Where do I go for work


#1
Just spending some time looking over the various sites for some new clients/work and I noticed People Per Hour. It seems that you can quote on work there, which seems a good idea when work is slow.

Does anyone else know of other sites similar that I can go to to get new clients.

People per hour is a waste of bloody time. You'll get undercut. No matter how cheap you are, you'll get undercut. Or asked to design a logo for 2p, for which 60 people will bid. If anyone's found it to be any different, let me know. The best way to get new biz- get a good portfolio together and go out and see people.

Agreed that the majority of the jobs are a waste of time, but if you're selective and only look for the few that have a fair budget then it's surprising what chances a good, well-written bid can get you.

To me, the ones with a fair budget are the ones who are realistic and aren't just looking for the cheapest option and, if you can bid fairly but also sell yourself well then I think those are also the ones who will be happy to pay slightly more than the lowest bids to form a working relationship with you.

Though yes, nine times out of ten they are a waste of time!

I will second Spark Creative on that. People Per Hour is not worth the effort. Tried it a couple of years ago.

But then again it was fairly new then. So who knows maybe it has gotten better since.

Also...

I am looking for someone to make it look like one of my friends is getting a lap dance from a stripper. It has to look legit! I am looking for someone that can make it look to the naked eye that this is a real picture. I am looking for someone with serious skills because i do not have them.
HAHAHAHAHA!
