So uh ya, just wondering. Any of you guys do freelance programming or anything of the sort via one of those freelance sites? I used to try to via Freelancer.com. Man what a crap-shoot. That place blows. First of all, you have 2 million Indians working for $3 an hour it's like how do you compete? Then when you actually make your $2.50/hour (to win the job ), Freelancer then takes a good portion. I just started with elance.com. I made $110 today (wordpress clone & custom scraper). While that amount isn't gonna make me rich, I feel it's a good start and a nice break from my hit-and-miss internet marketing. They take a percentage of your money like everyone else but I find it extremely easy to obtain jobs vs freelancer.com. On Freelancer, I'd bid on like 20 jobs and get one. Today I bid on two and got them both . I've tried two other sites along the way but I can't remember them. I am really liking Elance though. Each client has paid up and 2/4 so far have given me repeat work. Fuck Freelancer.com, Period. I'm always looking for a way to make a lil more so I figured I'd post this. If you freelance via a site like Freelancer or Elance, which site you use and what do you think the pros/cons are and how's the money? Freelancer Pros: None. Freelancer Cons: They don't care about the freelancers... Only their bottom line - $$$ Elance Pros: Much less bloated compared to Freelancer. No annoying self-promotion. Can actually get jobs that pay the bills. Elance Cons: I'm unhappy that you have a limited amount of bids each month - "Connects". Some jobs take 1 "Connect" while others take 4. I know I read why somewhere but I can't find it again. It seems all freelance type sites do this sort of thing however.
