To be successful on Upwork, you need to be professional.

 

i. Get a portfolio of the niche you are interested in.

ii. Write a 'human portfolio for each job

ii. See through your client's eyes

iv. Be determined to get the job and be excellent and extraordinary

v. Negotiate a good fee, this will also encourage you to put in your best.

 

If you have a great profile that looks professional or capable, your nationality does not matter.

Upwork has rules that protect you from getting cheated out of money you worked for.

1. Clear communication where everything is talked about and agreed.

2. Money in escrow before work begins. Never start any job until money has been placed in escrow.

3. Maintain communication with your client so that you are able to meet their requirements.

Sorry you got cheated. Try again. Try to follow the rules. Be patient.

Hi,
Im also quite new here as i just joined about two weeks ago. 3 proposals is quite small to wait for replies.
Ive submitted over 10 proposals the past week, and i got 3 jobs from them.
So I’d say the more the proposals, the higher your chances.
Good luck!

Hi Onoriode, 

 

3 proposals is nothing to what you should be doing. You cn do better. Due to the new membership rules on Upwork, I'd advice you upgrade to the plus plan so you can get enough connects to apply for jobs. 

 

Also try to review your proposal writing skills. Kindly check through this thread to get some tips.

 

Kind regards,

Akinbode A.

Hi Akinbode,

I just joined upwork few days ago and I have completed two orders as a graphic designer.. When I tried to access my balance with 'Get paid', I get this information:

Before withdrawing funds, all non-U.S. persons must provide their W-8BEN tax information.

 

Legal Name of Business: (Provide the same name as shown on your tax return.)

Please, what to do? Can I just put my graphics name or do I have to kind of visit a tax office or something? Does that mean Tax will be removed on the little amount I'm making? I'm confused. Please help!
