Are you looking to make some extra money, but not sure where to start? There are plenty of freelance websites out there. They will offer you a chance at a side gig, no matter what you’d like to get into. However, sometimes knowing which freelance sites are worth visiting or signing up for can be difficult. After all, you want to be spending your time making that extra cash — not wasting it for mere pennies on the dollar.

To help you separate the good from those that might not have your best interests in mind, we’ve created this (by no means exhaustive) list. There’s a lot here, so you should click through at your own pace and see what sparks your interest. Each website offers its own set of pros and cons — often making payment easy, but including fees or other policies you’ll want to be aware of.

Forewarning: there are a lot of websites here, and plenty of opportunity. However, the freedom to choose comes with a bit of responsibility. Make sure you know what to look for before you sign any freelancing contracts.
