Anyone ever use these sites for hiring web technical people or for content creation?
Yes. There are certain services like content creation and such which are good for Fiverr. If you're looking for something a bit more involved I would go with oDesk. Either way I've had success with both of them.Anyone ever use these sites for hiring web technical people or for content creation?
Same thing with Odesk for me. Hired someone to work on our website and it was a disaster. Hired someone else for about the same price and it was a great experience.Yes, I've used Fiverr for content and Odesk for some specific online marketing tasks. Fiverr is short and sweet, always have had good results. Odesk, just list a small job to test the person or multiple people. Then if you find one that does a good job, give them more work. I've been about 50-50 with Odesk. Not too sure I'm a big fan of tromping thru the mud to find some one who really wants to work on there.
Yeah, when you're trying to go cheap you can't leave anything to chance, otherwise they'll just do whatever they want. And good luck trying to get them to change it.We have used oDesk quite a few times with mixed results. If you are trying to get the cheapest website built you need to make sure to have everything ready for whomever you hire or they will just make something you probably don't want.
