Five Places to Find Quality Freelancers Online

By

You simply can’t run your entire Internet business all by yourself. There are tasks you’re not good at or that take too painfully long and waste precious hours of your day. But hiring help that’s too cheap can cost you even more when they deliver shoddy work. I thought I’d list here the places I look for freelance workers. These are places where you can find high quality services at low cost, read on …..

Elance – www.elance.com

Most people who work online know about Elance but I thought I’d list it here because I still find it to be the best. You can find any type of freelancer you need and unlike vWorker and other freelance sites, it lets you reach out to them first (you don’t have to post a job and wait). The quality of work you find there may not be as great as going directly with a professional, but I’ve gotten very good work done there and it’s cheap.

oDesk – www.odesk.com

oDesk is similar to Elance but it has one major difference – it has tools that let you manage the job as it’s in progress. You can keep tabs on your freelancer workers and see what they’re doing. This is a nice added protection if you’re worried about them ripping you off or doing a lousy job, but it also allows you to help them work better if you have ideas. The only downside is that oDesk’s fees are a bit higher than Elance and other sites.

Craigslist – www.craigslist.org

Craigslist is often overlooked as a place to find freelancers, but you can find great help here. The downside is that unlike a freelance site, you’re on your own. You have to discuss terms and build trust with the freelancer directly (in other words, no escrow system or anything for protection). But professional service providers like designers and writers regularly check Craigslist, and not so much Elance or vWorker, when looking for new clients.

Warrior Forum – www.warriorforum.com

Warrior Forum is the world’s biggest Internet marketing forum and it has a section for hooking up with freelancers. Quality of services offered here range quite a bit but since it’s geared toward online businesses, you can find all kinds of services. Like Craigslist, it’s up to you to negotiate yourself with freelancers without any kind of interface. You have to join the forum first in order to use it.

99designs – www.99designs.com

99designs is a site that specializes in design work. It has a unique system where you the client hold ‘contests.’ You’ve probably hired designers and not been happy with the work before. Well, on 99designs, you can pick which design you like the best. Since the freelancers there aren’t necessarily professionals, the work can vary a great deal in quality. The contests system allows you to pick the one you like best.

Wherever you search for freelancers, try to build long-term relationships with repeat jobs. This way, they’ll gain a strong understanding of what you’re trying to do with your online business.
