Online Marketing Made Easy with Amy Porterfield

On this episode of the Online Marketing Made Easy Podcast, I interview my good friend, Laura Roeder.

I've had Laura on the podcast before, but I wanted to have her on again, because she is a master in setting up processes and systems to grow your business.

In this episode, here’s what we’ll cover:

  • The difference between a project manager and a VA

  • Why your project manager should work only for you, rather than have other clients

  • How much you should pay a project manager

  • The role of a project manager and what it takes to hire and train one

  • A mindset shift that needs to happen before you hire your first project manager

  • How you should think about how much you should pay your project manager, and what you should do less of so you an afford to hire help

  • The golden ticket when it comes to hiring team members

  • Why you don't have to find a project manager who is a perfect fit for your business

  • And so much more!

Key Takeaways

  • There are a lot of highly skilled, underemployed people out there now, who would love to work as a project manager

  • You're in the right place to hire a project manager if you:

    • Feel overwhelmed, burned out, or emotionally exhausted

    • Have a bunch of ideas and projects you want to tackle but are too busy

  • A project manager keeps you organized and helps you to continue moving forward with the things you really want to do

  • It's more important for someone to have the ability to learn than it is for them to already know all of the programs you use

  • Be willing to take the time to train your project manager and don't just tell them what to do, but why you want it done

  • Spend less money on programs and then use that money to pay a project manager

  • The main things a project manager should help you do:

    • Translate your goals and plans into daily tasks

    • Make sure things are being done on time and if they aren't, figure out why

    • Ensure not just that the work is done, but that the quality is high
