Thumbtack.com is a great for small businesses
To build up your web presence and clientele. The clients request quotes from you and there is a 5 quote limit for jobs you only pay when you send a quote and that's refunded if your quote isn't viewed within 48 hours.The cost varies depending on type of job requested like network support costs 2 credits and web design costs 9 credits. Below is the credit pricing table.
The profiles look good have a slider for images of you work and you get reviews based on you clients. Below is the client view of my profile.
