FreeUp's Online Hiring Blog
Learn to interview, hire, integrate, and manage freelancers. The Online Hiring blog gives you the education to build a dominant online team.
If you’re like most of our readers, you’re an online business owner with high-reaching goals. You’ve built a company from the ground up and you’re striving towards an even greater life – both personally and professionally. You want to own a business that works for you instead of relying 100% upon you.
However, you’ve had some poor hiring experiences in the past and you’re hesitant to build a team of professionals around you. Maybe you’ve been scarred by someone you hired or you’ve heard too many horror stories from other friends running their own business. Whatever the case may be, you’re cautious to get back into hiring freelancers to grow your business.
Maybe you feel like this:
I feel trapped. I’ve built my business to an amazing place, but the amount of work on my plate is overwhelming. No matter what I do, I can’t figure it out. It’s wearing on me in both my professional and personal life. I constantly wonder how I can fix my situation.
Do You Resonate With These?
Think carefully as you read these next questions.
- Do you feel like you have too much on your plate every single day?
- Do you wish that you had more time to focus on growth for your business?
- Do you see a need to hire in order to grow your business further?
Overcoming the barrier of passing work off to someone else is one of the hardest obstacles for business owners to make. It’s plagued entrepreneurs for many, many decades.
We Get How You Feel
We understand the mental trauma you’re going through because we were once in your shoes. When we started our first business and built it to a point where projects and tasks were piling over our heads, we were extremely overwhelmed. We knew that we needed to make a change, but we weren’t sure what the best move was.
Through the 7+ years that we’ve been growing our companies, we’ve been exposed to the power of hiring freelancers to complement your founding team. We learned how to hire freelancers and have hired hundreds of remote workers to fill in holes within our companies where we couldn’t pay attention any longer.
Today, we continue to run our first eCommerce business with a team of 10+ skilled freelancers handling everything from fulfilling orders to optimizing listings for Amazon SEO. With FreeeUp, we have an internal team of over 30 freelancers who specialize in the areas that drive growth for our business. As the owners of the company, we stay focused on growth projects and motivating our team to continue moving forward in innovative ways.
But it took time to get there. We spent 2+ years learning the best practices of recruiting, interviewing, hiring, onboarding, and managing freelancers running into many horror stories along the way.
Our Goal in Creating This Blog
When we decided to start FreeeUp, our mission was to eliminate the horror stories for other business owners by pre-vetting all freelancers upfront. In creating this blog, we set a goal to educate our clients and outside business owners on the secrets to hiring the right people, staying focused on growth initiatives, and managing through sound communication.
We concluded that if we could teach other business owners what we had learned about hiring freelancers, we would be able to minimize the horror stories and create a community where outsourcing became a strength for all.
