Today I thought I’d talk about Elance. What is Elance? Well quite simply if you are a bit of a techno-phobe, like me, then doing a lot of these internet based tasks can be rather daunting, and difficult, to say the least. Step forward Elance. It’s a place to get everything done for you, which is called outsourcing. When I say everything, I mean everything. From creating graphic headers to complete websites, from simple ads or blog posts, to complete ebooks or audio products. Everything is catered for.
As you can see from the video above, when you get to elance you can either just post your project so that workers can bid on it, like ebay in reverse, or you can browse the workers in a particular category and choose that way. With either method you get to decide using many factors. Do you need someone local because of language issues? Do you need it quickly or is money a factor?
One really vital part is feedback. You can view all the feedback a particular worker has received during their time on elance. Of course, as with any other type of feedback some people feel it necessary to slant the worker because of the smallest issue, so make your own judgement on that one.
I’ve been using elance for quite sometime now in the offline world as well as the online world, and I have to say it really makes life a lot easier. Everything can be achieved even if you can’t do. Not only that, but you get it done in half the time because it leaves you free to do the things you can do, manage!
If I were you, as soon as finance is not an issue, start outsourcing your work and get it done faster, it made a huge difference to me and will you too.
to your success
