Easy to use websites where you can sell your freelancing services:
Welcome to entrepreneurship!
You have thought about working for yourself in some way or another… but where do you go to get clients?
Whether you want to work as a writer, editor, virtual assistant, social media manager, marketing, data entry or even customer service, there’s always a place for someone.
Here are the best sites to do your business with no up-charge (omg for fwee??) and very easy to use, meaning less time figuring the site out and getting right to work! Be sure to stick around to the end of the post to see the top 5 tips to get noticed on any of these freelancing sites – so you get found in the sea of others and can make that moolah!
This post contains affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase through my link I earn a small commission at no extra charge to you. I only suggest items I trust. Full Disclosure Here. Thanks for your support.
One thing to mention before you hop on any of these sites is that when you collect your pay, the site itself keeps a small portion for commission. Keep that in mind when you give out your rates.
Everyone knows about Upwork! You simply just sign up, set up your profile and get started looking for jobs. I have personally worked on Upwork before and I will give you a little bit of key information. My advise is to set up a rockin’ profile on there! Mention how great you are and all of the ways you can help other’s with their work (such as list your skills!).
You can charge by task, milestones, by the hour, and by the recurring payment. Guru pays through SafePay. This site is also like Upwork where you set up a profile and put in a bid to the client.
You can charge by a fixed price or by hourly.
Find jobs ranging in Customer support, programming, design, business, exec/management, marketing and copywriting +more.
Fiverr is also a very well known site to list your business. As the name would give itself away, you post your skills for about $5.00 (even though you can clearly post for higher rates!)
“It’s simple. Give us your email, get projects right away and try it absolutely free. We don’t take a percentage or get referral fees from anyone. Any client you land is 100% yours.” – Folyo. What the?! That sounds kind of awesome!
Also known as Amazon Mechanical Turk – good old Amazon.
It’s true, you can find gigs to do remotely on Indeed. Be sure to put “remote” “remotely” “freelance” or “work from home” type of keywords into the Job Title box and see what comes up.
“FreeeUp recruits, interviews, and vets thousands of freelancers every month then gives you access to the top 1% of applicants.
Get introduced to a freelancer from the marketplace matching your needs within 1 business day. ” – FreeeUp
From services like Virtual Assisting to Nursing +tons more.
By taking a look at RRR – this seems like a great place for some community support as they have free weekly emails and a Facebook page to help freelancers find jobs. They also have a whole page dedicated to success stories, awwww! 🙂
Looking at this site, this is best for Virtual Assistants, Writers, Editors, and Social Media Managers to find remote work.
“The Remotive Community is one of the best places to interact online with other remote workers… ands down! Many of us working remotely don’t experience the camaraderie of working closely with a team, and the Remotive community allows us to congregate no matter where we are in the world. It’s where the “cool kids” in remote work hang out!“
Mostly based for the US and UK. They pay through Paypal.
More of like a contest. As a designer you can show off your fab designs, enter contests and win gift cards +more.
You can only select London or New York as your location. After that, submit in an application as a freelancer.
Basically the same as Upwork and Freelancer.
Gigs range from $5, $10, $20 and $50.
This company promises a fast pace turn – around for their clients. Promising their clients to get their projects back within 24 hours.
