Why Are Freelancers Expensive Compared to Outsourcing Companies




One must wonder why freelancers are far more costly compared to getting one from an outsourcing company in the Philippines when it practically is third world and everything is expected to be cheaper than the usual. This is one of the few mistakes that most clients do not understand.

Most freelancers settle with a 1mbps speed for most basic work that doesn't need much software, but for most freelancers that use quite a number of software all together which requires more speed usage a higher internet speed would be needed. What actually happens often is that, a 1mbps subscription doesn't actually run exactly as what it has promised to most subscribers.

Here is an example of a 1mbps subscription and what it's current speed when tested.




Based on the photo from above, serious internet workers would rather invest to a higher internet speed or a business line and this is not as cheap as most people would assume it is.

If you'll notice, it's not quite a friendly price after all... Now, the next question is, why is it cheaper to hire people from outsourcing agencies as to compared to freelancers? I'll give you two simple answers.

ANS: Blunt truth, several computers are sharing a supposed to be fast speed internet connection intended for a maximum amount of units.

Now, it's for you to decide.
