Guru is a large freelance marketplace comparable to Upwork and Freelancer, with pros and cons similar to other mega-sized freelance platforms. There is a large range of job categories to sell services under, with clients posting a variety of gigs worldwide. However, competition among freelancers to get those gigs is fierce, which means freelancer rates can plummet. Many freelancers bid for gigs offering little money until their profile builds up reviews.
Generally speaking, Guru has less posted gigs than the other mega-sized freelance platforms, but on average the work tend to be of higher quality and better pay.
Freelancers are required to sign up for a membership. The free option allows up to 120 bids per year, with Guru taking 8.95% of your earnings. To see different membership level costs and details, click here. Clients pay up front using an escrow system to ensure freelancers are compensated.
