Which freelance job site do you spend most time in?


Recommended Posts

It took most of my time transcribing audio using gotranscription site and upwork as well. there's really a lot of online jobs when I started and so far I these are the two who eats up my time at least it's worth it and it's free subscription but for gotranscript you need to take an exam to test your expertise on transcribing audios.

Is it difficult to pass the test in gotranscription? How much you earn there? I am planning also to work online about transcription but I don't have much idea about those kind of work. In upwork do you really have to get interview if you will apply for transcribing?.

I spend more time in upwork right now, trying to learn and to know about their site and how to apply and get a client, but honestly, I'm still not getting any work from that site.

honestly I am only doing postloop portal right now, before I used to give proposal on other freelancing site like upwork, I also have tried spending time in humanatics and picoworker but it takes so much time just to be able to pay out, unlike postloop portal that you don't really have to spend so much time posting in every furoms available, yes the pay out maybe quite small at least it can be continuous unlike other site.

I spend most of my time in my blog site. This days I'm quite lost of something to write. I keep on reveiwing my old articles to gain some motivations in writing again but still  nothing. By the way, I linked my blog to Google Adsense to monetize it. I usually post an article about reviews and travel destinations.

I think I just got lucky for passing in gotranscription. Actually I really thought that I have good listening skills, I think that 's the one thing I got from having an experience in a contact center but that's ages ago haha. Every audio in gotranscript is different. You will be paid depending on the duration of the audio for example if it's 10 minutes long, you will get $2.50 sometimes higher or lower.

In upwork, interview varies and depends on the client. Some prefer a phone interview or just chat in there. Others clients want to see you so video interview is required. It's up to you where you're comfortable with, hope you find a good one.

Have you experience video interview? Actually I don't have yet experience video interviews so I wanted to know how does it feel being interviewed in skype. I easily get nervous so I am just afraid I can't answer their questions directly infront of the video haha.

Not yet, just chat and phone interview. It's really okay to be nervous but be professional, just say your thoughts because there's no other person sees you besides the one behind the camera. Be yourself! Promote yourself in a simple way you would think that's okay with you if you are the one whose interviewing another person. Maybe practice in the mirror, It helps.

Okay dear! Yeah I agree with you that being nervous is just a normal for each and everyone of us. By the way thank you for giving me a tip and advice. I really appreciate it. I will do your advice to practice in the mirror. Thanks a lot @Marako0406

I work as a writer and currently I am in the process of transitioning into a transcriber. I hope that I can be able to maximize my income and looking for reliable sites like transcribeme. Any advice would be appreciated.

Honestly I am just spending much of my time to some paid to post forum sites since these are the sites that I feel convenient to work on since I am working as a full time employee in a particular company and post to paid forum sites are one of my great source of extra income. I wish to have more earning sites but because of my situation I just stick to some forums since I am also able to earn at least 5-6 dollars a day which is not really bad anymore. It is good that I am earning some few penny out of my vacant time and I am utilizing it to have more earnings every month.

For those who work online full-time or part-time, which site do you spend most time in? What kind of work do you do there? 

I work part time as a freelancer. There are few freelance websites that I have time to work on but the most important one where I spend most of my time in is called Postloop.
