People Per Hour
Rating: 4.2 out of 5
PeoplePerHour pretty much does what it says on the tin.
Every type of freelance worker has a good chance of listing services, whatever your role is. However, you’ll need to work through a network that boasts over 100,000 registered clients. Meaning getting noticed can prove difficult.
PeoplePerHour can, however, can be a decent freelance marketplace for web developers looking to build a formidable portfolio, for graphic designers looking to establish themselves as a leader in their field, and for writers seeking to get their voice out into the world.
Businesses and individuals seeking global talents will appreciate PeoplePerHour’s bidding system that is simple and well-designed.
When you visit the PeoplePerHour homepage, you’ll see that most freelance gigs have a “buy it now” price. You simply select an hourly rate, and you’ll receive notifications of projects that call for your services.
The only downside is that your hourly rate may end up being higher than you expected, but you can always use the browse opportunities section of the site to inspect the posting and negotiate a better rate.
All that being said, PeoplePerHour is for everyone – rookie or expert, designer, or developer.
PeoplePerHour is growing and accepting a lot of new talents across all sorts of fields. In fact, you never know who you’ll end up working with and for.
As for the marketplace fee, PeoplePerHour has officially announced the latest marketplace fee structure. The new structure is 20% of the first 250 GBP, 7.5% of the next 5000 GBP, and 3.5% for every additional amount.
The platform also charges a 10-cent brokerage fee for each job posting, but that’s a small price to pay for a big pool of fresh freelance talent.
Be warned though, if you sign up, you’ll receive a lot of emails from them, most of which will be better off in your bin.
