Remote workers are an enormous source of labor potential, and more and more entrepreneurs are tapping them for their small businesses. Without the need to uproot and move to your location, the right remote workers for your business can be easier to target than local talent. The question is, how do you find and hire these people?
Craigslist is one solution, but that’s like casting a fishing line into the ocean and hoping to catch one particular fish. It’s better to target workers in more specific places. Your blog readership, for example, might comprise your best candidate pool. They’re familiar with your business and are interested in what you have to say. There are also plenty of job posting sites like ProBlogger and FlexJobs that you can post to. Next, you need to understand and target the right behavioral issues. You have to understand why candidates want to work remotely and how they get their work done. You must know exactly what you’re looking for in a remote worker and provide a clear set of expectations and open communication. It can be tough to find the right people when you can’t meet them face to face, but the results can be worth it!
