When someone joins our SEO services team and becomes one of our outsourcers, I get them to fill in a Contact Details sheet. I ask for their PayPal address, how they want to be paid for their outsourcing work. When I work with a particular outsourcer, I’ll typically speaking, use PayPal and then, we’ll use it in USD, maybe we’ll have a look at using AUD as well.
I do my payment transactions for full time workers through PayPal. But I also use Rent A Coder or vWorker bonus for those who are out taskers. I typically use these two for my payment schemes. It is okay with me if I have to do direct deposits into their personal bank accounts. Then, I let them know I give labor pays fortnightly.
The job description, you insert their name, their title, let them know their job status. It’s full timer, when they’re going to start their outsourcing work or SEO training and then we let them know it’s a $4 an hour job for the first three months and then, should they be successful and offered a full time position, then it will go up to $5. We also let them know that they’re coming on board as a contractor. So they get no holiday pay and no sick pay. At lunch time they need to log off for lunch but they get the two ten minute breaks as well.
Going from $4 to $5 an hour is a twenty-five percent pay increase, so that’s a big jump for some of these people, twenty-five percent. This is a fair practice whether you will include it in your outsourcing pros and cons list. It’s $1 to us, but it’s twenty-five percent to these people in some of these countries. It makes a big difference to up it by a dollar, we think $1 an hour is nothing, but 25% to these people is a big motivator, a carrot for them to work hard.
We pay them on a fortnightly basis and then there is the job description.
For discussions on job description, I make it a point that I give an example or pattern of how one whole week would look like. Besides the overview of the task, I show them how the week breaks down into daily work schedule. This clarifies your expectations and their expectations as well.
If you have laid out the outsourcing work in a weekly basis, you are simply drawing what you want your staff to be doing exactly. Plus, you are making sure that every staff becomes valuable to your SEO company. Everybody gets to work on a specific task. On the end of your workers, they get to see objectives they need to focus on each day as they carry out their individual tasks for the whole week. You can include in it clauses like whatever was stated can still be subject to change.
This day in history...
