There are countless numbers of jobs that are continually being outsourced by individuals and organisations and posted on freelance marketplaces such as oDesk, Elance and Freelancer.com just to name a few. The good thing about a lot of these short term projects is that you can work on them from the comfort of your own home and for anyone from anywhere in the world.
So many of us have expertise and knowledge that we don’t make full use of and these can range from web design, graphic design, writing, mobile app development, marketing, social media and the list goes on and on. More often than not, these areas may be something that you have taken up as a hobby and enjoy doing and they could be turned into an income stream. The thing is, there are a lot of people out there in the world who are looking for people with certain areas of expertise to help them complete projects they are working on.
In this day in age, finding freelance work is not that difficult as you can simply go to marketplaces such as those mentioned above and search for something suitable. That may not be ideal for everyone as one marketplace may not suit your needs as well as another. DoNanza is the perfect solution for people who want to be able to search for jobs available across the web. They are in a nutshell, a site that aggregates freelance projects from marketplaces and crowdsourcing platforms across the web. This increases the chances of you finding something that suits your needs without having to visit multiple sites.
They also have a publisher program that allows users to add a widget or project board to their site and earn money. Publishers are paid when users bid or work on projects. Publishers are also paid when employers post projects directly on their board. Payments are sent out monthly via cheque or PayPal.
Here is an example of a project board – Ninety Nine Ways Job Board
Freelancing is something that you should look into if you are out to make a little extra money or even take up full time. This is something that is open to anyone and everyone, the only requirement is that you are knowledgeable on whatever it is someone may need work on and that you can deliver!
