I just hired someone in Rumania to prepare an opt-in webpage and sales letter. I had the basic documents and graphics but have no clue how to put them together. I set up my own Auto Responder on AWeber so gave him the code for that part, along with the code for the Paypal button. He did everything else and the site is now live and building a mailing list.
You post a description of the work to be done then freelances tender a quote with information on why you should choose them. You can read previous feedback and how much they have earned via Elance. Sometimes new freelances will offer introductory rates while they build up a reputation.
Once you have chosen the person for the task you pre-pay the full amount agreed into an Escrow account. You can pay via Paypal or a credit card. Only once the task is complete to your satisfaction will you release the funds.
So, if like me, PHP, Joomla, My SQL, Drupal et al are complete Chinese to you, or you need someone to help you achieve one of many tasks, just go to Elance.
If you are a freelance offering one of many skills needed by others, you can also register as a provider on the site. Just click on the banner to register:
This could be an excellent source of new income.
