    I'm currently living in a 3rd world country where there are many good English speaking people who can type and have access to computers.

    For 8 hours of work, I can have one person for about $6/day, which includes the computer and internet.

    I'm looking for ideas on how to best utilize this large inexpensive labor pool of hungry people. I'm looking for something that has some scale.

    Anybody have any good ideas?

    Here's a few I came up with:

    1) outsource them to others (like BHW folks)
    2) have them write articles for content
    3) build profiles on social networks, collect friends and recommend things (ie: zango?)

    Thanks

    these are all good ideas. If they have no Indian or Pakistani accent you can also have them do telemarketing for you or offer TM services.

    btw, what country r u in?

    @roychuk ----> it says Nepal....

    @havana-----> I would be interested in hiring 5-10 people daily...For writing articles & spamming different websites to drive traffic...PM me, however I think you need to have a moderator review your services before you start offering to help with only 1 post...

    I guess here OP is not offering any services. He is just asking how he can utilise the cheap labor he is having.

    I wasn't really looking to provide any outsourcing services - i make plenty of money with my own ppc projects.

    having said that - i would be happy to look at any opportunities. i have expert PPC people on staff, programmers (asp/php), graphics, and a large call center... but you won't be getting any of those for $6/day. :)
