So You Want To Be A Freelancer

Making money online is a popular topic for people looking for ways to make an extra income or even replace their current income. The great thing about making money online is that there are so many options and opportunities. However,

the bad thing about making money online is that there are so many options and opportunities! So, how do you know which ones are legitimate and which ones are scams? Freelancing is becoming an increasingly popular way to work. According to a study by the Freelancers Union,

over one-third of the American workforce is now freelancing. That number is only going to grow in the years ahead. If you’re thinking about freelancing, or if you’re already freelancing, there are some things you need to know. Before diving deep in digital marketing, I used these three sites.

1. Fiver 

Founded by Micha Kaufman and Shai Wininger and is an Israeli based online marketplace for freelancers. They offer practical online guides for their freelancers covering everything you need to know about digital marketing, video animation, writing and copywriting, programming and tech, graphics and design, and more. I signed up long ago, they’ve been around since 2010. You can advertise your talents (called gigs) under the category that will be best to get hired. Take a look through the site if you’re trying to get ideas on what you’d like to do.

2. SeoClerks 

Founded in 2011 by Jordan DeLozier owner of Iconicware,Inc. As a freelancer (seller) you create a profile (make it as detailed as you can) the website is easy to navigate and well organized. If you need any help their customer support is excellent just create a help ticket. They also have a community section that other users may have a provided an answer to your question. The intent Jordan DeLozier had was to build a safe and secure website for both buyers and sellers. Take a look through the site, I found it easy to navigate. The reviews on Trustpilot were 4 out of 5 stars at the time I worked as a freelancer, I really liked this site, it was easy to use and I got plenty of work.

3. Toptal

They state on their website they only have the top tier 3% in their freelancers. They have a very good rating with Trustpilot at 4.6, Yes, I checked them out before I gave them the opportunity to vet me. You have to pass a screening process that includes English proficiency and skills in your field.
