    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!

    And you may laugh. But I have just won a job from PPH 1 sided flyer £70

    Not that bad after all. Even minus the £15.00 fee.

    Exactly - if you've nothing on then what's the harm in bidding?

    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.
