What Freelance Site Works Best For Someone That Is In The UK?

Alright Warriors

I have been using Odesk for the past two weeks just to get a little bit more money in however I have noticed that people are not offering a great deal of pay in dollars which when converted to the British Pound is hardly nothing at all. I.e someone wants me to input 10K of words into a document for $100 which works at TO BE £63 which isnt really worth it due to the amount of work involve. Maybe if I was in a different country where the dollar was so strong but no in England..

    I haven't done any work through them.. I've hired people from there and they've always been very professional.

    I see common trend on freelance sites, which might help you out..

    Because newcomers with no reputation find it hard to get gigs.. (understandable, I wouldn't take a risk and hire someone who didn't have solid feedback), I've seen a few offering their services at a very low rate to begin with.. limiting the discount to the first 10 orders.

    Seems like a good way to build a reputation there.

    Good luck.

    http://www.elance.com/ works best in my opinion for those from US, UK and Canada.

    But as as freelancer you cannot compete with those from India, where the average monthly income is $200, so they are more than willing to put 10k of words for $100.

    You'll find that most outsourcing sites use US dollars as the default currency. US dollars has been the online default currency pretty much from the start of commercial internet tbh.
