tensazangetsu20:I need your comparison between Web development and Mobile app development
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Drella(m): 8:51am On Jun 16|
Thanks so much for this!
I'll take need to your advice...
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Drella(m): 9:01am On Jun 16|
On google drive??
I want to learn too.

I can't see your post ma'am.

There is a market for HubSpot on Upwork. The OP can start by taking courses on HubSpot and start right away once he has completed the fundamentals of JS.
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Ovaltine(m): 9:19am On Jun 16|
You need the HubSpot certs. Most are free and will take you only 2-3 days to finish a module depending on the number of hours you spend on it daily.
HubSpot is pretty wide tho. I once did some stuff with it and focused on the API aspect and not the CMS thing
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Ovaltine(m): 9:26am On Jun 16|
You're right about Electron with JS.
Web is pretty wide. Lots of tools and lots of frameworks... It's very good to have web skills.
However, the enterprise market can never do away with Desktop apps. Guess why? They are actually more secure.
Apart from being able to control OS APIs, desktop apps can be built to do very specific tasks that are tied to a computer. Features that browser apps cannot even dream of yet.
So if the OP wants to quickly specialize, desktop is a shortcut. He just have to be good and learn it well.
Then he has to add Backend and Database stuff with it later so he can Fullstack

E be like say you never reach absolute beginner level sef..
You wan enter university, you dey ask admission officer if jamb and postjamb na the same.
Go and do your homework first.. Else,, the tips they give you here won't make so much sense as you won't relate.

Ovaltine:Even at the enterprise level, a lot of things are moving to the cloud. Salesforce is cloud based. SAP is also moving to the cloud now.

|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by AmuEwu: 10:10am On Jun 16|
What a coincidence, from Reddit to Nairaland
You're doing great bro!
And your Upwork threads are educational
I apologize for referring to you as " Nigerian boy". I think it sounds somewhat derogatory.
Please I have a question regarding Upwork's direct contract. Does Upwork still collect their 20% fee when using direct contract?
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Johnne32(m): 10:25am On Jun 16|
Thanks man. I'm glad I could help!
For the name, no need to apologize....I actually love it
Now, for your question, Upwork can't collect 20% fee when it comes to direct contract....when they are not mad .
They only collect 3.4% of the paid money as fee for using their platform. I explained it well here:

Drella:How about now?
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Sanctecosma(m): 10:32am On Jun 16|
kowalsky:Thanks a lot for this. But am just wondering. Can someone who has a great analytical mind critical/deep thinking ability with no computer science background fare well in programming or coding?
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Harrykn: 10:32am On Jun 16|
I have some challenges in this section.
Let’s discuss abeg.
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by flexyndavis(m): 10:51am On Jun 16|
I want to thank everybody that comment on these forum, Truly God will bless you all.
I'm in the same shoe with the OP , I want to learn short term skills that will fetch me money then next year i will feature on long term goals,

laurenwhite:YouTube will be of great help, Goodluck
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by xalex77c: 11:01am On Jun 16|
Harrykn:what exactly don't you understand about data entry
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by AmuEwu: 11:01am On Jun 16|
That's all you need, actually. In tech nobody cares for your degree or background. Its only a case of can you do it, have you done it before, and do you have samples of previous work (portfolio)
So yeah, you can learn coding without a computer science background.
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Harrykn: 11:07am On Jun 16|
xalex77c:I can’t verify my upwork, I use an iOS device and the app requires linking my LinkedIn. Fiverr rejected my login detail because I can’t access my old email for verification.
What’s the way forward abeg.
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by gunsnroses: 11:38am On Jun 16|
First of all, I'm proud of you for actually choosing the hard path of being a freelancer. It's going to be a tough journey, but you can do this! I have no experience with udemy, but if you really want to start ASAP, the best courses are probably anything related to content writing.
Contrary to what you believe, you don't need to be an expert at something to write about it–although that would be a definite bonus if you were. You just need to be able to explain it in a way that your target audience can understand you. Basing on your interactions with the other commenters, you have a good command of the English language for your writing! I highly suggest you choose something you're really interested in and try to search popular places like LinkedIn, Upwork, or Fiverr if there are any available positions for your specific niche.
Being a freelancer only takes confidence. I began as a freelancer 10 years ago and I did not know what I was doing–I just had the confidence to pitch to clients. That's what gets your foot in the door in the first place. I mainly ghostwrite because it has the highest income potential for my niche (Coaching & Business Consulting) and one of the things that you will probably not need now but will further down the line is to improve your "brand"–which is you.
I like making my email pitches to potential clients really catchy, I make sure my invoices are sent on time and look professional (I also have it automated to remind a client of the deadline), and I also create my own contracts because I specify add-ons to an agreement where I can use a ghostwritten piece as a part of my writer portfolio. This all adds to the brand I have as a professional ghostwriter.
Another thing, whatever niche you're trying to get into, you need to have background knowledge on SEO. I specifically work on B2B SEO so I can recommend this guide to you, but SEO is generally a really wide spectrum and the internet is a breeding ground of tons of helpful information, you just need to weed the BS ones out.
These are things that I learned in 3 months and mastered in 10 years. If I did it without enrolling in a course, you can probably do it with the resources you have. Good luck!

Afonjaaaaaa, is that you?
|Re: Advice An Intending Freelancer by Collinsanele: 2:42pm On Jun 16|
Don't give up on your programming career/journey.
If you feel tired and burnt out, rest, but do not quit.
I pray the gig market favors you.
