If you’ve finally made a decision on what you need, and have chosen someone to complete the assignment or project, or if you’re in the infant stages of listing your project, be sure you thoroughly state your needs. For example, if you need content written, list the topics the content will be about. Include the number of words you need as well as the number of articles written. Be sure to list the price that you are willing to pay for the articles, whether as a completed set, per word, or per article.
This way, eligible candidates know ahead of time exactly what you are looking for, and how much you’re willing to pay.
For coding jobs, show candidates an example of your site. Let them know in as much detail as possible the type of coding you will need and what needs to be done. For all listings, be as thorough as possible in regards to what your business is about. State the type of business you have, the attitude you’re looking for, and the tone. What you say in your “help wanted” listing is crucial, since this will be what people look at in order to decide whether or not they want to assist you with the project.
Devise an outline of each project you need completed. Write it down clearly, and know exactly what you want to see accomplished, as well as your goals and timeframe for completion. Then, pass these requirements on to the person you choose to do the job.
This will help them get a very clear concise picture of what it is you’re exactly looking for. If you try hard to make it as simple yet detailed as you can, the odds are in your favor that the person you pick to finish the project will do it to your liking and your specs. Remember, a project is only as good as the person who created it, so by giving very simple yet clear instructions, you’ll see much better results.
If you need an ebook written, let people know exactly what you need in regards to the subject and the length of the book. If you need it written in chapters, specify that. If you need the person writing the ebook to state all references they use, be sure to list that as well.
By being as specific as possible, you can assure that the project will be completed per your needs and that the person competing it will do the job to the best of his or her ability. This also saves time, since the candidate knows exactly what’s needed in advance and this leaves little room for errors or time-consuming editing.
When a job is done right the first time, it eliminates the back and forth of emailing, and saves you time from having to go over the submitted project and list all of the corrections needed.
All projects that are completed should include exactly what you’ve asked for, and in what format, so state this ahead of time. For example, if you need SEO content in Word format, the person needs to turn it in this way. If your ebook should be in PDF format this would apply as well, or a picture that you require to be in Adobe Photoshop format or JPG format. By being specific about the file format ahead of time, you are saving both yourself and the freelancer you’ve hired a lot of unnecessary headaches.
As stated before, be as clear and detailed as to what you need as possible, so there is less room for error and for edits
Thinking ahead of the curve will save you lots of time and money when it comes to outsourcing. By being open and honest, as well as upfront about what you need, you are helping to ensure you will get only the best people to complete your projects. Do not be afraid to turn work back over to the freelancer and have them fix any errors or problems. After all, this is your money and your business and anyone in freelancing already knows that it is their job to return high quality work to you.
Make sure you are very clear about what you want and need in advance and this will help you avoid problems later on.
Anything you pay money for as a business owner, whether it is a service offered by others such as web hosting, or an assignment you’ve given to someone to be outsourced, should be done to your utmost satisfaction. By using websites that hire or use highly qualified people, you are making sure you get the best of the best. After all, this is your time, your money, and your business.
All projects you receive should be completely finished and next to perfect before you pay for them. Don’t just accept second best. Never pay for a service or project unless it is finished, correct, and thorough. You can be sure this will happen if you already have a picture in your mind about what you want the project to look like or consist of. Knowing this in advance gives everyone a better edge to be successful.
