    I’m currently working as a freelance designer at online marketplaces (like https://www.peopleperhour.com and so on) and I can’t find a way to promote my work in this certain domain -logo design, that is-

    Perhaps freelancers are not very popular for this kind of work… I’m not sure, but it seems that the most famous logos, are made by companies (with many designers).

    • I recommend create a portfolio site of your own and write good articles about logo design with in-depth information and case studies. Everyone use Google and I am sure if you write good unique content on your site you will rank higher and become popular the easy way.
