Make More Money as a Web Dev + Awesome Desktop Wallpaper

Envato, the people behind Nettuts+, have created a new avenue for web developers to earn an income doing what they love.

It’s called Microlancer, and we’ve recently started allowing freelancers to offer web dev services like PSD to HTML, WordPress plug-in development, and website customization.

You can set your own prices, turnaround time, and the terms of your services. We connect you with buyers who pay upfront to work with you. It’s an awesome new way to earn an income doing simple web dev jobs without having to worry about quotes, bidding, chasing up payment, invoicing, or self-promotion. We bring buyers, you do the work, Microlancer takes care of the rest, and you get paid.


Over $130,000 jobs have been sold to date on Microlancer, and twenty of our design service providers are into the thousands of dollars in gross earnings.

If you’d like more web development work, consider joining Microlancer to sell your web dev services.

If you love to code but struggle with design, Microlancer’s designers can help with things like logo design, web design, app icon design and much more.

If you currently have more work than you can handle, Microlancer is an excellent place to outsource jobs.
