So recently I decided to get a company in india, brickwork, to do some of the boring bits of a project for me. It mostly consisted of doing research into affiliate programmes. There has been some confusion but I think that we are getting there. Considering I paid for 5 hours labour I think that they have ended up doing about twenty for me. Still waiting on the final results so we shall see.
The key to it all; say exactly what you need them to do. If there is a process go through it literally click by click. Do not assume anything, if you are coder then imagine writing a script to do the job with decision points clearly highlighted along the way.
I'll update when I've got the final results back, hopefully they will make more sense this time.
