Hiring a New Virtual Assistant for Content Proofreading

  • Screened all applicants who have applied for our job post, and shortlisted two of them.
  • Also sent a message to one of them.
  • I was reviewing Fivver and found out that Fiver could also be a good place for outsourcing proofreading jobs, and we can also find people who are native English speakers and offering up to 5000 words per $5.
  • I have hired a Freelancer from USA who offered $3 for 1500 words.
  • Then opened a $5 fixed price project, prepared initial instructions and also prepared the files for the first batch of 2500 words.

  • Regarding Dropbox video, the subtitles which you were reviewing are automatic (self generated by YouTube). However, I have unpublished automatic subtitles now.
  • Reworked the video, reduced the length of the first slide, re-uploaded the video to YouTube. Please have a review of it and let me know if you need any further assistance.
