    The same as you would get anyone else?

    I often just overpay people for work they do.

    The only guy I outsource on a regular is millions of miles away.

    So the only thing I can offer is a bit of extra cash on his usual wage.

    I don't even know his birthday

    You're awesome. When I'm hiring outsourcers full time I'm going to remember this post. Find out there birthdays and give them the day off, also make it a surprise. Seriously good karma

      My wife and I anniversary falls on one of our employees birthday (Customer support, so I am the back up ). I always tell her she can have the day off, but I think they are soo happy. Last year she like a week before said I will doing laundry at home so you guys enjoy your anniversary and I will work. I thought that was pretty cool...

      Here is the truth - treat them well, you will pay less, get more productivity and everyones happy

    I sent her a 1,000 Peso and my wife got mad at me.

    After some yelling, I gotta say it was like $20.

    Then she is like stop talking Peso with

    Here is a hint on outsourcing, always talk Peso with them, it shows them you are polite and if they start understanding US money, they have likely gone through enough jobs and would cost more.

    Cheers,

    I asked some of my guys in India about this once. They were really into music, although that may be changing considering how easy it is to download music these days.

    I've also found that any kind of US products that aren't available in whatever country the worker is in, like candy or some other low-priced novelty, work well.

    You know what, just a client remembering staff's birthday and a greeting is good enough. Cash gift will make his day. But hey, cash gift and day off, that is the greatest!

    If you have people in Philippines, then they have a custom to get 1/2 salary after 6 months of working and 1 month full salary after 12 months of working.

    You can also buy some gadgets for them, which are very high priced there in there country.

    Visa gift card or amazon gift card ... give the person $25 USD, that's nice money for someone in India or China.

    If the outsourced person's payable amount is $190, I'll give $200
    If the outsourced person's payable amount is $242, I'll give $250
    If the outsourced person's payable amount is $92, I'll give $100

    That's good enough from me. Just round up and pay. It's already a good gift.

    It works for me.

    just give them an extra bit of cash, thats the best thing you can give them in my opinion and usually the most beneficial.

    Yeah I agree - a little bonus (extra cash) for your worker. It would make them really happy

    Such a great heart to also know their birthdays and give them gifts. Well, I give them gifts as well through extra pays everytime they have an excellent work done especially on every new project.

    Usually, I just send an extra chunk of cash for a job well done or a birthday. For example, I once worked with a minisite designer who charged around $87 for a basic site. After completing four or five jobs for me, I sent him a $50 to motivate and thank him (I imagine it's a chunk of cash in China).

    On the other hand, it also meant I expected him to answer my e-mails and be available on weekends
