8 3279

Now, what we just covered were the two options to find a team member, someone who will work for you part time or full time.  Now we are going to talk about outsourcing projects or one time jobs.

There are many sites that allow you to post the job you need to get done and people will bid on doing that project for you.

Here's the list of the sites we use.

1.  http://www.hireonodesk.com

2. http://www.elance.com

3. http://www.guru.com

We recommend that you look at each one and register for them – it's free.  Then explore which one is best for what you are trying to accomplish.


Ok, now I'm about to reveal to you a site that I'm totally addicted to .. are you ready (drum roll please …. ) ->  http://www.fiverr.com/

Tada!  Now if you use fiverr.com you know why I am addicted! If you haven't used it before it's a site that you can use to find jobs that people will do for you for just $5 .  And yes people will do just about anything for $5!

Now, before you go crazy on this site, let me give you a little insight on how I use it effectively.

Ok.. here are the steps:

Step 1: Search for the tasks you'd like to have done.  for example ‘article writing'  Click the search button.


fiverr, fiverr.com. outsourcing






Step 2: Once the results pop up you'll see the option to sort them by Auto , Popularity, and Ranking.

Fiverr, fiverr.com, outsourcing







Step 3: Sort by Popularity and review the results on the first page, then sort by Ranking and review the result on the first page.









Step 4: Now you can review the people that are ranked the highest for ‘article writing' and hire accordingly.  Looking at ranking will give you the people that have the best feedback and are really dedicated to delivering good value to their clients.  Everyone will have some negative feedback, so read the feedback, look for a rating of 95% positive or higher and your chances of having success with this person will be very high!








Caution: Fiverr.com is addicting!  I've hired people to do all sorts of tasks! I've also bought handmade things that they will ship (for an extra fee)  yes mom , that hand painted tile I sent you – that was from fiverr.com!  = )

So, if there are tasks in your business that you know would be better to outsource – do it!  Let me know how it goes by coming back here and posting a comment!  Any questions? … post a comment and I'll help you = )

To your success,

Alicia Lyttle



  1. Hi Alicia,

    Ive been visiting your blog ever since I discovered it at DomainDiving, looking for useful ideas regarding domains…Ive been reading your outsourcing tips and learned a lot from it. Im glad to hear that you’re using one of my resources (fiverr) as well which brings some confident to myself that I also knew something other than reading your blog (LOL). You were right about the site, it is really a good option since they offer different (some are even rare) kind of tasks for 5bucks. Most of all, you can read buyers’ feedbacks wherein you have an idea what are the sellers weaknesses prior of ordering a gig.

    Looking forward for your next post.

  2. Just got a tweet from ya. thought I would stop by and see what you are all about! You got a good thing going here. Keep up the good work. Gotta run now. But I’ll be back!

  3. OMG! I love fiverr…yes, it is addicting. My name is Monika and I am addicted to fiverr lol! But seriously, it is a great tool to help with small tasks. I didnt think about sorting by ranking, i just browse around. thanks for that tip! 🙂

  4. I LOVE Fiverr and have gotten ALL of my design work there.

    My graphic designer from Indonesia kills it every single time.

    I’ve paid a fortune in the past for design work and honestly, this is the best I’ve seen up to now!
