Anyone got any pointers for seeking freelance work online. Other than PPH?
I don't know about others but I'd start with your local community first. It's infinitely easier to work for people with whom you have a connection with than random people over the internet who you don't. Unless you live in a ridiculously small village!
I'm not sure what PPH is but I would also avoid crow sourcing websites - where you compete against others for a project and only get paid if your work is rated as the best.
PPH = People Per Hour
Personally I started in my local area and now do work for people in the USA, Australia and Japan.
But thats just me
My village wouldn't even know what to do with my services... it's primarily farming out my way lol
Yeah. I use PPH selectively. Certainly don't get involved in creating work for free so a client can decide. Difficult not to lose it at people asking for that.
I do carry out work for local business. But the odd online job helps. If anyone hears of any good places to look, please shout.
