Are you tired of navigating complex platforms to find the right freelancer for your project? Look no further! In this article, we explore the intricacies of this freelancer database while providing you with a shortcut to streamline your hiring process.

Freelancer is a site that connects individuals with freelancers for various projects. However, the traditional method of hiring through the platform can be cumbersome, involving multiple steps and payments. Let’s break down a more straightforward approach.

Simplifying the Search

Bypass the Platform: Instead of navigating the platform’s search engine, just search for freelancers directly. For instance, hunt for Java developers with ease using the X-ray method: “ portfolio Java.” You can build upon that string to source whatever industry you’re looking for. Sometimes, however, the platform doesn’t give you every last bit of information to email them, so that’s where other solutions come to play:

Reverse Image Searching: Right-click on a freelancer’s picture to locate them easily. This method can help verify the authenticity of profiles. For added security, perform a quick Google search on the freelancer’s picture to ensure authenticity and potentially find more contact information.

Social Media: Notice that every user has a unique username? Well, there’s an extremely likely chance that this name is also the name they use all across other platforms…and maybe even LinkedIn.  You can use a chrome extension like Social Friend Finder to see what comes up across all the big platforms. This way, you can get completely off and message them directly.

Freelancer offers a simplified and efficient method to find and hire freelancers. By bypassing the conventional platform procedures and utilizing smart search techniques, you can streamline your hiring process and connect with the perfect freelancer for your project, or even hire them permanently!
