Pls can you take a peek at my profile on freelancer and suggest any necessary change or ways to improve it. I've been on this for months and I haven't got a single order. This is the link to my profile: https://www.freelancer.com/u/Datepalm.html

Change your profile pic and put a good picture of yourself there. Bid continuously on different projects per day (like 10 bids daily). Within a week, you will get a project to do. Also, don't put all your eggs in one basket. Spread your wings to other platforms. You can try Fiverr too. Build a platform (a blog) where you can market your skills directly to clients.

Yes, I have registered... but I don't get what you meant by 'working account'

Thanking you

Have you registered? Like do you have a working account?

first, register your payoneer card

Hi bro, I am new to blogging and I would love to work as a freelance writer.

How does payoneer card work?
What is its usefulness to frelancing?

Ok good, now you need to market yourself.
First check online and write a good eye catching bio for yourself, make sure to include your experience or and certification if any.
Secondly you need to take basic tests, like numeracy (very simple you can use calculator sef), English level 1/2, (American and British) and other tests in your area of specialty. These tests cost $5 each (na investment). Once you have done this your profile will look catchy enough and a potential client can trust you to a level as a serious freelancer.
Btw, there are points you accumulate by completing your registration, these points can be used to take the tests I talked about above.
Finally, it would do you some good if you can subscribe for the $10-20 a month platform (just for the First or and second month) this would increase your chances to land jobs and also the amount of bids you have.
Kindly look up my comment to ladywriter and try to employ that tactic. Patience is key but you might just be lucky. Kind regards, Dexema.

@Ladywriter:
Thanks madam for this exciting piece. I want to thank you for all you've been doing concerning the financial empowerment of youths. You are a role model, a star and God will continue to bless you richly. I am a living testimony of your good works and I believe there are thousands of other people who have benefited from you. Of course, I want to earn more as a writer and I will urgently practice the tricks you enumerated in your post.

@Everyone:
Whenever Ladywriter issues out guides to make a successful living in writing, I advise you all to follow her. She is an amazing mentor and a very successful writer. I started writing in November 2014 and it took me 8 - 10 months to get my breakthrough on freelancer.com. Ladywriter was supportive during that period. If you are having issues with freelancer.com, i will advise you to persevere and keep working hard. Rome was not built in a day!

Hmmm! Thank you dearie!. Testimonies like this inspires me to impact more lives. The rate of employment in this country saddens me. This is a business any one can do legally without cutting corners or scamming anyone. God helping me, I will keep writing and sharing freely from my experience.

Actually, you can use any mode of payment that suits you. I like Payoneer because of its good invoicing system. Clients are not required to sign up to make payment. They can pay directly through the payment link in the invoice.

I am also among those that benefited from her guides... The first day I read her thread on making $1000 from researching and writing, I found it a bit hard to believe, but was moved when I found out it was a lady that created the thread, I followed the thread and became regular here.
To cut it short, freelancer.com is paying me, at least I've been training myself in school with the little I make there. However, it has not been like a bed of roses for me on that platform, but all the same, God has used Ladywriter, Chidinho, and Tranxo to bless me. I hope to earn higher there in no distant time.

@Everyone.
Perseverance, hardwork, patience and putting God first is just the secret. You can start as an article writer, and also learn to craft other kinds of writing as time goes...

I am also one of the numerous beneficiaries of your tips and advice on making a living by engaging in freelance writing. I opened an account on Freelancer when I studied the important lessons you taught us in the original thread on this platform. And I have been making some money writing for people.

However, I have been stuck on just one American client whom I regulary write for since February; he pays $8/500 words. I have been searching for long-term projects of this ilk for some time now but am still unsuccessful.

Please, kindly critique my profile on Freelancer and and the new account I just opened on Fiverr: https://www.freelancer.com/u/Deji88.html and https://www.fiverr.com/skilledwriter88
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks a million!

Hi bro, I am new to blogging and I would love to work as a freelance writer.

How does payoneer card work?
What is its usefulness to frelancing?
Hi, as a freelancer, you get paid electronically. In order to cash the money out of the platform, you need an electronic account like payoneer or paypal. Once the money is in the electronic account, you can forward to your local bank account if you live in a country where this is possible. However, if you live in Nigeria, you can not transfer to your local bank. Thus, you need the card to withdraw your raw cash.

Advice: Using card is expensive for you as a Nigerian and the exchange rate is not favourable. You also pay card maintenance fee. You can sell your cash from these electronic account to any trusted buyer and get naira equivalent. this is more profitable for you. hope this help
