Upwork (formerly oDesk) is one of the best known outsourcing platforms on the web. Find the best translator, copywriter, web developer, designer, video producer … you name it, Upwork knows someone who can do it. Post your job or invite specific freelancers and carry out online interviews via video chat or messaging services, or use the mobile app for out-of-office communication. You decide how much you want to pay for the work and Upwork takes a (relatively hefty) cut. In spite of these fees, there are still plenty of professionals out there ready to compete for your posted task.
