Brian Clark and Jon Morrow over at Copyblogger just released an interesting free 31 page report about outsourcing for web entrepreneurs. I think there has definitely been a growth in the perception that outsourcing is the secret to being successful these days:
- All the "get rich quick" gurus seem to have outsourcing as a key part of their business model
- Overseas "rent-a-coder" type sites that offer cheap labor are becoming more and more prevalent
- Quite a few Joomla-based shops even have outsourcing as a key aspect of running their company business
- Even design is getting outsourced, as evident by all the PSD to HTML sites that have sprung up
Brian and Jon make the argument that outsourcing is not all that its cracked up to be, especially for those who 'they" say its best for... new people with a new idea they are trying to launch.
