Who do you use for OUTSOURCING?

13 replies
Hi Fellow Warriors,

Here's the situation...

I've been working with an company that sells products online, and they want to bring me on "full-time" as there webmaster. They'd want me to implement a monthly traffic building strategy as well as be their web consultant, marketing consultant, and business consultant.

I don't mind taking on the client, but the only things is that I believe that at this point in my career if I'm working IN my business I'm not making any money. I need to be working ON my business.

I'm ready to let go of the reins and start to delegate task and outsource, but I don't know where to begin.

I know I'm going to need a SEO expert, a web programmer, video marketer, article writer and probably a copy writer too.

Any recommendations would help and would be greatly appreciated.

    I love Fiverr and can get just about everything done there. Also i go to sites like elance, rentacoder etc. Also, forums are great places to find help and outsource some stuff. You can post jobs needed at those places and wait till they contact you.

    OK, I do need to toot my own horn but if you need an article writer, I may be able to help you, depending on your needs.
    Other than that, my favourite site is vworker.com. I have done over 50 jobs and they do seem to have good people there.

    You will also find some great people within this forum if you look in the warrior for hire section.

    dhanediesil, I'm in the midst of doing all that. Especially when working for offline clients (and especially nowadays with all the changes by Google), I think it's important to not just outsource stuff without thinking. I wouldn't do that for my offline clients. I'm slowly training my outsourcers, but first I also need to know what I'm doing - learning it for myself and not depending on my outsourcer's technique or ways they've done it for other people. I have my own way of doing things and it's important to train them well I believe.

    I've gone mostly to odesk and always interview different people and work with a few. All this is hard work - coming up with one's own system and interviewing people, etc., but I think if stuff is done correctly from the start, there won't be that many future problems.

      Have to agree with this, I have two people from odesk now working for me. But I tell them what to do and how to do it. I would not trust their techniques.
