Upwork is a platform that provides an interface to easily connect freelancers with businesses. Anyone can sign up and make proposals by telling the business a bit about themselves, before making a bid for the job. The platform is free to use, however they charge a commission on transactions between clients and freelancers.

 

Upwork is very simple to use, allowing users find jobs using a range of different search options. When creating your profile, you can select exactly what your interests and skills are to fine tune results, while the long list of filters help narrow down the jobs you see to make browsing quick and easy. Filters include job type, experience level, client history, number of proposals, budget, hours per week and project length. These can be important to get right, for example if you only have three months free but you are applying for jobs with project lengths of six months you may encounter problems further down the line.

 

A section of the website that I particularly like to refer to is the blog. Here, you can read about fellow freelancers own stories, discover expert tips and advice, learn about different marketing strategies and how to demand higher rates for your work. New articles are posted weekly, making it a infinitely resourceful place to gain insight into the world of freelancing, and find out if it is something that would suit you before getting started. All this content and the other features of the website can all be accessed via the free mobile app, available on both iOS and Android.

 

One potential drawback that I have encountered when using Upwork to work and travel is the exceedingly high commission that the platform charges. On work under and up to $500 USD, they charge a commission of 20%, meaning you will have to sacrifice a significant amount of your income.

Pros
  • Simple to use with whole host of different filters to sort results
  • Blog posts provide important insight into world of freelancing
  • Mobile app allows you to access content and apply for jobs on the go
Cons
  • Very high commission charged on work under $500 USD

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
