Freelance Success Factors

The folks at oDesk are once again doing their excellent job of sharing. Last month they compiled and published a list of the top 100 freelance blogs on the web (yeah, of course we were among them). Now, based on a panel survey of their top programmers, designers, virtual assistants, and other contract providers, they’ve compiled a list of the top 10 and bottom 10 freelancing success factors.

Among the top success factors were:

  • Communication
  • Feedback Scores
  • Attitude

Scraping the bottom of the success factor barrel were:

  • Hourly rate
  • Availability
  • Skills Section

Read all about it at oDesk.com and if you’re not already using them to find freelance work, go for it!
