    I posted all over the internet looking for a marketing specialist/data entry to work for me and offer $150 per month plus 50% of all revenues generated not one response. I then offered the same for 20 hours, again no interest.

    Sachin, I am afraid I don't agree with you. In India cost of living is also cheaper. There are and will be rich and poor people everywhere, but you cannot just comment like it.
    Ya, you can say, it is cheaper to get your work done here than in US.
    Other Indians, correct me if I am wrong

    My comment was based on facts.

    You can check that anywhere in the internet.

    Most of people like you do not see beyond their immediate surroundings. Just because a small portion of Indians have seen dramatic rise of income in last 15 years doesn't mean India has become a rich country...even after adjusting for purchasing power parity , India still remains a very poor country with annual average income of less than 1000 dollars a year.

    Just for a day, stop and think about all the people that are part of your life...starting for the guys who deliver your newspaper and milk in the morning, the municipality employees that clean your streets everyday, your post man, the lady that cleans your vessels and washes you clothes, the rickshawalas and bus drivers that take you to work...... I can go on and on.

    Not even 10% of Indians have internet access....all Indian members on DP are amongst the richest 5% of India.

    There is lot more to India than we you can see from your window.

    Only a third of population of India lives in cities.

    Majority of Indians live in villages and are deprived of even basic ammenities like sanitation and health care.

    You can get low cost workers in small towns and cities, but you have to search.

    $1200 in India is rich. Not saying you shouldn't pay them that but whoever is getting it is tap dancing in the street. Even the $450 guys have reason to celebrate.

    @sachin410 Just want to let you know I'm not Indian, but you are a good example of bad communication skills. Why would you use phrases like "India ranks a pathetic." And there is nothing wrong with countries like Tonga and Angola or people living in villages. This is the type of arrogance is not necessary. You wanted information on outsourcing a project. There no reason to talk negatively about other people's countries. What do you think, your better than these people? I can't stand arrogant people like you. I've had a lot of great experiences working with programmers in India by the way. They work hard and many of them are trust worthy. Their prices are also much better than the US.

    I live in india and the first resolution I made was never to do an outsourcing business. Usually I do my own business targeting global economy. Most Indian friends I have are just looking for a short term gain and are satisfied with an average salary for $500-$5000. They're are rarely people looking at the future. Why work for pennies when you have the brains and capability to make the next 'Microsoft' or 'Google'. But I guess its the same all over the world :D They're are 4 indian billionaires in top 10 forbes billionaire list. I use cheap indian labour for sure and also did outsource stuff once or twice when I was a noob, but would never make it my sole business ;)

    As per the op's question, you can get people to work for $100/mo (Yes, no kidding!) but if you want quality, I would say atleast $500/mo. I currently have 3 employees working from $200/mo to $800/mo and are very reliable and hard working. I would also add that indians are very hard working and honest, if you find the right guys.

    Regards,
    Richie

    You would probably find a better measurement of income level would be the median income as opposed to the average income. I think that gives a better indication of living conditions.
    I've had one Pakistani do a data entry job for me and it was a waste of time. However I should have put more time and effort into finding the right person.

    Americans complain all the time about Mexico when they have no idea of the dent that India is putting in the American Economy working and doing skilled progamming jobs on-line for .50 cents an hour, personally I would never outsource anything to Indian, when you see a piece of software you know is worth 30 times the price you see it for on the net you can bet that is someone from india lowballing with a cuthroat price !

    Hi Richie,
    I am not sure why were banned..

    But i agree with you in terms of quality of work people do.. NOT all people do a good quality work.. Also in MOST OF INDIAN FAMILIES.. to WORK means to go a WORKPLACE or run a SHOP of their own.. majority people DONOT consider sitting at home and working online as WORKING, so people tend to look for traditional jobs..

    Most people who work online are students, part timers, a VERY FEW very talented ones..

    I used to work online actively when i was a student and got a PART TIME job with a enterpenurer in Australia and working with him part time for over 4 years and pays a decent amount per hour of work.. So i stopped working online on very low paying works..

    The same is the case with few of my friends..

    So if you are expecting things of GOOD quality i would recommend you look for a decent employee with DECENT skills. Rather than blaming for poor quality i recommend hiring a decent skilled person by paying a decent amount..

    I see $200 to $800 is a nice deal.

    Regards,
    Leela

    1000 USD per month would get you some no experience bubble heads that barely speak English . If you need cheap programmers with good skills look up students in the US , EU or Australia . You can get them to work like mad men for 1000 USD and they certainly don't lack any skills . Hell if you know how to manage people you can even get 2 full time programmers people working 750 USD a pop if we are talking about poor places in the US or Europe .

    If it is easy and you give exact instruction you can outsource then.
    You should try scriptlance.com for a start. This is because there you can see how much you will pay them ( as there are bids ) and people might even do you work for less than you expected.
