    i have been told that i can hire someone from the Philippines to work full time for me writing and uploading articles for me at a very low cost.. i have been paying Philippines cheap prices to write articles but i feel it will be cheaper just to hire one full time.

    what should i charge and do you have any tips?

    I feel you need to lighten up -- being told something does not mean it is true --- anyone in Manila earning 100 USD is dirt poor - Internet access in Manila costs from 15 Pesos - 35 US cents to 25 Pesos - 58 US cents per hour so in a 40 hour week that will cost from 14 to 23 US Dollars per week - So do the math (100 bucks is useless) if you want to hire someone in the Philippines then this is an excellent site

    to source top workers but you will have to pay the going rate

    Hope this helps you find the resource you are seeking!

    By the way I am an English guy living in Asia for the last 15 years

    At $100/month, they don't actually work "full time" just for you. They usually have 4-5 employers during this time period. Expect them to work around 2 hours/day solid on your tasks, 5 days a week. It works out to around $2.50/hour, which is still good.

    I think $300 / month is a fair amount for hiring a full time worker from phillipines.

    The minimum wage for hiring them is about $250 full time. My workers even know how to code and I pay them $400 a month.

    Anything less would be exploiting them actually.

    If you are tight on budget, then you can hire them for half day (4 hours) at $150.

    Before hiring them, be sure to make a list of tasks that you want to be done and explain to them in very basic steps what you expect out of them

    I'd say if you want to keep anyone decent, give them a raise soon and often.

    Search sites like elancer, rent a coder and even the Warriors for hire. Is it a no-no to talk about Warrior Forums here (if so let me know, preferably with yelling! Hehehe).

    I completely agree withe the "You get what you pay for" theory but even if you cannot go $1/hour - you can find HUNDREDS of cheap labor costs (from almost every part of the world, even Detroit from what i hear :).

    Also - check out J Rese's (sp?) OutSourceForce or similar FREE programs like that about outsourcing.
