HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Enjoy….


 
So…

Hopefully you didn’t mind my little rant and you found today’s video at least a little informative/helpful 🙂

NOTE: I was super serious about my #1 SECRET TO GETTING QUALITY WORK DONE!! So make sure that you do it if you can!

Here are the sites I was talking about in the video if you need something outsourced.

http://Elance.com
http://VWorker.com

Also, remember…

1. BE ULTRA CLEAR AND DESCRIPTIVE about what you want. (better to have too much detail than too little).

2. Pictures, Videos, & Examples of other websites that are doing what you want done will help assure that you get what you’re looking for. Be sure to include this stuff when describing the project you want to have done use this to record your screen:

3. Do not ASSUME they know what you mean. Outsourcers from overseas (generally speaking) are GREAT at following explicit directions and HORRIBLE at thinking on their own. If you didn’t tell them to do (or not do) something, then it’s your fault that it wasn’t done correctly.

4. Don’t just say to them “Get Me Traffic”. Tell them exactly WHAT you want them to do.

Don’t say “build my twitter for me”. INSTEAD SAY “I’m looking to grow my twitter following with the type of people that are interested in (insert niche), here are the steps to making that happen:

blah blah blah
blah blah blah
blah blah blah

I would like for you to follow 200 people per day (or whatever number)

SO…

1. PLEASE leave a comment below and let me know your thoughts (and if you have any questions).

2. PLEASE pass this on to any other home business entrepreneurs you know (facebook friends, twitter friends, etc).

    Hi Devon, I am on of your former students, and I have to say, this video was very, very informative, I am in the beginning of my business and really needed that advice.
    thank you man, you are the best

  2. Hi Devon,

    Great video with excellent advise, local outsourcring is always the better bet when funds allow especially when they’re supplying one of your business services, plus being local they are far easier to contact for you and your customers being in the same timezone etc.

    Although for a project, hiring someone from the far east can be useful for keeping the costs down as some of them can be real wizz kids when you get the right person, but as you say, you will need to be extremely specific as to what it is you want done.

    For projects like creating a desktop software tool or a WordPress Plug-in, it is far more advisable to get a price for the entire job rather than an hourly rate as you don’t want to end up paying for three weeks work when they’ve knocked it out in a day, also when you pay per job you tend to find the project get completed a lot quicker so you will be able to take it to market that much sooner.

    For such projects, it’s also imperative that you tell them that the finished item will be solely your property once completed and that they will not have any rights to it other than for their own personal use, that’s because you don’t want to pay a few hundred to get a software created and then find the person you hired is later selling it themselves in direct competition with you.

    I tend to find most people say that they just can’t afford to outsource, my reply is well, try to estimate how long it’ll take you to get that task done yourself, then work out how much you could earn in that time by doing something you’re really good at, …. that’s your outsourcing budget.

    Cheers
    David.
