      Today, we more or less need to be, to make much sense out of the threads on the front page of the Main Marketing Forum, it seems.

      Many are a mystery to me.

      And among the others, a significant proportion of the responses seem to have absolutely nothing at all to do with the question originally asked (which was quite often asked last year or the year before, anyway). Sometimes my concentration's poor and the "fault" can easily be mine, in these instances, but I've certainly been thinking "Is it them, or is it me?" a little more than usual, today.

      It must be Friday, or something.

    Since this is an internet marketing forum, the poster is probably asking about tasks such as writing, programming, design, etc.

    However Matt, it does kind of depend on the task. I find that oDesk is good for simple, monotonous tasks- though I did find an EXCELLENT copywriter on there. Sometimes you can find good people on Craigslist. And of course, there are tons of other freelance sites.

    Good luck with your expansion.

        Since I was so quick to sound critical, I'll try to be quick to help, too (with the bits where I possibly can ) ...

        There are many members here advertising the availability of Philippines-based VA's in their signature-files. Have a click-around, and see what you find?

        I employ a Filipino VA myself, and have made some suggestions on "how to find them" and obervations about screening them, and so on, in several posts in this recent thread: http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ml#post9286858

        You'll perhaps need to look no further than here: http://www.warriorforum.com/copywrit...directory.html

        I suggest you send a p.m. to this Warrior, who kind of specializes in that and whose writing I can vouch for and unreservedly recommend: View Profile: Lucian Lada

        Can't help you with the others. Good luck!

    You find new staff at Odesk or Elance.

    If you need a developer, elance is better. But if you need a writer or personal assistant you may give Odesk a try.

    I have used odesk and elance. Elance is my favorite because I had one writer that did not do a job and there was not any problem in getting my money back. I have hired writers on their that did high quality work. Hope this helps.

      Which one from your experience had the hardest working people? I am looking for quality, I am sick and tired of hiring people with not work ethic.

      I had some bad experience with odesk, but maybe I just got unlucky.
