Default Place to hire people for odd jobs?

Hello. I was wondering if anyone knew of any websites than I could find people to do odd-jobs and pay them.
I know there is a Warriors Products and Services section, but it really isn't enough to justify paying $20 for each odd job I need done. I also know of digitalpoint forums, but for some reason that I don't understand they hand out infractions for just about everything, so I tend to stay away from there.


Thanks!

That site looks like it would be effective for some of my larger jobs, but not too good for some what I'm looking for.

One in particular is an affiliate link give people $10 to sign up under my referral and complete a free offer, which in turn I get paid $26 for each person that does it. Does anyone know where I could find lots of people for easy stuff like that?

Thanks.

There is a few Rentacoder, odesk, elance, nimbledirect.com, freelancer.com, getafreelancer.com

I'm a fan of Odesk, but Rentacoder is supposed to be good for more complex tasks.

Well, No offense. But Indians are raising their prices. Anyway; I use GetAFreeLancer. But lately the quality of work and ethics of many providers there has decreased. I have experienced many cases of workers that don't like to work, do incomplete or lousy jobs and then want money paid upfront. BTW; Never pay upfront because they will just take your money and run.

Hmmm sounds like you are planning to do something that is against the cpa rules to me.
To pay 10 bucks for someone to sign up for a cpa offer is incentivizing...
You're never allowed to incentivize something that pays 26 bucks right?

Hi. :)

Somebody in this forum posted that link to a outsourcing video before, I could not find the thread anymore but here is the video: http://www.maniacworld.com/Outsourcing-Your-Own-Job.html

It is not very helpful, but it sure is funny.

People in Philippines do a good job and do not cost much. These two websites are good:
Best Jobs Philippines :: Philippine job search, job bank, employment and recruitment
Find a real, online job! | Home

They cost some money to join, but it`s worth it.

I use Odesk, Rentacoder or Elance. But finding resource that is "loyal" is hard to come by (I can't really blame them) so you need to be flexible and understand that you'll be continually hiring people.

In my experience, be specific in what you ask them to do for you. Good luck.

Hi, this is Nicole from Rent a Coder.

As milo_pl suggested (thank you milo_pl), our service is a very good resource for hiring out odd jobs. Rentacoder provides access to programming, writing, illustration, even data entry jobs.

I'd also like to point out a few differences between our service and services like oDesk, Elance, Guru, and Freelancer (GetAFreelancer) however, since those differences could influence the success of an outsourced project.

First there's the issue of arbitration.

Since the issue of quality and ethics came up, arbitration (i.e. the right to quality work and a refund) is probably most important. In this regard, you should note that oDesk doesn't offer arbitration at all, making it extremely difficult (if not impossible) to get a refund for faulty work.

Elance charges $66.66 or $133.33 for each arbitration, which may make it too expensive to be a legitimate option on an odd job project. At Guru, a worker can stall just the beginning of arbitration for weeks (20 business days in fact) and ultimately, unnecessarily delay a due refund.

And Freelancer limits arbitration to projects with milestone payments of more than $30. If your project has milestones less than that, you don't have access to arbitration even though your situation may warrant it.

At Rentacoder, we offer full arbitration on all projects free of charge and we prevent abusive buyers from stalling an arbitration's start. In fact, 45% of our arbitrations are completed under a day and 75% of them are completed under a week.

Second, since having access to arbitration is a gurantee of sorts, you ought to know that some of these services don't protect your money the way we do.

oDesk, Elance, Guru, and Freelancer don't give you an on-time delivery guarantee from the worker via a foreitable deposit. Rentacoder on the other hand, guarantees your pay-for-deliverable projects with free arbitration and in some cases, an Expert Guarantee. Further, neither oDesk, Guru, nor Freelancer refund you if your worker misses a required status report like Rentacoder does.

Third, some of those services limit your access to qualified workers. Odesk workers for example, can't make more than 2 bids a month unless they take certain Odesk tests, or receive feedback on a certain number of projects.

Elance workers can't make more than 10 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee ($10/month for 20, $20/month for 40 or $40/month for 60). Guru attaches a hefty subscription fee onto its workers who want to make more than 10 bids at a time. And Freelancer workers can't make more than 15 bids a month unless they pay a subscription fee as well. Less bidders on your project gives you less selection and often results in higher prices. That's why at Rentacoder, we do not place a bid limit on any of our workers for any reason.

I invite everyone here to compare the 7 major services through our site to learn even more.

If you have any questions, please let me know. You can also call in to talk to a facilitator 7 days a week, or email us.

From what I have heard odesk and freelancer are among the best sites, but as you want people to work for low prices just try opting for some work from home based sites where you can have plenty of people ready to work you just require to assure them about the payment.

Kind of off topic, but what are infractions? I'm in Digitalpoint forums too, but have no idea what infraction means?

Personally, I like the concept of oDesk the most. They only take a 10% cut from what the employer pays the worker. That is all and avoids all the hassles. Great place with all the tests too. You can judge from some of the test results which are the people who know what they are doing.
