To sell or to outsource.?
Last Update: Sep 2, 2018
Hello WA peeps!
So after losing ground in my rankings, and not posting an article for the better part of 2 weeks, I have had to do some serious thinking.
Here's the thing: Without beating a dead horse and reviewing my current financial situation yet again, suffice it to say that I am trying to make things better by continuing to work full time and redesign my web design/graphic design website, hosted here on WA.
I also just picked up a new marketing project from a local law firm/financial services firm, which is going to be a soul-sucking experience for me. They are very difficult people with a lot of internal politics and unrealistic expectations. I'm not even sure they will pay me for the marketing plan I did, and am waiting for a check.
I have set a goal for myself that this will be the LAST time I pick up a project like this. Either I make more money at my current job, or I find another job, or I pick up smaller web design projects so as to have a quantity of work flowing in.
What does this have to do with my site, natureshealingstrategies.com?
One of 2 things has to happen:
1. I sell it -- which will be difficult to do, with only 100 visitors a week. It would need to be sold to someone who understands and appreciates the value of the content and would want to enhance it, combine it with theirs, etc...
2. Someone runs it for me. Maybe I need to have someone monitor it, put up the posts I provide, help me write them, and finally get this up to the point of earning income enough to sustain my initial costs for WA, and then some. I would need someone with experience, and the intuition and expertise needed so that there wouldn't be much hand-holding. Not sure what that would cost, but maybe something could be worked out whereby they earn a percentage of sales for the first 6 months or something like that.
I am open to all thoughts, offers, suggestions, and thanks so much. I love my site. I love what it talks about, and would love nothing more than to keep it going. The reality, though, has hit me in the face, and I need to make a decision.
Would also love to hear from Kyle, Carson, Nathaniell, Jay, Marian, and all the other top earners here. This is a big decision for me.
Thanks so much,
