It seems like a really interesting place but to be honest I'm a little intemidated by the whole thing. Everything seems to move so fast and I know I'm a fantastic writer but I'm never sure what exactly the job offer wants. I think it could be a great market to get into and I'd love to do it but I don't like to just jump into anything. Has anyone here ever freelanced like this? What was your experience like when doing so? Some of the money looks decent. Thanks a lot.

I am a member of that site....have been for several years...but i dont use it much because it is kind of daunting...and it is really hard to get chosen for a job unless you are one of the few who has a high rating because they have already done a lot of jobs....of course there is an option to pay for premium and get better exposure but i havent done that so cant say wether it is any better.... Just bid on a few jobs at first and see if you get a bite....once you get a couple jobs and finish them you will be more comfortable with it all.... Those few that get their bids accepted all the time do seem to make decent money!

I've been with that site for 1 year now and so far i've been paid many times there. It's just matter of patience, hardwork and communication. So far in my 1 year there i have 2 clients already whom until now im working with. But of course you still have to be careful coz' there are still scams there. You have to be vigilant enough to identify genuine to scam.

I was going to try it once but than i decided against it because i was afraid i might get scammed it's just better to find a more local and reputable software development firm. the extra money is well worth the ease of heart and the more qualified developers.
