ODESK
« on: April 23, 2012, 06:49:22 PM »
Sino sino d2 ang mga part timers or full -timers sa ODESK?

I started on oDesk a few weeks ago, and was wondering who else here were odeskers? it would be nice to discuss which jobs are worth taking, and which buyers are the most generous. For those who don't know what oDesk is, its basically a place for people to get jobs. Eto po yung online Website na nag ououtsource ng contractors....It's great for students, high schoolers or undergrads, or whoever is familiar with having long unproductive breaks in between classes. good for stay at home moms/dads too. anyway, yeah, if your interested click the banner below  you can find commenting jobs, graphic arts jobs, writing jobs, data entry jobs, EVERY AND ANY JOB THAT CAN BE DONE ONLINE. it was confusing at first but totally worth it. let me know what you guys think.

sa mga members na ... Kamusta na ang business natin don? Maganda ba ang prospects/projects nyo? Kumikita na ba kayo don?

Mukha ngang promising ang ODESK...

I just want to share my good experience with oDesk. About 10 months  ago  I started working on oDesk. I started doing menial tasks such copy and paste jobs then crossed over to back link building,SEO and web development. October last year I was hired by an employer and he came to love what I was doing to his business which is dealing with online publishing and affiliate promotion. To make it short 3 months ago he offered me to be his business partner and I accepted it. I am now earning more than I could dream of. My simple advice to the people who are thinking twice to working on oDesk  - go for it! Don't waste your time with any other make money online stuffs which is, in my opinion, many are plain scams.  oDesk is the REAL make money online

I got this from odesk newsletter, some tips to get the job

* Your profile picture is working against you. Face up to your shortcomings: If your picture is blurry, grainy, too sour-faced or too "y," you're driving away prospective employers.
* Your language skills hold you back. Whether you're communicating in your first language or your third, you need to make sure that your grammar and spelling are solid. Use spell-check, and read our full post for a helpful link to common grammar mistakes.
* Your rates are wrong. If you're charging too much, you're driving clients away. If you charge too little, they won't have faith in your skills. We'll show you information that will help you set your rate right.
* You're seeking the wrong jobs. Do you have a portfolio and resume that show you can handle the jobs you're seeking? Are you translating your skills into the right job opportunities, and do your profiles and cover letters tell that story?

You already know that making it as a freelance provider is more than just putting yourself out there, but sometimes you can lose track of some key details.

share ko lang experience ko sa odesk...

dba lahat naman tayo gusto magkawork ng maayos para maachieve ang sinasabi nilang financial independence ... kaya lang minsan napapansin ko... parang sa odesk sa kagustuhang makuha ng buyer talagang to the max pinapababa yung rate nung ibang pinoy, pero kung tutuusin pag talagang i-analyze mo... in a long run tayong mga providers din ang talo sa ganyan. dati akala ko yung mga Foreign providers sa ibang bansa lang ang gumagawa nyan pero like yung mga taga india or arabo yung mga name, when i discovered nung tinignan ko yung mga na hired na providers na sobrang baba ng mga bid halos lahat pinoy. yung nangyari tuloy ngayon, yung buyers na yung nag rarate ng less than $1 lang daw yung pede mag apply sa mga project nila. nakakababa din kasi ng pagkatao kung less than $1 lang yung ibabayad sayo or 30 pesos lang sa kabuuan ng work na gagawin mo ng ilang araw. madaming ganyan ngayon fixed job na less than $1 lang yun deal nila. 30 pesos lang yun bayad talo ka pa sa kuryente at internet connection.

aminin man natin or hindi, karamihan satin dito nakatutok lang sa data entry at researching job, hindi naman kasi lahat tayo may alam sa ibang fields. data entry at research job, yang yung mga job na yung buyer na mismo yung nag oofer na less than $1 lang yung pipiliin nyang providers. ilang months din ako nag work sa odesk may mga nakuhang assignment naman kahit papano pero i decide to stop nung naging ganyan na yung trend ng presyo ng mga buyers.

kung may organisasyon lang sana tayo para may minimum tayong rate na sinusunod, kaso freelancing tayong lahat. kung wala kasing mag rarate ng mababa wala magagawa buyers, pero since alam ng buyers madaming bumibigay kahit mababang rate kaya ganun yung rate nila. sino ba naman buyers yung ayaw makatipid. sa nangyaring trend ng price ngayon i don't think na babalik pa sa dati yun bayad sa mga data entry and researching job.

lahat tayo gusto nating magka work kesehodang halos libre na yung services natin, pero sa ginagawa natin tayo din yung pumapatay sa trabaho natin. kung nagpapakapagod ka at hindi ka din masyado kumikita(lugi ka pa), darating yun time na hihinto ka din. once na bumaba na yung rate hindi na yan babalik sa dati and worse baka bumaba pa yan ng bumaba. dba ? tingin nung iba?

Some tips lang. Feedback or reputation ng contractor ang pinakamatimbang sa mga employers dito sir. Most clients look for positive reviews before even putting your profile in their shortlist of hires. And also, it helps if you score in the top 30 or better yet, in the top 10 of those online assessments kasi makikita agad yan sa profile mu. That was one of the things I did when I started out here with no feedback yet -- I took many of those online tests and strived real hard to get top 10 scores and concentrated on a particular field which are English tests. I guess my high scores caught the fancy of my first employer who then hired me as an article writer for my first job. After my first job, madali na lang makakuha ng jobs kasi may reputation ka na. Madali na as in, yung employers pa mismo ang lalapit sayo to encourage you to apply for their job posts.

Right now, I currently have 5 ongoing hourly jobs with one contract paying me $5 /hr -- not bad for simple copy-pasting work. I have another at $4 /hr. doing simple website admin curating and updating. Tumigil na nga ako sa pag apply in BPOs here dahil sa sobrang babad ko na dito online hehe.
