  • Questions from Members:

    Question: Are you familiar with offering services you broker through Fiverr and is that a good idea?

    My answer: I have mixed feelings. I’m generally suspicious of sites that commoditize these kinds of services because I think it devalues the services themselves and I think a lot of times the quality of work is lower. However, if you’re able to find a good team to put on a project for your clients and make a decent amount of money by being the project manager, it may be worthwhile.

    I think you could do better partnering with local service professionals, though and organizing work with them because, while their rates won’t be as competitive, they’ll become good sources of referrals, which could ultimately mean more clients and more money for you.

    Question: I’m writing a white paper on the benefits of outsourcing work to a freelancer web writer rather than hiring an in house copywriter. Can you recommend resources to support the arguments in favor of freelancers?

    My answer:
    Your idea of putting together a mini white paper about the advantages of working with freelancers is a good one.

    I would look to entrepreneur.com, forbes.com, and http://www.businessownersideacafe.com/ for ideas and research. You’ll have to hunt a little, but I’ve found all three to have good information.
