<p>You have to follow these three steps:</p> <ol> <li> <p>Sign up</p> </li> <li> <p>Define your project</p> </li> <li> <p>Post a job</p> </li> </ol> <p>So, first of all, make sure that you sign up as a client. You need to put in your details and the payment method that you prefer.</p> <p>Next, you have to define your project. State your goals for the project, deliverables, skills needed for the job and your preferred deadline. Outlining your requirements will make it easier to write a job post and explain it to freelancers as well as your Business Manager who will help you with hiring the right people as well as ensure that all your goals for your project, are accomplished.</p> <p>Now, you can post a job. As you create your job post, try to include as much detail as you can. If you want to check if applicants are going through the whole job post, ask them to answer a simple question when they apply. Applications without the answer should be discarded. You can also search for freelancers on Jobider and invite qualified people to apply to your job post.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>You can evaluate freelancers properly through their cover letter, skills and feedback of previous clients.</p> <p>An applicant&rsquo;s cover letter will show you instantly whether he or she has the communication abilities that are essential to working online. The applicant&rsquo;s skills should match your project. If you asked them to answer a simple question and they did not, move on to other applicants.</p> <p>Once you&rsquo;ve chosen a number of applicants with good cover letters, refer to their profiles and determine if they possess the skill set and experience you need. Check the following:</p> <p><strong>Client feedback</strong></p> <p>High ratings (4.5 stars and higher) and positive comments are always good signs.</p> <p><strong>Work history and experience</strong></p> <p>Check if the applicants have completed projects similar to yours and determine if their work and rates have progressed.</p> <p><strong>Clues from clients</strong></p> <p>When an applicant is rehired by the same client for several projects, that is a great indication of the freelancer&rsquo;s performance. In other cases, high-performing freelancers are assigned to large, ongoing jobs.</p> <p><strong>Total hours worked on Jobider</strong></p> <p>When a freelancer has worked more hours on Jobider, compared to others, this may be an indication that clients prefer working with that freelancer. However, there may be new freelancers who possess the skill set you need for your project. For these newbies, we recommend a more hands-on style of management as they learn how to work on your project.</p> <p><strong>Portfolio</strong></p> <p>You can check the quality of the applicants&rsquo; work by looking into their portfolio.</p> <p><strong>Test results and certifications</strong></p> <p>Check if the applicants&rsquo; scores are in the top 20% of the skills that you need for your project.</p> <p>Contact all applicants who pass your initial screening, through email. Getting them to answer some project-specific questions is a great way to gauge their experience and written communication skills.</p> <p>The next step is the interview. Email exchange or a quick chat may be enough for smaller jobs. If you are hiring for long term or bigger projects, live chat or a video call may be a better option to help you determine if the freelancer is a good fit. Ask each applicant how they would tackle the project.</p> <p>Finally, hire your top candidates for a short test. Give them a day or a few hours to complete a small part of your job. If the quality, speed of work, and communication of an applicant passes your criteria, hire him/her.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>After posting a good job description, you will be able to narrow down your list to a few exceptional candidates.</p> <p>Now you need to check on the applicants&rsquo; ability for good written communication. If an applicant is able to express himself/herself well through writing, this is usually means he/she has good overall communication and work skills.</p> <p>Then, test each applicant. Hire the top applicants to perform a small task. This will be your chance to gauge their work first-hand and this will be their opportunity to prove that they have what it takes to work on your project.</p> <p>Give them up to a day to deliver. When they do, review their work. Check the quality of their work, how efficiently they worked and their communication skills while doing the small task. These are all essential to help you determine which applicant would be the best hire.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>There is a wide variety of rates based on each freelancer&rsquo;s skills, experience, feedback, and work history on Jobider. Normally, a veteran web developer commands a higher rate than a novice data entry specialist. Before going for the freelancer with the lowest rate however, here are some tips you need to consider when you are negotiating with freelancers and setting your budget:</p> <p><strong>How will you manage your freelancers?</strong></p> <p>Are you a hands-on manager who follows a project closely? Or are you the type of manager who would like to be a little less involved with the details of the project? If you are too busy to spend time tracking the progress of your project, we recommend that you hire a more experienced candidate who will proactively manage their part in the project and send you regular updates about its progress.</p> <p><strong>Are you looking for a specialized skill?</strong></p> <p>Qualified specialists who have a proven track record of success, especially in technical fields, normally command higher rates. Thinks twice before hiring a mobile app development &ldquo;expert&rdquo; who has an hourly rate of $5.</p> <p><strong>Are you familiar with the skill you are hiring for?</strong></p> <p>If your project involves skills that you may not be too familiar with, we suggest that you hire experts with higher rates who typically have proven experience and great feedback from previous clients. You can also hire agencies on Jobider who are able to staff your project with tried and tested freelancers from their talent pool.</p> <p>At Jobider, you can hire freelancers with very affordable rates. However, you also have to remember that there is truth in the adage, &ldquo;You get what you pay for.&rdquo;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>To ensure that things start smoothly, it is always good to have a kick off meeting. This is very important especially if you are working with a freelancer for the first time.</p> <p><strong>Introduce yourself and the rest of your team</strong></p> <p>Have a conversation with your freelancer. Get to know each other. Talk about the job, your business, products and/or services, and your background.</p> <p><strong>State your expectations and ground rules</strong></p> <p>Be straightforward and tell your freelancer what you expect from him/her and what he/she can expect from you. Discuss the timing of the tasks, delivery methods and which tasks need to be prioritized. If you hire a freelancer on hourly rate, clarify if it&rsquo;s okay to add manual time &ndash; if the scope of the task goes beyond the weekly limit that you set. Inform them you often you will check their Work Diary. Talk about anything you feel will help with the success of the project.</p> <p><strong>Agree on how you will communicate with each other</strong></p> <p>Clear and consistent communication plays a big part in the success of a project. You must decide on how you will communicate with your freelancer and how often you should touch base. Set hours where you will both be available to IM, and clarify what you want in terms of a work progress report.</p> <p>Spend time to cover all your bases, specify your project requirements, especially tasks that need to be prioritized. Give your freelancer as much info as you can. This makes it easier for your freelancer to accomplish his/her tasks, which, in turn, can help reduce the time needed to complete the job.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>With today&rsquo;s technology, you have several options when it comes to communicating with your freelancer. Just choose what works best for both of you. We recommend you make use of any of the following:</p> <p><strong>Email</strong></p> <p>Email is best for longer communications. If you need to document and detail your communications and requests, connect through email.</p> <p><strong>Instant Message</strong></p> <p>If you want to touch base quickly or if you want to have a quick question answered, instant messaging is the best way to communicate. However, you need to establish daily times when both you and your freelancer will be online and available. This can be tricky if your freelancer is in a different time zone.</p> <p><strong>Video Chat</strong></p> <p>It&rsquo;s good to connect with your freelancer face-to-face every now and then. Skype and Google Hangout offer great video chat services.</p> <p>Choose which communication tool is best for you. Regardless of how you do it, regular communication will help keep your project on track.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>By using our online tools and regularly communicating, you can monitor your freelancer&rsquo;s progress.</p> <p><strong>Check your freelancer&rsquo;s Work Diary</strong></p> <p>You can check your freelancer&rsquo;s Work Diary every day. You will find work-in-progress screenshots taken every 10 minutes. Activity levels are recorded by monitoring keystrokes and mouse clicks (but not what was written or clicked by your freelancer). A memo is also entered by your freelancer, describing the work he/she is doing.</p> <p><strong>Communicate with your freelancer every day</strong></p> <p>Constant communication is important if you want to establish work progress and quality.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Each project is different but following are basic principles that can help you achieve success:</p> <p><strong>Be specific with your requirements</strong></p> <p>Know what you want. Be clear about where you want to go with your project before you post a job or hire a freelancer. This will make it easier for you to explain the job and find the right freelancer for the task.</p> <p><strong>Hire the right person for the job</strong></p> <p>Hiring the right freelancer is key to the success of any project. This is especially important for larger, ongoing jobs. You need to take your time in screening your candidates well. Go through their cover letter and portfolio. Then conduct a real-time interview. Evaluate each applicant and when you have your top picks, hire them for a short, test-drive job.</p> <p><strong>Communicate regularly</strong></p> <p>We need to emphasize this &ndash; regular and open communication is crucial for the success of any project.</p> <p><strong>Manage your freelancer actively</strong></p> <p>Many clients tend to just tell their freelancers what they want and wait and hope that the job will be accomplished on time and up to par. You need to actively engage your freelancer. Check in, ask to see work in progress, and request for updates.</p> <p><strong>Always provide feedback</strong></p> <p>If work is going well, be sure to tell your freelancer. Positive feedback goes a long way towards establishing long-lasting work relationships. It also encourages your freelancer to surpass what he/she has already accomplished. On the other hand, if you&rsquo;re not satisfied with your freelancer&rsquo;s output, you need tell them. Be respectful but clear about why you are dissatisfied. He/she may not know how you feel and will adjust to meet your expectations.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Here are some things that you can do: &nbsp; Revise your job post Review your original job post. Recheck if you put in enough details and if these were clearly stated. Try to search similar job posts to get insight into what other clients are asking and how they are wording their posts. Increase your compensation If you are requesting freelancers to do a lot of work for minimal pay, you won&rsquo;t attract the best freelancers, especially if you are looking for a specialized skill. Invite freelancers directly Search for freelancers on Jobider. When you find qualified candidates, send them invitations to interview for your job. Add a payment method Add a credit card as your primary payment method. You will only be charged when work begins on your project. When freelancers see that you have a verified payment method, this will prove to them that you are serious about hiring and you have a proven ability to pay.</p>
<p>If your project seems to have gone to a standstill or it&rsquo;s just not working out with your freelancer. Pause and reassess your project.</p> <p><strong>Talk to your freelancer</strong></p> <p>Have a discussion with your freelancer. Be honest and tell him/her why you are not happy and give them clear instructions on how they can remedy the situation. Your freelancer may not have known that you were unhappy and may be able to correct circumstances easily.</p> <p><strong>Be an active manager</strong></p> <p>When one or more parties do not communicate effectively, misunderstandings often take place. If this happens to you a number of times, it&rsquo;s time to be more proactive in your management of freelancers. Check in often and ask to see work in progress.</p> <p><strong>Trust your instincts</strong></p> <p>If you feel that a freelancer is dishonest or if he/she is giving you the runaround, trust your instincts and end the relationship.
