    I tried Freelancer, I got one job. Done it in like 30 minutes and got $20, everything was cool. But now 2 days later I got 0 jobs. I bided to like 50 different jobs, even boosted bid for few of them. Offered awesome time for finishing project, but nothing. What to do? I know HTML,CSS and Javascript - no backend programing languages like php.

    As someone who has posted projects on Freelancer I find that the vast majority of responses are utter crap.

    Common issues;

    - haven't read the brief, or if they have they do not refer to it in their bid
    - clear that they send the same proposal to every project - with perhaps minor changes
    - poor English
    - poor grammar
    - too cheap
    - too expensive
    - look as if they are over promising
    - bare profile and portfolio

    In summary most people bidding can be dismissed incredibly fast.

    A person needs to have faith in the person they are looking to employ so they want to see that in a bid - I've rarely had anyone contact me to clarify any points for instance.

    Being cheap and fast isn't necessarily the way to go.

    Have a look at some projects and see who you would employ if roles were reversed.

    freelancer.com is not a good website to start, It looks like a big jungle with no rules, Both providers and freelancers can scam each other if they want and freelancer.com doesnt do a shit about this
