Ebook Sample Content Preview:
What you’re trying to do here is figure out the best of the best. If 2 or all 3 of them submit great work, maybe you can even hire all 3. Chances are, however, that you’ll only pick one of them in the end.
Make sure the task you ask them to complete is simple but has very clear instnictions. You don’t want them to be confused because they won’t always ask for clarification.
That said- if they do ask for clarification then that is a good sign of a quality outsourcer.
I recommend asking them all to do the exact same thing- same keyword, go to the same sites, everything. You want a level playing field. That way when Outsourcer A delivers high quality stuff after 1 hour and Outsourcer B takes 4 hours to do the same thing- you know who to pick.
I’ve attached a template for this in the Resources folder.
Hire the one that did the best job (or repeat if none of them were great)
Pretty self-explanatory, right?
Now that you have your person picked out, you just have to point them the right direction and get them started.
Again, give them very specific directions including what keyword to research, how to format the book (you should have a sample), how to re-write the content quickly, etc.
Staying on Top of Your Outsourcer
You don’t want to be a pain in the rear, but you’re also paying for quality work-make sure you get it!
The best way to do that is to check the outsourcer’s work every time that it comes in. After asking them to correct it a few times, they’ll understand exactly what you’re looking for and do better in the future.
I admit that upfront this requires a little work, but after just a few days it gets more passive. I can now just hand my outsourcer a few keywords, and a few hours later he comes back to me with near-perfect e-books for me to upload to Amazon! Granted-1 think I’ve got the fastest guy ever on Odesk- but you’ll be able to find someone too.
