5 Best Freelancing Websites for Beginners

Dads with location-based jobs took a big hit when the pandemic spread in 2020. Many lost their jobs and struggled to provide for their families. If you are one of these dads, it’s time to find online freelance work that will enable you to earn a living safely at home.

What is online freelance work?

It’s any job using the internet without the requirement to work at a physical location. You can source the work online from job sites, social media platforms like Facebook, company websites, and freelancing websites.

To be clear, getting online freelance work is not like entering an employer-employee relationship. Instead, you’ll find a client who requires the specific service or skill you offer. You’ll be a contractor and help the client complete a particular project. Once you’ve completed the contract, you’re free to find a new client.

Having online freelance work also means you can get multiple clients and projects at a time. However, you must be responsible for your work and take only the number of projects you can handle. It ensures that you’ll be able to deliver the output you promised and helps build a good reputation with clients.

Now, speaking of clients, client-hunting is the first step to take when starting as an online freelancer. Where to find clients? Check out these five best freelancing websites in 2022.


This website is where most people start their online freelancing journey, as I did in 2017. Upwork is the largest online platform for freelancers and has been in the business for two decades. It has an excellent reputation for its fool-proof payment system that guarantees earnings for online freelancers.

Signing with Upwork is easy. You can create an account with your Gmail, Apple ID, or other email address. Then, build an excellent profile that will stand out and give you great visibility to clients.

A great freelancing profile will also help your Upwork account get approved because the platform has a strict account approval process. But once you get the approval, you’ll have access to all job postings from clients worldwide.


Another legit website to find online freelance work is OnlineJobs.ph. Made for Filipino online freelancers, it has many clients who offer short-term and long-term projects to web-skilled individuals. Whether you are a web developer, graphic designer, project manager, or telemarketer, you can find the perfect post that fits your experience and availability.

OnlineJobs.ph is where I met most of my past clients as a web content writer. I highly recommend starting with this platform if you’re a Filipino dad trying to transition from location-based jobs to online freelance work.

Signing up with OnlineJobs.ph is very easy. Unlike Upwork, it will not take long to get approval for your registration with this online freelancing website.


Fiverr works a bit differently from Upwork and Onlinejobs.ph. Instead of applying to job postings, you’ll sell your services on this platform, create posts (called “gigs”) with your pricing, and wait for clients to approach you. Essentially, you’re a vendor, and Fiverr is the digital marketplace where consumers can avail of your services.

But just like the first two freelancing platforms, you need to build a great profile to attract clients. That’s because Fiverr has millions of online freelancers onboard, and the competition can be tough for some popular digital services. Nonetheless, if your skills are up to scratch, don’t hesitate to register with Fiverr.


This Australia-based company connects more than 58 million online freelancers and employers around the world. With its vast database of available jobs in every skill and language, Freelancer.com is a good place to find online freelance work in 2022.

The website is pretty easy to navigate. So, don’t worry if you don’t consider yourself a tech-savvy dad. With Freelancer.com’s user-friendly interface, you can easily find the right job postings for your specific skill set.

Joining as a freelancer is also as simple as can be with this freelancing platform. With just a few clicks, you can get an instant approval for your registration and you can begin hunting for online work right away.


This is another freelancing website that has a stringent screening process. Applicants have to go through 5 levels of the vetting procedure, and only 3% get to be accepted. In short, Toptal takes only the best freelancers to provide service to its pool of high-paying clients.

Don’t lose your hope, though. Instead, motivate yourself to be part of that 3% because Toptal clients pay handsomely to freelancers. Other than that, you’ll get to brag about being part of the world’s top freelancer network. You can begin the application process by signing up here.

There you have it, the five best online freelancing websites this 2022. Just remember to be patient because signing up with these sites and building good profiles require time and effort.

Also, getting clients may seem difficult at first. But once you get the hang of it, you’ll open the door to endless opportunities that online freelance work can bring.
