Following is the List of sites I have compiled to outsource your Business tasks:
Pay only for verified time spent working for you – Odesk’s Team Room feature allows you to see each of team members activity levels (keyboard and mouse activity), and feedback (Work diary), as well as web cams and screenshots of their computer to make workers more accountable.
When you hire a worker you need to create payment milestones, as milestones are completed, payment is released. Many bidders help to reduce the bidding price but quality might get suffered thus hire carefully
You can hire by the hour or by the project and then track progress in your “Workroom” where you can View and manage work-in-progress online instead of on-site.
If you want personalized attention and best of quality then this site is best suited for you. They have a clearly defined process and some lucrative discount offers for small business and startups. Payments are done on milestone basis. This option is best suited for those who are just starting to outsource.
Online marketplace offering tasks and services, referred to as 'gigs' beginning at a cost of $5 per job performed, from which it gets its name. This platform is great when you need to have a small job done or a repeated job to be done over a period of time. The real knack is to find the best person to do your job in seemingly similar people.
Thanks ryantc for adding your inputs.
Very glad to know about your information,quite funny website.
A new platform www.mycrowd.com has also just launched and I have been using them to get great results. They aggregate the workers on Odesk and elance plus integrate with different software so you dont have to login into a freelance platform everytime you need to check a task or write a message.
