The London-based home of premium leather accessories business, Just4Leather, has delighted leather-lovers with a wide range of leather accessories since 2009. Born from a passion for quality and durability, this online store hosts an impressive list of some of the world’s most celebrated designers. It also offers its own range of leather handbags, wallets, laptop cases and more.
For Debbie, founder of Just4Leather, quality is everything. Alongside Just4Leather, she also runs two other businesses — WombatLeather and PrimeHideLeather — which keeps her busy around the clock. Although Debbie keeps a close eye on all the new projects and initiatives in her three companies, she says she stopped trying to do everything herself a long time ago.
Freelancers help you focus on growing your business, not your to-do list
“Our biggest constraint is time. This is where PeoplePerHour has been of great help. I know that I can outsource specific jobs and have them delivered, without having to worry.”
Running a carefully curated online store can be time-consuming. The to-do list can often remain untouched as other more pressing tasks come forward. And that’s one of the reasons why Debbie frequently outsources a number of tasks to on-demand specialists. She tells us that writing isn’t one of her strengths, so crafting punchy copy can often take a while — a luxury she can’t afford to indulge.
“As my writing talents are limited, we mainly use freelancers from PeoplePerHour for copy needs, including social, blog and web descriptions for our brands. We’ve also used PeoplePerHour for PR and WordPress work.”
Finding your go-to freelancers takes the pressure off your business
Leaning on freelancers to relieve the pressure of completing tasks isn’t the only upside. Fast turnaround of projects and the ability to find a variety of highly skilled, reliable and talented individuals is what keeps her coming back to PeoplePerHour.
Debbie elaborates: “There are so many talented people to choose from. You can spend a great deal of time just choosing one! Luckily, I have found my go-to group of freelancers that I can trust to get the job done. It takes the pressure off.”
Being familiar with the people she works with also relieves some of the anxiety that comes with outsourcing. The ability to connect with tried and tested experts to discuss the task at hand before they commission work is what works best for Just4Leather.
Debbie explains that working with someone who isn’t comfortable coming forward to ask questions would have an adverse effect on the outcome. So it’s crucial to find people who care enough to delve deeper into the task.
“I tend to make changes and typically need someone to fix them as soon as possible, so having someone who is readily available online and possesses a great deal of relevant knowledge is what works for my business”.
Having had great success in outsourcing projects, Debbie admits to being a big fan of PeoplePerHour. She urges anyone to try it for their business, too.
“Any task you need to do and are not confident with, there is someone on PeoplePerHour that has the skills and expertise to help, and probably do it better than you could do it yourself!”
