Podcast: Tips for hiring contractors on Upwork and Fiverr
| April 09, 2021
Need help creating a compelling landing page or blog post? Maybe you’d like ongoing help from a virtual assistant, graphic designer, or website expert — but don’t know where to look. If the hassles of finding competent contracting help have led you to put off the search, it might be time for you to give Upwork and Fiverr a look.
In this episode, I explain my favorite strategies for hiring contractors using Upwork and Fiverr. I share my top tips for saving time and money as well as best practices for using these sites to outsource graphics, writing, programming, or other projects in your practice.
This “highlight” is taken from Q&A calls with my Mastermind Gold group — a highly interactive, supportive group where people who have tons of questions and concerns about how to start, grow, or transition to a cash-based private practice get the answers, resources, and confidence they need to build the practice of their dreams. We have a group coaching call every week, and we occasionally use excerpts of those calls for this podcast.
More specifically, I discuss these topics related to hiring on Upwork and Fiverr:
- How you can make sure the most-desirable candidates actually see your job posting on Upwork so they can apply for the job.
- The key requirement you’ll want to set up for an hourly project so you can avoid paying a whole lot for very little.
- Which types of projects are well-suited to the contractors you’ll find on Fiverr.
- How to test a contractor for a long-term assignment to be sure they’ll be a good fit for your needs — before you invest a lot of time or money.
- The tool that allows you to keep your passwords secure while still allowing contractors access to the accounts they need in order to work for you.
