Hire Top Talent On A Temporary Or Part-Time Basis To Instantly Increase Business Productivity

This week we interview Nate Hirsch from, who teaches us how you can use freelancers to scale your company on a budget.  Nathan Hirsch is a 28 year old serial entrepreneur who is an expert in hiring online and building eCommerce businesses. He co-founded his first eCommerce company out of his dorm room in 2009  built it to sell over $25 million worth of product over 5 years.

While scaling, Nathan discovered the power of outsourcing and ended up building a remote army of freelancers.  In 2015, Nathan co-founded and became the CEO of FreeeUp, an online hiring marketplace that allows business owners fast access to a hand-picked network of top talent freelancers in eCommerce, digital marketing, web development, and much more who have already been vetted for skill, attitude, and communication.

Nate shares his story of entrepreneurship, delegation, and scaling a small business on a bootstrap budget.  Using freelancers to supplement your team can provide some great benefits to local business owners.  You can hire top quality individuals quickly, and instantly improve the talent on your team - often with higher skill sets and lower costs than if you were to hire local talent.  Learn how FreeUp only accepts the top 1% of all freelancers into it's pipeline, and how you can get started with a discount for being a Local SEO Tactics listener!
