How to get freelance job on Internet?

You type "work online" on Google, you will see a million results offering you jobs to work from home and earnings in thousands of dollars. You start thinking, oh God, is making money so absolutely not. Whatever ads you see on Google, I think 99% of them are just good for nothing. Well, I don't say that all these are scams but they typically work on the same idea. You pay a few dollars to them and they will give you some links to doing online survey or online data entry or join one of the millions referral programs on Internet, refer another people like you, then he will refer another, and thus making a chain and ultimately earning thousand of dollars. Sounds complicated and simple at the same time. Well, many of the Internet marketers have been making great moolah by using this marketing technique and this in fact is one of the most successfully tested Internet formula. If you have the patience and zeal to work on this concept, rest assured you can succeed if not in days or months than in years.

The other and in fact more tried and tested concept is to do freelancing jobs on Internet. Here, the benefit is you can do freelancing jobs according to your skill sets. It's not like you don't know the ABCD of marketing, and you have just entered the ruthless world of Internet marketing by paying a few dollars but now you don't know what to do, so it is always better not to do something you don't know anything. Here, you can opt for doing freelancing jobs on Internet. The biggest provider of online freelancing jobs is They offer both basic or free service as well as paid service. If you opt for free service, you will have the limited option that is you can send only 3 proposals to the prospective employers and so you have to be careful bidding for jobs. You should bid for only those jobs that you feel really confident about and once you have submitted your proposal, just cross your fingers and hope for the best. The other provider is, which of course is a paid affair. You will have to pay about 40 dollars per month to avail of their services. So, if you are a beginner, I think first give Elance a try and see how it goes and then once you have made some penny, you can use those pennies to get another job and so on.

So, best of luck to all the freelancers.
