Freelancer websites are a great place to find web developers, graphic designers, coders, and writers for your projects. So if you have a great idea, but you are short of time – you can find top rated professionals to outsource that work to – and the cost may not be as high as you think!
Fiverr.com is a fantastic freelance website that allows you to find a whole range of freelancers who will do jobs starting at just $5.50 including fees.
You can sort the results to show the top rated providers in the category you are looking for, eg. web design, graphic design, logos, writers, coders, and then look through their portfolio and reviews to find the right freelancer for your project.
I use Fiverr.com very often and have built up good relationships with some of the freelancers on there.
If you are interested in making money by selling your professional services you can also do that on Fiverr and choose as many additional options as you wish to increase the price of your “gig” above the basic $5.50.
Freelancer.com is another site where you can post a project giving details about your requirements, set your budget range, then receive bids from providers who will give you quotes for the project.
You can then sort by top rated, and look through the bids to short-list possible providers. You can then interview each one of them, and choose the freelancer that you prefer to work with.
Again, if you want to sell your own services on Freelancer you can do that and pick up work regularly by bidding for projects. Upload a great portfolio and build up reviews to become a top rated seller.
I regularly use freelancer websites to outsource tasks such as logos, graphic design, web development, coding, and writing. The cost is often significantly lower than going to a company in the UK directly, and it supports small business and sole entrepreneurs all over the world.
You can build some fantastic relationships with freelancers you employ through these websites. I’ve been working with one coder on one of my main projects now for over four years!
