    Did anyone ever get a freelance job at Elane or ifreelance?

    I became a member of these two websites, but I'm finding very hard to compete with super low rates. It seems like there are many buyers out there more interested in low rates than in good quality work. Where would be a good place to find good freelance work.

    Thanks!

        I'm looking for retouching jobs. I don't know of any freelance website that's specialized in photo retouching. Do you?

          I hope it's something for you.

          1. Do you considering making a website (your own?) it's one step to a freelance job.
          2. Post your work on youtube how you retouching (e.g. speed-retouching) wich means you forward the video very quickly perhaps from 8 hours to 4 minutes and post your URL of the website.

          These are major step that let people/company that you exist I hope you for your success. Patience is the key

              I'd highly recommend getting your own personal site other than Flickr. It really makes you appear more professional. Domain names from godaddy.com are on ly $9 a year, so you shouldn't let expense scare you, especially if you want to get any good freelance work. It will pay for itself many times over. If you don't know how to code, there is a plethora of templates available that are easy to work with. It doesn't have to be fancy. Just having your own goes a very long way. Just my $.02.

                  I decided to get my own personal website done. You guys convinced me it's the best thing to do right now! It will look more professional and I'll be proud of showing it around.

                  Hopefully it will pay for itself.

                  Great motivation! Thanks.

                    Re: Freelance Jobs

                    And that's because you didn't take a look into getafreelancer.com... Anyway, I got a work from iFreelance but only 1 in 6 months. I did some calculations about that kind of websites and guess what. iFreelance has 17K user just in graphic design, and that was about 9 months ago. iFreelance is a paid website, suppose all the members pay for 1 year basic account, I think it'¡s about 75 dollars, meaning 60usd is for gold membership for 6 months. 17Kx75usd=1.275.000,00 dollars per year and just in one category and basic accounts. Who really win the money?

                      You can become a RetouchPRO Patron for a donation of US$25 a year..
                      The primary reason for becoming a Patron is to help keep our lights on here. However, to say "thank you" for donating, the following benefits are offered:
                      A "Patron" tag under your name in every forum post
                      Larger Gallery space
                      Forum attachment size doubled
                      You won't see any banner ads in the forums

                      The Patron program is to support the website. It is not a subscription for RetouchPRO LIVE.

                          does freelance generally pay more than fulltime?

                          Hello
                          I have just moved to the North West of England (Liverpool) and would appreciate it if anybody would know of any contacts (agencies etc..) that I could approach for freelance retouching work. Travel is easy, so Manchester and even Leeds are within range.

                          Thanks in advance...
