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?

It’s fairly easy to get started as a freelancer.

But it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and motivation to survive and be a successful freelancer.

This is why most new freelancers give up on their dreams of working from home after a few months.

And it’s also why only a handful of freelancers become successful and find financial freedom.

It took me more than 6 years of hard work as a full-time freelancer to get there. To finally find financial freedom.

As I’ve explained in my book, it didn’t happen overnight. I worked 100-hour workweeks and went through 20-hour workdays to get here. And learned a lot of lessons along the way.

These are some of the most important factors that helped me to be where I am today.

Working As A Freelancer: How Freelancing Changed My Life

working-as-a-freelancer-header

Freelancing is often considered to be “too hard” or “not for everyone”.

The funny thing is these terms are often defined by well-established freelancers who are comfortably making a living from it.

I’m not sure if they’re afraid of you taking over their jobs or if it’s just plain jealousy. Because my experience of working as a freelancer for over six years has been amazing and life-changing.

Sure, freelancing can be difficult at first. It took me over 4 years to get it right. Mainly because I had no one to ask for advice.

Nothing is ever easy. But, once you get on the right path, freelancing is also one of the most rewarding careers you can ever pursue.

Here’s how my life changed after starting freelancing.

If you’re living with an illness or a disability that prevents you from getting a job. And looking for an easy way to earn money from home. Then this post is for you.

Trying to provide for yourself, your family, and make money while being disabled can be tough. I understand this struggle better than anyone.

A few years ago, my mom was in an accident. While crossing the road, a bus literally ran over her. After going through several surgeries she survived but it left her disabled. She couldn’t walk or even stand.

My mom lived and worked in the UK. She provided for herself and our family here in Sri Lanka. Her accident affected all of our family.

It affected her mentality more than anything because she is an energetic person who worked with a passion. Being disabled made her powerless and unimportant. As a result, she was diagnosed with depression.
