I will always turn down a job if I don’t think I can be awesome at it.

People Per Hour rather a lot.Permalink |I’ve been on there for some years, and have found a pretty good way to isolate people who are going to be poor to work with.100% of clients who write to me three times in a row without a response have been crap. Now, I suaully get back to all message son there within a couple of hours, so that gives you an idea of how quickly they’re trying to chase me up, even before I’ve had a chance to say hello.
Products I sell (known as “Hourlies”) through PeoplePerHour:
- I can optimise the hell out of your WordPress SEO £47!
- I can make you an awesome personal online brand £167!
- I can create an offline version of your website for promotional materials £33!
- I can design your Facebook Page for you £19!
- I can remove the “admin” vulnerability from your WordPress website £10!
- I can build a custom HTML postcard email system for you £47!
I’m putting a new, exciting hourlie up on PeoplePerHour, basically it’s a way for people to carry around (and give away) a local copy of their website! Marketing to the max.
The link to my PPH profile is, http://pph.me/peter – the link to the hourlie will follow shortly.
When I first started working for myself I needed a confidence boost, and sitting in my office asking people if they needed help with anything wasn’t giving me it.
I had a tonne of offers for agency work, but I’m in this game to create my own business, not just support someone else’s. I’m happy to be a gun for hire, but I want to at least be protecting my own town.
A friend recommended PeoplePerHour, and at first I was somewhat sceptical because of other similar freelance sites I’d used (that all seemed very driven to support the buyer, making the seller feel like a turd begging for work) but got my first paying job on it within several hours. Then another. Then a third.
That was the confidence I needed. Next thing I knew I was taking on client’s from elsewhere, and could demonstrate my skills.
I came back though. I wanted to start 2013 with some fresh work, so you’ll find me selling my wares there again. It’s a creative space for people to meet and find common ground to work towards. ANd of course, there’s some really talented developers on there too.
If I do say so myself.
Why not hire me?
