    If you had to outsource 1 (or a few) task for Internet Marketing to an outsourcing company, what would it be (besides article writing). I don't mean programming, but stuff like creating blogs and all that. Also - can anyone recommend a really good overseas outsourcing company/individual that they have used (someone fast, affordable and trustworthy).

    I usually use them for everything from ad design, finding keywords, reviewing email(filtering out the crap from the good leads), to managing my website. I would recommend that you have a look at elance, it is a really good place to find people locally and abroad.

    I think i want to outsource something that could eat up most of my time such as finding hot niche, social bookmarking, forum marketing, viral marketing, etc. For outsourcing company, i never used one so I can't give any suggestions :)

    I outsource everything that is time consuming for me or stuff that I cannot do well. Time is money and outsourcing will can save you a lot of time. Common things I do is articles of course, link building, bookmarking, mass video creation etc...

    Even for simple copy and paste jobs I'd rather pay someone $10 for something that would take me hours to do and profit $20 instead of spending hours doing it myself for the whole $30.

    It all boils down to time and ROI. For quality outsourcing I use elance. For mass simple stuff I use GAF as they offer the lowest prices.

    I outsource some article writing on GAF. I pay about $6 for 500 word articles. But they aren't perfect, so then I have somebody to edit those and we pay her $11/hr but she got an English degree from UCLA...takes her about 15 min per article. And we do about 25 500 word articles a week.

    I will outsource my designing work because I am not good at it.
    The second one would be articles.
