Online or internet outsourcing refers to the practice of using third-party labor to complete projects, supply products or provide services. Outsourcing is often used for projects that you simply don’t have the time or requisite skills to complete. Common internet tasks that are often outsourced are website design, technical support, analysis, content creation and research.

Key benefits of outsourcing online projects

Using a specialist team, either in your own country or abroad, frees up your time to perform other tasks. Brief your external team on your requirements and away they’ll go.

Outsourcing enables you to benefit from others, expertise, technology and knowledge. Especially in the online arena, best practice changes regularly so if you’re more of an all-rounder, hiring a specialist in one particular field can be hugely beneficial.

It can be more cost effective to outsource for a short term or part time project. Hiring regular staff can be a lengthy and expensive process and office rental prices are often at a premium.

Your specific requirements will be met as you’ll document the actions needed and your external team will deliver the final result on your budget and timeline.

If you’re posting jobs to workers in countries ahead of your timezone, you can post a task before you leave for the day and probably have the completed project on your desk when you arrive back in the office in the morning.

Individual projects should be agreed on a fixed cost basis to encourage maximum productivity. If you have ongoing tasks an amicable hourly rate can also be reached.

Here's 5 benefits to outsourcing your training delivery:
Cut Your Costs: Instantly cut costs like venue hire, instructors, I.T Support, catering and travel. It doesn't have to be all of your learning program that moves online, a blended learning program is often preferred because every person learns differently so it helps to combine different methods. But even if you get the bulk of it up online - bingo! - you're substantially reducing your costs.
Increase Your Efficiency: Now you don't have to spend all that time preparing for the class each time, delivering the content at a pace everyone can handle, doing Q&A sessions or marking assessments, you can put your focus in to your content, course design and delivering timely, effective feedback.Focus on what you're good at: Design your learning content (or outsource that part again, depending on what your exact role is), put it up online as courses and then let the delivery specialists do what they're good at. It's their job to provide you with a fully functioning, easy-to-use framework to manage your training program, deliver your content out to your trainees efficiently, while notifying you of their progress and recording their achievements.Size Doesn't Matter: Most smaller companies can't afford to offer the scale of training program that big companies can. Moving your training to a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) training platform that charges based on usage means you can have access to the same tools as the big guys, and puts everyone on a level playing field.Reduce Risk: Hosting your own training program whether it's on your own servers, or in those classroom sessions, involves multiple levels of risk. You or a trainee could be sick on the day of the course, something could go wrong with your IT connections or servers, with the catering company, or with transport and all of these risks are on your shoulders. With outsourcing, your outsource provider assumes and manages all risks involved in their area of expertise.

Outsourcing is the best way to eliminate high-cost workers. Cutting costs isn’t the only reason to use outsourcing within your company, but it is a vital factor. Outsourcing can benefit your business in many ways. By taking part in outsourcing it allows you to avoid an excessive amount of expenditures in the early stages of your business. Today, a lot of the best outsourcing companies that we can name in the market but we should choose the best ones who offer best profitable outsourcing practice. We have Odesk, Elance, Vworker, Staff.com and a lot more. But if I'm going to review I would give a thumbs up to Staff.com, they have their own in house specialist who can help you provide a staff until they get hired. Or, much alike, if you’re tired of doing interviews you can just sit and relax and they will do it all for you.
