I wanna share my own crazy experience about freelancing. Don't mind the errors wink

I recently finished my HND ( a member of Press Council- a writing crew in sch through which I used to explore and harness my writing skills without payment) at The Polytechnic, Ibadan a month ago and as every guy going for service, you will want to look for way to make an extra albeit a legitimate way. I've been hearing of fiverr for some time but coz I was busy I never considered it anyways.

Though I am working as an online PR and a Social Media Strategist for a company presently which requires me staying online 24/7. I just decided two weeks ago (this November) to join fiverr ( I was not expecting myself to start earning immediately coz I know my category is already saturated) but I registered anyways so as to see how it works and explore. ( Content Writing, Essay and Article Writing, Creative Writing plus editing)

I asked a couple of friends for some tips and did a lot of researching online.

The first gig ( The guy just chatted me up- It was a custom order) got me a job of 20$ which was even higher than what my gig described which I thought was a lie until I saw the mail confirming it (I Just wrote an essay). No revision and the guy paid immediately and gave a great review.

My second order from the same guy coz he liked my work is now 150$ which I am working on ( he even pleaded for me to collect the amount).
Me self con dey form boss grin ( registered this month and 2 orders)

More work is still coming and i still have my PR job smiley

Bottom Line: Whatever skill you are good at , always build and harness it coz you do not know when it will pay off( Writing is paying off for me now) .
Do not freak out on your first order and always drop a kind note to your buyers.

Be very good at your job as that is what will make them to come back.
Get good reviews

More money to all freelancers. Jah bless.

Here is my testimony on freelancing;

i have always known about freelancing and upwork ever since my university days but never took it seriously or pictured it as a source of income, not until after my NYSC, when reality dawned upon me that i had to irk out a living for myself. Graduating in the buhari era was not funny at all, the recession had kicked in strongly with cost of living on the rise, i spent a lot of jobless months in my fathers house receiving insults from parents who were obviously tired of fending for me, all my efforts to get a job even if it was a menial one proved abortive, frustration slowly kicked in but i had to resist it, either by book or crook i vowed to make a way for myself, even in the midst of the recession people were still progressing, building structures and acquiring exotic properties, i just couldnt take that as an excuse.

Some how i managed to get a laptop and a mifi from a 'God sent' friend with the motive of going into yahoo yahoo or any other fraudulent means of getting money, little did i know that God had another plan all setup for me.

Anyway to cut the long story short, i had a change of mind about the 'yahoo' thing because deep down i knew that wasnt the way out for me.
A week later i opened my upwork account and luckily i got approved in no time, (i hear a lot of people complain about how hard it is to get an upwork account, as for me it was a very easy process, maybe because of the niche i applied for)

On Approval of my account, i went ahead to apply for jobs but i got no reply till about 3 days later when my very first client 'James Talton' initiated a conversation with me on one of the jobs i applied for, Being a newbie to the game i felt a bit nervous because that was the very first message i received from a potential client on upwork. We started getting along as he told me all his requirements and how he wanted them met, and i kept giving him polite and direct answers being overtly careful not to say anything that would deter me from winning his heart and landing the job, Just after a few minutes of conversation i saw an offer request pop up on the conversation screen, i was actually numb for a few seconds because the whole experience was new to me and i didnt know exactly what to do and how to do it, i just applied common sense (that i believe every learned person should have), read the terms and accepted the offer.

That was how i landed my first job on upwork, it was a $60 fixed price job, not an easy one though but i had to do everything possible to leave my newly found client smiling. it took me about four days to get the job done exactly as the client stated,i was given a week deadline so i still had reasonable time on my side but my urge to satisfy the client by finishing the work in lesser time couldn't stop me from submitting immediately and request approval of my very first milestone.

All this while i kept wondering how the money would get to me. i read about all the payment methods available then i opted for the direct to my local bank option(which i used my zenith bank account). i requested for my first withdrawal immediately after the four days it takes for the funds to appear on your timeline. i read all the instructions and did everything just exactly how i was instructed then waited for a miracle to happen.

To my amazement i received an SMS alert on my phone of the exact naira equivalent of the withdrawal i requested for in less than 10minutes. YES believe me when i say 10 minutes because thats exactly what happened, i was so amazed, the whole experience was so new to me. one unique thing about my upwork experience was that i never seeked enquiries from anybody. it was all an experiment i did all by myself.

From then on, i kept submitting job proposals tirelessly and landing jobs (no matter how small) till the day i met my very surest client (names withheld) and ever since then i have been smiling to the bank constantly. Some timid neighbors be thinking i'm a yahoo boy, i feel so sorry for them.

As of today 21st of november 2017, after 7 months of constant freelancing (since may), i can proudly boast that i have made millions from freelancing and the good thing is that the recession has been an advantage to freelancers this buhari era due to the high exchange rate, I make all my withdrawals at N332.143 per dollar. Presently i was hired by a Construction company in New york and i have been in charge of all their major estimating works since September.

I cant keep hiding this secret from my fellow Nigerians out there because it is too good to be true (anyway it is for those whom it may concern). Now i earn more and work at my own pace without having to answer 'sir' or 'ma' to anybody. isnt that cool?

Just yesterday i became TOP RATED on upwork and i feel so proud to have achieved such heights before the year ends, it took a lot of hard work and dedication, i had to deny myself of so many frivolities, when some of my friends were out partying i'll be in the house working for my clients.

At the moment, i am happy to say that i have moved out of my fathers house to an apartment of my own, own a cool ride, taking care of my girlfriend and our kid, with intentions of getting married next year. 2017 was a good year for me indeed, i dont intend to quit freelancing any time soon because it is my full time job. i keep wondering which job will pay me at least $1500 monthly (with the current exchange rate) if not an oil company job.

My Advice to upcoming freelancers Coming soon.

this is inspiring bro. what niche are you in. upwork is very stiff these days

Hello freelancers, I have been freelancing for a while on fiverr and It has really been great. Recently I decided to join upwork so as to increase my earnings because my niche is a very lucrative niche globally, but to my utmost surprise, I can't send proposals for US based jobs. Most clients do request for freelancers from the US. How do I overcome this ? Can anybody put me through please ??

Hello
Is it possible to withfldraw my earning into a Dormicilary account?

Yes.

It will cost you $30 though. So if you are withdrawing a large amount then use this option, otherwise, just use exchangers or withdraw to local bank account to save you the stress.

Here is my testimony on freelancing;

i have always known about freelancing and upwork ever since my university days but never took it seriously or pictured it as a source of income, not until after my NYSC, when reality dawned upon me that i had to irk out a living for myself. Graduating in the buhari era was not funny at all, the recession had kicked in strongly with cost of living on the rise, i spent a lot of jobless months in my fathers house receiving insults from parents who were obviously tired of fending for me, all my efforts to get a job even if it was a menial one proved abortive, frustration slowly kicked in but i had to resist it, either by book or crook i vowed to make a way for myself, even in the midst of the recession people were still progressing, building structures and acquiring exotic properties, i just couldnt take that as an excuse.

Some how i managed to get a laptop and a mifi from a 'God sent' friend with the motive of going into yahoo yahoo or any other fraudulent means of getting money, little did i know that God had another plan all setup for me.

Anyway to cut the long story short, i had a change of mind about the 'yahoo' thing because deep down i knew that wasnt the way out for me.
A week later i opened my upwork account and luckily i got approved in no time, (i hear a lot of people complain about how hard it is to get an upwork account, as for me it was a very easy process, maybe because of the niche i applied for)

On Approval of my account, i went ahead to apply for jobs but i got no reply till about 3 days later when my very first client 'James Talton' initiated a conversation with me on one of the jobs i applied for, Being a newbie to the game i felt a bit nervous because that was the very first message i received from a potential client on upwork. We started getting along as he told me all his requirements and how he wanted them met, and i kept giving him polite and direct answers being overtly careful not to say anything that would deter me from winning his heart and landing the job, Just after a few minutes of conversation i saw an offer request pop up on the conversation screen, i was actually numb for a few seconds because the whole experience was new to me and i didnt know exactly what to do and how to do it, i just applied common sense (that i believe every learned person should have), read the terms and accepted the offer.

That was how i landed my first job on upwork, it was a $60 fixed price job, not an easy one though but i had to do everything possible to leave my newly found client smiling. it took me about four days to get the job done exactly as the client stated,i was given a week deadline so i still had reasonable time on my side but my urge to satisfy the client by finishing the work in lesser time couldn't stop me from submitting immediately and request approval of my very first milestone.

All this while i kept wondering how the money would get to me. i read about all the payment methods available then i opted for the direct to my local bank option(which i used my zenith bank account). i requested for my first withdrawal immediately after the four days it takes for the funds to appear on your timeline. i read all the instructions and did everything just exactly how i was instructed then waited for a miracle to happen.

To my amazement i received an SMS alert on my phone of the exact naira equivalent of the withdrawal i requested for in less than 10minutes. YES believe me when i say 10 minutes because thats exactly what happened, i was so amazed, the whole experience was so new to me. one unique thing about my upwork experience was that i never seeked enquiries from anybody. it was all an experiment i did all by myself.

From then on, i kept submitting job proposals tirelessly and landing jobs (no matter how small) till the day i met my very surest client (names withheld) and ever since then i have been smiling to the bank constantly. Some timid neighbors be thinking i'm a yahoo boy, i feel so sorry for them.

As of today 21st of november 2017, after 7 months of constant freelancing (since may), i can proudly boast that i have made millions from freelancing and the good thing is that the recession has been an advantage to freelancers this buhari era due to the high exchange rate, I make all my withdrawals at N332.143 per dollar. Presently i was hired by a Construction company in New york and i have been in charge of all their major estimating works since September.

I cant keep hiding this secret from my fellow Nigerians out there because it is too good to be true (anyway it is for those whom it may concern). Now i earn more and work at my own pace without having to answer 'sir' or 'ma' to anybody. isnt that cool?

Just yesterday i became TOP RATED on upwork and i feel so proud to have achieved such heights before the year ends, it took a lot of hard work and dedication, i had to deny myself of so many frivolities, when some of my friends were out partying i'll be in the house working for my clients.

At the moment, i am happy to say that i have moved out of my fathers house to an apartment of my own, own a cool ride, taking care of my girlfriend and our kid, with intentions of getting married next year. 2017 was a good year for me indeed, i dont intend to quit freelancing any time soon because it is my full time job. i keep wondering which job will pay me at least $1500 monthly (with the current exchange rate) if not an oil company job.

My Advice to upcoming freelancers Coming soon.

Boss, you inspire me like speedy inspires diddy!
