My name is Nathan Hirsch and I am the Co -Founder of FreeeUp, a marketplace connecting business owners with the top 1% of virtual assistants, freelancers and agencies in eCommerce, digital marketing, web development, and much more. FreeeUp started with 5k in 2015 and was acquired in 2019: https://freeeup.com/blog/freeeup-updates/freeeup-acquired-by-hoth/ I am now working on outsourceschool.com : Outsource School is a course that will teach business owners and entrepreneurs how to interview, onboard, train, and manage VAs to scale their businesses. A little background: In 2006, I founded my first online venture out of my college dorm room, selling and buying student textbooks. I rapidly scaled my e-commerce business, bootstrapping from a $20 student - cause initiative to a multi-million dollar e-tailer clocking in revenues in excess of $25 million on Amazon across a 6 year period while serving over 10,000 customers. But I always had one problem. It took me way too long to find talent. I built FreeeUp to address the frustrations I had. FreeeUp receives thousands of freelancer applicants each week to join the marketplace. FreeeUp interviews and vets them, take the top 1% (based on skill, attitude and communication), and makes them available to clients quickly whenever they need them. On the backend, FreeeUp has 24/7 support to make sure clients have a good experience. Lastly, they have a no turnover guarantee covering replacement costs if the freelancer ever quits. FreeeUp works with thousands of business all over the world. Honesty, integrity, ethics and superlative customer experience have always been the four professional cornerstones of my success.

If you are operating on a small budget the best way is to find the workers yourself. Any company or agency will have slightly higher rates. In return you usually get more reliability. Its a trade off. I am an outsourcing expert, feel free to reach out to me if needed.
