While there's nothing easy about working, not all jobs are created equal.
And the best way to find that out is through freelance job sites.
People here are either untalented or got too much on their plate to waste any time on boring mundane tasks. My money is on neither btw. 😉
Other times its companies and businesses trying to keep their operational costs low.
And as a result, seek to outsource this work to freelancers for a small completion fee rather than hire someone on a full-time basis.
On the other hand, being a freelancer affords you the luxury to work when, where, with, and for as much you want.
And also without having to deal with annoying bosses and co-workers for an insufficient fixed monthly pay.
Not a bad deal if you ask me, because it's a win-win situation.
But if you're to tap into this market and make a nice easy side income (I recommend), you'll need the relevant skills.
You can get 2 Months Free Access to 23k+ Premium Classes on SkillShare.
After, it's just a matter of listing your services up for sale or pitching to ready customers on the job sites and you make that dough.
What you can sell on these freelance job sites is so vast, that you can take advantage of Arbitrage and earn without doing the actual work. 🙂
You get the point, there's easy work with easy pay. But on which Freelance sites?
Don't worry, I got you with 5 of them. But only the best ones that will actually pay you your dues without so much as a hiccup.
So are you ready?
Let's jump in!

The 5 Best Freelance Job Sites For Beginners In 2020 To Make An Easy Side Income.
Regardless of your skill/s level, you can find monetizable opportunities in one, if not all, of the freelance job sites listed below.
If you're looking for an easy start freelancing online, even as a beginner, start with Fiverr.
The range of services (Gigs) you can offer to hungry buyers here is unlimited. From re-selling PLR products (easiest) to casting spells and whatnot.
You simply list your Gig, fulfill orders, and cash out every 14 days after buyers accept.
The lowest you can price your gig is $5 (Five-rr). Even so, I recommend a $10 minimum.
They also have a pro version if you get super talented for even bigger paydays.
Visit there site below to see what others are doing to get paid and what you can offer as well to make bank.
Upwork is my second recommendation for bigger paydays, if you can get in that is.
This is because it favors specialists more than random know-it-alls and as a result more professional.
You don't get to list your gigs here. But rather, bid on projects you qualify for, and the customer picks out their favorite out of all they get.
If you don't like to be put in a box, in terms of what you can and can't do, Fiverr is your choice. Otherwise, make that profile sparkle for opportunities.
And just because you got accepted in as something you're not, doesn't mean you don't get paid.
An option at your disposal is to outsource the task on Fiverr and take home the difference (arbitrage). If not, level up your skills for Free here, [aff] and do the job.
With 39 million registered users and 16 million total jobs posted in over 1350 different categories, Freelancer is full of profitable opportunities.
All the way from coding, research, and writing, to design, SEO, and marketing jobs.
They also have contests unlike with the two above, where the winner takes all.
Though this is usually competitive, winning a few of these monthly could prove lucrative.
And like with Upwork, you must pitch to potential clients to win jobs.
Note: Free beginners only get 8 bids per month with optional upgrades. But you also get to enter contests.
Either way, Freelancer is a solid and trustworthy freelance site to find high-paying jobs to do.
Do you feel like a Guru in your freelance skills? If so, then Guru could be a good fit.
Guru is all about quality and features competitive skills from engineers and architects to lawyers and finance gurus.
Coding, marketing, designing, writing, and translation skills among others, are also in demand.
And with over 3+ million worldwide members and $250+ million paid to its Gurus. Guru sure is the place to be to acquire upfront paying clients and making money.
So sign up, complete your profile, get those skills to work, and get paid. 🙂
Note: As a freelancer on the free plan, you get only 10 bids per month, with optional upgrades for more bids.
5. People Per Hour.
Committed to empowering people to live their work dream, is People Per Hour.
PPH has been in business now 11 years, connecting serious clients with capable freelancers, on a per hour or project basis, with great success.
And when I say capable, I do mean it. You have to complete an online application which is reviewed by their moderation team before getting the okay to freelance.
Once accepted though, you find work the usual way; directly, manually, suggested, and through custom packages.
You also gain access to project stream. This will help you conveniently collaborate with and serve your clients better.
Note: You only get 15 free proposals per month, but can optionally buy more.
Final Thoughts. Does Freelancing Work?
Among the fastest ways of making money online, freelancing is one of them. It's super reliable and outright works.
So there's no question about “If” you can make money freelancing online, but what you want to be doing while making that money.
If freelancing isn't working for you, then ask yourself what it is you're not doing, and fix it ASAP.
Another thought for crushing it with freelance work is to always over-deliver. And one way to do that is by giving away a bonus to your customers.
Custom bonuses always work best, but if you don't want to do the hard work :), source-related PLR products to give.
Read this post if you don't know what PLR (private label rights) digital products are.
And on another note, please and please, for your own peace of mind, regardless of what freelance work you do, have your own blog on the side.
You can use it to promote your services wherever they are and make your own loyal clients that way. But that's not all there is to it though.
Third-party websites are not your own and can suspend your freelance account at any time and at their own discretion. Leaving you high with nothing.
Having your own blog as a backup is thus the smartest thing to do, not only for the above reasons but for others more.
So get your hosting which includes a free domain, install WordPress, and start securing your money.
And by the way, if you want to create profitable websites that you can sell for $$$$$ later, I recommend this platform for learning.
Alternatively, see how you can also flip simple websites on the side to boost your side income further with as much as $1000 per month.
I didn’t mention this, but this course here shows you how to bank daily freelancing doing things differently using an unknown platform.
I hope you got tones of value from this post and if so, comment below your thoughts.
That's it from me today with the 5 best freelance job sites for beginners to work on and make a nice easy side income online in 2020 and beyond.
Thank you for reading through, I really appreciate you.
And as always my friend,…
