hey all, I am just wondering if freelancer.com is worth it? Before I accept a project offered to me, I would like to know if the time and effort are worth the pay? Does anyone have any up to date info? thanks
While having no firsthand experience, I found this informative answer. Hopefully, others will respond.

Thanks alot website examiner! Your information was really helpful. I appreciate it! Take care,
Megs, you are welcome. It's a tough environment out there, sounds like.
Megs, I'm sure Sufidreamer has reviewed the freelance sites somewhere but I couldn't put my finger on it. However if you're interested in freelance writing, he has a whole series of articles that would be very helpful:

well, i kind of came to my own conclusion in a matter of minutes. I bid on a project (underbid actually) and received the project right away. But the problem was that it was unreasonable what she was asking of me. I had to write an article on a subject, and then rewrite it 19 times using slightly modified, but the same keywords. On such a narrow subject, it was impossible to write those articles differently 19 times. Definitley not worth the hassle. thanks for the responses guys! i appreciate it.
With thousands of open jobs your experience with one is probably not the best way to judge an entire site/system?
With freelancer if you are a native english writer with writing skills , never underbid and look for more expensive jobs. On the low paying/low quality qigs you are competing with article mills / article spinners / and people who may have a much cheaper cost of living than you.
so Aim high!
Hi Megs, there are a lot of sites like freelancer.com that are really good. you can try odesk or elance.
I've used freelancer, but to be honest the pay is the pits. I've found a good employer on there and do occasional work for her, other than that I don't touch them now. Bids are waaaaaay too low!
Izzy - if you are still interested in doing some freelance work but the low pay has put you off, you could try freelancer.co.uk. The pay is in line with UK levels at about £10-£15 per hour or more, but because the site is smaller there are less jobs available. Still one good thing about it is I've got a few jobs just from people reading my profile there and haven't needed to bid.
Thats a good point
I occasionally buy from such sites and I usually try and hire the good respondents outside of the site and keep them on as outsourcers/assistants
You have to be careful about that also - because then you lose your guaranteed payment - I can afford to pay more if I dont have to give a percentage to the site
Freelancer constantly try to up-sell you, and the jobs there pay a pittance. Even for a job aggregating site it is bad. I get much better returns using my time to search for open calls.

Greetings my dear fellows!I wanted to know that, if I write an article on different fun facts about human body and psychology, animals, and geography, what category should I choose? and then if I want to submit it to a niche site, which site will be suitable for it?

I have just found this new writing site, that after spending nearly an hour taking a test to prove my worthiness! I was wondering if it was worth it! they pay you about 2 dollars each article if it is 300 words, but of course you have to write it about 3 times! is it worth it? thanks
