Coffee Talk with Jonathan Diller VP Of Provider Network for Elance.com

James Martell, president of Net Guides Publishing Inc., knows that outsourcing can literally propel your business (whether brick and mortar or online) to new heights because he’s done just that. Since using Elance for outsourcing his content creation, website building, and coding projects he’s been able to save himself 50-75% over hiring local providers to do the work and cut deadlines down to days instead of weeks.

In this edition of Coffee Talk, James sits down with the VP of Elance’s provider network, Jonathan Diller. Jonathan is the man responsible for recruitment and training of new Elance providers and he’s also the manager of customer service for the entire site!

Jonathan has been with the company for over three years and understands just how revolutionary outsourcing through Elance can be for small, sole proprietorships and large companies alike. (He tells the story of companies who’ve used Elance for lead generation and grown from a couple people to 200 employees!)

So listen in and learn how posting a project on Elance works and how it will:

  • Save you tons of money
  • Help you find the right provider to fit your position or project
  • Help you maintain total control over your working relationship

  • And get ahead of your competition by being more responsive to business trends

This interview is an extremely valuable tool for anyone thinking about using outsourced labor to cut their overhead, expand their operation, or just carve out some free time for themselves. True, you must first list a project and then evaluate potential service providers, but Elance offers so much more than a virtual yellow page listing!
