Previous Article Next Article

Freelancing used to be something relegated to artists, writers and a few other creative types, but over the last 10-15 years the landscape has changed dramatically. Today the freelance marketplace is filled with hopeful freelancers in just about every industry, and as a result competition has gotten somewhat fierce. Not to worry, there's still plenty of work out there for freelancers who are good at what they do and present themselves well. After all, we still strongly believe freelancing is the future of business.

One of the greatest advantages of freelancing is the flexibility it provides. You are literally your own boss and can choose when and where to work. You also choose which jobs to accept as long as there are several to choose from. That brings us to the topic of this post, the best freelancer job sites to work with.

There are so many freelance job sites today that it can make your head spin. Choosing which ones to post your resume or cv to can be a daunting task.

Beware Fellow Freelancer Writers of sites with employers that are only willing to pay unreasonably low rates for your work. I've been on a few sites where employers are only willing to pay a few dollars for a 300-1000 word article! (Actually, it was 60 cents to $3.) You're worth so much more!

odesk is good one, people per hour and elance are best platforms to work.

I am an employer on Elance, and I really feel it's the best freelancing platform out there from an employer's perspective. The rates are good and the quality of the freelance talent is exceptional. I've probably had more than 20 jobs done through Elance and haven't been disappointed yet.
