Outsourcing: Getting Professionals from Online Job sites

Set Up My ProductsHi Guys,

Following from my last three posts, Outsourcing: Why Outsource, and What Kinds of Jobs Must be Outsourced, Finding Professionals to Outsource Your Work to, , we are now going to look at how online job sites work.

Online job sites are the simply the best places for you to get your outsourcing professionals. Since they are the best places for you to get professionals to carry out the tasks that you don’t want to do or cannot do, let take a look at them in a little more detail.

Here are some of the advantages of getting your outsourcing professionals from these sites:-

  • People you will find on the job sites have registered there with the express intention of finding work. Many job sites are free to join, but some require paid memberships. Being a paid member may reflect a bit more on their sincerity about being professional. Hence, you can be sure you get some sincere people to give your work to.

  • There are various ways in which you can find how good a particular worker is. Every job site has a rating and review system (for the employee as well as the employer). This can help you decide on the employee.

  • All websites have an escrow system. This takes care of all disputes. Once an escrow (written agreement) is made, the website can and will arbitrate any problems that arise.

  • You can make detailed project posts, outlining clearly what you want done, the time frame and budget you can afford. People make bids accordingly, so you can be sure you won’t have to bargain.

  • You can ask people to show samples of their past work.

  • You can also invite people to bid on your project.

It is very simple to post projects on online job sites. Many of them, like GetAFreelancer, allow you to post projects for free (though they do take a $5 refundable deposit for each project you post). All you have to do is post all the details of the work as you want it, spell out the time frame and the budget you can offer and post it in the relevant category.

Once your project is live, which is instantaneous, people start bidding. Then, all you have to do is to look at the bids closely and make your decision on whom to select for your job.

You cannot communicate personally with the bidders till you select them. However, there is a private message board that helps you communicate with them, subject to certain restrictions (like you cannot give out your personal contact details in any way). This may help you make a better decision about whom to select.

Many people are forging fruitful and long-term work relationships through these online freelance job sites, irrespective of geographical barriers, and getting mutual benefits. Without the hassle of actually needing employers on their premises, they are able to get their work done professionally and, in most cases, in cheaper ways as well.

Please feel free to leave a comment below. I would really love to hear from you.

Until the next time.

Have a great day.
