    Hello,

    im getting crazy with the workers on odesk. I just want them to post ads for me.
    Most of these "experts" seem not to have any experience.

    Where do you outsource your work?

    Thanks

    I'd go with Romania there. Slightly more expensive than India, but they actually get shit done. India, well... You usually get stuck redoing all your shit, after they create a fucking mess. Not worth the hassle.

    Philippines. You have to train most of them but they are very trustworthy.

    I've actually never considered Romania... the countries I've used are India and the Philippines, and all my workers are in the Philippines now.
    It makes sense that Romanians would be great workers, because Europeans in general seem to be quite focused on logic and facts, which is exactly what you need in a VA!

    Is there a Romanian equivalent of onlinejobs.ph?

    Romanians are sharp. They're the guys behind Ahrefs and Cognitive SEO. I would rank them at the top of the list and Indians at the bottom and Philippines in the middle. Guys from the Philippines are great since you can trust them at the least.

    Not that I know of, but you can find Romanians on most outsourcing sites like odesk, elance, scriptlance etc. I once hired a coder off scriptlance, got in touch with him off the site and kept throwing projects his way. Was just as cheap as Indians/Filipinos, but unlike those he was VERY reliable and fast. Never missed a deadline.

    That's what I do.

    Post a job on a freelancer site, and if they do good, private agreements off site via email.

    Normally easy enough, and some tend to have friends to scale it with ;)

    As others pointed out Philipionos rock for mundane jobs. For coding south Asians are fine.

    Just stay away from anyone who is not good in English irrespective of country.

    if you want coding, yes, Romanians are good... I wouldn't talk about deadlines tho:)... I don't work with my ppl

    if you want more quality go on Elance, in the recent years Freelance (old GAF) became a nightmare...

    @zee007
    I don't know who told you about Romanians behind Ahrefs, I think they are Ukrainians

    @tony_d
    there are 2 big websites bestjobs.ro and ejobs.ro , both only in Romanian

    I Use my Fillo's for mundane stuff like copying content from one site to another, monitoring social media for my legit sites, etc, etc.

    I agree with the others that the romanians are perfect for coding and they generally understand what you want with very few questions.

    indian freelancers annoy me. they bid for every job and most of the time they don't have the skill I'm asking for. every time I've hired them i end up re-doing all the mess they create.
