When:  Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Where:  
4747 Troost Ave., Kansas City MO map...

Description:

There are people all over the world that are willing to work for you or your organization. Do you need a marketing expert? Someone to create logos or design your website or create a mobile phone app? How about a virtual administrative assistance to handle some mundane (or not so mundane) activities so that you have a little more free time. Did you realize that you can pay someone on the Internet $5 to write a song for you?

Internet outsourcing allows you to select, interview and hire workers on the Internet in much the same way you purchase products on Amazon. Potential new hires have detailed descriptions of their previous work, comments and star-rankings from previous “employers” and you can refuse to pay if you don’t like the work they’ve done. You can also offer a bonus if they do a great job. Hire workers from Indonesia, India or Indiana – people in every corner the planet are available in these emerging Internet worker markets.

So whether you could use a ghostwriter, an electrical engineer or an administrative assistant, come to this workshop and learn the pros and cons of hiring people from the Internet.

This workshop will be taught by Doug Allen, President of Allen’s Consulting. Lunch will be provided.
