Which do you recommend I start with please?
Why not use both?
You'll spend about the same amount of money on either site. But you'll note you'll probably get freelancers who are better "at their stuff" on upwork because all freelancers take tests, something which will make it easier for someone who is outsourcing work to find freelancers who not only promise they can do something well but have also proved, by passing a test, that they can.
Freelancer is different because they charge their freelancers for taking and because of that most don't take any tests.
Having worked on both sites as a Freelancer I'd recommend upwork.
+1 For freelancer.
If you are looking for quality freelancer then UpWork is the right choice for you.
I've used UpWork. Great experience with both UpWork and the freelancers there. I haven't used Freelancer so I cannot comment.
Freelancer has it's issues. The biggest one is... if he catch more valueable task - he will do it first and your job has to wait.
Upwork is costly to get someone but there are great resource/skilled freelancers. Freelancers.com is cheaper but sucks in terms of its policies. Payment policies, commission policies, hourly contract policies.
I found freelance.com a little big buggy and haven't user friendly at all.
Not at all. It's just like Facebook. You can directly contact with freelancer without need any IM.
I have accounts on freelancer as well as upwork. Both of these sites work in a similar way however, I have worked only on upwork.
I have not personally tried UpWork, but I have to say that if it can be better than Freelancer than it is worth a shot. I have had some bad experiences on Freelancer and it is just way too much hassle for me, in my opinion, and I would just rather avoid it. I would like to see a program that really can build off of it though, and so maybe UpWork will have something to add. I am curious to see what others have to say.
Freelancer is good but seoclerks is taking over the freelancing industry, their website is well designed and have many fetures.
