Delegation Upwork: what is mechanics?

Dear colleagues, please tell me.

I do some freelancing on Upwork, I have a top rated account (it is a personal, not Agency), now I want to expand and actively delegate tasks. But there are a number of issues.

First, a purely conceptual: how acceptable it is to find a client with a personal profile and say to him: "I plan to work with a team, do you mind?" - and, if necessary, to invite him to enter into a contract with the Agency.

Second, there are a number of issues purely on mechanics (i.e., organizational). At the moment I see the following options for the organization of work:

1. To work as an Agency. At first glance, the easiest way, because the client simply pays for all the staff and the money goes to them, I am required a minimum of fuss. But I have suggested that anybody to me will not want to work because I never in fact never saw and never received any proposals to work through an Agency. Intuitively it seems to me that if I caught an employee on Upwork, he will not agree to join my Agency, but if Upwork out - he will not agree to register there, especially to work for my Agency (especially if he's not a freelancer). Please tell me if this is really the case or am I mistaken?

2. Contract, personal profile and hire people separately. Agree on the fact that I work with the team. Time employees be added either as a manual watch (the problem is that you can add a maximum of 24 per day) or to take only fixed price projects, or to work through hourly project, and a staff request to open a separate contract and invoice as milestones (I don't know, would the clients like to work - sounds too hard).

Please advise the best option, ideally from personal experience. I see many start-up companies in the beginning of the work, but for me it is not obvious how they arrange everything.

Thank you in advance.

I preduprezhdal their customers that the design, layout and tasks I delegate because I am a programmer, not a handyman. People refer to it as normal, especially if to mention that testers and coders on average significantly cheaper programmers and impractical to take on tasks not requiring high qualification.

Accordingly if you find a person who will not be able to do your job completely for you, make everything important themselves, and part of the work, which is easier to give him then I see no reason why this man is not going to work on your terms.

But the answer for the quality I have without any excuses that it is Bob wrong.

My answer is not quite relevant, you may come across a thought.
I work as a freelancer offline.
When too many orders, delegate only PART of the freelance exchange.
Customers do not talk about it as a freelancer can not say what made the WHOLE order.
Do not work with agencies because of the belief that there the Manager keeps a percentage and delegate somebody got (the price is higher, quality is lower).
Every order I personally check and correct deficiencies - are gradually removed from the role of artist and take a leadership role.
The next step I saw at the start of a successful company now - it's the Director took the students on a quarter bet. There were a few programmers, a few designers took a good full time as the growth of orders.
And all of this was kept on the project management system.

You just decide for yourself whether you want to work with a agent to develop in this area or not. A day to generate and process leads - for some it's fun, and for someone hard work, in any case, it's a big emotional burden. To get more spitting in the face, than many get in a year, but you can sell the day so many man-hours of other professionals that then a month can be fun and not work. First, it is a question of probability, and later the question prodovolchogo skill.

Send feedback with your personal account, and then turn the client to the Agency, so that he was glad of it - that is the talent of the seller. Either you have it or not, but you can certainly develop it in yourself.

1) agree to work with you, the freelancer, who does not see value in you. Increase your value and offer the cooperation of a large number of freelancers. Again, anybody in the Agency do not need. Less is better. In the Western market the price is not that much talent, but at least a big commitment. And the agent can be taken in different ways. When you take the whole amount themselves, and then share - so, of course, easier for your Agency to obtain, but the tax burden increases. When you just pay for what you gave the client - then you need more confidence, but less liability, and the tax burden - is small.

2) every expert shall be a separate hourly contract and everyone needs it important to track their time separately is the best option.

Perfectly normal to work with a team, all one can do is extremely difficult
1. The Agency conveniently in terms of certain automation, but again if you say someone is sitting on the salary , and the contract hourly too difficult.

2. Both options are OK, given the fact that a week is 7*24 hours manual is no problem.
