Looking for freelance work is much easier if you know where to find legitimate work from home jobs websites.
Sometimes you see work at home opportunities and wonder if they are for real, but if you go to a site that provide legitimate jobs to work at home, you don't have to wonder. Instead, you can get on with building a business doing online freelance work.
Here are three of the best sites offering legitimate jobs for working from home.
Elance is a freelance marketplace that offers jobs in several categories.
Whether your skills are in programming, design, writing, translation, sales, finance, engineering or more, you can find a job on Elance.
Elance has almost 100,000 service providers and there are more than 20,000 new opportunities posted each month. Elance is one of the most popular websites for legitimate work at home jobs, and it includes an escrow system so you can be sure to get paid.
Guru claims to have a million freelancers on its books and offers an even wider range of skill areas.
In addition to the ones listed by Elance, Guru also covers freelancers who work with databases, computer aided design, illustration and art, photography and videography, fashion, broadcasting, administrative support and much more.
Like other companies, Guru allows you to set up a profile and bid for jobs. It has a free membership level, though the paid level opens up more bidding and profile opportunities.
Despite its name, Rentacoder is also an option for those looking for freelance jobs. Although it was initially intended for people working on website design and coding, it also includes a lot of related jobs, such as marketing and writing. This makes it a good option both for people with programming skills and those with writing skills.
There are two payment models for Rentacoder: pay-for-deliverables or pay-for-time. It is important to clearly understand and compare the two payment models.
This site is worth considering when looking for legitimate work from home jobs.
