Craigslist offers classified advertising for just about everything — including freelance jobs. The main benefit is that it’s completely customizable, and everyone knows about it. This can help me reach a huge number of candidates for a freelance job posting. And freelancers can browse tons of new opportunities daily. I can even make a post to promote my freelance services. Craigslist is a location-based service. So it’s best for jobs that may require someone in a particular area, and less ideal for location-independent opportunities. However, there are third-party sites that allow me to search all of Craigslist for opportunities. And if I run a business and need a remote freelance job filled, I could post it to Craigslist in multiple cities. Craigslist postings are generally free. But there is now a charge for job postings, which varies from $10 to $75 depending on my location. It’s free to create an account and make other types of postings.
