1Does the contractor have the relevant skills we need for the project?
Would they be able to add value?
Would you consider them an expert in the field?
15
2Make an assessment on the rates of the contractor.
NB: Avoid hiring based on low cost because you get what you pay for. In saying that, some contractor’s rates are excessive; so just make sure they're reasonable.
Beware--many new contractors propose a low rate, then any additional work is significantly higher. Ask if this rate applies for future jobs.
16
3Has the site (Guru or Fiverr) given the contractor a high rating or other types of accolades?
Eg. Pro badges, Test scores, Performance ratings.
If they do have a high rating check they haven’t stacked their reviews ie. lots of reviews from the same person with low-quality comments (see question 4).
If new to Guru/Fiverr this criteria isn't a deciding factor—please score at 2 Medioce.
17
4Does the contractor have reviews or testimonials from various sources?
Are they well written?
Do they suggest an ability to problem solve and overcome any problems?
If new to Guru/Fiverr check their website for testimonials and/or ask contractor for previous clients you can contact for feedback.
18
5Do they have a team behind them?
This shows an ability to form a relationship going forward, and they are more likely to be accountable and meet deadlines.
Don’t discount single operators, but consider the pros and cons of all factors.

6Ask a couple of questions of your shortlisted applicants. Rate the contractor on communication.
How well did the contractor communicate?
Were these responses timely?
Are they articulate, do they ask the right questions and show a knowledge of the skills required?
Were communications typo-free and grammatically correct?
When they responded to your job did they quote on your job in particular, or did they post a standard template response?

Make sure you ask whether they have questions before accepting their proposal.

8Rate the commitment of the contractor in delivering to our deadlines.
Is your timeline realistic to them?
If you were unsure on the timing of the project, did you get their help estimating the timing of a project, and did you feel their estimation was reasonable?
