One way to get stop putting off the tasks you know have to be done in your online business, but can't face doing them, is to simply outsource them. It will also make your business more productive.
Most digital marketing and online business tasks can be outsourced today. So, the first clue you have that you should outsource something is when you hate doing it yourself.
But there is more to outsourcing than that.
Does It Make Sense On A Financial Basis?
Often the tasks you dislike doing are regarded (at least by you) to be basic tasks. This may include publishing blog posts, data entry, publishing to social media, and so on. These are tasks that are perfect for outsourcing because they're uninteresting to you and most likely you can earn more revenue by outsourcing it and concentrating on your main money maker.
Are You Qualified To Do It?
Some of the tasks you hate doing are probably because you're not very good at doing them. And, as a business owner you don't have to be good at doing everything. This doesn't mean you're lacking in business skills. It just means that you can't do a very good job doing something you weren't properly trained to do.
A good example is creating graphics or website building. If this isn't the primary purpose of your business, then it probably takes you ten times as long to do it and the final result will not be as good if it is completed by someone skilled in that area.

Sometimes you hate doing a task because it's taking away from the things you really want to do. When your business gets to a particular level, it is practical to start outsourcing various jobs so that you can do other things you consider fun to do.
Is Outsourcing Right For Your Business?
The general guideline is that if a piece of work is not your main line of work, then outsourcing it is completely fine. The other thing is, if you can outsource it for less than you can earn from the task then you're ahead of the game too. Of course, you want the person you use outsourcing for to do as well, so pick your outsourcers carefully and pay them a fair wage.
In fact, if you're not outsourcing some tasks, you're doing yourself and your business a disservice.
