“Thank you Ivan, great work! it's a little risk to hire freelancer who does not have a long background on Elance, I believe that many people think this way. But you should keep an open mind and choose fresh talent often it's worth. Ivan was a great Designer and I can highly recommend him. Thanks a lot.”
“It was a Facebook landing page project. I'm really happy about the design, that's really great!
But about the page creation, I thought that it's editable HTML, now the whole landing page is just a one big picture. But as I wrote I thought, I didn't mention this in my project description. But on the other hand I would really like that provider would ask this kind of things, be more proactive. Now the landing page content is not possible to edit.
Also some little extra questions and messages what related to access rights.
Conclusion is that design was perfect but page creation was not in that level what I expected. It's hard to find good partners via Elance, now I need to start again looking for find a new provider for our coming Facebook projects. So, my feelings is 50/50...”
“This project stated designing and creation of a Landing Page and installing it to clients facebook page and this is what we exactly did at the agreed budget. We were never told that the client would like it to be editable HTML. So we did what was agreed within this budget. If the client would have requested us to provide the editable HTML than we had no problem sending him the file but there was no request made by him. Anyways, the End results were very satisfactory and the client liked what we delivered. If we get another chance to work with this client, we promise to deliver everything as per the clients requirements. Thanks you very much and we look forward to work with you again in future.”
“This time we just do not come forward. Sometimes, in creative work is like this. I got tired when I did not get anything really new and unique. They done the profile photo. But anyway I will re-open this project and let's see what I will get.”
I have a data available and I need a 4 dimension (4 axes) chart, this could be a really simple and straightforward task if you've good practical experience. I guess that this is max 1 hour task. The final deliverable should be a full editable so that I can just add new values to the table and generate a new chart.
Skills: admin assistant, microsoft excel
“I needed urgent assistance from an Excel formula and chart. The work was done quickly and I am happy. I can recommend the freelancer, thanks a lot for your help!”

“Hi, Unfortunately this was not my best Elance experience, what about this contributor... never again. They are not familiar how Elance work, how to accept delivered work, how much time the client have to review (15 days based on Terms and Conditons) and so on. The contributor even started Dispute process against me. I'm well managed over 50 Elance project so this something what just happened sometimes. The cheapest contributor is not the best choice always.”
“Thank you for your kind feedback. First of all, we don't sell cheap services, we did a single banner for $20 in your project and that's not cheap as per market rates goes. About the Elance terms and condition, I think you have a misunderstanding - you need to release the funds from Escrow immediately after the contractor submit you the project. It is clearly written in our payment terms.
There was 6 requests from us to release the payment in the workroom which you never replied. So, we had to file a dispute. Even, at the end of everything, we were confused why you didn't release the payment or replied to our messages at the first place. It was a learning curve for us in this project, that we need to indicate the customers to read our project terms and conditions before starting with the same.
“The Job was well done, few review rounds which is a normal process when doing a design work. Umar have a good communication and listen customer. He is a Photoshop professional, can do his job independent. When doing a design work, maybe would be good if customer can offer some kind of mock-ups or examples which kind of designs customer wants. But overall we're happy for final deliverable. All the best for you Umar!”
We need a 3 different web page template for our site.
Visual design + html coding + css, html should be well done proper hand made code. And pages should be well commented so that final content is easy to add.
No tables! Pages should be scalable and also take into account our further needs for responsive site which works well also in tablets ...
“Only weak aspect was that this contractor didn't communicate as I expected. I would like to get status updates all the time. It's not so nice if client must ask that what's going on. The competence what related to the blog issue and WordPress is good. Also it's not so nice that project is not yet ready and there are still some small change requests that contractor requested payment. For me the process is now and also in future that 1st project is completed and client should have enough time to verify what is done and then releasing the Escrow account. Exactly as normal business life. Here in Elance so many are so eager to get every single projects and also so eager to get money and run. But once again, this contractor have a good competencies what related to WordPress! Thank You!”
“Project Awarded on June 6th
Project delivered on June 7th (1 day)
Escrow released on June 15th (8 days)
I don't understand why you would say there was no communication. All queries were answered within 4 hours and the job was done almost instantly. I haven't asked to release escrow till now.
We've a small website and now we'd like to add a blog functionality. Please read carefully, we're not talking about now blog like it is used.
This is more like just an one page what is easy to update, add a text content and photos. No commneting feature. Just one person will create a new posting, which is always a same structure, text and photo(s)...
“In practise it's a hard to rate this kind of work. We got exactly the amount of new fans, that's a fact. Just wondering was that what I want. Maybe not. I would be more interested to know which kind of fans those are, do they have any connection to our services what we are providing. In practise not. Just a bulk people. ”

Skills: graphic design, photoshop
“Work was done as agreed, some small changes as normally when talking about design work, even this was a small one. Thanks! By the way it was good that contractor suggested to re-design all buttons, not just that one what I originally requested. So, that was a good point!”
We are establishing our potential customer e-mail list (E-mail Marketing List) and we're now looking for Information Researchers for collecting names and e-mail addresses by using different type of search methods.
Target is to get around 2,000 valid contacts from publishing, advertisement and marketing industry.
“I'm extremely happy for this contractor and her high quality business ambitions. Friendly communication and independent working style make all things so smootly. And of course realistic opinion about timeschedule is essential. This project requires general business understandings and knowledge about information research methods and sources. Great work! Based on my experience I can really recommend her expertices.”
“Dear Janne, thank you for your positive feedback!
It has been a pleasure working with a client who is dedicated to the project, keeps regular correspondence and shows appreciation.
I look forward to the opportunity to assist you in the future.”
I request that this is a business as usual for you, just start and create the landing page, simple like that :)
Skills: facebook, html, php
“This was not so good Elance experience after 30 succesful projects with other contractors.
This contractor was extremely eager to get this Job awarded and I thought that she is a really interested and ready to do her best.
During project I done few requests to change small issues and she finally done it ready in some level. Please note that this Job was create a FB landing page. Simple and easy task.
But I was wrong. They never done request for release Escrow fund, they requested via message board few times that send money for them.
I noticed soon that Facebook landing page didn't work properly, there was some un-known code and references outside Facebook server(s).
And then they started sending a messages that all codes and apps. are still on their server and under their sole 100% control.
After I'll sent money for them they will delivery the Job and I can review and verify that work is done properly.
I created a support ticket for Elance (#498161) and I sent a Dispute Notice too.
Client have right to get 100% deliverable and right to review and verify that Job is done properly before releasing the Escrow fund based on Elance TOC.
Now I just liked to close this case and go further.
They will sure write some feedback but please read all my other feedback to my contractors (over 30 managed projects via Elance) and please read also feedback what my contractors are wrote about me.
I'm absolutely a fair client.
Then you can make your own conclusion which party is now right in this case.
All the best for this contractor and please work with other clients with right business manners in future, thank You.”
“This was a great experience! Good quality and friendly communication and of course price was reasonably. Overall a quick turn around - exactly what we required. I can really recommend this contractor and we'll definetily hire him again. Thank You Umar for a good work!”
