Alright, my turn to give back to the forum

Ive just read over this post below...

http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ing-issue.html

And let me tell you, theres nothing more frustrating than hiring someone who lets you down. Especially when you're depending upon them from a business perspective.

Anyway, what Ive done here is shared what I call a basic "Work Order Form" which allows you to outline the project specifications and other details including agreement terms etc when outsourcing particular tasks.

Please note that this is a very basic work order form that you can use, and change up as needed. All sections in RED are those of which you may want to change up.

I highly recommend that if you DO outsource, that you start using documents such as this to prevent disputes and or miscommunication.

I dont do ANYTHING unless my employee, has agreed to do as setout in the work order.

Please feel free to grab a copy below.

Hope this helps some of you

Johnny

    Gave it a tick for the reverse, in that taking on clients most would not have something like this and it would make good sense for my business to issue one of these on default to protect me from my end.

    Many people look for the extra freebies / time wasters or can cause problems if not clearly laid out.

    As much as I'd like to add this type of thing when I post sometimes, I really think it is quite rude.

    Thank you for sharing. That's a very nice to have document.
    1. What does the text from the footer mean? ("PRINTED COPIES ARE UNCONTROLLED")
    2. If you send this document by eMail, how will that person sign it? He will print it, signed it, scan it and send it back to you?

    Johnny, good one. Crusiing around the forum & found it. In my opinion it's a straightforward work order proforma. It's pretty complete, but that's a plus for contractor and outsourcer. A reckon it's a reminder that we should treat Internet Business just like any business. A professional approach will lead to less headaches overall.

    Nice share - my thanks added.
    As a Project Manager for many years in a technical writing business, one of the major reasons for dispute I've found (sadly from experience) is acceptance of the deliverable.
    Consider adding just one more text box that sets out the acceptance criteria to go alongside the timescale. This makes it plain for both parties, what will constitute an acceptable deliverable and what you, the customer, will assess at the point of acceptance. You do need to give this some thought when using it to ensure that acceptance criteria are objective and never subjective as this will prove useless in case of a dispute if you have subjective criteria.

    Very nice template. I agree, something like this is really helpful. As a writer I really like it when a client takes the time to give me clear instructions. Sure, if someone says "I need two 500 word articles. Please use these two keywords." I can get the work done. Every once and a while though, I will get a client coming back to me with something like "You went the wrong direction, I am trying to sell so-and-so product and this is information about a different type of product." If you have specific requirements, you need to let the person you are outsourcing to know about them!

      Amanda, I usually use these work orders when dealing with new writers. It eliminates any miscommunications. Ive found once youve been dealing with someone a while, there's less need.

      BTW - How are my articles coming along?
