I’ve been doing a slow burn and thought I’d share it with you. I recently joined a website that’s intended to be an outsourcing website for writers, web designers, programmers, etc. Freelancers place bids on projects: I think you probably know where this is heading!
Their straplines say it all! check this out:
The world’s largest outsourcing marketplace!
How would your business change if you had virtually unlimited labor at next to no cost?
I kid you not! Their writing projects essentially pay less than pennies each for articles. Businesses expect to get quality writers of, let’s say for example, a batch of 700-word articles for payments of $8 per article. And many are even worse than this. Needless to say, I’m unsubscribing from their website!
I wish there was some way to put these guys out of business!! They really make me see red.
Thanks for letting me vent!
