    So you believe that only people from the developing countries will get this kind of benefit? I mean earning through freelancing? I think 1k/month for people in the developing countries already means a lot to them but this just means that less work is available for westerners.

    No, that's the opposite of what I meant. There are freelancers all around the world. There's never a shortage in demand of quality work.

    Great discussion!! It's true that the prices they are paying are sometimes ridiculus! It's like asking you to do it for free. I had the bumped into the same situation when i started freelancing. I began by making profiles in several freelance bidding sites and the case was the same in all. Freelancers from countries with lower GDP or more experienced freelancers won all the projects i was intrested in. The one that made the difference for me was Peopleperhour.com, the one i still use to work. Peopleperhour is a bit different cause most of the clients and sellers are from UK,Europe and US, so you can actually get work and get paid for it. Also, i started with Hourlies, Peopleperhour's new service. With Hourlies, you can decide what service you are offering, when can you deliver and at what price you are doing it.

    I tried a freelance writing. If you have decent skills you can get not bad money at this field.

    Thanks Miller76, do you care to expand on what makes different desired writing skills and what is your definition of not bad money (In general not your personal terms)?

    hi TomB! I agreed the buyer are not giving the money that they should be given to us, to me actually they post the jobs for poor country people like India not for US people because they can't people in us for these projects that's why they hire only Indian and Pakistani people to give project. The link of elance you shared in this post, If you notice there are 7 proposals and all of them from inida.

    I personally know some professional web developers and webmasters who work freelance full time. They were hired at this certain site that was able to give them full time work over the web. As far as I know, they are still making good money even though they are working remotely. I actually like it that way than it is for them to get hired on those contract only sites where they just bid to get some work.

    I think it's just a matter of staying on top of the competition and being true to the profile you build. Your reputation builds up when you continue to make excellent work.
