As with any Market Place Elance takes time and effort to learn how to use it properly and effectively. Elance allowed me to move from a part time freelancer to a full time freelancer in 2007. I am continuing to do that on elance in 2008.



I get over 75% of my business through this channel. Two of my clients over a year old have migrated off of Elance.



They have systems in place to protect Providers though the use of Escrow based project similar to other market place sites. But both Providers and Buyers must recognize that quality control in the marketplace comes first from honest ethical Buyers and Sellers / Providers working together.



Elance management honestly is working to make the site better and is establishing a Users Council.

This site takes a lot of work to get a project and you are competing with lots of outsourcing and companies in India. Too much for for too little return
