    As the thread title says, I have access to a practically unlimited amount of local guys/gals that can work in online tasks for 3 USD per hour rates. I would like some brainstorm help here to think of ways/methods/specific online work I could give these people to make further profit.

    These workers have their pros and cons in terms of skills:

    Pros: they are fast learners and can follow instructions with precision, they are very reliable, once a skill is acquired they can perform the job fast.

    Cons: Their tech skills are pretty limited (just at the level of an average frequent PC user), most of them only have a basic English level (so English art writing is out of the question).

    At the moment, I only have them writing articles in their native language. What else could I use them for? I was thinking that maybe I could teach them to use tools like Scrapebox, GSA or some other easy to understand IM tools and go from there, or maybe teach them how to build manual backlinks.

    I also have access to good-looking girls and could have them do testimonials or something similar, but this could only be done in their native language, and not in English. And no, can't have these girls do anything adult related.

    Anyway, hope some of you guys can help me and come up with more ideas.

    Thanks.

    Teach them to use scrapebox or other similar software and create a service? Or just put me in contact with them so I can hire them XD

    That's and idea I had too, training a few of them in something specific and starting a service.

    Something that occurred to me too today is using meathead's method and have them work on Google alerts for different affiliate products with pre-made templates. Just one of them could work on about 40-50 alerts per hour.

    Even i am brainstorming with my buddies about monetizing cheap manual labor...
    my plan is to upload " product name review" videos to google .... google alerts is a good idea too....
    even twitter @username comments can be a good option...
    posting ads , your own white hat SEO service... Tons of MNS ... etc!

    Whatever you decide to do with them, make sure you create training videos or/and have them create some in their native language. Yes It'll take a little time to make them, but it will save you countless hours of training and retraining.

    That way when you get new hires you show them the video and done, if they have questions they can always rewatch the videos and save you both time.

    You can train just one of them and have him train the others.

    True but that's why I highlighted RELIABLE in the title. I can't tell you how many times I've been let down by cheap freelance sites workers. I can get high quality outsourcers for the mentioned price.

    Filling out zip & email submits would keep them busy for a bit :)

    That's actually not a bad idea. If you can figure out some sort of service that you can offer via Fiverr, then just outsource it.
    When you say basic English level, how bad is it?

    Good enough to understand it but not good enough to produce any kind of quality content.

    3$ hour is nothing special. For such price in my country i can get someone with great english or for 1.5-2$ per hour someone who will be able to do very simpe tasks like manual acc creation etc. And its not very cheap. In other countries it would be possible to get such workers cheaper. 1.5-2$ per hour for english content writer could be possible. Scrapebox and gsa are already very automated tools. With scrapebox automator you can set taskt and leave it for 24 hours or more so i dont see need of teaching worker how to use so simple tool. Your workers are not damn cheap so its not goldmine. Manual backlinks creation without good english - i dont think its worth time + manual backlinks dont mean better than backlinks created with automation tools. Custom tools and your backlinks can look 100% manual and custom tools can replace 50 workers for 0$.

    As I said above, I was never able to find long-term reliable workers for any less than $5 per hour, let alone English quality content writers. What I have at hand is high quality hand labor that I even get to pay AFTER the job has been properly done, so there is no risk of getting scammed. These people are reliable, fast learners, and very motivated to work for that kind of money.

    If you are lucky enough to have access to these kind of workers for even less than $3/hour and can avoid all the usual headaches your typical 2-3 USD/hour odesk or freelancer.com workers brings in the majority of the cases, which ends up inflating the cost quite a lot, then you my friend are in a privileged position.

    To those that have been PM'ing me about this thread:

    I think you guys misinterpreted the meaning of my thread. I am NOT hiring workers over the internet at the moment. I thought the point was clear: I'm using local people that I already know or can obtain a fast reference about so I can be sure I'll be getting the work I need.

    To sum up: please don't PM looking for work. Not interested at the moment. Thanks.

    What you should really do, from a serious business point of view is hire 30.000 of them for 1 minute and make them do a harlem shake.

    Alliteratively, you could teach them the googla dance, watch the video to gain a deeper knowledge into the subject.



    Now, on a serious note. Tame them and hire them for $5.

    Im taliking about quality workers ofc, not from odesk etc. Im from one of countries in middle europe so here people work for small money. Think out of the box bro :) Look for portals like craigslist in offshore countries, try to post in job section and im sure you will get answers. How many people with great english is looking for job but dont know anything about odesk, im etc and use internet mainly for facebook? Tons. You just have to find them. Btw i was starting my im story from contentwriting in my native language... 1$ per 500 words quality content lol :D
