Top 5 Positions to Hire First for 6-Figure Business Owners

Top 5 Positions to Hire First for 6-Figure Business Owners

Business owners have a lot on their plates, especially once they’ve reached six figures! You may have gotten to this point on your own, which is a huge accomplishment. You might already have a team behind you that helped you get to this point. Either way, as a six-figure business owner, you need help to continue to grow your business. The answer? Outsourcing.

Now that you have some cash to spare, you may be wondering how to outsource some work you don’t like doing or don’t know how to do. These are the five positions to hire first, as they will make the most significant impact on your productivity and business growth.

1. Virtual Assistant

A virtual assistant is your right-hand person. This new hire can help with a variety of tasks in your business, including:

  • Create content (and also schedule it to post!)
  • Schedule meetings
  • Research
  • Data entry
  • Send invoices
  • Follow up with clients or other contractors
  • Project management
  • Website maintenance

This is one of the first positions to hire when looking to outsource. I don’t recommend finding someone who can do all these tasks (you can’t be good at everything!). Narrow down what you want to get off your plate, and find someone who specializes in that area. They can also grow with you as your business develops. You could hire someone to answer emails and input data, then gradually offload other tasks as they master the original tasks you gave them.

2. Bookkeeper

A bookkeeper, accountant, and CPA are essential for your business. Businesses that haven’t reached six figures should hire in these roles! Six-figure business owners definitely need an expert in managing their finances and tax strategies. Bookkeepers are another position I recommend business owners should prioritize outsourcing. The average person doesn’t have the knowledge or time to analyze numbers every week or month. Hire a bookkeeper to organize your invoices and payments, and offer suggestions to better manage your money. This is a role worthy of your investment.

3. Project Manager

As a six-figure business owner, you likely have several large projects going on at once. Planning, scheduling, and tracking your projects is vital for continued business growth. Whether it’s with clients or for your own business, it’s important to have a dedicated person to help you keep track of all the moving parts. 

A project manager offers so much value to your business. Here are some things they can help with:

  • Plan and develop project ideas
  • Monitor project progress
  • Set and adhere to deadlines
  • Solve issues that come up
  • Manage the project budget
  • Evaluate project performance

4. Fractional CMO

A fractional Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) acts as a marketing manager for your business without hiring one full-time. They typically have a variety of responsibilities and skills in the marketing department, so you can imagine the value they would bring to your team. These are some examples of skills you can expect from a fractional CMO:

  • Social media management
  • Marketing funnel development
  • Lead generation and conversion
  • Paid advertising
  • Copywriting
  • SEO
  • Sales enablement
  • Reporting and metrics
  • Email marketing
  • Campaign planning, building, and implementation
  • Website maintenance
  • Graphic design

As you can see, a fractional CMO would be a great addition to your team. CMOs offer tons of valuable insights that are important for assessing the viability of different business growth strategies. They make sure your marketing runs on autopilot and deliver quality results. Six-figure business owners know the importance of lead generation and conversion, and this is a fractional CMO’s specialty. They use marketing techniques to generate leads, then develop a funnel strategy to convert them. All you have to do is sell them with your amazing services and personality!

5. Content Manager

Although a virtual assistant could act as a content manager, it’s ideal to have a dedicated person for this job. Content development has a lot of moving parts. You need someone to develop a strategy, plan, and execute content. These are some of the areas a content manager can help with:

  • Social media
  • Blogs
  • Videos
  • Emails
  • Podcast

Outsourcing is one of the best long-term business growth strategies a business owner can invest in. You can’t complete your best work juggling the tasks of many roles, especially as your business scales beyond six figures. Outsourcing is your simple and effective solution to continue your business’s success.
