The thing is there are plenty of folk that are fed up of Indian’s who do it for dirt cheap since the quality is often completely terrible.
I did UpWork and I made the mistake of going cheap. The client was terrible to the point they literally claimed I did nothing.

Also it’s possible to offer small things (automated at best) for low on fiverr and charge normal prices for upsells.

As a software engineer, I wasn’t able to find any work on UpWork even after sending dozens of proposals. I suspect it’s because there are so many low-ballers on there. Ended up going through a niche agency for startups and found a great gig in a couple of days. Fiverr was a similar situation.
