If you are wondering how to get projects on PeoplePerHour, read this post and watch the video. You are in the right place.
Did you know that PeoplePerHour has more than 3 million+ freelancers collectively boasting of more than 9000+ skills?
Freelancers earned more than 150 million dollars with the top freelancers making $7000 per month (4,00,000 INR to 5,00,000 INR) on an average.
PeoplePerHour is one of those freelance job boards I highly recommend in my freelancing course (coming soon) and also as a part of my consultations.
Why Choose PeoplePerHour?
PeoplePerHour launched in 2007 (with just an idea). Today, it’s a trustworthy marketplace that millions of businesses (large and small) trust to hire skilled freelancers to help with projects of all kinds -- ranging from virtual assistance to accounting; from digital marketing to illustration and design.
More specifically, for us freelancers, here’s why you should choose PeoplePerHour
Little Less Crowded: Upwork happens to be really, really big. You can certainly be there (have a profile, get projects, succeed).
Nothing stops you from expanding your presence to a new marketplace now, does it? It’s a little less crowded on PeoplePerHour, the chances of you scoring a project are higher on PeoplePerHour, and more.
Escrow Protection: PeoplePerHour - just like Upwork -- provides you with payment protection. Before starting contracts, you’d normally ask for a deposit (100% of the project amount is highly recommended).
That deposit stays in an escrow account (managed by PeoplePerHour) to be paid out to you when you successfully complete projects. If you complete the project but the client goes incommunicado, the deposit is still paid out to you.
If you don’t deliver (on time, or not what the client expects), the escrow amount is paid back to the client.
Get your own clients: In case you have other clients you work with as a freelancer, you have the ability to bring your clients on to the PeoplePerHour network (you get an invite link). This way, you don’t have to create separate invoices, create freelancing contracts, and you can stop worrying about whether or not your clients will pay you on time (or pay you at all).
Bidding Process on PeoplePerHour Freelance Job Board
Like most other freelance job boards, thousands of projects are uploaded to PeoplePerhour and you can pick the projects that best fit for you.
Unlike what most people think, though, it's not easy.
It certainly looks and feels easy; it's not.
To successfully get projects on PeoplePerHour, you'd need to:
Setup a complete profile on PeoplePerhour
Have your freelancing portfolio ready (to be shared)
Create customized proposals for any of the projects you select. These proposals should address client needs directly.
The proposals must be written in a way that's more like "Salesmanship in Print". You have to convince the client that you are the best freelancer for the project.
List out itemized deliveries that you'd execute (along with the price and time for each).
