Freelance platforms in general are really only a springboard, in my opinion.

That being said, Fiverr is not only great for brand awareness but also for making a decent bit of many. That's if you're good.

I'm absolutely not a fan of bidding sites. It is a horrible race to the bottom. I keep profiles on these sites more as a low-key form of advertising. If a decent project comes along, I grab it if I have a spare second. Would never rely on them.

freelacne websites become not only stressful they are annoying when you bid, perks of being a graphic designer you can be part of contest they weigh not only well but also give you freedom in your area of expertise.
