Two Free Tools Entrepreneurs Can't Live Without

We know, we know — you’re kind of a big deal. But you still need a little help now and then, especially when you’re a small business looking to grow, and fast! Here’s who to turn to for a (free) hand-up:
 

 

1. oDesk: Post an assignment you need completed (like writing a blog post, fixing a software glitch, or developing a new logo) and qualified contractors bid for completing it. The system works on a straightforward guarantee of payment for hourly work, which leaves contractors free to do the work they get paid for — and do it right!

 

2. Elance: Catering to specialized projects, Elance lets you outsource to expert programmers, designers, writers, translators, marketers, researchers and administrative contractors with tested skills. Working in the cloud allows you to see your project through completion, and every step of the way. Bootstrapping at its best.
