Other people rush through the process, ending up in disaster because they didn’t offer any real services. So, cautious and take your time to choose the correct outsourcer.
2. Don’t be afraid to pay high
These outsource professionals work hard at offering you good service, so treat them well by giving them some good pay. Never undermine them by offering them bad pay. When you do that, you may lose him or her. However, I know some of you may have the financial issue of paying this freelance worker(s). In this case, you just need to start making money yourself first (like I did), then when you have the cash, you can cleverly re-invest them to grow your business by hiring freelance worker(s).
3. Use freelance website
Learning how to outsource your work is not difficult at all. Most people believe that it takes lots of time to find a good outsourcer. It’s really not that hard to find somebody online who can provide articles, web copy, submission, site building, graphic design, and all sorts of different services.

On Fiverr, you’ll find many people offering all sorts of services for only $5. Some people offer graphic design services, articles, Facebook fans, and almost anything that you can think of for only $5. You may be shocked at how many services you’ll find on this website. I am currently using services provided in this site. It comes in really handy and you choose service provider that have good ratings.
No matter what you’re looking for, you can find a great outsourcer through Craigslist. On these classified ads, you can write about what you’re looking for and what your requirements are, allowing you to find clients that are going to actually help you accomplish what you want. The cheapest Craiglist freelance I found was from Philipines. You can browse the site and simply choose which service provider you want to outsource. You can asked and discuss with them first before engaging with them.
On Guru.com, you can post a job just like you would on CraigList, but this site allows only outsourcing work to be offered, and the nice part is that they put the money in escrow when you find a service provider. Guru.com is very much respected in the outsourcing industry, and I guarantee that you you’ll find a great outsourcer from this site.
