From the desk of: Howard Tiano, a.k.a. the "IM OutSourcerer"
Dear Overwhelmed Marketer,
re you spending huge amounts of time and money on your online business, only to see it crawling along, with few projects getting done, and even fewer are profitable?
Do you secretly get envious, even a little mad at yourself when you hear about how so-and-so just made six figures, million-dollar launches, and Clickbank screen shots showing thousands of dollars per day?
Ever wonder how it is that others seem to create and launch products so frequently?
If you are like most people, you've wasted countless hours on mind numbing, time sucking, energy draining repetitive busy work. Most of these tasks can be accomplished with only a few project posts on the freelance sites.
Read on, and you'll learn how to use and apply the same "secret weapons" that top marketers do to get their products made, launched, and supported with apparent ease.
Does This Sound Familiar?
Maybe you've been there before. The late nights, the computer crashes, the complicated software, struggling with your copy, and the feeling that you're a slave to your business.
Is your learning curve steeper than your "earning curve?"
How about the toll on our relationships? Has anyone else out there been accused of, not being any more fun? Fun? I think I remember...
Oh, and lets not forget all the books and courses, seminars, videos and audios that are bending our closet shelves just from the sheer weight! Still in it's shrink wrap?
"My name is Howard, and I am a recoveringinfo junkie"
I would find myself spending hours on the search engines tracking down "how to" info and resources to find help in doing these seemingly smallest tasks:
Putting audio on a page...
Writing a sales letter, or auto responder series...
Graphics for a new website...
Putting tracking code on my site...
Finding affiliate products...
Running a Pay Per Click campaign...
Using a cool walk-on video actor for my salesletter......
...and hundreds of other tasks! it all looked so easy to do! Why bother hiring a ___(insert your own expert here)_____? I can do this!
I'll bet you can guess what happened next. I started learning how to do all these tasks myself!I learned html, some copy, some Photoshop, marketing...I was already using audio and video as a musician, so I would do all those tasks as well!
But that's just half the story...
I Was Addicted to the "Get Rich Quick Online" Crack
I would spend thousands of dollars buying the latest "how to" products, in dozens of topics, spending thousands of hours learning and trying to figure it all out!
I would buy all the tools, "secrets", white hat, black hat, coaching, live events - whatever it took.
But here's the scary part... I wasn't making any money!
Was I crazy? All that time, effort, and energy - and what did it get me? Lack of sleep, stress, frustration, a marriage teetering on the brink due to neglect...
Until one day I stumbled upon a brief report on how to post a project on Elance.com
Then it hit me...
I checked into...
Let me explain what I mean...
I had been running an off-line business for years, and would be hiring people and building teams all the time - but never really thought of it as outsourcing!
And I never really considered outsourcing my Internet business tasks to people on the other side of the globe before either.
Somehow, I knew this would be my salvation.
Now, thanks to a strict information diet and a healthy dose of outsourcing, life is returning to a normal balance of work and play, and my online income is growing by leaps and bounds!
Don't Despair. It's not your fault
Look, we're in a market where the top marketers in the world are playing our psychological triggers like Liberace on the piano, and been sold the Internet Lifestyle fantasy of lying on the beach with a laptop and a margarita, pressing a few buttons while the cash comes pouring out your laptop! NOT!
So what does all this mean to you?
From the E-Myth to the Manifesto
From Michael Gerber's book the "E-Myth Revisited," to the graphic on the cover of Rich Schefren's Internet Business Manifesto, many online entrepreneurs are finally starting to get the message, you need to be working on your business, and not in your business!
In other words, you need help! Good help. so you don't have to be driving yourself crazy learning $10 an hour jobs, because you will only severely limit the amount of money you can make, and probably won't be enjoying life as much as you could!
"4 Hour Work Week" NY Times Best Seller by Tim Ferriss, Hype Or Holy Grail?
Timothy Ferris hit a nerve with his Best Seller, The 4 Hr. Work Week . His whole concept of mobility and time freedom was made possible by effective outsourcing!
Unleash The Power Of Leverage With Outsourcing
Leverage is tapping into the resources of others, to be able to multiply your efforts to achieve results exponentially beyond what you could do by yourself. You can leverage time, money, talents, systems, tools, networks, mentors, resources, knowledge, skill and relationships, to name a few.
It has never been easier finding people from all over the world to do the majority of your work for a fraction of the cost of a full time in-house employee. In fact, you don't even need an office if you dont want one! You can have a virtual office!
Eben Pagan, (a.k.a. David DeAngelo of doubleyourdating.com) created an 8 figure business, with over 80 employees, all of whom were virtual!
no investment in training,
no maternity leave
I'm talking outsourcing. Not the kind you hear about on the evening news. But on a much smaller scale. I mean real small. You can start with one
Technology has finally caught up with the promise of running a global empire from your cell phone!
Well that still may be a little difficult in practice! But the truth is, you could be working out of your spare bedroom and run a multinational corporation from your $79 Office Depot computer desk!
Now before you call out the hype police, I have to be up front with you. This does
require some effort, and a little learning up front. But its like any great offer, the rewards are in the back end.

What is NOT included, are resources that are overpriced, seem amateurish, or have bad reputations. Some of this is obviously objective, but part of this Directory's value is the filters that I've employed, rather than just a collection of search engine results!

It's taken hundreds of hours for me to amass this collection and put it together for you. I combed the Internet for the best directories and resources I could find and cherry-picked the best.

These resources have been carefully selected based on several factors:
Professional reputation in the industry - these are recommended by several top marketers and experienced professionals.
Pricing and value - some are known for good pricing, and some are known for high quality. These resources have a good amount of both.
Presentation of web site and services - sometimes you stumble upon things and bookmark for later reference, but you can tell from the look of this site and its presentation of services that it's worth a shot.
Personal experience - I have included my top picks that I've personally used, and omitted services I've had bad experiences with.
Uniqueness of service - things like animated characters, walk on video, and other out of the ordinary services made the list.
Inclusion in the other reputable directories
Obviously, I could not have personally tried 1500 services, not in this lifetime anyway :), so some discretion has been applied as far as including them in the directory. Your mileage may vary.
"I can't afford to hire anyone at this time"
I hear this a lot, and my reply is always "you can't afford to NOT hire anyone." When you add up the costs of doing it yourself, you may save a little money but you wind up squandering your most precious resource - your time!
"...will save me a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort."
"As someone who completely delegates several aspects of my business I thought I was aware of most of the outsourcing resources available to Internet Marketers. After spending the last few hours in your directory I've realized that what I knew barely scratched the surface.
I have just visited site after site and made three full pages of notes that I know will save me a tremendous amount of time, energy and effort.
I can't thank you enough for compiling this awesome list. You have provided an incredible resource for the Internet Marketing community."
"...BRILLIANT job of amassing a treasure trove of resources and secrets..."
"You've done an absolutely BRILLIANT job of amassing a treasure trove of resources and secrets from a host of experts to create a virtually painless "Easy Outsource System." Your highly practical approach brims with the tools and insights we need to hire a single assistant or start an outsourcing empire."
"Hey Howard: I just logged in to your Directory for the first time today and immediately found 3 resources I needed which I'm sure would have usually taken me at least 2 hours to track down... instead... 10 seconds! This is like an instant time management system!"

"...a priceless and invaluable resource!"
"I found so many great new things in the ultimate outsource directory I never even knew existed!
It would have taken me hours to drill down and find these sites a priceless and invaluable resource!
"The explanations in the "Covering Your Assets" video are truly golden! I appreciated your caveats on the limitations of PayPal, splitting up tasks across providers, and checking for plagiarized material before paying a provider."
Take a full 56 days to put The Ultimate Outsource Directory, along with the report, audio, ebook and the videos to work for you.
"If you can't easily follow the simple, step-by-step process in the System that takes the guesswork and risk out of outsourcing your internet marketing business, then blame it on me and request a full refund."
"You're fully protected by our iron-clad money-back guarantee:
"I'm so convinced that The Ultimate Outsource Directory will change lives for the better that I want you to have every cent back if it's not right for you. That's only fair. No questions asked. It's that simple."
O.K., here's the deal...
You really can't afford NOT to invest in the Ultimate Outsource Directory and training! A resource like this, considering it is a lifetime membership with frequent updates, audio and video training, my insider strategies to qualify and zero in on your best freelancers... even an entire beginner's guide!... should go for at least $97 per year.
You'll probably save at least 10 times that amount in freelancing costs, if you're lucky enough to get the fast mover bonus videos on negotiations, protecting yourself, and how to outsource for FREE!
Considering the time it's taken me to compile, sift through and qualify these resources, my wife already thinks I'm out of my mind for selling this for anything less than $197!
But that's not where I'm at. Sure, I can sell you a PDF full of a bunch of links and call it a day, and while that by itself is worth a lot, it doesn't serve you in the end. There's a lot of ins and outs to outsourcing, and I felt I needed to over deliver to make sure you didn't run into the same frustrations and I did when I was learning all this stuff!
So I added video...
I added audio....
I wrote a special report...
I added an e-book for beginners...
And if that weren't enough, I even created a step-by-step procedure so you can successfully post projects, to give you the best chance of succeeding.
Listen, I know what you're going through, and I want this to get into as many hands as possible because if you don't get the help you need, you're gonna quit out of frustration. Maybe you'll go crawling back to your day job. Maybe you'll struggle through and learn it the hard way.
I'm going to make it a total no-brainer, at a price so low, that for you to pass on this offer and choose to struggle through this process by trial and error would just be completely insane!
At first I thought $67 would be low enough, but I knew that even at that price there would still be some of you sitting on the fence and figure you'll just do everything yourself and save yourself some money! You know who you are...:) So it is for you especially, that I've lowered the price to $47.
But only for a while. I don't really want to reward or encourage people who can't make an intelligent decision about their business, and are going to dwell on spending $47 to turn their business life around, and dramatically improve their personal lives in the process!
Besides that, I've got to restrict the sales somewhat - some of the major providers listed here have expressed concern about getting a surge of a thousand new users at once, so I'll have to pull this offer periodically to give them a chance to catch up!
So I'll be bumping it back up to $67, or maybe even $77. Eventually it'll settle at $97, which is still a great bargain considering everything in this package! So be decisive NOW, and join the Ultimate Outsource Directory Membership!
YES, OutSourcerer!I want to reclaim my time and get more projects done in less time, with less stress, and leverage the efforts of others to explode my profits!
