I've been testing out new earning ventures
We are a week into the new year and the only resolution I made I, of course, have already broken. That simple resolution was to write at least once a day here, that didn't happen but hey... what can you do?
I wanted to share another money earning site with you guys though. It is called PeoplePerHour, and you might have heard of it before.
I have known about it for ages now but never gave it a chance. Why? It reminded me too much of ELance, Freelancer and the like, and while there isn't nothing wrong with them I never had any luck there. I never had high enough of a rating or enough experience on the site, and there always seemed to be someone from an Asian country (don't bite my head off now) willing to do the job for pennies.
I decided to give this a go the other day, and I don't want to jinx it but I am pleased at the moment. So far in the past 3 days I have earned £22.00 for about 2 hours worth of work total.
I did two jobs, first I completed a rewrite project for one client on the 4th and then today I did some photo editing for another. I actually got flustered today and entered the wrong price for the editing work ($10.00) and requested less money then I intended to but I felt bad changing it, the work was already done, it was my mistake and at £7.00 for about 50 min of work it still paid above the national minimum wage for the UK.
I love the layout and the feel of the site, it's all seamless and very easy to understand and get into.
I like that you can't under bid like crazy on a project. So for instance a job that is going for say $100 if you try to say you will do it for $20.00 it won't let you on account of it not being fair. This is a big problem on other websites, people working for dirt cheap.
I like that they work on letting you know which projects might be of interest based on your profile. They send me invites to be the first to bid on certain projects based on my skills. They try to help you get your feet wet and help you get going.
They have extensive history of Invoices, Payments, Withdrawals and other statements.
Now cons, if they can be that. They pay to....... shoot I forget if its JUST to Paypal or if I chose Paypal out of a few other options. Sorry!
They charge a fee per project (all those sites do) which is 15% for the first £175 that you earn in each month, after which it drops down to 3.5%. This restarts each month.
There may or may not be withdrawal fees, depending on the method you use.
