Things to Know Before Using Freelance Bidding Sites

things-to-know-before-using-freelance-bidding-sites

I used freelance bidding sites a few times over the past 15 years. Freelance writing is a competitive, feast or famine career choice, and auction sites can look attractive during those “famine” periods.  To be honest, I’ve never had much success with these types of sites.

We take our jobs serious and treat each client in a professional manner. We don’t have the luxury of direct deposit every Friday. If we don’t provide you with the finished product, we don’t get paid. Handing in a finished product doesn’t guarantee we’re getting a check as promised, either.

It gave me a good idea of what to expect when launching my own business.

One important lesson learned upon becoming a freelance writer is how much work it entails. There’s always a need for new clients and new projects.
