Please Whitelist This Site?

I know everyone hates ads. But please understand that I am providing premium content for free that takes hundreds of hours of time to research and write. I don't want to go to a pay-only model like some sites, but when more and more people block ads, I end up working for free. And I have a family to support, just like you. :)

Please think about the value you get from this free site, and consider adding it to the whitelist for Adblock. To do so, just open the Adblock menu and select "Disable on freelancingguide.net". Or go to the Tools menu and select "Adblock Plus Preferences...". Then click "Add Filter..." at the bottom, and add this string: "@@||freelancingguide.net^$document". Then just click OK.

Thanks for your understanding!

PeoplePerHour
(Page 1 of 5)

PeoplePerHour (PPH) is a general freelancing marketplace based in the United Kingdom. It is a moderate-sized site that gets about 100 to 150 new project listings per day. Project quality is generally average to above average; the company screens listings, and there isn’t a high incidence of junk jobs. The site uses a fairly standard project model, with clients listing work, contractors bidding, and negotiations and payment taking place on the site. The site itself is professionally designed and reasonably easy to use.

One notable feature of the site is that clients can list projects not only using the standard fixed rate or hourly pay models, but also using compensation based on hourly payment plus pay for results (such as a commission based on sales.) On the downside, while the company provides an escrow service at no additional charge, it strangely only requires 20% of project value to be escrowed before work begins. The company also charges pretty high fees, including transaction percentage fees, costs for extra bids, and optional membership fees as well.

PPH is a relatively new site, and one that I do not have a lot of experience with. I only recently learned about it, probably because it started out as a regional site catering to the UK market. A large percentage of its clients and contractors are still British, but the site has been growing very quickly over the last two years, and expanding its appeal to a more global audience as it does so. It appears that the company is now making a push to become more active in the American market, and if successful, has the potential to join the ranks of the biggest names in the industry.
