Marketing Your Business
To find freelancers for my design, marketing, and administrative needs, I turn to Upwork. I find they have some of the highest quality talent at reasonable prices.
For basic assistance with simple design, creative, administrative, or production tasks, I use Fiverr. It’s cheaper than Upwork, although the quality varies greatly.
Crowdsource designs, logos, and creative materials. I used 99 designs for web design. I’ve generally found designers here to be higher quality that other freelance platforms.
