When growing your business, it’s important to have the right people on your projects. This is why many people turn to sites like Elance to find freelancers, but if you’ve never used the site before, it may be a little tricky to learn how to use Elance to hire for your next project.
Public vs. Private post
When you first start out hiring on Elance, you won’t have a good feel for the freelancers that you want to work with, so you’ll most likely be making all of your job postings public. However, once you start to have experience working with several freelancers, Elance gives you the opportunity to make your job postings ‘private’, meaning they’ll only be visible to the freelancers that you invite to see the listing. This can help cut down applicants for your position that aren’t serious or qualified for it.
