Interviewed By Elance.com

I found out yesterday that the interview I did with Elance.com had been published on Wednesday 5-28. I assumed it would be published on June 2nd, but I guess it came out early. The interview was conducted back on 5-5-08 and had to get approval, be revised, releases signed and a couple other minor details. (I never knew these things were so involved.)

In the interview I discussed the criteria I use when hiring writers and how to communicate what you want from them so as to avoid any misunderstanding. Elance included 3 tips in the blog post based on what I told them during the interview and what was in a previous post on getting the most from Elance.

The interview probably came about because I sent a general email to someone at Elance letting them know about the previously mentioned post on April 16. It wasn’t anything to strongly self promotional, I just mentioned that the post might be of a benefit for people using their services and looking to hire writers. They must have liked what they read, because I got an email a couple of weeks later asking if I would agree to an interview. I wasn’t seeking an interview, I was just hoping they would link to the post, but you never know what will happen when you touch base with others around the web.

If you have more than you can handle on your own or are wanting to expand your online business and need content, web design help, coding or just about anything you can think of, Elance.com is definitely the place to outsource your work.

  1. Congrats! I had a similar situation with a radio station recently.

    I really like the original Elance piece too, I was just looking into this issue of PRL and didn’t even know about Elance. Now I know why JT is over here all the time.

  2. Hi Alan,

    I bookmarked the site and was just wondering the other day about what I am going to do when I get to
    “bogged” down with Blogging and where I am building more. Thanks, might go job hunting as well.

    Hey Dave, I’m still coming over to read your blog!

  3. This is great information for niche marketers, but not to be overlooked is the big link love you should get from eLance’s blog post…
