I Have A Question About Outsourcing Products

by matthewd 5 replies
Quick Summary: Where can I find someone to outsource a very specific niche market product to? I checked profiles and such at places like guru.com and elance... but I am afraid it may be too "specific" for the people there.

Long Story:For 3 months now I have been working on outsourcing a product that I can not create myself b/c I do not have enough knowledge in the market. I have just made a lot of money in the market as an affiliate and know of a way to take it to the next level with a product that blows everyone else's away.

I hired someone, a friend of mine, back in June. The payment was going to be 25% payment when they get 25% done, 25% more when they get 25% more done... etc; and a bonus if they got it done in a certain, VERY possible time frame.

The first person dicked around for about a month and a half and then finally stopped answering and returning my calls. So, I moved on to someone else and as I was searching, I realized I had another friend that was very qualified to do it.

I called them up and offered them the job; they were ecstatic about the money I was offering and had a ton of enthusiasm.

Well, they have been dicking around for about a month now. They have a bit better excuse b/c they have a pretty ridiculous work schedule, but he still has gotten me no progress.

I told them to think it over and decide here soon if they can handle the job and get it done or if I need to move on... so I am waiting to see. My gut tells me that since they have done nothing thus far, they will do nothing overall and I will be stuck looking for someone again.

So, that leads me to my question of: What is the best way to find someone that is an expert in a very specific market that I can outsource to?

    Hi Matthew!

    I think just by posting this here you'll be able to find plenty of folks ready to help. There are some great writers here like Dana_W, JennDize, Bev, literally tons. You can start by PM'ing a few to see if they can take any work on. If you're guarding your niche, this may be the safest way to find someone to help.

    HTH,

      Cary, thanks for the advice. There is more to it than writing though. It is a video product based on screen captures.

      I did not even think about posting here, but I think there could probably be at least one person here that matches what I need.

    Hi Matthew,

    The beauty of elance and sites like it is that you can hire someone to not only create the product but do all the research.

    They may not be an expert in the field but they can go away and sort of become one by researching and then create the product for you. It all comes down to their feedback and the price you pay.

    Personally, id try and outsource it to elance anyway and select a writer with great feedback and be VERY specific about what you want.

    Hope this helps

    Puppets are people too
