Overhauls at ELance

Topic: Helpful Ideas|


I’m a big fan of outsourcing, as it can really boost your personal productivity and workflow.  Most of my outsourcing comes on a local level, but I wanted to take a moment and point out one of the fantastic online resources for your outsourcing needs.  If you aren’t familiar with ELance, here’s a description in their own words:

Elance is a global solution that enables entrepreneurs and businesses to launch, build and grow their business from anywhere in the world.  The Elance platform allows businesses to easily find, hire, manage and pay highly qualified professionals – for exactly what they need, when they need it.  Now, business owners and managers can focus on what they do best – by outsourcing the rest.

Just recently, ELance has been concentrating on a variety of overhauls to benefit small business across the board.  Their new Water Cooler is an informal gathering of bright minds discussing and digesting the latest happenings in the freelance market.  I’d also recommend a stop at ELance University if you aren’t totally familiar with the process.

And just so you know, I recently concluded a contract with a development firm from India, and I must say it was a first class experience from start to finish.  While that might not always be the case,  ELance takes great care in screening and showcasing the available pool of outsourcd labor.

    Hey Liz, glad you found it useful. Be sure to review each bidders portfolio and work experience on ELance. Also, establish some form of communication in order to determine how big the language barrier will be. Good luck!
