    hey Guys,
    I'm just going through some tech issues and was wondering if anyone Outsources any work i.e script set-up etc and if so, what have you outsourced, who have you used and would you recommend them?

    hey gspot,

    while we had a full on in house staff for years, we have switched to using Odesk.com and have for 2 years.

    Best place to find the MOST Qualified outsourcers for development, marketing, admin work.

    Hey Jedi, I've used Odesk in the past...I have some mixed feelings about it. I had a designer quote me one price he ended up doubling the timeline as well as the budget. Thankfully, I had anticipated that already so it wasn't a big deal. However, if you've specifically used someone you liked PLEASE SHARE:girlshit:

    Hi Gspot,

    depends on what language the scripting is in - if its php I can make a referral.

    I think Odesk's usability is a function of how serious you are and state from the outset (as well as knowing exactly what you want and outlining it clearly) and hiring people with a PROVEN track record.

    And not to offend anyone, but I have stopped hiring people from India for development as it has ALWAYS produced subpar work. I head to the Eastern European developers (and Odesk lets you specify WHERE in the world you want to hire from).

    Hope that helps,

    Jedi

    Yeah, I tend to stay away from India as well. They are excited to get your business at a cheap price, however it comes with loads of headaches. Thanks!
