Upwork is one of the biggest freelancing platforms in the world and is an excellent starting point for your freelancing career. In this session, we will discuss a proven strategy towards becoming a top-rated freelancer on upwork, this strategy comes from my own personal experience of being successful on the freelancing platform and mentoring dozens of other people who did really well on the platform.
We will talk about creating a stellar general profile and building specialized profiles for your diverse skill set, costing strategies and the heuristics for selecting the right projects. I will show you some of the winning proposals I have written and how you can use them as guides for your proposals.
We will also discuss supporting procedures, like, writing project brief w/ deliverables, scheduling review calls, getting better feedback and upselling. The idea is to build a long-term relationship with your clients for repeated and better business.
