General Guidelines for the Project Search
As an online freelancer, you’re going to spend many hours looking through project listings and search results. If you’re new to the process, it’s worth investing some time into figuring out the most efficient ways of doing so. This section will provide you with some guidelines and analysis to help you make the most of the project search process.
The first three topics deal with critical decisions you’ll need to make about how you want to search for projects on online freelancing sites, and the trade-offs involved in those decisions. The first discusses project search methods, focusing on the differences between broad and targeted searches. The second helps you understand the pros and cons of using a smaller or larger number of sites, and why you should always use more than one. The third describes why looking for projects frequently is beneficial, but also covers the costs associated with searching often.
The remaining two topics are intended to help you make the most of your time during the project search. They include a discussion of options for responding when you encounter illegal or invalid project listings, as well as suggestions for being efficient during the pre-bid process.
