Low-Competition-Freelancing-Sites

Don’t you just hate it when the freelancing platform you’ve been using for years suddenly raise their platform fee to a ridiculous amount?

This not only forces us, freelancers, to raise our prices but also causes us to lose our repeating clients who often feel unhappy with sudden price changes.

UpWork now makes all of its users go through the same experience by using a new scheme of platform fees that is aimed at charging heavily from freelancers.

As soon as the news came out, most UpWork freelancers started looking for alternative platforms to avoid having to lose their money or having to raise their prices.

Which Freelancing Site Is Best For Beginners?

which-freelance-website-is-best

Starting to freelance is a lot like starting a business.

First, you have to develop skills and build your portfolio. And then you have to figure out what kind of services you’re going to offer.

But, the key to getting more work and winning clients is to find the “right” market to sell your services.

Imagine Apple coming out with a new iPhone and going to a market dominated by Android phones to sell it. Would anyone want to buy it? Of course not.

It’s pretty much the same in freelancing. It’s important for a freelancer to find the “right market”, or in this case the right freelance site, to sell their services from the very first day to start a successful freelance career.

While most experts and more established freelancers may advise you against using freelance sites to offer services, I believe it’s the perfect way for a beginner to start freelancing.

There are both upsides and downsides to using freelance sites to sell services and find work. But, as long as you find the best freelance site that fits your category of work, it will make your life so much simpler. It’s how I started my freelance career as well.

In this post, I will help you find the right platform to offer your services as a beginning freelancer. Let’s begin, shall we?
