Freelancing is one of the best ways to make money online. Many people are only working as a freelancer and earning their living. A handsome amount of money can easily be generated by working as a freelancer. Freelancers are self-employed and don’t have any boss. They work when they want and earn money. There is no need t work for a fixed amount of time daily and avoid any other activity during that period. One can easily work for a few hours and do whatever in the spare time. Everything is in control of the freelancer and no other people can command over it.
There are a lot of freelancing networks that are available online. Using them one can start an online freelancing career easily. However, one question that arises in every freelancer mind is which freelancing network should be chosen? It’s a little bit difficult question and answer are also different for different people.
In this article, I will cover up two famous freelancing networks. These are Fiverr and People per Hour. Now let’s have a look on each of them.
What are People per Hour?
It is an online freelancing network or you can say marketplace. It is basically a the United Kingdom based site and has a marketplace like structure on their website. On this site, people can work as a freelancer and get money by providing services. On the other hand, agencies and organizations looking for a temporary employee get their work done at a reasonable price. Hence, we can say they are offering services to both employee seekers and employers. The cost of each project is different and range from $10-$50 on average. It’s basically an hourly based site and most of the time the projects have one hour only. We have to complete it in an hour only.
Freelancers here can offer services in a lot of categories graphics design, website development, programming, photography, editing, writing, and even acting and filmmaking, etc. Therefore, almost all types of people can start their journey from this site.
What is Fiverr?
Fiverr is also an online freelancing marketplace. However, a more successful one than people per hour. Fiverr was introduced after people per hour, but they have progressed very quickly and left it behind. Now Fiverr is much more successful then people per hour. At Fiverr, people can provide services in terms of Gigs. There also millions of categories to choose from and provide services. Each service cost only $5 and people prefer using it as compared to other networks. Therefore, millions of job providers visit this site and post offers to freelancers.
Now the question is how can we do complex projects for just $5? Let me tell you that $5 is just the basic value of the gig or service. It can be increased to hundred or even a thousand dollars for a single order. Many people get 10-50 or even hundreds of new orders daily. You can make an estimate that how much effective this site is? People can easily earn a handsome living, just by using this single network.
Which one should you choose Fiverr or People per Hour?
I have tested both networks and worked as a freelancer. My suggestion is using fiverr as the first network. After joining fiverr people get an order in less than a day and even in an hour. On the other hand, people per hour are not that fast. It will take a few days to get the order from their network. Even some people don’t even get an order in a whole month. So they leave this site and even freelancing too. That’s why I always suggest using Fiverr. I hope after this article your thought will also be changed completely.
