SO WHY FREELANCING IS GOOD?
A couple of moments for those who are just making their first steps on the way of freelancing and not quite good yet in this subject.
Freelance is a way of cooperation between the customer and the contractor on a contract basis without hiring to the office.
A freelancer is a non-state hired worker, who receives money for a specific task.
Freelance Exchange - this is a website, where freelancers hanging out. And on such a website, you can find a job or hire someone.
If you decided to become a freelancer – you should go to this exchange website, register as a freelancer, fill out the profile in accordance with your specialization, find work there, do it, and get money.
SO. HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN ON THE UPWORK?
Here you go in «find work», there are projects that match your skills. If you choose some work then you need to write your commercial proposal with examples of your work.
(For more details on how to make a good commercial proposal offer, I'll record the video in the future.)
On other websites, of course, you should not pay immediately - but there everything is arranged so that if you do not upgrade your account – your chances of earning something are almost zero.
THERE IS ALSO A SYSTEM FOR IMPROVING YOUR ACCOUNT FOR MONEY.
But at first, you can easily work without it. I worked on a free account for more than a year and everything was ok.
THESE ARE THE MEMBERSHIP PLANS.
WHAT ADVANTAGES WILL IT GIVE YOU?
NUMBER OF CONNECTS PER MONTH
Connects - these are points that limit your ability to apply for work. Each month you get a certain amount and every time you make a job application, some of them disappeared (from 0 to 5). Usually, they take 2. Connects doesn't remove if the client invited you or rehired you.
THERE ARE 2 METHODS OF PAYMENT - HOURLY AND FIXED PAYMENT.
And here is described how the upwork can protect your money. For the hourly payment, you are guaranteed to be paid for every hour that you have worked. Mooney will be automatically withdrawn from the client’s bank account. And for a fixed payment, you are given a guarantee that you will take your money if you will work via the "Mile Stones" system.
That is, the work is divided into stages - the client reserves in the system money for the first stage payment. You see it, and only after that you start work. When you have finished the first stage, approve with the client and, after that, money from the deposit goes to your account, after which you can already withdraw.
About how to withdraw money, I'll tell you in the next video - I do not want to make the video very long. I'm very upset when I find a video with the subject I need, turn it on, look at the timeline, and understand that there one guy who is going to speak for 2-hours - so I close this video immediately. I won't do that. My videos will be as laconic as possible =).
WHAT WILL THE PAID ACCOUNT GIVE YOU ?:
YOU WILL NOT BE BANNED BECAUSE OF INACTION.
Yes - there is such a motivation to work hard). It is possible that you can be banned if you do not do anything for a long time.
YOU CAN BUY CONNECTIONS.
Once a month, your connections are updated (usually the 20th of the month). All unused connects carry over to next month and but the total quantity can not be more than 140.
YOU CAN HIDE THE INCOMES
- here they write that it is not advisable to do this, because the researches show that this can lower your profit. I do not understand the meaning=) - I hide mine.
AT THE STAGE WHEN YOU RESPOND TO THE PROJECT, YOU CAN WATCH THE PRICE AT WHICH OTHER FREELANCERS ARE READY TO DO THIS WORK (MINIMUM, AVERAGE, AND MAXIMUM).
YOU CAN MAKE A PERSONAL URL.
