Small businesses increasingly are tapping a new talent pool: the world.

A new generation of online service marketplaces is giving small companies more opportunities than ever to find specialized expertise and affordable labor. Main Street businesses can shop a virtual international bazaar of freelancers to recruit computer programmers in Russia, graphic designers in San Francisco or data analysts in India.

The key, I think, is outsourcing things that don't fall under the heading of your core competency. Our business started around the idea of providing services companies may not do well on their own because they have very little to do with their core business.
