Provide Proper Description
The description is what that better explains your project. So the first thing is from your side. Provide the description with your project details, how you want it to be done, who are likely to be selected etc. By providing the correct description the bidders know better about the project and then bid on the project.
Accept Milestone Payment
People don't want to get cheated; there are many people who just post fake deals. So if you want your work done then you must give a milestone payment. Doesn't worry if your work is not done you will get them back. By giving milestone payment the freelancers trust you more.
If It's your First Project
If you are new on freelancer.com then you must give chances to the freelancers who have done many works before and have positive reviews. As you're starting you need your project to be good. You can also give a try to new freelancers but in this world we can't trust anybody.
Which BID To Accept
This is the most important part, here is your projects future, your dream full filled or un filled. When your project is not like you got. You can leave a negative review but you won't get your money back, so this is the most important part. There are many factors to select a bid: price, time, experience.
Don't just think about the money, if you need quality then you must afford worth that. So don't directly go for a low cost bid. See both time and cost. If the person can complete your work both in time and the price you can afford than you may accept the bid.
Also do check the personal mails. Many people do describe what they can do, and if it seems they can do it then you may proceed with him.
Whom can you Trust?
Generally people do fear from taking decisions so if you want to trust a person on freelancer.com then there are few things from the user side. Of course you cant make your project go wrong with your hard earned money. So there are few factors you need to take care of before proceeding to a freelancer. Some include:
• Check his/her portfolio
• Check his/her exams percentage
• Check their previous project reviews
• Check weather profile/email verified or not
These are some things to keep away cheats.
Hire in One Day?
Please take care, there are many people saying I will complete your work now itself, even if everything is okay with them. Because you may get many more bids offering more for less price and good quality, so never take a decision in hurry and make a project run for at least 10 days. Here are some tips:
• Wait until your project time
• Don't go for the first bidders
• Read their personal message but don't go into their black magic
Want Fast Bidding?
As said above we need to wait for at least 10 days before accepting a bid but. It is so that you may get more quality bids than the first ones. But it take time to get more bids, still there are ways to get more bids in less time, that's possible by featuring your project. Yes, when you feature your project, it appears on most of the pages related to the search or category, so chances of getting more bids in less time.
View Bidders Profile
Simply viewing the bid text won't do, you need to know all about the bidder. So check out his/her profile which contains their resume, exams, skills, reviews etc. After you view everything and understand it's your turn to decide whether to trust or not. Well you're not going to lose your money as if your work is not done you can get your milestone payment back but, you will lose your time. Some handy tips:
• Spare time in viewing the complete profile
• Make sure their profile is at least 50% completed
Compare Between the Bidders
After you get some bidders with their prices, delivery period and personal message take some time in comparing them, who better explains how he is going to do your project. Do see their reviews; don't just go for low cost as you need your work done with quality. Remember, a quality work needs time to complete so don't always go for the bid which says your work will be done in hours. After viewing everything, again wait until your bid time is completed, you have chances in getting better bids, thing carefully who is perfect for your project (as it's your project)
But still it depends on you, you need to know about the freelancer and hire them. So be cool, don't get confused as it may lead to loss of your money. Explain about your project, give a milestone payment for trust, don't get hurried, wait for the time, choose the best freelancer, get your work done perfectly give a good review and enjoy. Freelancer.com is the best site I ever know to find best freelancers all over the World Wide Web.
