    You don't need others, that is enough. You doing research is that the reason.

    Those marketplaces are good enough.

    Another well known marketplace is Warriors For Hire

      IMO, Warriors For Hire this one is good after oDesk and Elance.

        I really wouldn't consider Warriors For Hire to even be on the same level as the others. There's no real rating system or time tracking system that can be used by either party - it's just a place for posting advertisements.

  • Check out Microlancer, that's another one. I don't know how busy it is though.

    You'll be amazed how much you can get done with the sites you've mentioned. They are well known and they will protect you with escrow so that you get what you paid for. Like mentioned up top this is sufficient.

    Good luck!

    Like everyone else said, you've listed pretty much all the main ones. You can find everything you'll ever need on those. If you want more specified jobs, you could always look at Fiverr Clones but they don't have too many services on sale and usually don't produce the same quality that Fiverr does.

  • Those sites are good if you're looking for contractors for part-time or project based work. But eventually, you would want someone full-time. If you want someone to work for you full-time, like a VA, you could try onlinejobs.ph or the warriors for hire section.

    You can check out Staff.com. The site is for full time or part time work.
    That's the great thing about the site because you will have a reliable steady income, not just occasional jobs here and there.

      This one. I like how Staff.com provides full-time work ensuring that you get a stable job from remote work.

      It's worth considering especially right now that telecommuting and remote work are starting to become the future of work.

    Quick example of the power of Odesk.

    I have a new video course that I just finished but i'm doing the finishing touches to it and this morning I posted a job for a banner for the membership site and hired a guy who provided 6 different examples and I chose 1 which he delivered the files for within 3 hrs of posting the job and hiring him based on me messaging him a couple times and his replys..

    He only charged me $5.56!! So I created the job and had my banner better than I expected within 3 hours for less than the price of lunch for me ..

    The possibilities are endless! My first example of outsourcing was back about 5 yrs ago I needed a custom website for my financial local business and eveywhere I went in Miami I was being quoted between $3000 and $4500, I found script lance (which is freelancer now) and a college student from the Ukraine did an even better website with more options and customizations than I initially wanted and only paid $140 for it!

    Ever since then I could just go with story after story of how much time and money i've saved and made because of these awesome sites..

    I would recommend them to anyone. Key is communication, before you hire someone communicate with them a few times to be 100% sure they understand your needs as well as they comprehend what you are telling them as do you because language can be a problem if not addressed from the start, all you do if this arises is you move to the other candidates and believe me you will always have options.

    I agree as well with the list you outlined. I have had better luck with India based resources for technical (e.g. programming) projects and the philippines for VA/admin resources.

    All I can say is use due diligence. For every good comment on here about outsourcing via Elance, ODesk, etc. etc. I will quote 20 bad experiences.

    Use forums, recommendations, don't look for "cheap".

    These are the best places for outsourcing the work. But sometimes when i have a very low budget and don,t want to pay commissions to these outsourcing website. I go to facebook freelancer groups and hire some directly.

    It completely hinges on upon the sort of work that you are doing. Peopleperhour.com got my attention since it is one of the first locales I've seen to have a Facebook or Linkedin login process. Like the different administrations here, they make it simple to post work and begin appropriating offers immediately. The normal work gets pretty nearly 16 bids.


    I started my first freelance work from Elance and Freelancer.com; they are good but need times to get a job. I heard of Amazon Mechanical Turk, not tried yet. My next try would be Amazon Mechanical Turk.

    I would never consider Freelancer.com as good. Full of scams, and the 'customer service' is horrendous. Just Google that one.

    I've had a number of 5 figure mobile apps developed on oDesk. Fine, but would I do it again? No.

    They save money short term, but that's probably it.

      So, you find both freelancer and oDesk full of scams?
