Freelancing is becoming the first priority of young generation. We all want to become our own boss and want to live a stress-free life. Freelancing has evolved as a big business where people are utilizing their skills and helping other people to do their jobs in low price.
Latest technology and easy access have made freelancing much simpler as compared to 5-6 years back. There are plenty of guides for striking out on your own, but as a freelancer, getting higher-paying gigs isn’t just a matter of signing up on popular platforms. You’ll have to branch out, establish a great portfolio of past work and maybe even prove yourself through tests that showcase your skills.
We have listed some popular Freelancing site, who will pay you a decent amount depending on your skill. There are few sites who proceed payment in dollars, please sign up for that sites also because if you totally depend on the Indian platforms, then it is like “Leaving Money on Table.”
Looking at the healthy 46% growth of Indian freelancers being hired, one of the most known and trusted names in freelance websites. Freelancer.in is the Indian version of the immensely popular Freelancer.com marketplace. The site is optimized for the Indian market.
The project fees are listed in INR. Freelancers need to bid on projects, win, complete and receive payment through online bank transfer or cheques.
On a side note, if you plan to use Freelancer.in, expect a lot of competition and price war.
I love Fiverr more than anything.
Fiverr is completely free to join and you can list your services from $5. They will keep $1 from every gig which you will sell via Fiverr, in simple we can say; they are keeping $1 as commission.
This is the best place for internet marketers because there are many gigs related to social media, graphics design, video and animation, writing, advertising, building backlinks, blog commenting, logo design, business cards, SEO, copywriting and much more.
Fiverr has made first level seller, second level seller, and top rated seller. Once you achieve any of the good levels, you will start getting more sales.
With over 1.5 million clients, Upwork (previously oDesk) offers something for every type of freelancer. It accommodates both short- and long-term projects, hourly or per-project work and expert-level and entry-level engagements. Regardless of where you are in your career, Upwork is likely to have something for you.
Upwork is very popular for providing freelance work but according to me, it has incompetent customer service, confusing interface, arrogant management. So Choose it wisely.
The WorkNHire.com marketplace caters to the Indian freelancing market, offering a platform for businesses and freelancers to collaborate and grow.
The working model is similar to Elance.com or Freelancer.com. You sign up, fill out your profile, mention skills and experience and start bidding on projects.
To save you from the fluctuating conversion costs, the payment is done in Indian rupees and not in US dollars. The website offers services in PHP, Java and Game Programming, Graphic Designing, Content Writing, SEO and SMO and other services alike.
FreelanceIndia.com is perhaps one of the oldest (est. 2002) freelancing sites in India. It’s headed by Mr. L. N Agarwal, an alumnus of BITS Pilani.
Freelanceindia has different policies for its regular and premium members, start with the free one. Design of the website and browsing interface is quite unprofessional for such an established brand. But i had said it is a known name in freelance, so the site is worth a try.
The interactive and colorful website appeals to the user in a way better than the peers and the animated characters liven up the screen.
The site connects creative freelancers with top agencies looking for work in multiple fields like freelance writers, graphic designers, animators, flash experts, web designers, editors, photographers and more.
This site lets you easily showcase your past work experience and offers a daily job-matching feature to make sure you don’t miss out on any good opportunities. The Guru Work Room lets you easily manage all your work.
Professional designed Website with proper navigation option will encourage to Register with Guru.
This is also a reputed worldwide website that has come to India looking at the increasing number of freelancers India is offering to the world. Here you can post your skills or hire someone for a project.
The reputation that the website holds lends credibility to it and it works in favour of the users who are too scared of not being paid. The website deals in USD and freelancers put up their desired hourly rates on the website, making it easier for the companies to find a suitable freelancer in their budget.
This is a great platform, focusing on freelancing for web projects. If you’re a designer, web developer, SEO specialist, etc.
It is India’s first freelance marketplace where you can not only win freelance projects in multiple fields but also share your services. It’s a combination of freelance sites like eLance and mini-marketplaces like Fiverr.
Apart from these, try job boards like Craigslist and OLX for freelancing jobs. They have separate categories for recruiters to enlist their projects.
Although most people see Craigslist as just a platform for buying and selling miscellaneous things, it’s actually a great source of freelance jobs.
As I mentioned it is not a dedicated freelance site, but due to its sheer size, contractors can always find jobs here by searching the classifieds for work. Although the process is simple and cost-effective, Craigslist lacks many of the services usually available on true freelancing sites.
ContentMart is a marketplace where you can hire qualified writers for any writing job. It’s not limited to blog or content writing, but you can also hire writers who can write a sales page, service page or anything that is related to writing.
Getting started with Contentmart as a freelance writer or a client is pretty easy. It’s free to join & you can get started instantly, but you have to pass an English test also.
Apart from these 11 websites here are few more which you can try to sell your services at a suitable price.
