Using Online Talent communities and online freelancers to support your business
Been around the town a couple of times or maybe more – looking for that right person to help your business grow – or maybe it was you on the hunt for new clients? There has been a lot of commentary and discussion around online freelancing and virtual talent communities being used by business over the last 5 years. But do they really work, can you find new clients or new virtual staff for your team and really run a successful business? What will it cost you in time, money and energy? This workshop is designed to help you consider the opportunities and pit falls for using online talent communities such as Freelancer.com, odesk.com and elance.com, debate the options around using suppliers who are interstate, overseas or maybe right here in Canberra and learn from the practical lessons of people that have been there and done that. It is best suited to businesses considering options around online outsourcing or beginners in the space.
Anthony Hatton’s business Kids Football Club will be one of the case studies covered in the session along with other Canberra business owners who have stories from the online talent trenches.
This session will be facilitated by Todd Wright from Threesides marketing.
