Can anyone give me some good info about drop shipping? More specifically how they have found it?

 Who you use? Any pros/cons and perhaps any bad experiences! Please and thank you! read more

Steven FreemanOwner at Evolved Sound
It can work and it can fail like anything. You lose a lot of control compared to stocking and shipping goods directly yourself. Drop shipping adds another layer between you and your customer and the drop shipper is never going to care about your customer to the same level you will within your own business. It's all third party arrangements with mixed results. Depends on what you're selling and who you're partnered with to drop ship which will determine the viability and potential succeess.

How do you stay connected with your network when everyone is busy?

Melanie GrayOwner at MyCL (My Computer Lab)
I send an email or message through social media. I usually know what sort of commuication an individual prefers. Sometimes an SMS works best. Catching up online may not be as beneficial as catching up in person, but it sure is powerful, quick and easy.
Jef LippiattOwner at Startup Chucktown
I personally do my best to make it to several meetups or networking events each month. I also send out emails or direct messages (DMs) on Twitter to specific individuals. I also set up a bit of time each week to reach back out to reconnect with those I haven't heard from lately.

Steve OsborneOwner at Smarthinking
Like Jef, I too have used UpWork/Elance for some time. Much less so these days, not because of any bad experiences, simply because I find it too hard to distinguish between a huge number of competing freelancers.The platform I'm currently using for outsourced dev work is PeoplePerHour. I like the recommendations they provide and find their system much easier to work with. Another I also recommend is Envato Studio. A lot of good WP designers and developers are available, each of whom is vetted before registering.And it's this lack of third party quality control that's at the heart of the UpWork problem.
Jef LippiattOwner at Startup Chucktown
I've used the platform on and off for a while. I've tried to land some side gigs on there with no avail, but I do know that there are some developers and other professionals making decent money on that platform.I've had good results using Fiverr, but you really have to complete a lot of due diligence so you aren't disappointed with the results.Look for people with high ratings and positive reviews. From there connect with them in a conversation (direct message, email) to ensure they understand what you are looking for and are comfortable with your expectations and timeline.

How do you know what you should outsource?

and how do you manage that risk when you first start outsourcing things or using contractors? read more

Hitesh MohanlalDirector at WOW! Advisors & Business Accountants
Excellent question Nancy. I have been outsourcing since 2004 so if there is a mistake that can be made in outsourcing I have probably done it. I currently have three full time staff outsourced. One in Phillipines and 2 in Fiji. The first thing to note is that whatever issues you have with Australian staff you will have with outsourced staff. Now add in culture differences and the issue is a lot bigger. With contractors control is much harder and making them accountable to you is very hard. I have learnt for example that with contractors you take them on full time. If you have them part time they work for others and your work gets done last.Also the work you give out has to be controlled, systemised and procedurised. If this is not done your contractor will get lost no matter how good they are. If you can break the task down in little parts with full instructions you will do well. My admin team does a massive amount of work off shore but this is only possible because every task is either in a video or is a document. You need to talk to them regularly. Not only on email. Physically on the phone. We do it daily and they join in our Australian weekly meetings. You need to make them feel part of a team.We give access to our team to our server, they have passwords to websites and my administration person has a dedicated credit card as well. I have never had an issue with security. If you use an agent then you are quite safe. If a contractor you need to be careful at first but generally you should be OK. Trust your gut but yes be carefulWhen it comes to choosing someone do your research, try to get reviews or testimonials. Give a trial job, interview them. If using Upwork etc then make sure they have experience.
