Most of the jobs are fixed price. The price of the online jobs are ranging from $500 to $1500 depends on the type of job and tasks given. If you get a large project, it could be even higher price. So, if you feel that the price is right, you can submit you proposal. Once you get the job, you must complete it and get paid. That is easy right? But you need to be very good at the technical part of the job to complete the job.

You can also set your search preference to hourly rate. You will be able to get jobs that pays you based on per hour basis. Hourly rate are ranging from $10 to $50 per hour. Normally, jobs that are hourly rate requires you to complete your job in preset hours. If you could not complete it, your reputation might not be good because employer can rate your profile in Elance.

There are hundreds and thousands of jobs in Elance. Believe it or not? Some people are hiring Bloggers to write for their blogs and paying them good hourly rate as well. Are you interested?

oDesk: Global Online Jobs Marketplace

oDesk is another popular freelance site. Basically, oDesk works almost identical to Elance. You can look for job, check the price of the jobs (fixed or hourly rate) and get paid after completion.

oDesk also has more than thousands of jobs awaiting people to compete. In oDesk, you will have to submit proposal and submit examples of your work. If you are applying for jobs to write website contents, you might need to submit example of your articles to employers. If you are good, they will give you the job.

The price range of jobs in oDesk is ranging from $10 to $1500 for fixed rate job while $10 to $50 for hourly jobs. Some of the jobs are quite competitive. So, I would recommend you to have very specialized skills to apply for jobs in oDesk so that the competitions are lower.

Freelancer.com: Work Freelance? Try Freelancer.com

Freelancer is another popular freelance employment and online jobs site. When I found this site "Freelancer.com", the first thought that comes into my mind is "Get a Free Mitsubishi Lancer". I thought is was a site that give away Mitsubishi Lancer. (LOL, that is too good to be true. :)). After browsing through the site, I finally understand what Freelancer.com does.

This site is highly reputable. If you can get jobs in Freelancer.com then you have very high possibilities to get jobs on other freelance sites as well. My advice for you is to start accepting jobs that are small and lower pay, then slowly improve your skill and move on to get bigger projects that are high paying.

As you work more and improve your skills, you will earn more money by working freelance. Work from home will be easier for you as you progress further and gain more experience.
