Viable Alternatives to Guru.com or Upwork.com in 2016


Although it is no longer the freelance giant it once was, Freelancer.com has been in the game longer that most of the other freelancer sites. There are still a wide variety of projects to bid on with several different catagories.


The subreddits /r/Workonline and /r/slavelabour have dozens of freelance jobs posted daily. There are also dicussions that may lead you towards full time online employment. Beware of the occasional trolls lurking about.


Weworkremotely.com has several new postings every day. The jobs are for the college educated and experienced freelancer job the jobs are expected to be high paying and stable

Remoteok.io has new job postings updated every day. Most of the jobs posted seem to be related to development or design.

 

Outsourcely.com is very similar to the format or Odesk or Upwork. There are hundreds on new remote jobs posted every day so it is worth checking out. The employers on this site are mainly looking for long term employees than short projects.

 

With PeopleperHour.com, there are many new fix priced jobs to search for every day. It would be a good idea to create a high quality profile and gain 5 star reviews since most of the high paying employers search for freelancers directly.

  1. I just saw your project on Freelancer — so it does work. I will be placing a bid there under the username BestForResults. I think it is great you are providing information for expatriates. I am currently living in Mexico and loving it. Here are a few other sites I have seen but not really explored because I recently started on Freelancer and am placing my efforts there for the time being.
    //www.simplyhired.com/, //www.ifreelance.com, //www.demandmedia.com, //www.guru.com,
    //www.upwork.com, //www.peopleperhour.com, //www.project4hire.com, //www.freelancewritinggigs.com, //www.referralkey.com, and //www.flexjobs.com

    It would be interesting to see reviews and I also hope a few people comment with their experiences with various sites.

  2. With so many freelance jobs out there as well as new workers, you may need help finding the right match. With so many freelancers doing work in the US and around the world, a freelance marketplace has evolved. Employers are the demand, freelancers the supply. Several job sites have risen to connect the buyers and sellers in this market for a profit by providing a streamlined platform that removes many of the complications of freelancing.
