Where do I look to find outsourcing?

.

You want to make sure you find the right outsourcing partner. The first place you should look is in your own backyard, your neighbourhood.

.

Ask other business owners or your accountant, lawyer, or banker if they can recommend a provider offering the services you need.

.

Using online platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter make it easy to expand your personal networks and are places to ask for recommendations.

.

If that does not work for you, other options could include placing ads on work-at-home websites, for example:

.

Flexjobs http://www.flexjobs.com/telecommute/employers

.

The Home Worker – http://the-homeworker.com/

.

Upwork – https://www.upwork.com/

.

Work at Home Mom Revolution – http://workathomemomrevolution.com/  

. 

Rat Race Rebellion – https://ratracerebellion.com/

.

Workersonboard – http://www.workersonboard.com/

.

All Stay at Home – http://allstayathome.com 

.

FreelanceMom – www.freelancemom.com

.

After you’ve found a provider, your work isn’t over yet.

Ask for and check their references and then take the time to create a specific contract that outlines exactly what performance is expected.  

Explain your expectations and the steps included in the job clearly; never assume that contractors are thinking about what you’re thinking. It is very important that the requirements and expectations are laid out in the beginning, and don’t assume anything.
