I really want to get a lot of work done with my websites but I just don't have the time... so I've been looking at oDesk to hire a couple VA's. One for link-building and SEO, and another for writing & spinning content. I have a budget of about $150 per week (max) to spend. I don't mind paying a bit more for the content ($5/hr, in that range) but I'm thinking about going ultra cheap for the SEO, $1-$2. My ideal plan is to hire a couple excellent, cheap workers who can do 75% of the work of running my online businesses without me having to do much at all except for managing them and keeping an eye on how my sites are doing. Has anyone taken this route, building an online empire from scratch by outsourcing nearly every task? Have you been successful? Can I really expect to get good results by paying a foreigner $1/hour to do my SEO or it generally accepted that you need to shell out more money for quality SEO work...? Thanks for reading & I look forward to the responses.
