As entrepreneurs are well aware of, hiring can be a difficult task. There are a lot of factors to consider when hiring contractors; factors such as the quality of work, contract or long term hire, finding the right person for the job and of course the expense itself. Considering the expense alone can be a daunting task but today it couldn’t be easier! Why? Because now we have a vast number of CROWDSOURCING PLATFORMS that provide freelance tasks at a tiny fraction of the price. Consider this, for the logo designs to many of my websites it cost me a measly $5. How about voice overs for $5? The podcast intro & closer with full production cost me a mere $15! How about that steal? You can do just that at crowdsourcing sites like FIVERR. You can even have people outsource wacky tasks like handing out flyers of your business or provide a puppet skit (yes, I just said puppet skit). 99DESIGN is another crowdsourcing site that allows designers to compete for your business when designing logos, book covers, brochures, banner ads and t-shirts. You tell them what you want, buy a package and have them compete for your business! They the provide you with multiple designs to choose from before making your purchase.
If small freelance projects don’t excite you then how about outsourcing tasks like having a virtual assistant? oDesk is a crowdsourcing site tailored for jobs just like that. At oDesk you can hire freelance contracts in fields like Sales & Marketing, Accounting, Web & Mobile Development and even content Writers. Did I mention they’re all at a fraction of the price that they would normally costs? Having the crowd work on your projects has never been easier but this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Crowdsourcing is also available for tackling some of the world’s toughest problems! Innovative crowdsourcing sites like INNOCENTIVE allows the world’s smartest people to compete in providing ideas on business, social, scientific and technical challenges! The possibilities are endless! Amazon owned mTurk is another crowdsourcing site that allows people to coordinate the use of human intelligence to perform tasks (often very simple tasks) such as taking surveys and deciphering bad handwriting. Entrepreneurs cannot outsource, through the crowd, just about anything they can imagine at prices once thought unimaginable. Have fun with the endless possibilities!
