Have You Ever Worked Out Your Value Per Hour?

outsourcingThere are many bloggers who make a full time income either by selling their services, their products, affiliate products or numerous other ways.

There are many more who earn a part-time income doing similar but…

…if you run your blog as a business and generate some income from it, have you ever worked out your hourly income?

I am going to keep this simple just to get my point across…

Let’s say, on average, each day you work 8 hours each day doing blog writing, marketing, product creation and ‘selling’.

As a blogger wanting some income you have to do all of these, right?

Let’s say your 8 hours work generates $50…that’s $5 an hour.

But some tasks you do can generate more income than others.

You’d love to do more product creation because that is what brings in the money but you have to market don’t you?

I want to share with you something that I know will enable you to spend more time creating products or doing tasks that generate more income.

Outsourcing….no please don’t stop reading…

…bear with me just for a couple more minutes.

You see some of those tasks you do like Marketing can be outsourced for $2 or $3 an hour.

You will be saving money as instead of marketing you could spend more time on creating or selling products, which will increase your daily income.

Does that make sense?

If you want to influence your blogging and start making a little more income, I’d like to share with you some excellent training videos provided by my friend, Tyrone Shum.

You can see his FREE 10-part video course on how to outsource your blogging at this link:


I’ve known Tyrone Shum for quite some time and he’s got me into outsourcing.

He’s helped train and coach hundreds of people to outsource their work and imporve their time management to focus on making money from their blogs.

If you’re still at the start-up phase of building your blog, then you may be one of the many who is struggling with the issue of how to get your blog set-up for you.

My blog and free guide show’s you how to do this step-by-step, but some people are just not comfortable with certain aspects of blogging, whether it may be technology, design, or just time constraints.

The best advice to solve this problem is to outsource your needs to someone who knows how to do it.

You can even give all my training material inside the “Income Blogging Guide” course to the person and they will do it all for you!

Get your copy of the FREE video e-course today:


So, why am I recommending Tyrone?

He’s the outsourcing expert. He hires skilled individuals who live in the Philippines to do the tech work (and a lot more) for him, so he can focus on other aspects of his business.

Tyrone’s video course compliments with my guide and it will teach you how to outsource and get other people to do things that you cannot do, or don’t want to do, yourself.

Tyrone is giving away his ten-part video course, because he wants to introduce himself by teaching you how he hires people from overseas.

In order to watch the videos, you have to go to this page and enter your name and email –


See for yourself how Tyrone Shum can help you fast-track your blogging and help you make money today.

What is your experience of outsourcing? Please share your views in the comments below.

P.S. The links above are for a free video e-course and they are affiliate links. If you were to go on and purchase Tyrone’s full outsourcing course, I would receive a commission.

    Once you get a decent number of blogs you have to outsource. You cant do all the writing and marketing on your own.

    For me especially social bookmarking is one of the tasks I really dislike. Right now I am looking to outsource that super boring task.

    Thanks for the article!

    Outsourcing can be tricky. One should be okay to compromise on the quality while outsourcing. I am sure it saves lots of money, but the question is about quality. If we get quality job in the acceptance level then we are safe, otherwise doing random quality checks will cost more than the actual outsourcing rate. I have tried to outsource some of my marketing chores to offshore workers and unfortunately didnt have good experience. I might sound little pessimistic, but thats only my version. I am sure there are plenty of others out there. Anyway I’ll watch the video and try to spot where I went wrong. Thanks for bringing this up.

      You make a very good point about quality. I have found some outsourcers to be pretty poor when it comes to quality.

      That’s another reason why I recommend Tyrone – he has found quality outsourcers to use.

    I currently outsource design work and would like to outsource content creation and PR in the near future. There are just not enough hours in the day to do everything I need to do. I’m not sure if I can get quality content from writers in the Philippines.

    Nice post, really time is money, however, outsourcing can be a great solution, but as Ben as said above, the quality is what matters. Marketing is very time consuming and at the same time can not be ignored.

    I do believe that outsourcing is important. But only once you have gotten to a certain point. I mean if you are obviously not making any money or your blog is still way too small it then it doesn’t make sense to outsource all the things to someone else. Of course it might but only if you earn more money per hour from something else (such as consulting) then you do from working on your blog.

      What you say is right…however if you could afford to pay someone $3 an hour to do your blog marketing while you quickly create your first product…it could be worthwhile and not be too expensive.

    Timely! Quite timely in a way as I am currently discussing with someone the viability of my consulting for pay…this would entail me needing more time, obviously.

    As for outsourcing content creation, I would never advise such a thing for any sort of “primary” blog.

          header banners, graphic banners, images…

          I think you are missing out if you don’t employ a good writer.

            Ah OK, I don’t consider those things to be “content”, just text.

            While I love guest bloggers and such, I would never have, nor advise someone to write for you or as you on a primary blog.

            I hear what you are saying.

            But why not?

            If you have access to a great writer – who can copy your writing style, do the research, write a great blog post and then you check it, tweak it and publish.

            That makes sense to me, as it saves me time to do other things needed to run my blogging business.

            I don’t believe anyone can truly duplicate your style or personality.

            That after all is what makes a blog unique in a sea of millions.

    Outsourcing can indeed enable you to get more tasks done in less time. I also think you would provide people with good employment opportunities if you outsource work.

    This seems like something i should try. I’m getting more busy every time i start a new site or campaign and outsourcing work helps tremendously! Right now, the only thing i outsource is article creation for submission to article directories.

  9. Ben Laryea April 21, 2010 at 6:03 am #

    I like the idea of outsourcing some of your article but looking for a good writer is another concern. Also we need to consider the cost for outsourcing since I think $10 each for good article nowadays.

    Pretty cheap indeed Andrew. I have been using outsourcing not long time ago and its been working fine for me, all you need is to be very vigilant regarding your outsource work.

    I’ve had a great experience with my outsourced virtual assistance. They have been some of the best employees an entrepreneur could ask for.

  12. Andrew April 29, 2010 at 1:41 pm #


    We are going to have to agree to disagree. Get the right writer and you won’t look back.

    Great article!
    Outsourcing can surely make you save money but even though there are lots of benefits of it, I have to admit that there are also some disadvantages. One example is there’s no way to be sure if the person you’ve hired will do the best job. There’s nothing left to do but trust him and hope for the best results.
    Although I agree that Filipinos have good attitude when it comes to work. They are not just appreciated for doing a great job, but for being honest as well. But you still have to make sure you hire the best employees possible.
    You have to build a bullet proof hiring process in order for outsourcing to be effective.
