It’s the end of another week. I can’t believe I just have another week left in my series for options for freelance writers to find work! I also can’t believe there are only 10 more days of September!
Since it’s the end of another week, you know it means a weekly roundup. This week I focused on micro-job and bidding sites for freelance writers. While many aren’t for me, they could be perfect for those looking to start out or those who just want to build a portfolio of work.
Here’s the roundup:
Monday: Is Fiverr a Good Site for Freelance Writers?
Monday was a day for a micro-job site called Fiverr. This is one of the most popular sites for micro-jobs, but it does have its limitations. I’ve been on the site for over three years now, and noticed the pros and cons personally. This is my chance to share my experiences with you.
Want to catch up on Fiverr? Here’s where you can do just that.
Tuesday: Bidding for Jobs at Freelancer.com
Is Freelancer.com worth your time? Remember I said this week was about micro-job and bidding sites for freelance writers, and Tuesday I went to one of the most popular bidding sites out there. I’ve shared my positive and negative experiences on the site, and will hopefully help you decide whether it’s worth it for you.
Need some help deciding? Here’s my post about Freelancer.com
Wednesday: Finding Freelance Writing Jobs at Elance
I stuck with the bidding sites on Wednesday and looked into Elance. It’s one site that I don’t have a lot of experience on, but enough to get an idea of whether it’s worth my time. Since I don’t have that much experience, I shared the experience of another user who did manage to make a lot of money with writing jobs on the site.
Here’s the post to decide whether Elance is right for you.
Thursday: Using Fivesquids to Make Money Writing Online
For Thursday’s post in the micro-job and bidding sites series, I went back to the micro-job sites. Fivesquids is one of the lesser known sites, but is really a UK version of Fiverr. It may not be as well-known, but that doesn’t stop people from finding it in a search online.
This is my review of Fivesquids.
Friday: Can You Make Money Bidding for Writing Jobs at Guru
Guru may be one of the lesser known bidding sites online, but it does have some positives. One thing that I prefer about this site is the SafePay option; something that many sites are now introducing. While my experience has been minimal, I’ve shared it to help you decide whether Guru is a bidding site for your freelance writing needs.
Check out the post on Guru here.
Saturday: Is PeoplePerHour Worth Your Time as a Freelance Writer?
There are plenty of micro-job and bidding sites out there, but not many that offer both in one. PeoplePerHour has a section for you to create “hourlies,” which are similar to Fiverr’s gigs. It also has a section for posting and bidding on jobs. As part of my post, I shared the tips from someone else to help you make money on the site if you decide it’s worth your time as a freelance writer.
Here’s my post about PeoplePerHour for freelance writing.
I hope you enjoyed the week on micro-job and bidding sites for your freelance writing needs. Hopefully you took something away from the posts, even if it was to stay away from them!
Next week I’m not quite looking into individual sites. I’m looking into options as a whole and will cover content mills, writing for magazines and even writing on your own blog. Hopefully the week will help you find a method of finding work and earning money as a freelance writer that works just for you.
