Not all projects are lucrative on Freelance sites. Data Entry projects are the most competitive but the pay is pitiable. Some employers pay as little as 50 cents per hour in some of these fields. Talk about obscene exploitation!
However some categories that require great skill pay very well. Most of the following categories pay between $10-40 dollars an hour.
1. Web design
2. Multi-media design (Logo and animation)
4. Financial planning
Average pay can be made in marketing and sales. This is because the results normally determine pay.
