Recommendation for advertising myself for freelance work

Hi all,

I'm thinking of advertising my services for sale on a site such as Fiverr or Upwork etc, to earn a bit of income on the side. The main thing I will be offering is custom web scraping / data mining. It's been years since I'd advertised on any of these sorts of freelance websites, I'm sure a lot has changed over the time.

Does anyone have any recommendations on which site would be the best to get exposure and get some jobs in?

Thanks

  • Try blackhat forums, as this kind of activities are never used by legit customers on Fiverr and
    Upwork. You can probably advertise there under the general/programming category, but nobody
    will be looking for it there.

    Thanks for that, maybe it's a starting point - I'm keen to find somewhere to advertise my services where someone will be looking for it. :smile:

    Hmm, I did forum scraping for my college professor's company in 2009.
    It's technically freelancing as I have graduated from college at that time.
    Professor paid me CNY ¥200~300 per site-specific script, offered as Python API.
