Over the past several years Internet has become a powerful tool for making money in my spare time. I have been testing various “get paid to” opportunities in the last several years and shared them in this blog. The first earning possibility, which worked out for me was freelancing and crowdsourcing. Freelancers are independent workers, which can find jobs on various job boards and use their skills to earn money online.
Freelancing is one of the most popular Internet business means because thousands of small business owners are trying to outsource their work, find qualified staff on the web and receive quality results fast.
In order to start providing your freelance services online you need to figure out what services you can provide and how much experience you have. The most popular jobs for freelancers include: web design (website, logo, template design jobs), programming and coding, copywriting (writing articles, reviews, paid forum posting), search engine optimization (on-site optimization, social media optimization), marketing and much more.
Freelancer.com is a website, where thousands of small business owners list services and jobs they need to accomplish. You can visit this website, browse available jobs and bid for items. If the employer likes your profile (before bidding on projects you are required to complete the registration process, provide some examples of your work or showcase your portfolio items) he/she will let you work on this project and set the pay for completed work.
While completing the order you will be able to stay in touch with the employer, ask questions and figure out his/her needs. With Freelancer.com the odds of getting scammed are minimal, this website has a buyer protection system, which charges the employer before you start working and passes the money to you, as soon as the project is completed.
Currently freelancers can withdraw their funds with the help of numerous payment methods, which include Paypal, Moneybookers, a debit card and even a wire transfer. Freelancer.com is free to register but there are some fees, which are to be deducted for every job you complete (you don’t have to pay anything to register and bid on items but you are charged, when you earn money with them, 10% is the fee amount).
Depending on your skills, you can easily become a freelancer and earn money online in your spare time. If you don’t have enough experience to start working on this freelance job boards, let me show some alternatives you can use:
Fiverr.com – is a cool website, where you can list your freelance service and find clients for your work.
