Is It Worth It Trying Upwork (Elance) And Freelancer.com?
Here’s the question:
“Is it really worth trying Elance and Freelancer.com? I am a web developer from Australia. I joined Elance few months ago and Freelancer.com a week ago. I have been trying Elance for months and have been totally unsuccessful at winning bids.”
“There are a few things I have noticed. I am always competing against the cheap rates from India and other countries that I find it impossible to beat. There are people placing bids with /hr and clients wanting high-quality professional websites for under 0, which I find absolutely impossible to deliver. There are higher budget ads as well but I think majority of the projects have very low budget. Is Elance really only good for people from countries that can work on lower rate? How can I improve my chances of winning a bid?”
