8kMiles - The new freelancer website launched is the recently launched freelancer websites. Three NRI Indian have created this portal as a bridge between service buyers and service providers.

Like other freelance websites they provide free membership to project buyers and providers. Apart from linking the buyers and providers these Indian owned company gone one step furthers. They provide virtual software and hardware environment. If you need a Windows based Pentium machine with Microsoft .net and SQL server loaded, they have one for you. If you need a Linux platform for your project they have the machine. You can work online on these platforms and software.

Like and they provide safety for buyer as well as provider. Interest of both parties are saved by offering escrow payment option as a deposit of security.

Buyer's interest is further guarded by verifying service providers identity. For this they ask for Identity proof like Voters ID, Driving license, PAN card. Freelancer has to scan these documents and upload them while registering on this site.

Ok. This is a startup company and we have no experience on it. Let us register now and see. I have not yet registered on the site. I have no time on even GAF and as i am working hard to improve my adsense income with blogs.

My First Attempt in Freelancing

I started with paid surveys and paid to click advertisement and emails. The only paid survey which paid real money is ciao surveys. There are some other survey websites where i have not reached the payment threshold. They have set a minimum of 50-100 dollars to get a payout.

The screen shot is taken from ciao surveys payments page. They pay in Indian Rupees. They pay via Indiatimes vouchers / Gift certificates. You can redeem these certificates on Indiatimes websites where they sell thousands of Goods online. I have provided the registration link below.

There are some other websites worth trying. You can find them in the link below.

Paid Survey Websites

They give incentives / rewards by cash, sweepstakes, Gift Certificates, product demo samples etc.

I have joined some paid to click programs. These programs are waste of time and energy. I discourage you to join these programs.
