As I mentioned in the Shit You Can Automate to Improve your life podcast, if you're going to run a business, you're going to need to delegate. So what's it going to be? Are you going to post an ad on Upwork.com to outsource your video editing?
Are you going to utilize a system like Landr. to master your audio and podcasting files?
Whatever it is, you need to figure out at least one thing that you are going to delegate today so that you can move on to more important shit.
Here's what I would like to delegate in the next 30 days:
- Podcast video editing - Doing a 2 camera video shoot for podcasting requires a lot of work
- Music video production - I want someone to entirely produce music videos from scratch based on my direction. I don't even want to show up. While there will be some videos I will plan and execute myself, overall this is something I want to push to someone else so I can focus on writing music.
- Nugget searching - There are tons of priceless bits such as my Excuses bit and little nuggets like the You can make a huge difference youtube nugget in my content. I think all of this could be outsourced. Maybe one of my fans can timestamp the parts in my podcast that are worth saving to post on social media.
- Promotion and advertising - It's time to start running campaigns for the brand. I want to not only promote the brand itself but individual courses I will be creating for people who want to pay for those downloads.
I would say those are my top four for now. Everything else is associated with creation or requires some hands on expertise that only I have. Writing stuff down like this makes me accountable to myself, but you should also consider what you're going to delegate in your life to make it easier.
Remember to listen to the podcast.
