8 in 10 small businesses (80%) plan to outsource in 2021, citing that prospect of saving time and money and working with experts, according to a new report on Clutch, the leading B2B research firm.

Small businesses are outsourcing business functions to drive growth.

Chelsea Kane is the founder and sole proprietor of First Cup Morning Series, a daily mindfulness audio program. She says that embracing outsourcing is essential for small businesses.

“As an entrepreneur, trying to do everything yourself can slow down the growth of your business,” Kane said. “Outsourcing has enabled me to focus on the parts of the business I love, and leave the other parts to respective experts in their own field.”

Outsourcing Enables Businesses to Work With Experts

More than one-quarter of businesses with 10 employees or fewer (26%) say that their company’s main motivation for outsourcing is to get help from an expert.

Experts can help small businesses with tasks that require specific abilities and experiences.

Matthew Bonestroo is the owner of Phoenix Mobile Home LLC, a platform for buying and selling mobile homes. Bonestroo noticed that companies were using TikTok, a social media platform for short-form videos, to market their products.

Bonestroo wanted to start posting videos, but he knows trailers, not TikTok. Instead, he outsources video content creation to a videographer who can help him reach potential customers.

For $50 per hour, Bonestroo has high-quality video content and a presence on a new platform.

Decisions about onshoring and offshoring indicate that there is an appropriate vendor and location for any project.
