Thank you for reaching out and welcome to Upwork! I think it's best for you to start with the basics. Go through this Upwork Academy, It has an interactive suite of courses and tools for helping you succeed on Upwork. You'll find topics from best practices for choosing your profile headline and advice to help you get started.

Hello am new to upwork..i need someone who can walk with in upwork 

Hi Mayur,

 

Thanks for your reply. For 2 months, I have been bidding for projects at high prices and low prices and no luck. Updated my profile by reading Upwork academy materials. I am disappointed as only spammy client messages I received twice, thought it was a real job opportunity and spent hours answering their questions, and waste of time they were frauds, and scams. I am not sure if I should proceed on this platform again. 

I am new to this platform and like you have bid for projects at high and low prices too. Unforunately, I have not found any luck at all. I am hoping that I may find that elusive project soon but I have also received client messages that are either a scam/pyramid scheme. I will give it a few more tries before I decide on whether to continue here or not. I have had huge respect for Upwork as it seems to be the go-to site for legit freelancing works, but it seems the scammers have stepped up their game as well. 

Yes help me please with the stuff.

 

hi Iskandar

I experience the same thing on Linked IN and have tried googling the companies who contact me to determine if it is spam.  I wonder if that is something you think might work, or if you've tried to do the same.

HI ! 

I used upwork for my logo & start up ideas for my company I started two years ago. The side that clients see is very cool and informative. It was a very easy & clean procedure. I even gave the graphic designer a great review. I wonder if we are allowed to push ourselves in social media or if we can just get a badge for our Linkedin profiles?  Where else are you advertising that you are here?  

I well joint in your project

Hi to you all,

 

I'm doing writing, copy and paste etc. Whatever might befall me and I can master, it, I will do. From South Africa but planning to come visit. With excitement and a lot of anticipation I joint this platform, jip to make money, but that is not the real reason, it is to grow on my knoledge, my skills, my ability just to name a few. I'm a old student (56) and new to a lot, but don't believe you can't teach a old dog new tricks, looking forward to the possibilities that will arise; patiently, they will come.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be in this group and platform.

Hello,

I'm a multidisciplinary artist based out of Pune, India. I'm an actor, voice actor, speech and drama coach and a musician. However I'm mostly looking for voiceover and voice acting gigs on UpWork.

One of the main learning I need to take from others here is how to build myself and my career as a freelancer on Upwork.

I take inspiration from a variety of things. While i have my favourite musicians and artists, my main source of inspiration comes from nature and anything to do with it.

Hi there I'm Samantha ๐Ÿ™‚

 

I'm a freelance literary editor and I reside in Cape Town / South Africa. 

Hoping to expand my skills and meet like-minded people who I can also get inspiration and advice from who have been in this field longer than I have. 

 

In regards to inspiration - staying positive, creative and active with constant goals keep me moving. On top of that, hubby is a writer/director so he inspires me to grow in the artist field on all levels as I assist him with editing; copy-writing and conceptual writing and art ideas. I'm also an artist and photographer - working on expanding and perfecting my concept artistry as it's definitely a passion. 

 

Glad to be here and I look forward to sharing this journey with you all.
