Upwork is a crowdsourcing tool where you can get jobs done by people from all over the world.
The way that the site works is that it’s like a reverse auction.
So, rather than beating the price up, people actually bid the price down.
So, what am I actually talking about?
Well, what you need to do is go there and set up account. Once you’ve done that you can then start posting jobs.
Jobs could be anything from designing a logo, to getting some copy written, maybe designing a PDF document or hundreds of other marketing and associated business tasks.
Their website lists hundreds of tasks that you can get done.
Once you post your job, candidates, workers, freelancers from all around the world will bid on your project but like I said rather than beating the price up, they bid the price down.
Then, you can select the person that you feel comfortable with. You can check out their references, experiences, there’s also star ratings as well … and if you like them you can then give them the job.
The budget agreed upon then sits in a holding account and when they have completed the job, and you are 100% happy with it, then the money gets released.
So, go ahead and check it out Upwork. You’ll be glad you did.
And if you already use it, let me know how it’s going.
