35 Best Places to Find and Hire Freelancers

Why should you hire a freelancer?

There are two very valid reasons I can think of. First, it reduces cost. You do not have to keep paying when there is no work.

Second, you get access to a wide range of talents. If you do not like the work of one freelancer, you can hire someone else very quickly. This saves time as well.

You can always think of other good reasons if you have time.

Instead of focusing on why to hire a freelancer, let me turn your attention to a list of places where you can find exceptionally talented freelancers.

I am never claiming that these places have only talented freelancers. That cannot happen. There will some who are callous, irresponsible, and do not know what they are doing. Their talent is as good as ‘non-existent.’

You, as a hiring manager, need to filter out the bad crowd and focus on the skimmed cream. You need to interview them and ask for work samples to further narrow down your search.

I guess, you already know the drill.

So, let us save our precious time and get straight to the list of best places to find and hire freelancers.

Description automatically generated with low confidence

UpWork is perhaps the most popular name. With a collective list of 12 million freelancers waiting to get your job done. UpWork is not a specialized platform. So, you can find freelancers who can create videos to those who can accomplish complex coding tasks, to those who can work only on data entry tasks.

Post a job, and you will find someone or the other having experience in the relevant field. Sometimes it may take hours for the first bid to show up, and sometime, you can get dozens of proposals within a few minutes. It all depends on the complexity of your job as well as your budget.

You can decide to go for a fixed pricing model or an hourly pricing model. The hourly pricing model is perfect if you are unsure about the work volume, or if you are unsure about how much time it will take to complete the work.

You will find all kinds of talents on Upwork. Writers, designers, animators, video creators, data entry professionals, translators and transcribers, engineers, coders, doctors – you name it and UpWork has someone or the other for you.

Your money will be safe. You start by hiring a freelancer and putting the money in Escrow. UpWork will hold the money on your behalf. Once the freelancer completes the work and you accept it, you can request UpWork to release the fund and pay the freelancer.

As always, the hiring process is all dependent on you. You may or may not choose to interview the potential freelancers. However, it is advised that you do to prevent potential hiccups during the project.

There is no pricing model. You are free to choose the price for your project but be reasonable. Do not offer an exceptionally low price for something big. You will not find people willing to work for you.

Once you hire someone, you need to fund the project and put the money in escrow with Freelancer. Upon successful completion, you need to release the fund so that Freelancer can pay to the person who worked on your project.

#3. PeoplePerHour

Description automatically generated with medium confidence

Fiverr is not like the usual freelancing platforms where you will publish your job requirements and wait for freelancers to bid on your project. Rather, it is the exact opposite.

Freelancers of Fiverr post their exact offering with a price quote. You browse through the listings and hire the one you like the most.

On Fiverr, freelancers will post gigs like “I will design your logo with 5 iterations,” “I will give a voiceover to your video,” etc.

If you decide to hire from Fiverr, make sure that you are asking the prospective freelancer to show work samples. Unlike Toptal, you will find freelancers of all skill levels. Some may be rookies with no bona fide experience, while others may be highly experienced.

You need to find the right person else; you will be disappointed. So, take your time!

The name Fiverr comes from the fact that gigs offered by freelancers start from $5. However, that does not mean that you cannot find freelancers charging thousands of dollars. It all depends on the complexity of the job they are offering.

Many business owners depend on Fiverr for their small tasks that they need within a brief time frame. Usually, Fiverr is perfect if you are looking for an inexpensive freelancer for a small project.
