Hello Uthay,

This is Lara from Freelancer.com.

I understand that it’s a bit challenging to get projects on our site, or any other site for that matter.

I suggest that you take time in completing your profile so employers may be impressed and the chance to be hired will be higher.

Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for first-time blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.

This is a load of BS. Freelancer.com has got to be the worst website I have ever tried to use in my life, plus they take your money without thinking twice. That site is a grey market scam and they should be charged.

There is another site I use where I’ve actually made money. I won’t mention it after flaming freelancer or it would seem like an advertisement, but it isn’t even mentioned in this list! What a crazy world.

Available convenient search goes freelancers in hundreds of skills, contacts, geographical location, hourly, monthly and project rate.
Freelancers are available comfortable “endless” wall, publishing videos, adding users to friends and much more.
Our plans for the next three months:
– Board jobs;
– Functional freelance exchange, allowing employers to place projects and competitions, freelancers respond.

This list is very helpful and I appreciate your posting it. BUT…be aware that some of these sites will only offer you very limited access to jobs (or in some cases, such as Freelance Switch, none at all) without your ponying up for a paid subscription.

It sounds sweet at first – they will entice you with loads of job listings and free signup, then tell you you either cannot actually apply for any or you can only apply for a few unless you pay. The “basic” free membership is thus basically equivalent to a “cripple-ware” demo.

Some will offer a free 30-day trial *if* you give over your credit card or PayPal info; be especially suspicious of these and check them out thoroughly before taking such a risk.

Fellow Freelancers,
I am a developer and heard about this site called http://www.desksumo.com which is going to get launched soon. They will be offering time tracking, billling, customer management, calendar management and reporting for only $1.99 per month. You can register on their website at http://desksumo.com/#. I will be going for them as it will save me almost 80% of what I am currently paying to Harvest.

Another one is Microlancer.com – you can set your own prices and are not contacted unless a client is willing to pay upfront (no bidding).

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence
on just posting videos to your weblog when you could
be giving us something informative to read?

So what about StudentFreelance.com?

Have any of you all tried out adtriboo.com – an outsourcing and crowdsourcing marketplace based in Spain but also set-up in Latin America, USA and UK. Its a varied set of clientele comprised of entrepreneurs and small businesses from these countries – a lot of interesting projects ! The site started in Spanish but now its fully operational in Spanish and English. It offers better pay for my freelancing work because adtriboo encourages high remuneration for the quality work delivered. Of course as for every freelancer platform, a quality profile is a winner! 
here is their link http://www.adtriboo.com/en_US/

Priyanka June 11, 2013 at 5:32 pm

The bigger the site the more the competition and the tougher it gets to bag your first project. http://www.valuehands.com plans on launching in a few days with endless opportunities for freelancers. Keep a close watch on this one.

I waste so much less time now that I get work through http://www.workersoncall.com. I used to waste rediculous amounts of time on odesk and freelancer just applying for jobs and never even hearing back. Now I just hop onto workers oncall for a couple hours and start working right away. They have a feature that shows employers when you are online and available, so often I’ll log in, grab coffee, and have 2 or 3 job offers by the time I sit down!
