I'm new and I need some advice please ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ

Good morning everyone, I hope everyone is well. Please I need help with setting my rates. I'm still a student but I want to start working as a translator to earn some needed extra cash, all my cash in most cases. Now, I don't have half a mite of experience as the other translators on Upwork have so I set my rates quite low, at $6 because I feel that I might get more clients, as a student with a rate like that ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€:female_sign:. I intend adding an introductory video later, im thinking that it might justify an increase in my rates, but I just wanted to ask you guys to get more clarity on this issue of lack of experience, rates and just what to do to actually make money on here, as a student.

Hi Nonyelum,

 

Here are some tips on how to get started on Upwork:
  • Complete your profile: Take time to provide accurate and complete information about yourself and your skills. This will help clients find you and determine if you're a good fit for their projects.
  • Add your portfolio to your Upwork profile: If you have work samples and past projects, add them to your Upwork portfolio. It gives clients an idea of your skills and experience.
  • Propose your services: Browse through the projects in the marketplace and apply for projects that interest you and align with your skills. Your proposal should include your experience and skills and why you're a good fit for the project.

Remember that getting hired as a freelancer on Upwork can be competitive, so itโ€™s important to have a strong profile and portfolio and submit well-written proposals.
 
Good luck!
