Sell Your Skills Online

Today’s post will be brief. You can blame Super Smash Brothers Brawl.

It’s nice to be able to charge $50-$100 an hour for my server administration skills. Unfortunately, there’s a big difference between being able to charge that much and actually charging that much. I actually have to find clients before I can start counting all of that money.

Luckily for me, I found Get a Freelancer. After signing up and browsing through the available offers, I’m pretty impressed. I check it on a daily basis now, always keeping my eyes open for jobs that I’d be able to preform. It’s a pretty decent system: Employers create jobs that they want done, file it under one of their several dozen categories, and set a budget range and due date. Freelancers find the job, bid on a price and completion time, and wait. There are job categories for nearly every online job you can think of, and projects range in budget from $25 to $25,000.

So, if you’re good at coding, web design, Photoshop, SEO, marketing, writing, or pretty much anything else that can be done online, head over and take a look (remember, the service is free for people looking for jobs). I’ve already bid on several available opportunities, so I’m going to sit back and wait (and play Smash Bros.). Good luck bidding against the hordes of overseas workers who can do it cheaper, faster, and better than you can.

My contest for five free somethings is still going. Go enter!
