This site offers a great way to reach out to multiple resources to find the right one at the perfect price for each job you need done.
I have to say I deal with customer service almost daily with the industry I am in.. between running recording studios and gear.. to photography and gear. graphic design and gear... always dealing with customer service....the best customer service I have always sworn by as being the best in the industry is sweet water sound..... until I delt with Vaneeta M on outsourse...she makes sweet water sound look like rookies... if Vaneeta M is not in charge of training people for great customer service with a huge raise... then something is seriously wrong ... call sweet water sound sometime and check out the amazing customer service there.... Vaneeta M could even improve them in quality customer service... and I never thought it could get better then that.. until I worked with Vaneeta M
This is an easy and efficient way to get work done.
My freelancer was terrific.I did send an email to support and received back an unclear response. I also have since discovered that freelancers must pay to use the site. I feel that walks very close to an ethical red line. I would not pay a headhunter to find me a job, why should these people have to do so? Not clearly unethical, but it will make me look for other options before using this site for another project.
Nice to know that there is access to qualified sources of assistance. Like the format. Would be nice to know where to push the button to release funds to the outsourcee. Will use this service again.
I used Outsource the first time for 6 months and during that time I booked about 3 jobs and made roughly $600. I came back and signed up again and this time the minimum membership was 12 months at $50 a month, which is is a sizable investment to not have any guarantee that you'll get any work. My second time around I wasn't having as much luck and I had decided to try to cancel my membership. But, per the terms, I would have to pay $300 for early cancellation. The customer rep I spoke with had my account Manager Veneeta contact me to discuss possible solutions for the low response rate I was seeing. Vaneeta was great. She was helpful and funny and in the end, she offered to send letters of recommendations on my behalf to the jobs I had applied for. I haven't gotten hired yet, but one of the jobs did contact me and I feel hopeful that it may turn into work.I know it's frustrating to watch money just go down the drain, but if your work is good and you're willing to let Outsource Acct Managers help you, you may find success on this site. One last question for Outsource, if you are charging a membership fee, why then do you also take a cut of the designer's earnings? Shouldn't it be one or the other?
I gave a 5 because outsource themselves haven't given me cause to leave much less. I have asked for a refund after two days as my gut intuition and common sense parlay artists could possibly waste some grief and possibly dough with the clients. Many quotes go unanswered, another source of unfunded frustration. At first I thought wow, tons of jobs there, but no. if it doesn't work move on and try something else I guess; that's life.
Lots of skilled folks apart of this network.
Easy way to find clients for online, freelance work. There are a lot of new jobs regularly. Recommended!

I love how the freelancers submit bids relative to my budget. I've worked with two and have been very pleased with the results. It's great that I can re-contract someone that I've worked well with, without posting the job to all. Would definitely recommend as a source for talent!I was not aware that freelancers had to "pay" for the privilege of bidding on jobs via credits. Shouldn't the cost be owned by the one submitting the job bid? I paid 10% of the accepted bid to you for each job I posted. I received 20 bids for a job and opened several proposals to determine the applicants ability to perform the job. Freelancers should NOT be "charged/penalized" if I open their proposal. Their credits should only be used when they accept my offer. Ideally, they shouldn't have to pay for credits at all.
The title says it all. This is WAY better than other similar services I've tried.
