WordPress jobs: How To Find (Freelance) Work Without Bidding

Getting started with your WordPress based freelancing business can be quite hard.

In the early days of your freelancing business, even if you have the skill set to support your clients, chances are you might not have a client base that can back you up financially. So as a freelancer, it is crucial to use different ways of acquiring new clients who would be able to support your freelance career in the long run.


That being said, most newbie freelancers fall into the trap of making the wrong assumption that the only way to find freelancing jobs is through bidding sites such as Upwork and Freelancer.com.

In reality, bidding sites are not a good fit for everyone. This is especially who those who find the bidding process a bit challenging, or for those who do not have a strong profile on Upwork and Freelancer. In these cases, bidding on these sites is frustrating, unfruitful, and many times a waste of time and resources. In these cases, you should use as little time as possible on these sites, otherwise, you will be eating away from your productive WordPress freelancing time.
