Top Resources to Outsource
You can hire outsourcers from all over the world (I’m epsecially fond of countries OUTSIDE the US and UK as the cost of living in these countries is astronomical in comparison to India or the Phillipines). Check out these sites:
- vWorker.com (formerly rent-a-coder)
- Fiverr.com (I love this one!!)
But what do you think? Can outsourcing work for you? What has been your experience with it?
