What seems to work best when identifying the freelance work you want to pursue?

Deoends what you are promoting...Sparehire, guru, upwork (pick and choose), Craigslist (answer full time optys offering contract work)...obviously don't step on your firms clients. You need to stand out. Once you hook a few clients, they keep coming back


@EY User OP, I used to get leads at conferences and word of mouth. The key is having a strong personal brand, that's what going to break the ice.


Do some dog shit (low pay) work, build rep, leads will come...


Flexibility, in termsof woeking remotely, is key for me


For the folks who do freelance work, do you do more consulting / advisory (get on the phone and talk) or project work (deliverable based work)? What are your thoughts on a platform that focuses on video-conference based advisory work - and not the bid on project type of work?


See what you are good at and leverage strengths. Sign up for multiple "freelance" sites and other avenues, directly address needs. Have a good pitch.

Any recommendations on freelance sites, based on your experience?
