"Just wanted to say a quick thank you! I signed up with your site 3 days ago and was just hired by a wonderful company that I can’t wait to start working with! You guys are amazing, keep up the good work!" ❤️
I was rejected for the first job that I applied for on HireMyMom. That, ultimately, ended up being the beginning of my success story. When I was rejected, I was crushed, but I emailed the employer thanking them for their time and asked that she keep me in mind for future projects. To my surprise, she did reach back out to me when her selected applicant went on vacation. After working with me for two weeks, she decided that she wanted to keep me on. That was almost five years ago and not only do I still work with/for her -- we have grown to become good friends.
My business is now an LLC, has a strong client base, and has grown enough that I am back on HireMyMom. This time, as an employer looking for help managing the growth of my own business. I am truly grateful for HireMyMom and the blessings it has ushered into my life.
"Thank you for all of your help, HireMyMom is a safe site, and I refer a lot of my friends and family that are looking to your site."
"This fall I found my THIRD job with this amazing website. I have referred HireMyMom.com countless times. It has been a HUGE blessing to me and afforded me the opportunity to spend this invaluable time with my son."
"I wanted to thank you because I got a job from your site within a few weeks. You can be sure that if I'm ever in the market for another job, going back to hiremymom.com will be the first thing I do! Thank you!"
“Hiremymom.com has been life changing for me as I’ve been introduced to two amazing opportunities through this website. The amount of opportunity I’ve seen for those of us looking for that perfect balance is incredible. I’ve recommended this site so many times and will continue to do so. Keep up the great work, your site and service is unique and incredible!”
"When my baby was born in 2012, I knew I had to work at home because I didn’t want to miss out on her precious milestones. I had no clue how to work profitably from home. I knew I wanted to work part-time making the same salary as my previous job. After researching several work-at-home websites, I came across HireMyMom.com. I was pleasantly surprised to find projects that matched my marketing skillset."
"I was able to grow my company with your service and were now in 5,000 stores. We have five moms with us. Always referring my friends who are business owners and telling them how smart these women are and amazing to work with.”
According to Recuriterbox, over 53 million people are currently freelancing and by 2020, over 40% of the workforce is expected to be independent contractors. It is a growing trend that many businesses are seeing the rewards of. Before you jump in, here are 5 things to know about hiring virtual help.
One of the biggest mistakes I see business owners and freelancers make is a lack of good communication from the beginning. It is important to create a very detailed and accurate job posting so that you attract the right candidate who is qualified for your project or job. It is also imperative to lay out clear expectations on the work to be performed, expected results as well as deadlines. I recommend doing a Skype or FaceTime call with your candidates and not only talking about the job and expectations but also spending time to get to know the person so you can develop a mutually beneficial working relationship.
Many times, those who are seeking virtual jobs are seeking those jobs at least partly for the flexibility that comes with it. Be clear about the expectations you have for your virtual team member. And if you need someone during specific hours, also be clear about that. Flexibility can work great for both parties. It just needs to be clear to both sides when the work is needed and expected and if the contractor needs to be available at set times.
Even at a higher hourly rate, expect to save 20 to 30 percent annually with a freelancer given that you will not have to pay for benefits, health insurance, retirement, Medicare or Social Security. You also save on office space, computers and other office supplies. On the other hand, your freelancer does have to pay all of those costs so instead of looking to hire at rock bottom prices, factor in at least $4-5 more an hour for the expenses they will have to incur.
Independent contractors and freelancers run their own business, which is dependant on happy and returning clients. You know as a business owner, its much more cost efficient to keep a client than to try to find a new one. Because of that, most freelancers will strive to deliver their best work to keep their clients. While traditional employees performance may vary, freelancers know their job is only as good as their last project.
Not all freelance websites are created equally. Some have millions of users all over the world. While others are more specific to the industry or type of freelancer. For instance, HireMyMom.com is a niche website geared toward Mom Professionals who have left the workforce for the flexibility to work from home. Business owners find dedicated and dependable contractors or virtual employees without sorting through hundreds of resumes. They also benefit from hiring someone in or near their time zone for ease of working relationship as well as not having to deal with issues faced in countries with undependable Internet and electricity. Whatever your needs, be sure to find the right website to help you succeed.
So when it comes time to expand your virtual team, knowing what to expect and more about the process will help you be more prepared and ready for success!
