How People Per Hour Has Shaped My Freelance Career

Looking back at this blog it feels like forever since I had time to do a post- and it actually has been a while- oops, but i’ve been super busy working on so amazing new projects which is what i’m talking about through this blog.

For the last few months I have been working freelance through website People Per Hour. When I first began, work came in slowly but it soon picked up and not i’m doing multiple projects every week- sometimes multiple projects daily. It’s the perfect tool for those of you who want to earn yourselves a few extra pounds, or want to gain experience in areas you may not have much in.

In the last month alone I have rewritten a full website for a company who hire photo booths, done some research on cocktail bars (which was so much fun to do) and created content for sites from a 50’s fashion site, a phone app and yacht sailing. Yes it’s that diverse. And those projects aren’t all, I have lots of exciting stuff in the pipe lines too.

It is a site I would highly recommend using even if it’s just to earn some extra money before your summer holiday. When you sign up you create a profile and put details in about what sorts of jobs you would like to i.e. data entry, research, admin, design, blogging, article writing etc and then you can start applying for jobs. Browsing through yes there are a lot where companies/ people want hundreds of articles for crap money, but hidden in amongst the rubbish are some great finds and things i’ve highly enjoyed being a part of.

You can also create what they call ‘an hourlie’ which means a service you can provide which people buy for example ‘Provide a 500 word piece of SEO optimized content on any topic’. You set a price and people buy it from you and send the information you require, simple.

Out of all the freelance sites i’ve tried to use People Per Hour is by far the best.

Have you tried working freelance or are you ensure what to do next?

      I tend to find that it entirely depends on what the buyer wants, if they want quality then they'll usually be prepared to pay a little more for quality. I found you have to do a couple of articles at a lower rate than you would perhaps usually to build up your ratings to then be able to go for bigger things.

    I haven't tried People Per Hour yet, but had a look once at the projects available. Perhaps I should have another look and consider x

      It's worth it if you're looking for ongoing stuff, it's easier to work a lot on there for a few months than go on for odd jobs every now and then.

      Thanks 🙂 It's such a good way or doing some additional work on top of a full time job. Plus who can turn down extra money? 🙂
