Is freelancing on the internet a realistic possibility for someone in Canada to make money?
Many of the jobs I've seen seem to pay quite a lot and take very little effort, but surely there must be loads of people to compete with, right?
How can Canadians even compete with Panjeets and Raj's? Anyone here a freelancer?
I have interest in this as well. I was just on a site looking at jobs posted and some of them are entry level and offer training. Today is the first day I looked tho. I'm not sure how they pay. I need to be payed in a way I can bypass the government for reasons...
yeah in less than the time it took to post that job offer they could have done that. I think that was a troll post.
I've found it pays to become really niche if you learn something like Adobe Illustrator or article or blog writing or youtube. Pick one thing and become really good at what you do.
Otherwise I've had success with Ebay, Fiverr, and Translating services that pay more by the hour if anything - not a huge amount I've earned from these.
I'm a student and freelance doing copywriting in my free time. It honestly pays very well considering I have literally no qualifications for it, I can make $1000 per week if I put in good, quality hard work for about 40-50 hours per week. Only thing that sucks is copywriting can become pretty tedious if I'm not working on a big project and I'm just writing headlines or ads or whatever.
