Hi Everyone,

Thought I would start a thread about my experiences and am happy to give advice, or support to anyone who might need it.

I signed up to peopleperhour a couple of years back, at the start it was very hard trying to get someone to give me a chance, but then I learned how to write engaging proposals, got thick skin and accepted that quite a lot of my proposals would be rejected, and ploughed on, applying for as many jobs as possible. I finally got my first job! I enjoyed and still enjoy writing, so for me that was where I started, but there are so many different kinds of trades on there, that there will be something for everyone.

I started writing articles for SEO, and eventually was writing 15 to 25 articles a week that ranged from 100 to 2500 words. The more good feedback I received, the higher up the ranks I started to be. I then started expanding the work I was looking for, and as I have a PA background started applying for Virtual Assistant jobs. Many many rejections later I got one! Which is what I do now. Work 2 to 6 hours a day, all from home, to fit around my family, and taking home 400 to 600 a month.

It has been a massive learning curve for me, and you have to persevere, not just give up if your proposal is rejected. The more effort you put in the more you will get out.

Luck to you all, and happy to help anyone that needs it!

Shelley :)

Thank you for that information Shelley :)

It sounds as though your perseverance has paid off. It's good to know that this is a genuine avenue to explore.

Yeah earned good money off these guys

Once you get a gig it can really spawn off to other work available but competition on there is RIFE.

Cream always rises to the top I suppose, like Shelly has explained it will take a lot of hard work to get to where she has with the site.

Fairplay to the OP and good luck to her.

Its like most things in life if you want it and persevere at it you will eventually get there

Its important to set out goals i think from the start and when you get there set your self another goal to chase.

I guess the moral of the story here is see something and go and get it, and dont become stagnant.

I do love a success story it makes it all worth while then.

Cheers
Mark

My experience on PPH is very similar. A few months of rejections, and no one purchasing your Hourlies, but when that first one comes through, it feels so amazing

It is a very good website to sign up too, especially if you have some very unique skills
