assistant a Complex Multi-Step Process Once and Profiting From It Forever
(October 10, 2012)
Today, I gave my virtual assistant a challenge with a one week deadline.
I explained to him about a process of setting up a complex share-to-download button webpage only with a 5-minute video.
He has access to most of the training tools and can research freely but still it’s a challenge.
I’m very interested in seeing how this will work out.
My VA has completed the challenge with ease and elegance. Check out this link to see what he did for me. Quite a piece of work. 🙂
How I Outsourced a Review about Wordtracker Link Builder Service
(October 12, 2012)
If you think about using a system for link building in order to increase traffic, the Wordtracker Link builder tool is probably not a bad choice. All in all, I could recommend it.
However, I believe that SBI! has the better tools.
If you want to get an unbiased research about the Wordtracker Link building tool, I highly suggest you check out this post.
How Do I Know If My Virtual Assistant Has A Strong Internet Connection?
(October 23, 2012)
The most important resource that your virtual assistant needs to have ready for regular use to work for you is a strong internet connection. It is your job as an employer to make sure that the person you have hired actually has a strong internet connection. If you use tools like oDesk, then this doesn’t matter too much because you can see the activity in the screenshots from oDesk’s own software.
Still to make sure that a freelancer is not working slower than necessary due to some optimal internet speed; make sure to do some tests with him. The easiest test is to ask for a screenshot of an internet speed measuring site.
A better and more sure test is to actually set up a Skype call. Doing a Skype call with a virtual assistant you’ve just hired will test for several things.
- His level of English.
- Does your virtual assistant actually have a headset ready for a Skype call?
- The quality of the internet connection.
When you start out work with a virtual assistant, let us start out right. Before you will be sorry about the quality of the internet cooperation, make sure you double check everything.

Welcome to my outsourcing blog and feel free to look around.

Not too bad, isn’t it?
Online Business Strategies That You Can Outsource to Your Virtual Assistant
(30 October, 2012)
Last weekend, I spent almost all of my time reading a great book about online marketing strategies. I can’t wait to implement all of them into my business.
Normally, I would only read about them and never actually implement them into my websites. With the help of a virtual assistant, I can get to every one of them.
The latest thing I’m excited about is split testing.
