PeoplePerhour Review: My Experience while Hiring Freelancer on PeoplePerHour.com

The most efficient way to boost online business is by outsourcing or hiring freelancers. As an online entrepreneur, you have to hire freelancers for various jobs.

I have also hired many freelancers in the past few years to complete various jobs. I have not only hired experienced freelancers but also understand how people behave on different freelance marketplaces.

I have used sites like Upwork, Fiverr, Freelancer, Peopleperhour to hire freelancers.

Today, I will share my experience with hiring freelancers on PeoplePerhour.

I will share all the pros and cons that I have experienced while hiring freelancers on PeoplePerHour.com.

What is PeoplePerhour?

PeoplePerHour.com is a popular freelance network running online since 2007. The site has connected over one million freelancers and clients.

It is an excellent place to find freelance jobs as well as hire freelancers to get the job done.

PeoplePerHour Review:  Should You Hire Freelancers from PeoplePerHour?

I have used various freelance networks to hire freelancers. I have hired writers, editors and promotion managers from these networks.

I have also hired a freelancer for some of my clients.

I have hired this guy from peopleperhour to edit videos. I have created the requirement for job posting and published it.

To hire Freelancer on PeoplePerhour, you need to post the job.

To post a job, you need to fill details such as;
  • “What do you need to get done?”
  • “Pick Category”
  • “Description”
  • “Upload samples.”
  • “Work Type”
  • “Currency”
  • “Budget”
  • “Experience Level”
If you want to hire a fresher, then you can set “Entry” level in experience and if you want expert then choose “Expert” level.

From my experience, I suggest you always to choose an expert freelancer.

Hiring expert will ensure that you get the job done most professionally.

  • After publishing the job post, the next thing is to invite existing freelancer.
  • I also looked at the option to filter and invite freelancers according to country, projects, etc.
  • I received few proposals.
  • After spending some time reading portfolios, I have decided to hire a freelancer.
  • I have asked him to show his skills by editing a test video.
Like other freelancing sites such as Fiverr and UpWork, PeoplePerHour also allows you to chat with freelancers. You can also do video calls.

I have discussed the project with the freelancer I have hired. He sent me a test video after editing.
To get the job done in the most effective way you need to give clear instructions. You should provide details such as video intro, images, etc.

You need to accept the proposal of the freelancer to award him the job. You will find many freelancers bidding for the job with the price you have quoted or at the higher rate.

Remember: You will be charged for the price per hour.

You must add money to the PeoplePerhour account.

PeoplePerHour uses Escrow to ensure safe transactions.

The freelancer I have hired had delivered the proposal within a few hours.

I was satisfied, so I asked him to send me an invoice.

I never had any issues hiring freelancers from Peopleperhour, Upwork and Fiverr.

Many of you may not know that payment will be sent to the freelancer only when he will send the final invoice.

Pros of PeoplePerhour:

  • Thousands of expert freelancers
  • Chat messaging, and video call feature
  • Safe payment
  • User-friendly

Cons of PeoplePerHour:

  • A newbie may need some time to get familiar with the interface.

Final Words:

In this PeoplePerhour review I have shared everything that I have experienced.

According to my experience, PeoplePerhour is an excellent freelance network then one should use to hire freelancers. It is an excellent place to find experienced freelancers.
