  • Fiverr/Upwork Freelance Agencies worth it?

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone on here use these freelance services to find clients and earn more money?
    I've been using Fiverr and Upwork for some time but with little success. The buyers on there generally want something for next to nothing, so I was wandering what other people's experience with them is like.

    I see some retouchers with a huge portfolio on these sites, sometimes over 1000 jobs (these of course are smaller jobs, not high-end projects).

    I guess the main question is, can they be used as a primary source of income?

    Let me know what you think!

    Freelance Contracts?
    by Doeringretouch
    Hello all!

    I'm in the process of starting my freelance career and want to get a contract drawn up to give to each of my future clients.

    Do you have any contracts you use? If so, are there any resources (websites, apps, etc) that you'd recommend I check out?

    Contract for Freelance Retouchers?
    by Ikiri

    I found a pretty good contract for freelance Web-Designers. With some modifications, this might be useful for retouching too:

    Open legal documents, provided and trusted by people like you. Find or upload a document, sign it for free.

    Or does anyone know a decent contract, dedicated for freelance...
