I know two who win projects from freelancer websites, however the competition is fierce on there. They may have taken time to get a track record.

Some guy sells 1 in something projects.

How do these guys win big projects? $15000 jobs?

How do they network?

Your insights appreciated.

I'm a software engineer.

You're better off improving your skills and getting a full-time job.
Unless you're extraordinarily good at sales, which is not common for coders, you're going to be hustling a lot. It's not worth it.

I had a 12k contract once. I got rid of it, I make over six figures in my day job and it's not too hard or time consuming, why bother with the client work?

Honestly, I got my biggest contracts through connections to old full-time jobs.

Who can do design, development, and sales at the same time? A unicorn. I actually can do all 3, but I only enjoy the development side of things.

For pure "web designers", this is a bit different. Design is easier than development, you can just hand it off, there's nothing to maintain...
There's no money in being a designer though.

Build something that scales well if you have web development skills. An app you can get investors behind, for example...
Time does not scale well.
