Recently I have seen lots of activities in the earning money from home kind of posts at Go4Expert Forum. After leaving the Job from Lexmark India I have been working on my forums and website and also doing lot of freelancing and I would share all my experience here.
If you search Google for freelance work you would approximately get 13,100,000 and I am sure there are very few of them which are genuine. I have experimented lots of them like adtyping jobs and many other over past few years and here I have selected few of the best freelance "work to earn money" sites for getting freelancing work.
This is one of the best Freelance site where you can find some really good work and it has interface which is very simple and easy to use. Elance is not totally free but then you can start without giving any money and get the feel about the site. Free users would get very limited connects ( which is needed to bid on project ) and so for new users at times it takes more time for bid to convert because of no history.
I would suggest you to take the tour of how Elance work for provider. It would make your understanding clear for how elance works. See my profile at elance to satisfy yourself. I am still available for Freelancing as well if you want to hire me. 😀 and you can also go through the open jobs and projects in
One of the best website for buyers looking for cheap work but not good for freelancers because you may be getting some cents per hour if not less. See my profile which is quite old but can see that you can get work and earn money freelancing.
For me the next best site after Elance for Freelancing is oDesk. The reason I prefer oDesk over other is because it was (and is) one of the top few sites for finding long term clients.
