Web Sites for Freelancers - opinions

By road-dog ·
I'm trying word this so that it doesn't turn into a commercial...

Has anyone an opinion about Web sites/services connecting freelancers with projects? I'd like to know good & bad experiences, are they worth it, has your company posted a gig, how did it turn out? Did the bids go so low that the freelancer had no hope of completing the project in the black?

I'm also exploring the option of using subcontractors to farm out portions of projects when geography is an issue or if I ever bite offmore than I can chew.

Not worth it

by jost In reply to Web Sites for Freelancers ...

I have found those things to be a waste. Many of the jobs are very small or not well defined and the bidders are very very cheap.

Just one mans opinion.

helper?

by Rev. Ned In reply to Web Sites for Freelancers ...

I'm not a frelancer or sub-contractor, just a guy on the change due to an injury. Two and a half years of tweaking my puters and learning apps, and looking at a few more months of it. So, if you need some one to send the overflow to, I'll do it for the experience, and a little to buy parts with.

Elance Services

by edmondsh In reply to Web Sites for Freelancers ...

My company is currently using Elance.com for a logo design. We are extremely happy with the first three revisions. This guy is extremely talented and the #1 bidder on elance. I have also hired my copywriter through elance and with the degrees andeducation this girl has I can't believe what she is charging me. So, in answer to your question, yes, it is a great service just review their CV and portfolio as if you were hiring an employee...because I plan on using my two "finds" for the long haul whenever I need them.
