    • IntroductionGiven the latest online trends, more and more businesses are utilizing andbenefitting from the significant advantages of freelance outsourcing – especiallyto the Philippines.Employees, teams or even a whole company no longer have to physically worktogether as one unit. It’s the era of freelancers, virtual assistants, work-from-home, and Skype conference calls. Telecommuting has become an efficientalternative in today’s highly technological world, allowing varied individualsacross the globe to do business each day.Why limit yourself to applicants in your area, when there could be a greater poolof talent elsewhere? The Philippines, for example, offers an abundant source ofworld class professionals capable of any administrative work; as well asintelligent, creative and passionate writers, designers, online marketers and webdevelopers with college degrees from outstanding universities, and exemplarywork experience in their chosen fields.Explore the other side of the world and discover better ways of managing yourbusiness.Gather a stronger workforce. Outsource.What is Freelancing?Freelancing pertains to the business relationship between a self-employedprofessional (the freelancer) and a client. Freelancers are individuals with aparticular skill set and expertise, but have no long term commitment to aparticular employer, and can therefore service different clients and work onvaried projects at a time. The main benefit for both parties involved is flexibility –in terms of time and rates.As freelancers have the freedom to create and adjust their own schedules, clientsor employers have the added benefit of agreeing on a deadline that can even bebefore or beyond regular office hours. Rates are also cheaper, as opposed to
    • rendering the service of someone from an agency. Each freelancer has his or herown pricing standard and may choose to charge per word count, piece, project,hour, day or month; or according to the value he perceives the project to be tothe client’s customers. Either way, such rates are often negotiable.Freelancers either thrive on referrals or by registering to so-called freelancemarketplaces such as Freelancer.com, ODesk, Elance, Guru and so on. These sitesserve as a venue for clients for outsourcing projects and scouting for the mostqualified freelancers to work on them. Clients like yourself can view resumes andsample works of individuals with your desired skills. You may also choose to bidout your project requirement and choose the freelancer that offers you the bestprice and turnaround time.These days, freelancing is common in varied types of work such as writing andcontent management services, virtual assistance services, online marketingservices, social media development and web design and development services.What is Outsourcing?Outsourcing is the process of hiring a third party provider to work on certain tasksor projects that are usually performed within your company. This often involvesrendering the services of a firm overseas, such as in the Philippines, where peopleare regarded for their high competence and professionalism, on top of lowproduction costs.Where outsourcing excels is in the time and resources saved for your company tofocus on the most crucial aspects of your business. Some projects, if attempted tobe performed in-house, may take weeks or even months just to hire and train thenecessary people; whereas an outsourcing firm already has an available andcapable pool of professionals ready to get the job done.From mundane clerical work, to tedious administrative tasks and specializedcreative services, outsourcing helps you streamline your business structure andmaximize the time and talents of your current workforce. Overheads aresignificantly reduced – Get the additional help that you need, only when you needthem, from experienced professionals specializing in the specific task at hand.
    • Although outsourcing projects became a widespread trend in recent years, mostespecially in the BPO industry, it has eventually grown to affect various fields ofwork from engineering and accounting to photography and internet marketing. Aglobal and even virtual taskforce has become a convenient business set-up formany companies and continues to prevail for a reason: It works.Freelance OutsourcingSimply put, freelance outsourcing means outsourcing a certain part of yourbusiness to freelancers. A freelance website or outsourcing agency can help youfind the most qualified individuals to meet your specific requirements.The next important thing to consider is whether to outsource it to an individual ora team.Individual OutsourcingOutsourcing to just one freelancer is ideal for simple and specific piecemealprojects. Opting for this gives you more freedom to compare rates, skills andsample works between different applicants. Individual outsourcing also involvesproject-based deadlines and results, making it easier for you to supervise andmonitor the freelancer’s performance.However, entrusting a whole project to just one person has its risks. Someemployers have bad experiences where certain freelancers suddenly just go MIA,or worse, stop communication after receiving the initial payment and leave theproject hanging. Also, freelancers are usually limited to only a particular skill set.So if your project requires a combination of expertise, you may end up with anumber of individual freelancers and have a difficult time managing andcoordinating with all of them. This may ultimately cause delay in the delivery andquality of their work.So when choosing an individual freelancer, screen your applicants well, ask forreferrals and read testimonials available on their freelancer website account, ifany. Better yet, simply go straight to an outsourcing agency and let them find thebest fit for you – someone they’ve already screened and can vouch for.
    • Team OutsourcingFor more complex or long-term projects, team outsourcing is recommended.Hiring a small group offers you a pool of multiple skill sets, forming acomprehensive unit to complete every aspect of your project. Research has alsoshown that small groups are more productive than individuals – possibly sincethey can bounce ideas off each other, creating richer concepts and more diversestrategies. Camaraderie and teamwork also make work more fun, engaging andmotivating, leading to more inspired results. Such an arrangement also oftenentails a team leader to supervise the team on your behalf, freeing you of moremanagerial work.On the other hand, working with a team, even just on small, short-term projectswould definitely prove to be a disadvantage; increasing overhead, staffing issuesand unnecessary costs. This is why it would still be best to employ the services ofan outsourcing firm to determine exactly how many and who are the keyindividuals necessary to carry on a project. This way, all recruits are alsoguaranteed to be well screened, tested and handpicked by the experts just foryou.May you be in need of individuals or a team of freelancers to outsource yourprojects to, outsourcing firms in the Philippines have got you covered.Freelance Outsourcing in the PhilippinesWhen it comes to online outsourcing, communication is key. Given the absenceof a physical working environment that allows for clearer discussions, it is crucialfor you to find freelancers who can easily understand your instructions andrequests, and can deliver a high quality output that’s professionally crafted andeasy for you to understand as well.According to the recent study by the GlobalEnglish Corporation, the Philippines isthe best country in business English proficiency, as published in the prestigious2012 Business English Index (BEI).
