Outsourcing can surely make you save money and is very effective but only if you follow some guidelines. Because even though there are lots of benefits of outsourcing, I have to admit that there are also some disadvantages.
One good tip is always being open on hiring anyone, anywhere. There are lots of applicants who are willing to work for you and are every bit suited for the position that can be found half way around the world. This is where freelance sites like odesk and elance comes in. But you also have to have a great method of hiring to make sure you'd have high quality results. Remember, lesser cost doesn't necessarily mean poor quality.
