Upwork is one of the most famous platforms for freelancers to find a job. The good news is - it's easy to use and you can start as soon as today!
How to build a successful profile? How to find the first paying client? How to build your reputation and find the best fit jobs? And what to do in case of a bad review?! These are only few questions I'm looking through in this Upwork Success Guide.
I've been a proud Upwork freelancer since March 2015 when I just came up with the idea "I need to get into freelancing now" and I really did. While still self-learning a graphic design, I started to get my first paid freelance gigs within a few days of signing up on the platform. It took me no time to realize that getting a real-deal job on Upwork isn't a joke. It takes dedication and knowledge. And you have to understand how the principles of the platform work and what is the motivation behind freelancers & employers on this platform.
With more than 30 successful clients on Upwork all these tactics are what I've learned in the past 2.5 years. And I'm here to share it all with you so you can get started on Upwork without a hustle!
My name is Ieva! I'm a graphic designer, digital marketer and passionate digital nomad. I started right out of high school when I found my passion in traveling and knew that it's something I want to be doing all the time. After taking on different job offers through the Europe, I finally admitted - having a normal job is not my thing. I needed the freedom to travel, to share my creativity and to work with clients I want to be working with the most. That's how I found out about freelancing, learned graphic design from zero and built my own successful freelance business.
Now I help aspiring digital nomads and new freelancers by creating a helpful content day in and day out. I write weekly blog about topics like blogging, freelancing & business. I have online course for aspiring freelancers. And I'm also Instagram obsessed.
I've build my online empire without knowing a thing but learning it all and I truly believe that everyone can do that! That's why I'm here - to share everything I have learned!
