Since I became a real freelancer a month ago, I find a mass of friends in Shenzhen and try to find a good client that can support remote work.
But I failed.
I charge 250 Yuan( 30 Dollar ) per hour in China.
Most of clients think this is too high. I think they just don't understand a senior web developer's real value. Steve Jobs said, "a A+ talented developer is 100 multiple effective than a normal developer".
Then I turn my direction to the world. I researched odesk and Elance. After a few attempt, I deside foward the Elance platform.
I did something below:
register Elance and complete my profile on my account.
add some works I had made.
find my interesting project and create proposal for that.
A few days later, There's a client replyng my proposal, but because some reason I don't know it failed at last.
At the next day, I login Elance and am browsing the new posts, I find a very suitable project for me.
It's a bug fix in Devise JSON API. I have built an API gem called Lina, I am awful familar on it.
So I fire this project. Then It succeeded !
When I finished this job, the client gave a five star feedback to me.
The award is 200 dollor.
I just spend one day for that. It's cool.
