More Sites To Help Freelancers Get Started

This article is guest blog by Sarah Lam.

Freelancing is not as easy as it seems. From quitting your day job to finding freelance projects that pay well, you need be careful in everything you do. Since freelancing is rather new in Malaysia, you might not know that there are many sites that you can try your luck in getting the best projects.

Common Malaysian sites such as Lowyat Forum and AsiaPartTime provide local opportunities but what if you want to try international projects that can be more difficult and yet more fulfilling, where do you go?

There are sites that require biddings while others are more flexible in terms of applying for the projects.

If you want to try bidding for projects you never dreamed of working on before, Elance is the best place to start.

Why Elance?

Other bidding sites include:

However, apart from having to apply for projects, you can get potential clients to approach you in a simple way.

By using Malaysia Craigslist, you can advertise your services and potential clients will be able to contact you should they be interested in your services. While this is not a guaranteed way to score freelance projects, but it is worth a try. At least I managed to get a job through my ad on Malaysia Craigslist.

The key is to post your ad in the suitable category and the right country (I.e.: Malaysia).

Wish you all the best form us.

I’ve never heard of Elance but Craigslist is pretty legit. Another site for freelancers, is a web-based time billing software that keeps track of your billable time for the client - Bill4Time.com. Time is money, folks!

I agree that freelance websites help in getting freelance projects, but what about tracking and billing clients, which, I believe is very important for all freelancers.

Hey, nice article. Next to elance and co. there are new IT-project platforms too like freelancermap.com where freelancers all over the globe will find IT-projects and jobs without paying commission fees.
