Today, I’ve decided to register at TopTal.com
I’ve been working for Odesk.com and Elance.com for years (merged as UpWork.com… Here is my profile), and I’ve been glad of them, but after they’ve merged, I dont like things.
First of all, the excellent website – Elance.com, lost his many still excellent functionalities (job-filtering – my favorite thing), and UpWork.com is mainly an updated version of Odesk. Also, unexpectedly, they’ve raised the fees to 20% of the project. That is too much high…
Unfortunately, there was not quite a strong competitor (freelancer.com and pph.com, but not as strong I think) and I had to accommodate situation.
However, I now want to try TopTal.
The pros I suppose is that you meet with real clients – no the ones from fraudulent accounts, who just copy-paste jobpostings, but the end-customers of you. The cons is that, there is higher responsibility and you should be ready to do a 5-star result.
Let’s see what happens.
