I had an idea for a business where I could just sit at home, but I'm having trouble at a part.
>post on craigslist looking for workers and say apply via email
>get a small pool of workers that way
>advertise handyman jobs basically
>send worker(s) there to do the jobs
>get money from clients that wanted the jobs done
I'm at a loss on how to pay the workers though. The entire point of this was for me to sit at home, so I don't want to go anywhere and meet them. I just want to give them the money. Most likely will not have paypal, so what do I do?
Why? Just pay 4-5 guys minimum wage to go do landscaping to start.
I would also oversee the job they're doing at first to make sure they're doing it correctly. If it is successful you could hire a supervisor for them, and eventually more workers.
Just open a web dev firm and hire Indians for 3.50 an hour on odesk.
Charge 35 an hour to clients.
If client denies the work then just deny the clients pay on odesk.
You need to learn to jew properly.
Easier and less work.
op you need to be present and supervise those mexicans or they are going to do a shit job and you will never get work again since this will work based on referalls
literally the best fucking idea on biz , jesus h crist
how would one start this with no clue about computers? i guess it would be needed to have a website , maybe hire those indians to build ur website as a test to see if they are capable, then negotiate price per hour, advertise craigs, facebook , where else? payment by paypal and bitcoin then what?
Not feasible. Good luck trying to coordinate an outsourced dev team whilst having no project management experience or any knowledge of any part of the SDLC, or how to outsource IT work. Your post gave me cancer.
Labour (I mean working) is basically fucked right now. There are 3 billion Asians willing to work for pennies on the dollar compared to what you need to even pay rent.
The only things making returns right now are intellectual property, capital, and leaching from the government purse.
jokes on you then start your chemo. all companies outsource,i did the research and its doable on a small scale . and i already started it . got my first client already got the dev whos going to do the work going to make $500 this week doing literally nothing
>doing literally nothing
You're full of shit.
How did you explained to the developer what to do, what is his task is going to be, if you know nothing about IT in the first place?
>all companies outsource
They usually know what they are doing. In case of IT, they play a role of a client/project manager, who has to transform client's wishes into tasks for developers. "Doing nothing" doesn't apply here. It's usually a job for guys, who are too old / lazy to write code and too stupid/unambitious to become managers.
If it was "literally nothing" the developers would do all that themselves, instead of giving lion's share of money to some fucking parasite.
