newbie here (actually signed up some time last year, but started actively using the site only last week), asking you for sharing opinions and experiences.
What is your take on how many bids it will take to get your first assignment? How many did you place?
And what about pricing?
I have seen people doing 20-page magazines for 50 Dollars (actually one of the employers felt ,insulted' by my - in my opinion - more realistic offer) and business card for 10 or 15 bucks.
I am starting to wonder if it is even possible to get any work through this site with prices that allow me to make a living . . .
Thanks for your answers!
