    Self and hire a bit sometimes.. If I could find some outsourcers who worked for like $15-20 a day and could build links or write content I would hire.

    I don't have my own sites anymore, but if I did I'd absolutely outsource almost all of it other than research and analytics. If you don't it's like throwing money away.

    If I weren't knowledgeable in all of the aspects of development, I'd hire a project manager domestically and wouldn't go cheap either.

    Sometimes I outsource some issues, but usually I try to do things myself.

    the old saying "if you want something done right, do it yourself" proves to be true most of the time but it really depends of the type of work
