Freelancers Outsourcing Website Development To Freelancers
You are a freelancer who is curious about outsourcing website development to another freelancer.
Maybe you’ve had bad experiences outsourcing website development in the past or have heard horror stories from friends.
Over the last decade, I’ve personally experienced the full spectrum of feelings about outsourcing — pure joy, satisfaction, disappointment, anger, surprise, and sadness.
I outsource WordPress development daily, and almost every single project I’ve worked on over the last 5 years has had components developed by an outsourced freelancer.
Even with all that experience, I still have good days and bad days with my outsourced team.
Together, we will have a conversation about:
- Why outsourcing goes good.
- Why outsourcing goes bad.
- How to get the best results from your outsourced freelance web dev freelancer.
- How to choose where to outsource (locally, USA, India, Pakistan, Mexico, Phillippines, Colombia, Uruguay, etc.)
- How to outsource your first website development project.
- Best practices for managing your outsourced web dev freelancer.
Before the session, please take a minute to answer these 2 quick questions about your experience outsourcing.
Toby Cryns is co-founder of MSPWP and has helped organized multiple WordCamps and other WordPress events and is regularly helping others feel empowered by WordPress.
He owns The Mighty Mo! and has 6 plugins available for free in the WordPress.org plugin repo with a combined total of over 10,000 active installs.
