Are Freelancers Really a Cost-Effective Solution?

Thinking of hiring professional freelancers from India? While, on the surface, this may seem like a cost-effective proposition, in reality, things can be quite different if you choose the wrong partner.

For instance, if you are a start-up, you’d likely need to hire at least 2-3 freelancers in different domains. A freelancer for writing your web content, a second one for digital marketing, and a third for web development. Three freelancers, three invoices and all in three different locations.

But, VirtualEmployee.com is your one-stop destination for freelance professional services. We make remote working very easy and efficient. Hire a single resource or an entire offshore team of multiple resources and multiple skills. Your entire team sits in one office, under one roof and you have to deal with just one single invoice.

If you want to hire freelancers online in any domain, then hiring virtual employees from us is your best bet. We cater to 150+ domains and you can handpick the resource you want in your domain. Our clients have come with very niche requirements as well, and we have been able to match the right resource with their specific requirements.

Before you hire a ‘cheap’ remote freelancer online, ask yourself this:

  • Do they work from a professional office environment?

  • Are they supervised at all times?

  • Does your freelance service provider give you HR, floor managers?

  • Do you get real-time client support, 24×7?

  • Does the skilled freelancer that you hired have any IT support?

If the freelancing model is anything to go by, then the chances are you have answered No.

Infact, a Virtual Employee is the best – and the only – alternative to local hiring or outsourcing.

You work with your remote resource exactly as you would with your local in-house employee.

But a freelancer is an external resource and always will be. Does it make business logic to give high-value in-house work to an external resource over whom you have no control?
