Category Archives: Freelancing Platforms

The Freelancing Platforms category on Freelance With Us covers articles relating to platforms like upwork, Guru, Fiverr and Freelancer. Helping you to make money freelancing. We all have our own opinions of what the best platform is. And what works for you might not necessarily work for someone else. In his book The Online Writer’s Companion (described as “the Freelancing Bible” by the Huffington Post) P. J. Aitken made his feelings known about sites like Freelancer. He is not a big fan of the platform and tries to avoid it, while guiding other freelance writers towards Upwork.

However, Aitken knows as well as anyone that all freelancing platforms are different. In this Freelancing Platforms category you will find more of his opinions on this subject. You will also find articles written by other Freelance With Us writers. They all come from different backgrounds and have a different subset of skills. As a result, they all have their own opinions on what the best freelancing platform is.
