Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on November 15, 2009

As a follow up to my last post on The White Collar Reality here is a simple Slide Share presentation as a thought starter of why it matters, and what is happening. This is a snippet from the syllabus at Startup School.

    Great points Steve.

    The next question then is “with thousands of companies that I can outsource too, how do I find the one that is right for my companies needs?”

    Which is where buyer centric sites like come in.

    These sites allow you to post a detailed request, and have businesses come back to them with tailored responses.

    Saves time, effort, and gets a better result. and it’s FREE.

    The market has always been open for outsourcing/ tender and has been around since dick-dock – authority, trust and efficiency are this the name of the game, choosing the right people at the right price. The link that Mark gave is one option, the right option is to see which firm is ranking top in the game, use google or other search engines is a good starting point.

      I’d have to disagree with you in terms of ‘outsourcing to low cost labour markets. It’s only very recently that the ability to outsource work was available for anyone with a $500 laptop.

    Outsourcing high-level marketing and technical writing for “half the price” is becoming very popular in countries like Israel with loads of native-English speakers from the US and UK (South Africa and Australia too).
    Check out this blog on social media and start-ups and how they can be serviced by out-sourcing marketing companies..
