Be the Outsourcing

Written by Ryan Ambrose  · January 20, 2009

On occasion, online entrepreneurs have to outsource potions of their latest projects. No one can do everything well, and sooner or later, they’ll have to hire someone to do it for them. Things like web design, programming, writing, or video creation are examples of things that get outsourced. If you can do one or more of those things, you can make money by being the outsourced help.

There are some ups and downs to this technique. The biggest up side is that you get paid regardless of the success or failure of the clients. You do a good job for them, of course, but once you’ve given them what you were hired to create, your part in the matter is done. This cuts your risk considerably, and insures that any work you do will be paid no matter what happens afterwords.

The down side is that you don’t have the opportunity to make as much as you would with direct sales or promoting someone else’s products. Business people takes those risks for a reason, and that’s the chance to make large sums of money. You can still make money, but you’re potential may not be quite as much as another type of entrepreneur.

Still, freelancing is a good way to monetize a skill, and if you want to go this route, here are a few things you’ll need:

  • A web site decribing what you do and other things to help sell your services. Those would include automated lead collection, samples of your previous work, and easy navigation so you don’t annoy potential customers away.
  • Some means of promotion, especially those that let you build credibility for your expertise.
  • A reliable form of payment collection that takes credit cards, like PayPal. Furthermore, never create a project until you have payment in hand. Some people may hire you frivolously, but you can minimize the risk they’ll waste your time by getting paid in advance.

If you have skills, you can put them to use for others to make money online. You took the time to learn them, and using them to make some extra cash is a perfectly legitimate way to go.

    If someone wants to be a freelancer, it is better to use escrow. I like escrow because once a money is escrowed, both parties have partial right to either release or free the money.

    Outsourcing is the alternative money generating way, especially during this recession period, when there’s more and more employees have being fired…

    Outsourcing is a great way to save money. Outsourcing employees from countries such as India and the Philippines has been one of the most common ways to hire virtual employees at very cheap rates.

    outsourcing really helps, but why not actually outsource to the freelancers who have been kicked out of their job due to recessionary measures.
