lately I have been doing a lot of freelancing, I have also employed the services of freelance writers lately making it one of my busiest month in the open freelancing market.

Here is the list of seven (7) top freelancing sites I personally use and can also recommend ;

#1 SEOClerks

This is the top in my list ‘cos I can’t remember a day I didn’t log in to check the progress of my WTB over there. Strangely, I haven’t created any services there yet but spends a bunch of my time ordering services since that is the place you usually find the cheapest gigs.

I can recommend their services ‘cos you can easily get support and also gets your money back for cancelled gigs and/or any services you aren’t satisfied with.

There are variety of services you can create or order from SEOclerks including; Graphics related, article and website contents, custom codes, social media promotion, advertisement, Search Engine Optimization and many other premium services.

Other Unique Features:

Unlike other micro-job posting sites you have exclusive right as to what price tag you want to place on your services, you can also bid at whatsoever amount you deem fit for your time and professionalism. Even amount as little as $1 is allowed in SEOclerks provided you are ready to offer the service at that very amount.

You are also given the room to rate services either with a negative or positive remark. More features of SEOclerks can be found from their official website.

#2. PeoplePerHour

PeoplePerHour is a high-end freelancing website for top-rated talents and premium clients. We have used the services of PPH in the past for getting premium contents and a few times for Logo design jobs.

There’s a solid customer protection tools and a premium escrow system that’s built for fraud prevention. The no-nonsense review-check system makes it difficult to influence reviews on People Per Hour, as the seller only gets to see a buyer’s review after sharing his own.

For quality check, buyers are asked to send in a private review to checkmate the services being offered by sellers on People Per Hour, this way; qaulity services are offered across-the-board.

PeoplePerHour Coupon: For a limited time, you can get a free £30 to spend on orders as a new buyer if you sign up via this link. Remember to drop your reviews to help orders learn about PPH services.

#3. UpWork

UpWork unlike SEOclerks is a major freelancing website where professionals with real CV search for job and companies looks for qualified professionals to employ for short-term and/or long-term projects.

Upwork provides a lot of customer protection checks to make sure the users aren’t participating in any fraudulent activities such as scam and poorly delivered services. This is one of the reasons I have gone to love the platform so much that I have to subscribe to  some of their categories in order to receive newsletter(s) once there is a job posted in that category.

Other Unique Features:

Provides various skill test to help employers employ only proven talents. Also have an option to get your account verified to help curb scam and improve honesty from the employers perspective. You can read more about their premium features by visiting their official website.

Update 2018: We’ll like to mention that Elance and Odesk has been merged together, hence their omission from this list. They’re now fully part of UpWork; the big freelancing website.

#4 Fiverr

Fiverr as the name implies is just a micro-freelancing site where you post services and job starting from $5, you get paid once your services is ordered.

Services in Fiverr is called gig that is to say that one gig is equal to $5 in fiverr, you can also offer services in multiples of gig if you are above level 1. Users are also allowed to request for services that aren’t yet posted by any user or a service they are willing to purchase.

Other Unique Features:

Fiverr just like the previously mentioned freelancing websites has got features that are just peculiar to it. You can see those features from their official website.

#5 Freelancer

Freelancer works just like Upwork, but provides more flexibility by giving you updates on any skill or expertise you specified while registering with them.

Also the competition at freelancer is less compared to what you will normally get with the top big guns out there, thereby making it very easy for one to bid on jobs without strict competition from the others.

Other Unique features:

I normally see both elance and freelance to be sharing same premium features except otherwise stated in their official website.

#6 Gigbucks

Gigbucks works just like fiver, only that you can offer services from $5 to $50 only. They are both micro-job or freelancing website, You can earn upwards of a thousand dollars monthly from fiverr and gigbucks ‘cos of it’s large user base which have earned it the popularity it have got today.

Other Unique Features:

Gigbucks just like SEOclerks accepts both paypal and alertpay as their preferred means of payment, hence making it easy for both buyers and sellers to shop safely without being scammed. Other features can be seen from their official website.

## Odesk

Odesk is a very popular freelancing website that you can use to sell or buy the services of programmers, designers and I.T specialist. It can also come handy for freelance writers as there are always many jobs in this categories for one to choose from.

  1. Hi Obasi,

    Ah…your post brought back good old memories of the time when I started my career as a professional freelance writer, before I became a blogger. ALL of these sites I’ve visited, except for 1-2 that sound new, and each one of them is a great place for those seeking a freelancing job I’d add. Of course, now I don’t visit any of these are work pours on it’s own, which happens when you’ve been writing for a long time and build relationships with clients who keep coming back if you are good.

    I started off with O’desk, and that is the most euthentic website of all I think, or perhaps it really DID work well for me. Yes, as a beginner you need to keep your rates low, but within no time you can reach great heights too. Similar is the case with Elance, Freelancer, and the others.

    I’ve yet to try out Fiverr as I’ve heard a great deal about it. I do have friends who are using their services, though there are both pros and cons about it, or perhaps it depends on who you choose there, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    • Thanks Harleena Singh for being here again today, at times it is always awesome seeing your comment and contributions here.

      It is very true about having many steady clients that keeps coming when you always offer them worthy services, you can’t imagine the chain of returning clients you will grow to get after establishing yourself strongly in your field.
      Freelancing with these sites can be time consuming most of the times too, this is while we try to offer only the services we can quickly deliver without taking out real bunch out of our time

  2. I have heard so much about Fiverr, when I eventuality think of considering freelancing, Fiverr would no doubt be automatic pick. Putting it on your list equally shows that what I have been hearing is valid. Thanks for this list buddy. :)
