Hiring freelancers is becoming not only more acceptable, but more attractive for many businesses. This creates an incredible opportunity for people with useful skills to start a freelance business on the side, and eventually grow that into a sustainable self-employed career. So, where to begin? I won't do logos for $5. I'm not from India, so where do I go to start my career as a Freelance designer.
If you have any advice post in the comments.

It might sound snarky, but Fiverr sounds like the place for you. I used to do quite a bit of work over there. Maybe CL with a decent portfolio. Generally the best clients refer you via word of mouth, at least that's been my experience.

I used to do some freelance work on various platforms before fivrrr got really big. part of the reason I quit was that the market seemed to shift away from freelancers back to in-house talent.

I haven't been on a freelance platform in quite a while, but from what I see on job sites in my area there are a lot of jobs available for design/marketing people.

I never bothered to build a proper portfolio while I was on the freelancing platforms, so now I am kinda starting over, doing pro-bono work or charging very little for businesses in my area.

The first step is registering, freelance sites are as follows.

www.upwork.com
www.fiverr.com
www.freelancer.com

The next is building your portfolio, once you have that it should be fairly easy to get postings. You should also make sure you have a great pitch.

The platforms are good but actually is not easy to start. It's full with indians and pakistans /no bad feelings/ who offer low-price services and of course the client would prefer to pay smaller no matter the quality. I know people who have paid double to someone just to clear up the mess after such people.  
My thought is that it's hard to start there, even if you're good you have to work kinda for free.. But you don't loose anything if you try : )

All of my freelance work was by work of mouth. Never really relied on online services, but Fiverr seems like something I could try in the future.
