Another successful earning sheet

Hello guys,
This is my latest pay sheet. Might not be much for some people. But for me it is a big sum. I live in a Asian country and the currency rate for US$ s is around 140. So multiple this amount in 140 and see the result.


And I didn't spent a cent while earning this amount. The only skill I have as a freelancer is writing. Anyway my writing skills are not the best. My English has many short comings. So considering these facts I can be totally proud of what I earn.

For those who have more talents the earning possibilities with freelancer is limitless.

If you are interested in freelancing and new their please don't forget to visit their "contests" section. Anyone can join these and these are pre-paid. So the winner always gets paid. This section is usually good for people with graphic designing skills, programmers and web site developers. Every day new projects are added. While trying to win bids try to win contests as well.

To go to contests section,

Go to freelancer - go to "brows projects"- go to "brows contests".

AdSense alternative

Guys! I found a very good alternative for Adsense. I tried to add AdSense to this site several time. Eventually it ended up with  a refusal. Ever since I tried several advertising alternatives. The best alternative I found so far is Chitika. They are good; pay good money and easy to install. Well if you have some kind of a blog or website and Adsense not working for you I suggest you to try Chitika. I use it as a supportive incoming source.

Tips for New Freelancers

The following article is originally published in FREELANCER.COM. I though this could be useful for people who are willing to enter into this field.

Tips for New Freelancers

Freelance contracting is becoming increasingly popular in today’s society, and with good reason. With economic crises and unstable job markets worldwide, it makes sense to use your skills and talents to build a business of your own. Freelancing offers many advantages for motivated individuals, including such perks as setting your own hours and days off. On the other hand, there are a number of ways things can go very wrong. It’s important to know the risks and how to avoid them. There are also a number of things you can do to increase the odds of your success.

First of all, using to search for and obtain work in your field(s) is, of course, a step in the right direction. By providing the marketplace for service providers and prospective employers around the globe, we reduce the time and costs involved in soliciting work for your business.

There are several things new freelancers should consider carefully, from the beginning of the bidding process to delivering the final product. By using the tools provides wisely, service providers can protect their interests and build a reputation for themselves quickly.

No matter what type of project, always look at the employer’s profile and feedback (if any exists). While the profile information may be sketchy and there’s no guarantee of accuracy, experienced service buyers often provide enough profile information to let a freelancer know who he or she is dealing with. Likewise, the lack of profile information may indicate either a new service buyer or one with something to hide. Feedback, if available, is indispensable in providing an overview of how an employer has dealt with past contractors. It pays to know as much as possible about an employer before you consider entering into a contract.

Once you’ve decided to bid on a project, follow the steps outlined in our article titled “10 Tips for Writing an Effective Proposal”. Using these guidelines will help increase your chances of being hired. During the bidding process, use the Project Clarification Board as necessary to be sure you and the employer both understand exactly what will be provided, when and how much pay you expect.

Before accepting a project award, be sure to go over the project details again carefully. If there are possible issues, contact the employer to resolve these before you commit to the project. Better to pass up a job than to accept it with too many unknowns.

Depending on the size of the project, you may want to work out milestone payments as portions of the project are completed. Most employers will agree to this on larger projects. It’s also not unusual for freelancers to ask for an up-front payment on large-scale projects, but many employers will be hesitant to do this for contractors without feedback. Remember that there are risks on both sides of a freelance contract. Freelancers and employers alike should consider using's Milestone Payment service, for the protection of both parties.

Finally, gaining positive feedback is one way to build your reputation quickly. Most employers will be happy to provide good feedback for a service provider after a successful project, but it’s important to remember that you must be paid through in order to receive feedback.

Good luck and happy freelancing!
