The internet is a beautiful thing. No longer are freelancers limited to only finding work within their geographical areas. While a face-to-face interaction with a potential client will always be unmatched in terms of effectiveness, don’t underestimate the power of finding freelance work through the web.

I’m not just talking about having a website and social media presence, I’m talking about using sites like Elance that are built specifically for freelancers. There are a lot of good (and bad) sites out there, so knowing which ones will work for you can be a bit of a challenge.
