    There are several Freelance sites where you as a freelancer can register onto and make money without having to pay a dime.

    The first I would mention is Freelancer. With millions of members all over, the world, it could be quite hard for you as a newbie to get started out but not impossible.

    Fiverr is another site and one of the best so far. All you need do is register on the site, place your gigs, and wait for buyers to come and purchase. You could also advertise on social media for better views.

    Upwork is yet another but a very professional site. You would have to be really good to work on Upwork and there are proficiency tests to ensure that you meet up to standard.

    Several others abound but these three tops the list.

    Thanks for your comment CurtWriter.
    I know about freelancer and fiverr. I never knew upwork existed.
    I am part of freelancer but I realized you have to make a subscription before you can enjoy full benefits thus making it more tedious and frustrating.
    Perhaps there was something I wasn't doing well on freelancer.
    I will try it again though.

    I have done an extensive amount of research on this subject as well. I have noticed that most freelancer sites are very exclusive, and nearly impossible to make a decent amount of money on. If you aspire to be a professional writer as your full-time job, then doing a little bit of freelancing on some websites is not the way to go. I would recommend that you start your own portfolio online and submit the portfolio to potential clients. This way you could still achieve the freedom that comes with freelancing while becoming your own brand separate from a third party site.

    Curlygirlangel I love your proactive approach! That really keeps you in the driver's seat. Do you have any suggestions on marketing yourself? Do you reach out to each potential client individually, or use adwords or SEO and the like?

    Freelancer, fiverr, upwork and guru.com are good websites for freelancers, the advantages are that there are lots of jobs being pasted on their job boards daily and their payment system is quite good since they all accept paypal, but most are low paying jobs and the presence of so many competitors makes it hard to make money on this sites without going premium best is to personally search for websites that employ freelancers in your niche and apply directly rather than this middle men job boards.

    This is very informative.... I have tried sites like Upwork, it's very good but it is difficult as a new person to book a job because of the numerous competitors.

    The best freelancer sites in the world that I know of are as follows:
    • Freelancer.com
    • Upwork.com
    • Peopleperhour.com
    • Guru.com
    • Fiverr.com
    • Fourer.com
    There are several other freelance sites apart from those listed above. You need to visit each of the site and familiarize yourself with their peculiarities and how they essentially work before you end up making your selection. I wish you success in your search.

    The two freelancer sites I used that really pays are Freelancer.com and Upwork.com

    With these sites you can create your account for free and get starting to work depending on your preferred niche.
    However, one thing I learned from online freelancing sites is that you have to have a working Paypal to get paid directly into your account. Otherwise, you will be kept hanging with delayed payments.
    And be careful which employer you want to apply for, there are some who pays either very cheap, very delayed and sometimes you do not get paid at all.
    However, if you get one employer that is good, then payment should not be a problem.
    Goodluck!
