Freelancing Guide For Newbies

Number of people start Freelancing, but they don't get orders, and fail in first step.

When you start freelancing keep following things in the mind.

For Fiverr

  1. Make a unique gig image. Instead of copy paste or internet image, Make an explained video for logo service. or for others you can design a good image
  2. Use proper tags, while making gig, before making please check the competitor gigs(check top 4 gigs in row of fiverr after search). Read their description, tags , titles. It'll help you to make your gig and know which tags are ranking. Select those tags which are common in ranking
  3. Make atleast 7 gigs. 
    1. Each gig should be unique. Don't make 2 gigs for same service. Like for logo design. You can offer different types of logos in each gig. (Mascot Logo, hand drawn, vintage, minmal etc. )
  4. Don't make short description gigs. Write a detailed description in your gig. 
  5. As new seller you can offer 2 concepts  etc. It'll attract the buyers.
  6. Keep prices normal (Not much low, neither higher.) 
    1. For simple minimal logo You can start from $10.
  7. Make gig pricing package. Fiverr offers 3 pricing plans. Explain it very well for buyer
  8. Keep your profile online, by using Chrome super autoreferesh extension. You can automatically reload a tab. Set 5 minutes for it. 
  9. Check for buyer requests, apply on them. Offer them free mockup. Keep your proposal to the point, ask question in proposal. 

For Upwork:

  1. Optimize your profile, add relevant skills.
  2. In portfolio, add proper thumbnails.
  3. Don't offer low rates. For new freelancer on upwork. Keep your price starting from 5/hour atleast. After getting 1-2 contracts. You can increase it.
  4. If you've free profile. Then only apply 1-2 proposal maximum in a day.
  5. Same here, offer client free mockup. 

Thing to consider:

  • For girls, they don't want to use their pictures (which is good thing) but instead of using internet images, or any random image. Design your unique avatar / logo and use it as profile pic.
