I'm working as a freelancer since end of 2011.
The first (I think) three years I worked from a coworking space every day. That was how I got all of my jobs and still get them (except for two: one was for an agency a friend of mine worked for, the other one was for someone who found me via google) - and I have always been fully booked since the beginning.

Online platforms might be helpful for some people, but I prefer to work for people I know directly or at least through a friend. That way chances that everything works smoothly are much higher in my opinion.
But I know that I have always been very lucky with my situation and that this definitely might not work for everyone.
