HOW TO CREATE AN ATTRACTIVE UPWORK PROFILE THAT GETS YOU JOBS 4
Okay. This category has the part that is most important for this work – the moneyyyy.
I will discuss Skill test and Payment.
The skill tests are not Mandatory but very important. Firstly, it adds to your profile completeness and secondly it increases your credibility, authoritativeness, and command over your skills. So, the best advice is not to skip it and try to score as higher as possible. It does not matter if you fail a test, you can retake it after a month. The skill tests relevant to your skill will be suggested for you. Write 2 first and go write others later.
MOST OF THE JOBS YOU SEE ON UPWORK WILL REQUIRE NATIVE ENLISH SPEAKERS. PLEASE ENSURE YOU DO THE ENGLISH TEST, THEY ARE ABOUT 4 FOR U.S AND U.K. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
You are expected to choose an hourly rate (this hardly holds water because most jobs have fixed prices or you have to negotiate with the client. It’s just that you need to put something there). Put an amount you are slightly uncomfortable with. I advise using from $15 upwards. The more jobs you do, the more your rate will increase.
I have clients who work with me off Upwork but I got them from Upwork. But for a start, I would advise that you do jobs on Upwork platform because it increases your job success score and gives you better option to grow and become a sought-after writer.
Sometime in the future, I will share lessons on how to cash out from your Upwork “vault”.
I really hope I have covered the most important aspects of creating a juicy Upwork profile. If and when you are setting up your profile, you encounter any issue, kindly mention me and ask your question, I will do my best to respond to the best of my knowledge.
