Freelancer's Dilema: Elance, Rentacoder or some other alternative?
Posted on 2006-06-20
I used to be a freelancer on Rentacoder a few years ago. I was doing web development and web programming related projects on RAC while pursuing my college degree. It was all good, PHP was on the rise and projects were easy to find.
Now it has been three years down the line and I am in a position to restart the same. However I am ulling at something bigger. I really don't want to be posting 50 projects bids a day and getting 400-500$ projects. Maybe I am ready for bigger fish.
Remember, at this stage I am no longer a college student, I run an upcoming web development company and our network has quite a few successful websites.
Would you recommend me purchasing an Elance subscription? Will I get profitable enough business on Elance that justifies the spending? Is it worth it?
Or, Rent A Coder and Elance aside, is there a third or fourth alternative for me to look into?
Thanks in advance. Regards.
