Making Money Freelancing with HigherClick – Full Review
**Sadly – it appears HigherClick is no longer in business. The domain is for sale. I see nothing on the internet regarding why they closed or what happened.
I first investigated HigherClick.com when a fellow writer asked me about the company and if it should be something they check out. Since I’d never heard about it, I decided I should take a look.
Of all the freelancing work at home opportunities I’ve checked out over the years, none have had the professional polished look of the HigherClick.com website. This is a company that wants to be taken seriously. The fact that the company has a picture of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory posted on their webpage endeared them to me.
The company has a variety of different positions available. Some are on location positions, but others are ideal for freelancers like me. The ones I was particularly interested in were the ones geared towards freelance writers. From what I can tell the company does have a high demand for freelancers and makes lots of promises that look appealing.
The company is interested in hiring talented writers (really talented who are willing to be creative) to handle blog posts and website content. HigherClick.com promises a wide variety of topics and steady work. They do have deadlines but promise that freelance writers will be able to create a very flexible work schedule. For me – that flexible schedule is critical. Like today… my daughter called at 11:30 to say that she forgot to have me fill out a volleyball camp permission form and write the $30 check for it. Yikes! Yes, the school in only 10 minutes away – BUT, working for someone else or on a fixed schedule – I could not have run out and gotten this done. And her camp started TODAY after school. Not to mention… jobs like HigherClick allow me to earn the cash to pay for things like this volleyball camp. Freelance work that is steady, and involves doing something you enjoy is a great way to work at home.
One of the biggest concerns I have regarding HigherClick.com has to do with the fact that the company is located in Budapest. When it comes to freelancing work, I always have reservations working for companies located on the other side of the world if for no other reason than the vastly different time zones can lead to complications about deadlines and assignment times.
Another concern I have is the lack of information. It was very difficult to find information on this company when I browsed the internet. On one hand this means that no one has had any real complaints about the company, or none worth posting about, but it also means I don’t have any idea what I should watch out for.
In Conclusion – Going for It at HigherClick
I have signed up for HigherClick.com and I have to say that it was a very pleasant, very easy process. So far they seem like an upfront company who genuinely wants to make sure that everyone they hire is happy. The work seems to be steady enough at the moment, but I’m going to give the company a few weeks before I make a final statement about them.
