I clearly agree with you. Upwork is much better in terms of jobs and usability. But the problem with both sites is that, while you don't have lots of 5 star rated projects, the only way you can get some work from it is to go into a race with the lowest prices.

Other ways to get clients are: personal recommendation, have a great portfolio, have a great social media activity, doing some contracting work for companies.

Yes you're right! Rating is also hurdle in getting clients. You must have to start from something. also, Thanks for your suggestions I'll keep them in mind.
