Run a Better Business
If you're serious about outsourcing to reduce costs, do your due diligence and find qualified individuals or firms to work with.
For starters, have you thought about using a password manager.? Well, why not?
Do you even ask your customers for reviews? Because there's a good chance you won't get what you don't ask for.
The first step is to convert visitors into subscribers, and there are some excellent tools to help you do that.

Ever thought of Singapore or Denmark? Yes, Denmark is actually a very good idea.
Buffer. Almighty. Press. SumoMe. Why not use them all together in one turbocharged work flow?
New tech? Weekly and monthly goals? Risks you plan to take? What goals are you setting for next year?
Without sales like those on Black Friday, ecommerce businesses might have had a tougher time recovering from the post-election blues.
