Due to the current pandemic, it can be tough to find staff for your business. In order to stay safe from coronavirus, it is important to practice social distancing and keep your customers safe. This has undoubtedly brought many businesses to a halt. But what better time to work on your business? Update your website or advertise your business online with a classifieds site like Friday-Ad, create some blog posts for added exposure etc. Below are some great places you can find highly skilled freelancers to help out with things like Web Design, Graphic Design, Blog Post Writing – you name it, all remotely. Let’s get into it.
Of course, the first one on the list had to be Friday-Ad! You can post a job in minutes. All you have to do is place an ad and wait for the replies to come in. In addition, depending on your needs, the team at Friday Ad might be able to help you too. Whether you need help increasing your online presence or maybe you need some emails sent out – they have you covered. And that’s not all, they also provide a free online shop where you can list items for sale and make some money.
Upwork is one of my favourite places to find talented freelancers. I regularly use Upwork to get help with my blog when it comes to things like graphic design or content creation. You simply post a job listing detailing the requirements of your project as well as the type of freelancer you are looking for. From there, freelancers submit proposals for your projects. You then select your favourites based on previous work carried out via Upwork as well as their own personal Upwork profiles where they outline their skills, previous experiences and qualifications, and so on.
Fiverr is another great place to find freelancers. I like Fiverr because you can effectively buy a service without having to worry about hiring anyone. For example, if you go to Fiverr and search “Logo Design” there are literally thousands of services available and many of these providers have hundreds of 5-star verified reviews so you don’t have to worry about losing your money. The other great thing about Fiverr is that it is very cheap. As the name suggests, services start from just a fiver – $5 that is. Being able to get a logo created for just $5 (around £3-4) is an absolute steal.
When you think of Indeed you probably think it’s just a place to find full time, 9-5 members of staff. Well, this is not the case. In fact, Indeed is also another favourite place of mine that I like to use to find lots of great freelancers to help me with my projects. When creating your job listing, just put “Remote” in the location field. But be sure to include sufficient requirements as you will be inundated with applications! And logo design is just an example, you can get helpful services of all kinds!
