  • GoDesign is a Design Contests Marketplace.
    It is a unique design marketplace, first of it’s kind in the Israeli market
    to offer a meeting point exclusively for designers to link with potential clients.

  • Great list. I recently launched WhichLance.com – the world’s first freelance marketplace comparison site. It enables freelance workers and those interested in outsourcing projects on freelance marketplaces to compare the major features of freelance marketplaces side by side, while also enabling people to rate and review the freelancing websites which they have experience of using. I hope people like it!

  • That was a great job this list! Btw the one you mentioned last (trally.com) is actually the one I got more jobs from this year, as a translator (even if the graphics of the site is awful, imho).
    Anyone from Trally around here? You should really get a good freelancer on some job board to redesign your site LOL.
    Very good post!

  • This is a great list of freelance sites, I have used many of them and found them all to be very good online places to find professional freelancers.

    I was just a bit curious as to why you never mentioned any micro job freelance sites like fiverr.com or the one we use in Canada called http://Frogerr.com These types of online freelance micro job sites are gaining in popularity and are showing people how they too can bank on their skills, talents and resources

  • Trying to find a job, but when they ask for my age, (won’t interview me unless I give it) and I tell them I’m over 50, they tell me there are many other applicants, and it seems to me there is age discrimination here…I’ve been looking for work for over eight months, now…

  • Elance is not free…just to name one…the first one you list. Elance cost almost $50 to join, which I did, only to get zero work

  • Abbie- sorry to hear you’ve gotten no work so far. As an employer on Elance, the people I’ve used were the ones who made the best (not necessarily lowest) bids on my projects, and for following projects I would just send projects to them directly on the site. That site is far too large to wait for employers to come to you until you have an extremely rare skill(set).

    Also, I did say above “Most of the sites listed here are free to use in their most basic form both for freelancers and employers, however some of the sites have fees for at least one party and most of the sites have paid premium features.”

  • […] icrunchdata.com, sologig.com, Flexibleresources.com, as they join old timers Elance and other freelance marketplaces. A new phenomenon are micro freelance marketplaces like Fiverr: The place for people to share […]

  • Check out FreelancePeople.co.uk. It’s 100% free for Freelancers and is currently running as free trial for Employers too.

  • I am the CEO of a new marketplace and I would lick to toss in our marketplace to thei slist as well. http://weblance.com . We build a project management system for building apps and plugged in a freelance marketplace functionality. Check us out! Thanks..

  • […] Where to go: TaskRabbit.com, Elance.com, Fiverr.com, 99designs.com, 3to30.com, Care.com, Freelancer.com, Solvate.com, icrunchdata.com, sologig.com, Flexibleresources.com, and other freelance marketplaces […]

  • I’d also like to suggest Microlancer. Kind of like a high-end Fiverr, freelancers set their own rates and the quality is much higher because every service is staff reviewed.

  • Hello,

    I love the fact that we are included in this article but would it be possible to add a small description? We are not the typical freelance site like an Elance or others. We differentiate ourselves in the following ways:

    Workhoppers is a matching site to hire LOCAL freelancers. No bidding!No commissions. Connect directly with the right professional. Free for Freelancers.

    THANKS!

  • Zeerk.com – is a site to find local freelancers in many countries. Zeerk a popular online portal for freelancers, Job categories include freelance writers, lifestyle, web design, appp development, graphics & design, music, audio, online marketing and SEO.

  • Great collection.

      • Hey Jacob,
        It’s a good list you put together.
        I’m not sure if my problem is choosing between a paid site or a free one. Nothing is more costly than FREE…
        My dilemma is the actual team work happening between employer and freelancer during the course of the project. Due to time difference, there is often so much delay in communicating with your freelancer or employer that it sometimes cost you your project.

        We are working on a Canadian startup called workibility where the focus will be on hiring freelancers locally or semi-locally where communication and collaboration takes place almost instantaneously.

  • We’d like to introduce our newly launched portal, Spotlancer. This is an opportunity to any freelancer to join us and increase his client base since we are in our very first steps.

    Spotlancer is built and run by us, designers who for personal reasons (health and family) needed to find a proper income working from home. We managed to earn a living working online and would like now to give the opportunity to other creative people to do the same.

    Come join us on http://www.spotlancer.com

  • LinkedIn ProFinder (www.linkedin.com/profinder) is a great resource for consumers, allowing them to leverage the power of the trusted LinkedIn network to help find the right freelance and independent professionals. This new platform provides an opportunity for freelancers to connect to qualified leads in a variety of professional services, from real estate to graphic design, while building their credibility in the field through recommendations. The site will also provide individuals and business owners the opportunity to directly hire trusted independent professionals for short-term projects.

  • We just launched a new online freelance marketplace! After spending 7 years freelancing in NYC, Palo Alto and LA, our founder aimed to create a platform that truly behooves the best and most talented freelancers. Unlike other marketplaces, we don’t take a cut of freelancers’ rates, freelancers can name their own rates and the entire experience is free for freelancers.
