Has anyone had any luck with eLance?


I've just recently started here on HubPages and am beginning to see my earnings grow, but I am eager to branch out into other means of passive income. Anyone tried eLance or know any other sights that would provide a passive means of income?

    Elance seems to get a really bad wrap here on Hubpages, I'm not sure why. I've found jobs through them for 3 years and have never not been paid. It seems to me to be the most reliable of online venues for actually getting paid a reasonable sum.

    I see your points. I don't care about recognition, I just want money, and I definitely have the time. Starting a personal site is probably the best way, but it seems like a huge responsibility to do it right.

    Why do you have to spam?

    It seems like getting paid per assignment might not be so bad if the money and assignment are right. Do you have any personal experiences or actual figures you'd be willing to divulge?

    I just registered and it seem really competitive (10+ bids for most jobs). Not sure if it's worth my time to write proposals for a $50 writing gig. Is oDesk any better?
