If you are a business owner, chances are you’ve heard of virtual support services like oDesk and Elance. As the freelance economy has been booming, these services have become more saturated with what they call “talent.”
We say that skeptically because horror stories run amuck about working with these services. Here is how they work: A company puts out a job description for a project they’re looking to fill, like web design or a blog. Contractors respond to the request, and the company then sorts through all the responses in order to choose the one they think will work the best. This, as you can imagine, is an extremely time-consuming process. Many freelancers even setup automatic messages to be sent out to each new job request so they never miss a listing.
Many of these services are loaded with contractors from all around the world, enabling companies to pay very low prices for work. But in the world of business, what you pay for is what you get. Taking what sounds like the “cheap” option typically ends up being more costly, as companies often have to hire new contractors to properly do the work, not to mention the time spent trying to select the best option.
What differentiates PredictiveTalent from virtual support services like oDesk and Elance is that our contractors are professionals in their fields. We pre-screen and interview each individual and handpick who we think would be the best fit for your job. Additionally, our freelancers have very reasonable fees for outstanding services.
