Hi everyone,


My name is Matt and I wanted to let you know that Upwork is hosting a #TweetChat next Wednesday from 8am-9am PT. We’re excited to have Danny Margulies, freelance copywriter and champion of freelance success share his expertise and answer questions!


For those of you who aren't familiar, Twitter Chats are an interactive discussion centered around questions and answers on a specific topic. We’re gathering questions from the community and participants will share answers and advice with each other. To join, search for hashtag “#UPworkLive” on Twitter and participate in the conversation. You can also check out 3rd party programs like to help. 


Don’t worry if you can’t make it right at 8am, you can join anytime! 


Share what questions you would like answered down in comments and they could be asked during the event.

See you all on Tuesday!


-Matt Jensen, @MJensen, @Upwork

I really like his writing, and I'm familiar with him on Elance. What I want to know, though, is that he claimed to make $100k in a year on Elance back in Feb (I think?), and he said he was making $125/hour. Just looking at Elance stats, he seems to have dropped off and that number was for last year around mid-year. He also doesn't seem to be active here. According to his profile, he hasn't been active for a month.


It seems like he's taken his business off of Elance/Upwork, so I'd like to know why and how he transitioned off the platform to making money on his own.


I'd also like to know how he handles payments off platform. One thing I like about these sites is the escrow.

Jen, after the first few gigs, he probably found a d***d good

editor . . . (or writer) . . .

I am sure there must be an ebook success story on Amazon.

Hi Jennifer -- thanks for the kind words. I Iaunched an online course about 9 months ago, and it's grown so fast that it's been my full time job for the past few months. However I am still very active in helping freelancers (and aspiring freelancers) maximize their potential through Upwork.


Oh and for what it's worth, I actually brought my last client onto Elance, even though I met them through an "off-Elance" referral -- like you I love the escrow system and I see no reason to do business off the platform.
