I just went through this video and I think the process displayed on the video is probably one of the best way to start outsourcing any services you are offering to your clients.

In the video, that guy Daniel Schiffer selects around 10 video editors to create a 30 second commercial using only shots that he took on his own.
the editors are getting paid between $25 and $500 for doing the same job and at the end of the video he ranks the videos he received based on their quality.
Unfortunately, he knows how much each video costed when he is evaluating them, so the process is a little bit biased but the final ranking is still interesting.

Do the same in your industry and you might find some really good freelancers (by good I mean, when you compare value for money) to outsource your work too.

In the final ranking, we can see that Czarekpiast and Liamdix0n are potentially the best person to outsource your work too.

Unfortunatelly, Fiverr doesn't provide us with a $1500 gift card to try the different freelancers on their platform but I still think it can be worth the money and the time invested.

Well, yes, but only if you have an youtube channel big enough to get most of that money back anyway, no?

Just a thought, I'm no expert in this, not at all.

In my opinion, it's not about getting the money back straight away.
The goal would be more to find a reliable person to outsource your work to for a good price.
On the long run, it is certainly worth the investment.

You can also start small, you don't have to spend $1500 to run this kind of "experiment".

Well,but what about freelancers changing their rates? Let's suppose you expose the cheapest ones,or even if you don't...they increase the rate anyway, then how much money do you really save? It isn't the expected - people have work consistently,so their rate goes up? It is what will happen in the long run,because clients will always be back if you have the best price/ratio relation?

And how do I know it was a false positive? Someone that was just good in this particular project,but usually it doesn't deliver so well?

I am having problems structuring the strategy to try to see how I am not dependent on the will of the freelancers. Like,I see the idea of not spending a lot of money, I see how that could work,being little risky,but then I guess you can't really evaluate how effective it was.

This idea was not to make a video of it but to do it and keep the results for yourself of course.

Yes, I also thought this could happen but then I guess there is nothing you can do about it, you'll find out if you hire that guy again and he doesn't deliver the same value the next times.

I was considering this method as a good start, a method to do a first sort through the available freelancers.

What would be your suggestion on a good way to do it?

I understand,try to get someone to hire you and build confidence and so on,picking the most appropriated person.

I honestly don't know.
I guess people will more and more invest in portefolio projects in some skills so that might help solving the problem. But I need to admit I need to think better about this.
