Maximizing Efficiency: Combining In-house and Offshore Freelance Staff

Unleash the deepest talent pool on the planet to deliver perfect drawings at a fraction of the cost of a local team member, (and a fraction of the hassle).

Combining in-house and offshore freelance staff can be an effective way to maximize efficiency in certain situations. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when attempting to do so:

1.   Determine the tasks that can be outsourced: 

Start by identifying the tasks that can be easily outsourced to offshore freelance staff, such as data entry, customer support, or simple coding tasks. It's important to remember that not all tasks are suitable for outsourcing, and some may require a higher level of expertise or face-to-face communication.

2.   Select the right offshore freelancers: 

You'll need to find the right offshore freelancers to work with. Start by evaluating the freelancer's expertise, experience, and portfolio. It's important to ensure that they are reliable and trustworthy and that their communication skills are good enough to minimize language barriers and timezone differences.

3.  Establish a clear communication plan: 

Communication is key when working with offshore freelance staff. Establish a clear communication plan that outlines how you'll communicate with them, what tools you'll use, and how often you'll check in with them. It's important to ensure that everyone is on the same page and that you are providing regular feedback to help them improve their work.

4.  Consider cultural differences: 

When working with offshore freelancers, it's important to keep in mind that cultural differences may impact communication and work styles. Be patient and flexible, and take the time to learn about your freelancer's culture and working habits. This can help you build better relationships and maximize efficiency.

5.   Use project management tools: 

To ensure that everyone is on the same page, use project management tools that allow you to track progress, deadlines, and feedback. Tools like Trello, Asana, or Basecamp can be useful for keeping everyone organized and accountable.

6.   Monitor and evaluate performance: 

Regularly monitor and evaluate the performance of your offshore freelance staff. This will help you identify areas where they excel and areas where they may need additional support or training. It can also help you identify if the outsourcing strategy is working or if changes need to be made.

Overall, combining in-house and offshore freelance staff can be an effective way to maximize efficiency in certain situations. However, it's important to carefully evaluate tasks, select the right freelancers, establish clear communication plans, consider cultural differences, use project management tools, and monitor and evaluate performance to ensure success.
