    Hello guys.

    I am a graphic designer for like few big years, with big skills. But now I need to get clients. What is the best option to promote my services? I mean, not only "Post it on fiverr", but... what is the best method of getting to clients?

    Upwork is better if your quality is outstanding. Try to built your portfolio. Impressive one. Behance + dribble = quality client. Don't go for fiverr crap client if you hold a degree. Sorry but I hate mentality of clients at fiverr. Some may be good but mostly are unsure what they need in term of design.

    Freelancer.com is quite a good source for clients. I earned quite a whole lot from the site. Fiverr is not sustainable for you.

    Well, to be honest the only way to shine on upwork front page is to get a five star review after you did something awesome. Client dealing is an another part of upwork workstyle and believe me it is difficult than designing a master piece. I was on front page of elance for infographics without any blackhat method.

    Make sure you have a portfolio on major graphic design sites like Behance. And do you have a personal website to display your works? Your site needs to be sleek and professional so people can take you seriously. What about FB, Twitter, IG, Pinterest, Tumblr etc.? Those are good channels to connect and let people know about your work. Utilize social media correctly and jobs will come swarming your way.

    Try upwork, freelancer. You can surely get a client from there.
