I joined Elance to find new outsourcing clients several weeks ago.
There are a lot of projects posted, but unfortunately, at the same time there are too many competitors!
For one project, there could be more than 10 companies bidding on it.
Worse, because there are so many bidders, prices have gone so low that they no longer make financial sense.
If Kim and Mauborgne (authors of the Blue Ocean Strategy) look at Elance, they will say that it is a bloody red ocean.
So I quit Elance, and now currently looking for ways to get out of this red ocean and swim into the blue ocean…
When there is a will, there is a way!
