While Upwork gets a bad rap for being a melting pot of clients looking for β€œcheap” services, there are strategies that you can implement to position yourself as an expert and charge premium fees. In fact, some of their highest-rated developers charge as much as $60/hour.

That's likely to be the biggest drawback with freelancing platforms. They have a cap on the income you may get. As well as are hard competitive for professional growth.

Networking is way better and reliable in terms of projects you get and growth for a portfolio.
