So, I seem to have fallen into this trap where I can’t get out of these race to the bottom clients. It seems like the only opportunities I can find are the type clients and agencies that only want to pay the least amount as possible.
I’ve been working professionally with WordPress for about 5 years now. I can build custom themes, custom plugins, work with APIs, work with JS libraries, etc. and I know I have the experience and skills to land better-paying jobs and gigs but I just can’t seem to find them.
I can barely get by with these $200-$300 low-end gigs. I know that there are better-paying jobs out there but where do I find for them? Is there some super secret job posting site that I’ve not been told about yet or some club I need to join? All the job posting sites I go to are these clients that want a full-on e-commerce with custom API integrations etc. for $1000. I mean the amount they are willing to pay is ridiculous for the amount of work they ask for.
Also, I would like to work for sometype of agency (freelancing is starting to get to me), but I rarely ever come across remote job postings. I need to look for remote work because there are no opportunities in my area.
I guess I’m asking if anyone has any good tips on finding decent work? I know I can do the work but I just can’t find the opportunities.
