Every successful Internet Marketer understands the necessity of outsourcing.
As a business owner, you’re looking at the bottom line… If you’re not good with Adobe Photoshop, you don’t frustrate yourself and waste time trying to learn it just so you can create your business logo or product box graphic do you?
No.. You outsource it. You pay someone who already knows Adobe Photoshop and has professional experience creating logos/box graphics to do it for you.
You work smarter, not harder.
Unfortunately, when you’re just starting out or don’t have any experience outsourcing, it can be intimidating and frustrating trying to find a good outsourcer. Lucky for you, you met me.
Any time a client asks me if I could recommend a starting point for finding reliable outsourcers.. I always suggest going to Fiverr.com.
If you’re not familiar with Fiverr, it’s an Internet Marketers “pie in the sky” where you can find freelancers willing to do practically anything from professional logo design… to a 30 second youtube clip standing in front of the Eiffel tower promoting your product or service for $5+ …
You can find a freelancer willing to complete your gig/service for as low as $5 on fiverr, and you’ll have plenty of options to choose from when you run your search query.
Obviously, There’s always a bad apple in the bunch, but it can be avoided by using your best judgement and being sure that you look at and consider the reviews, average turnaround time, and double check for any fine print in the description etc before selecting your outsourcer.
Additionally, make sure they don’t automatically upsell you with any “add-ons” you might not need.. be sure that any marketing material you purchase includes rights to be used for profit; some vendors will offer this as an add on, others will not expressly prohibit it.
Be sure that you cover all bases when choosing your outsourcer.
Once you purchase your gig and complete payment, you’ll be redirected to a form that will ask you more specific questions related to your order. Complete this questionnaire in detail and wait to hear from your outsourcer with any followup questions or updates regarding your order.
When your order is completed, you will be given the opportunity to leave a review and request any final revisions, changes or updates.. at which time you can either request changes or close and complete the order which then releases payment to your outsourcer.
Be sure to leave reviews on your gig order experience. I’ve cultivated dozens of reliable outsourcer relationships through Fiverr.com.
Not only is it a place to find outsourcers, but it’s also a place to consider offering your own services as well. Do you have an experience to share about Fiverr?
