Three Reliable Freelancing Websites To Hire From

(Last Updated On: January 19, 2017)

Do you have multiple projects going on in your head? Do you have a long list of things you want to accomplish on your blog, but don’t have the time or know how? Are you looking to hire and editor or a freelancing for other various projects? Then you’re in luck! Here are three different freelance hiring sites I have used in the last year with success. This blog post will mention how easy it is to create a listing, how you still have the power to reject an offer, and can even set a fixed price for your job. Take a few minutes below to read this blog post and look deeper into each one. Pick the one that suits your needs.

Three Reliable Companies To Hire From

Upwork

Upwork was the first freelancing website I joined. I needed to hire someone to fix a major coding issue I created. I am always improving code, but at the time I wasn’t doing daily backups with Cloudways, which meant trouble. I posted a job listing and after a week, I found someone I could trust, had the experience needed, and agreed to my price. This is a great freelancing company that I have never had any issues with.

It’s free to sign up with no strings attached. You can even look around and see some of the options available to its members. Visit the Upwork homepage to sign up: It’s that easy! Also, make sure you fill out all of the information fields. No one likes an incomplete profile.

Payment options include PayPal, Credit Card, and Debit Card. The only downside to this is PayPal only works in select countries, which can cause issues for potential employees.

Here Is something that will make you scratch your head. I hired a programmer to fix theme errors on my old theme Author Pro, but decided to change themes on Aug. 15, 2016. So, I ended up wasting money for the hours this person worked for me. Still, the job was done and I got more than what I asked for at no additional cost. I’d hire that person in a heartbeat if I needed custom programming done. Before you join this company, read their Trust & Safety page.

OutSource

Another great option is OutSource. I currently have a part-time staff member that I hired from this site. This is a great company and definitely my favorite out of the three listed in this post. It’s easy to create listings for custom jobs you have and you can use filters to help you find results. Outsource offers a lot of different features and makes it easy to create a contract with a freelancer. Payments are automatically sent out on Sundays, which I enjoy. This keeps me from missing a payment, jeopardizing a contract I have, or giving me a bad reputation as an employer.

Here are some features that are accessible if you become a free member of OutSource.com. Once you create a job listing, you will begin to get quotes from freelancers on the site. You will be able to accept or reject offers, as well as email the freelancer to ask them questions or get to know them a little better. It took me a while before I hired my part-time employee, as trust and independent thinking are big factors for me. I recommend you start a dialogue with a freelancer before hiring them, as this is the best way to get to know the person you will be working with.

Freelancer

Freelancer is a great place to hire freelancers from everything from specialized projects to website design. You can hire content writers, editors, designers, and plenty of other specialists. Although I have not posted a project on Freelancer since I joined in 2010, I have been actively promoting their affiliate program for many years and have never been disappointed. Check out my profile mug shot.

O boy, just noticed I live in a different town from what I have in my profile above. Time to update my whole profile! Even though I have never posted a job on Freelancer, I know on the affiliate marketer side, I do earn some good cash when I refer someone, as long as it leads to a freelancer being hired. In in the future, I hope to hire someone from this site when the need arises. That way, I can experience first hand what the process of posting a job – all the way through hiring – is like with them.
