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!

Special Circumstances and Considerations in Assessing Internet Freelancing Projects

Thousands of projects are posted on freelancing sites every week, and most of them can be assessed pretty well using the general guidelines I covered in the preceding sections of this chapter. However, there are also some special cases the pop up from time to time when reviewing projects. These often provide unique opportunities to gain clients and earn good money, but in my experience, also carry with them a disproportionate chance of problems.

In this section I’ll give you some advice on how to handle these projects, so you can decide if you want to pursue them, and if so, how to make the most of them. I start by discussing rush jobs and cleanup projects, both of which can be lucrative but also challenging. I give you some tips on how to deal with a project you find listed on more than one site, and how to deal with requests to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs). I talk about the special case of a project that asks for work that isn’t necessary, and conclude with a look at the controversial issue of pro bono freelancing projects.
