    Great Forum ...

    Everybody knows about the Freelance websites but how many of you guys are acctually making money over
    there or have been working on such websites?

    For now I am working on GetaFreelancer.com.
    Although I have worked for over 1 year for Rentacoder.com website but for the past 9-10 months I get my projects from GetaFreelancer.com . I like the GAF one better cause projects are valued much higher than on RAC ( where some duds were offering $30 max for a complete website and so on ).

    Do you know any other good websites beside these 2 ?

    I eanrned about 5000-6000$ up untill now in just over 1 year ...and Im pretty ok with it, considering I haven't done much much work as I already have a normal job.

    love the screen name! :D

    i never really got into the freelance sites to much, as i was able to attract more clients than i time for it threw my web site. it seems to me that most people on such sites try to low ball and it's very hard to sort the good jobs out from the bad ones. also, with the amount of competition on the larger sites, it's hard to get your foot in the door. one of the largest and oldest sites of this sort is www.guru.com. i used to know whole bunch, but that's the only one i can think of off the top of my head now.

    I used to do a few things at GetAFreelancer.com, but the quality of the coders is way out of my league now, and they get paid a lot more, so not anymore.

    There is also this new freelance marketplace (see my sig) where you can find some web design projects and make some money. It's less popular so less competition :D
