Freelancing is a kind of job, but you get paid on the basis of projects instead of monthly. If you are an expert in your job, create your accounts today on various freelancing sites like Upwork, Firewall, Freelancer and other such reputable sites, complete them in every way and start applying for the projects there.
Also learn marketing and how to take the first project on these sites with the help of Google teacher? Once the job is found, let the client do more work than expected and try to get work from him through referral. At the same time, build your website with the help of WordPress and make your portfolio better.

Once the initial success is achieved, try to get as much work as possible through referrals and at the same time keep your old clients connected to you. It is much easier to get a new job from an old client than to find a new one
Another great way for a designer to make money online is through an Online Design Contest. If you can design logos or websites and are not afraid to be rejected, then online design competitions are for you. Many companies and individuals announce a design competition on various online websites that we need such a logo or website.
Then the different designers make the design according to the instructions given in this advertisement, usually the designers cannot see each other’s design, the purpose of this is that no one should copy the design of the other.
When all the designers submit all the designs, the person who started the competition declares one design as the winner and all the money is given to that designer. Popular websites for such competitions include 99design, designcontest, 48hourslogo, logomyway.
If you are a new designer then these design competitions can be useful for you in two ways. On the one hand, you can build your portfolio by participating in these competitions, and on the other hand, you have the opportunity to learn a lot when you compare and compare your work with the best people in your field.
Another great way for a designer to earn money online is to create and sell digital products. You can create various Templates, Mockups, Actions and other such digital products and sell them on your website or through online marketplace websites such as GraphicRiver and creativemarket.
