Freelance Software Work

    Hi All,

    I am trying to find freelance software dev work, I find that UpWork and freelancer arent very friendly to newbies - seems very difficult to get a gig.

    What other good platforms are out there?
    SEMrush
    Thanks in advance

    Sorry to throw salt on your game but Upwork is where it's at.

    Yeah, you're a newbie and yes it will be difficult to get a gig. The same will apply in the majority of places.

    I used upwork (ODesk at the time) back when I was a freelancer and to get my initial gigs, I had to work for WAY LESS than I was worth.

    But it's worth it.

    Do your first 2-4 gigs dirt-cheap and do them well. After that point, it will be way easier to get paid what your skills are worth :)

    But there's no shortcut.

    There are lots of platform from freelancer.Everyone searching low price and good review holder freelancer. Thats why there are very tuft to get self position.While you are applying for work ,somebody take this unethical advantage from newbies, will work but will not pay.After all , if you can get set once,it will be easy for you.

    Try Fiverr, SEOClerks. As others told you price your services less than what you think others should pay you. Alternatively be a buyer for few days and find out what prices other sellers are offering. I hope I have explained a lot.

    You should try out the "fiverr". In comparison in this website you will have better chance to get work but man you should have patience. On this freelancing sites it takes time to establish your presence.

    Try Zeerk. The great thing about Zeerk is that, while Fiverr takes a full 20% of your earnings from gigs, Zeerk will only deduct 10%.

    Try to stay away from interviews scheduled timely and keep trying, apply to projects on upwork and freelancer and the people having reputed profiles will start to get down the list resulting in loosing some of the clients.
