    Hi,
    I’ve just started freelancing and I’ve managed to land a few smaller jobs on Gumtree by advertising extremely low prices for my services (I’m currently trying to build my portfolio.). I was wondering if anybody had some knowledge of some good online websites/classified where I can advertise my services (preferably free). So far I’ve advertised on Australian sites but I’d be happy to post ads on overseas classifieds.

    Regards,
    Ben.

    Hi Ben,

    I am unsure of any classifed websites that you could use but I have a completely off topic question for you.

    Is your logo meant to look like the flat end of a bullet? (or am I seeing things that aren’t there?)

    Hi there,
    I’ve never seen the flat end of a bullet so if it does, it’s purely coincidental.

    If you are not concerned with making money, you could try elance or odesk or those kinds of sites.

    Craigslist is the US version of Gumtree (well other way round) if you wanted to try there.

    I understand you are building your portfolio, but I wouldn’t expect to earn much money from doing such things, I once put a job advert on Gumtree and was inundated with cheap labour :)

    wow your website is harsh on the eyes! *blinks*

    elance/guru/odesk are ways to bid on projects, but you’ll earn bugger all from it.

    Looks like a .303 shell to me!

    Seriously Ben, be real careful of bidding for jobs on the international boards, you simply cannot compete with the ‘Guy from Mumbai’ with a pirated copy of Dreamweaver who can live on fewer dollars per day than you can.

    No offence to any particular city there, it just rhymes… :)

    Cheers

    I think the best way to source for website design jobs is to look offline.

    Everywhere you go, local takeaway, hairdresser, mechanic, builder etc ask them for their business card – if there is no web address on it, ask them if they have a website! If they say no … Well Whoopachang! Now is your 20 seconds to convince them why they need one.

    PS: After you convince them they need a website and you finish the job, they are obviously going to need more business cards printed. Tell them to give me a call =)

    PPS: I use Google Chrome and your top nav bar doesn’t show up right.

    – Jake
