Do you have any advice for people considering working via Elance? Every client that you work with will give you feedback.Your next clients will see that feedback and its a big deciding factor for them.
Even if you have to wait a while for the right project to come along, wait and take projects that you know you can do. But one project leads to two, two leads to four, four leads to eight and so on.Then make sure you do everything right and get great feedback. Take projects that you know you can do, and dont rush into applying for them all just because you want work. Just accept the slow start and let the work build, learning as much as you can on the way. If youre not winning projects, dont panic and start dropping your prices.
