If you’ve read this post on why affiliate websites scale, you’ve begun to get a sense as to just how important outsourcing is when it comes to earning real money online.
I don’t want to give you a false impression, however: you can’t just start any random website, pay someone to put content on it, sit back and watch the money roll in.
You need to have a process first. In this post I’ll talk about the right way to leverage outsourcing into real money online.

You Need To Do It Yourself Once
The first thing I really want to hone in on is that in order to be successful using outsourcing techniques, you need to have built at least one profitable website.
Once you have a website that is earning more money than it costs to maintain (including some number that accounts for the amount of time you’ve put into it), you can begin to scale.
Building this first site yourself is extremely important. It will increase your knowledge and awareness about what it takes to succeed, which steps are absolutely essential and where you might cut a few corners.
It also gives you an idea as to some of the pitfalls you might fall into if you hire someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing.
But, most importantly, building it yourself will help you clarify exactly what it is you want from your outsourced material.
If you don’t know where to start, you can learn how here.
Clarity Is Essential
Refining your own idea of what you need and don’t need from an outsourcer is a hugely important step.
Working with freelancers is not a magic solution that will provide you with something amazing UNLESS you tell your freelancers how to produce that amazing content.
You need to be specific. If you leave room for ambiguity you’re far more likely to get a piece work you weren’t expecting.
Many people new to delegation blame the “low quality” freelancer, but the fact is that if you don’t get what you want, it’s probably your fault. Most freelancers are eager to please and will happily make adjustments as long as they understand the instructions.
Be Sure To Scale Success
This also means that outsourcing will scale both the good and the bad parts of your process.
Be sure that you’re scaling success by having clear instructions at each and every step of the way.
That’s how you create a reliable system that will help you earn real money online.
