One thing to outsource?

Hello everyone,
I am just getting things up and running, so to speak, and I"m doing everything myself. I don't really have any money to put back in yet but was thinking of outsourcing at least one thing.

My question to all is, if you could only outsource one thing what would it be? and why?

Thank You

I'd outsource articles for backlinking purposes.

This is grunt work and probably the best use of your money whether you have a ton or not.

You can get outsourced articles for around a penny a word at places like Elance or TextBroker.

Hope this helps.

I agree with slvrsrfr. I would also outsource articles for submission to article directories and article distribution services, though not the articles for my own websites, if I had the option to outsource one thing.

Article-writing is time-consuming and laborious, and outsourcing it would be a good use of your available resources, as long as you can get hold of a good writer. Be aware, though, that the better writers command higher prices and that you usually get what you pay for.

Cheers :)

Thanks slvrsrfr and faradina

I had thought about finding someone to build backlinks for me but it sounds like article writing may be better. I'm still trying to wrap my head around all of this.

Everything has been pretty easy so far, to get a website up and going to me, but now I'm sorta stuck. I'm not ranking for anything, I haven't seen any new backlinks on TT even though I have been submitting articles, making blogs, social bookmarking and web 2.0 sites.

How long does it take for a backlink to show up on TT?

it can take several weeks or even months for your backlinks to show up. The search engines don't index the whole net in a day. there are some things that you can do to speed up the process, like tweeting new articles, bookmarking, and pinging, but even then, they dont always show all your links anyway.

Search engines don't always show backlinks to your site (especially Google) even if they have already crawled those backlinks. And if they don't show the backlinks, Traffic Travis can't show you any either since it pulls its data from the search engines.
