Hi terry,

It really depends on what you want to outsource. I've heard that the amazon guys (mturks.com) can cover pretty much anything for dirt cheap, but I've no idea what the quality of work is like.

Hope that helps

Any site you use for outsourcing make sure you do your due diligence on all applicants. There is good and bad on all sites.

I have used rentacoder for web development and found someone that i now work with regulary. I have outsourced other tasks and got complete lemons. I've learnt to do proper due diligence now. Work with people that have positive feedback and you should be good to go in the majority of cases.

I've tried rentacoder, guru, odesk, elancer, random people from forums (such as digitalpoint.com)...and just like in the 'real' world of client services, I have had some good experiences, and some bad.

To be honest, the best way to actually establish a good long term relationship, is to actually physically meet the people you are thinking of dealing with. For example, a mate of mine recently flew from Australia to India, for 2 months, with the full intent of finding a long-term coding partner during his travels. He probably spent about $1,500 on flights, and his holiday around India was very cheap, so if you think about it in the whole scheme of things, $1,500 is a small price to pay for reassurance that you are going to be dealing with the right 'out-sourcer' in the long term.

I've wasted probably hundreds of hours battling with the links of the Rentacoder arbitrators to try and get my money back on projects gone bad, believe me, putting in the hard yards to find some one good is worth it!

Yes I believe that this is the best way to outsource you workers, how ever you have to start some where.

Make sure that you test your outsourcers before giving them to much work to do, make sure that you vet them.

As this post states there ups and downs for all the sites that I use.

Scriptlance.com
Elance.com
RentAcoder.com
Designoutpost.com
Odesk.com
outsourcexp.com
Guru.com
Getafreelancer.com

Hope this helps

Hi Terry,

As with others - I've tried all of the public options and many of the Warriors offering services.

You never really know what you're going to get and it largely depends on your niche. There are many great warriors offering services which are great for a one-man show, but just don't cut it as far as being really professional or technically comprehensive are concerned.

I have a new web design needed right now and although I have 'go-to' people for most of my usual site graphics, I don't actually have anyone I think can do what I need for this particular job and will probably end up at a bricks and mortar design firm to get it done.

I've tried a LOT of programmers too and for some things Elance, Rentacoder etc. event he WF are fine for that - but often I end up having to go around getting referrals and find someone who has a track record of being able to actually finish work that takes more than a few weeks to do.

Many of the people offering services are just trying to pay their bills each month and get bored very quickly if they have to work for any length of time on one job.

My advice - speak to friends, find people that have a good track record and be prepared to pay for someone good.

Andy

I used to use elance but not any more for the following reasons:

1. They screwed up security and my personal data was posted on other sites. They then ignored my emails asking what they were specifically doing about it. When $$ is concerned, Idon't expect a company to hide behind bland statements such as "we're taking steps".

2. The people on elance tend to be more expensive (and quite a few are simply outsourcing their work to cheaper resource!).

I now use several different resources and keep changing to avoid possible security issues.

Kind regards

One of the best ways to get good people to outsource to is find other people using them part time and share the cost to get a full time outsourcer. I only hire full-time but I know a lot of people don't need full time help and they have basically already done the homework of finding the right person.

I've had as many as 9 outsource firms working for me at a time. I use RentaCoder (RAC) because they eskow the money and help manage the freelancer to get the job completed. I wouldn't use someone off the RAC platform unless they prove they can deliver.

I hired a project manager to manage the RAC platform and I had a good size virtual team that worked like clockwork. I only hire people on RAC with a very high rating over 93% success rate even if I have to pay them considerably more because they - GET Things Done!

My Project manager has a masters degree in coding. She is a soft architect so she writes the specs. The biggest problem in outscoring is communicating exactly what you want. Also over state your needs.

There is an adage in software development which applies a lot to other fields: if you think something will take a certain amount of time - it will actually take 3 times that long. So if you need a project completed in 3 months tell the developer or freelancer their time frame to complete the task is 1 month. This way if there a any stalls or glitches (which there always are) you are ahead of the game.

I've heard clients rave about ODesk as well. But I never used them so I can't speak with authority on them.

If you want a logo designed - 99designs is BRILLIANT.

OK - it's more than vworker, fiverr, etc: but I got 150 submissions for my logo design in just over a week.

Brilliant. The keys are: give a clear specification: and give quick feedback when someone submits a design which does not quite hit the nail on the head.

My best bidders reacted to my feedback, and then submitted an extra 4-5 6-7 designs.

Excellent.

I have had the most success with

and

2) Elance

Those sites are gold mines if you know how to use them. Takes a while but they are great. The best IMHO.

Overall I use Elance, but don't overlook a UK based site called People per Hour. Tend to be a bit more expensive but in many cases definitely worth it.

ODesk and Fiverr of late.

If you're just getting your feet wet outsourcing, hire on oDesk by the hour, they have screen capture software and "activity meters" to monitor your workers, so you can outask smaller projects hourly and scale up as needed.

If looking for a team player, hire 5 - 10 people to do a 2 hr. test project similar to what you want done in the longer term, and you'll find 1 - 2 superstars out of the lot. At $5/hr x 2 hrs x 10 workers, for $100 you can find your team player(s).

This is assuming you have first filtered them out by feedback and buyer comments.

Then you can negotiate a lower rate to hire them full time.

I don't use elance anymore, workers are higher priced, and $50 minimum makes it too expensive to test using method above.

Hope this helps!

I have had success with VWORKER.COM but it is time consuming going through all the profiles to find the right vendor

Outsourcing sites really differ by style. You're either hiring freelancers or you're hiring virtual staff to act as employees in your business, working for you and you only.

The former (freelancers):

- Elance
- oDesk
- Fiverr (for very small tasks)

For VIRTUAL STAFF who work for you and are paid directly by you, try:
OutsourceFactor OutsourceFactor | Helping Online Entrepreneurs Hire Offshore Talent because it's completely free. There are also other sites (that charge money) such as OnlineJobs.ph and BestJobs.ph

For me, ODesk and Elance. Great sites to find freelancers in a wide variety of fields.

Find the things you cant/don't do (even though you need to)... Explain EXACTLY what you need them to accomplish, and what you expect to receive for their compensation and start interviewing people....

For me, I have a few virtual assistants who help me from time to time, but the graphics guy I connected with has proven to be an absolute god-send for me and at $5 per hour, I'm saving $45 per hour vs. the last US based designer I used.
