Most people find hiring freelancers being a long, difficult, and frustrating journey. I'm looking to share and gain some experience with fellow employers. -First, I always ask them to add me on Skype. This serves as a test to see if they can problem solve if they do not have Skype -Make them come to you. Instead of trying to find a time to get together, the good freelancers always find me when I'm online, and I NEVER look for them online -Next, I use their grammar, I adapt to there poor grammar, which they understand better and we can get more done with less questions -Near the start of the Skype conversation, I always ask them if they accept PayPal or whatever payment method I am using. 50% of the time, PayPal will filter them Any tips you would like to share?
