Well Margarete I'm not sure if all of that was directed at me or you're simply letting out some frustration, but I certainly am not claiming to be making 5k-20k a month. You can see the stats on my profile, it's public...I'm unable to view yours. I do classify receiving all positive reviews, regularly being invited to private job postings, and continuously raising my rates over the past year as successful. Especially when starting from ground zero. The ideas listed in my article are what I attributed to that.


My profile is visible for registrated Upwork users but not here in the community because this is a public area. And yes, I was annoyed because you tried to promote your blog. The rest of my comments have not been addressed to you.

The good thing is: on those forums, Upwork systematically deletes the links to their blogs from their posts. Which is a good thing. Otherwise, the forum would have been flooded by all the get rich fast, buy my c**p coaches.

Do they really?

 

I posted a link to a blog post some weeks back, and I still occasionally see a visitor from Upwork arrive there.

 

Perhaps it depends on the nature of the site? I don't offer any services or sell anything through my blog, nor any other site it's connected to.

This started it all. I would like to stay on topic and discuss the points in my original post. If they've worked for others or not... 

 


To stay on topic, I think the 5 points are certainly helpfull for new upworkers or those with less success. For myself I have just 3 essential points.

 

1. Never apply for a job that doesn't match your expertise

 

2. Don't sell yourself, sell solutions

 

3. Respect each client

 

Overall I'm satisfied in the longrun.

Hi all,

Thank you.
