  6. says

    Crowdsourcing sites are the worst, 100 people do the work and only one gets paid, that might be OK for someone who designs for a hobby, but not for someone who is a professional. I have never used fiver but last time I looked there were some crazy things being asked for for $5. And I don’t mean crazy like odd, I mean like asking for several hours work and paying $5 for it. Seems like exploitation of poor countries or desperate people.

    I’m surpriseddo not have on this post. They fixed budgets so they avoid bidding wars and people only do work they get paid for. It’s a different model but it has been working well since 2006. Over $20 million in projects posted over the past 5 years.

    Hey there, good overview of freelancing sites. Another costfree opportunity is – an IT project platform where freelancers and recruiters find eachother online. Within free membership freelancers can create a freelancer profil and apply on job openings and vacant projects for free. Also nice to know: there are no comission fees. Maybe anyone will check it, I’m working really successful with it.

  13. says

    I’m surprised that isn’t on the top of that list. It kills your #1 selection there. The same company (Ionicware Inc) also has and now – might want to add those.
