Choosing the right outsourcer and a successful long term partnership with your outsourcers depends on few following few thumb rules.
Has the outsourcer any prior work experience
A prior work experience in your nature of work will ensure that your outsourcer does not throw last minute surprises at you. Select experienced professionals, not necessarily a large company. Smaller companies tend to pay more attention to their clients and are more cautious in delivering the best service they can. Start with something smaller and expand as you go, that way you will reduce the risk.
Work out your agreement carefully
From the software, resources, to the process have a good understanding and agree on the details.
Define KPIs of your deliverables

Discuss and plan the volume of work
Intimation of volume of work, helps both you and outsourcer, to plan resources, deliverables etc.
Feedback is essential
Do not hesitate to be vocal about your feedback, raise the flag if you have issues.
