I'm looking forward to trying out one or even more of your suggestions once I get everything ready @DGStaff. I here there is a lot of great freelance websites to choose from and here are some that I could find.

1. Aquent

This one is available for everyone, it doesn't matter where you come from. It is open to all creative professionals and before you even start you can decide to take courses that offer training in different skills (that is if you want to). So what they do is give help to freelancers who are looking for contracts and you can do this by searching using keywords and a location or just browse all of the current job openings in your area.

2.Peer Hustle

This website uses geolocation so you can find jobs that are posted by local companies. There is an option of working in person or doing it remotely, so this is a plus for me.
Before you begin work you have to first communicate with your client so that he/she can fund the escrow account. This money can only be released to the freelancer once the client is satisfied with the work.

Upwork has changed a lot over the years. Now a days upwork has some tests and also it checks every freelancer manually for the verification. And this has reduced the amount of people logged into the upwork. Now a days very few people get passed through their system. And overall competition is a bit tough to work over there. New users would definitely struggle from what I have seen so far.

I have made some money on upwork but not on others. Among the sites mentioned above, I did not like people per hour. This site want you to deposit some money when you are applying. Why should I deposit money before I make money on the site?

Fiverr is a very popular platform that I have tried but yet to have a job from there but it really working out for some people I really like the fact that it is open to all countries and the deduction fees is same for everyone. Anyone with a good skill can work on fiverr.

I have not tried any of these, however, I have heard about these freelancer sites in fact I have even checked some of these. In my opinion, among the sites mentioned above, you need to be careful about people per hour. Even when you are working as a freelancer, you are asked to make deposit when you are bidding on jobs.
