    Hi again BHW,

    I have some really really simple and dumb tasks that I absolutely hate doing. Partly to get rid of doing this myself and partly to scale up with other niches, I'd like to outsource these simple tasks.

    What's the best place to do this? All I'm looking for is a guy with 1 - 2 hours /d of extra time and a computer with internet. Odesk or Microworker is not really what I'm looking for. Also: as cheap as possible, so Thailand or India or something.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can find them on DP, there will always be people there fighting for cents.

    What kind of tasks are they - are they exactly the same tasks that you do every day?
    May be worth getting them automated - saves paying out for people you have to chase every day to make sure they do it :)

    There are plenty of automation tools out there, from desktop automation to web stuff.

    Not sure where you are located but you can find college students looking for some bar money. Search on craigslist or if you're close to a campus post a flyer on a job board.

    If you are looking for real cheap, I will advise you to look for a Philippines job website. You can even look over CL for that country and you will definitely get the best in pricing

    Yeah, I would go for Craigslist....should be able to find many people interested in simple jobs, and it wouldn't cost you much either!

    Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but check out GetFriday. I didn't use their service for myself yet but from what I've heard they are very reliable and professional, but still quite inexpensive (they're based in India).

    You didn't say what kind of work you need done. Not sure why you don't use Odesk I've gotten workers there for as cheap as $1/hr for stupid easy tasks.

    There's all kinds of freelance sites or sites like http://www.bestjobsph.com/ for Filipino workers.
