Freelancing isn’t dead, your strategy is
If you follow these steps, it is IMPOSSIBLE TO FAIL
I signed up in Upwork 5 months ago. I created 4 fiver gigs stating my services. I sent 50+ proposals in Upwork, still, I got 0 clients.
It was demotivating. I thought that freelancing just wasn’t for me.
So, I just stopped sending proposals.
I started engaging on social media with bigger accounts just for fun, with no ulterior agenda.
After I started engaging with others, people started noticing me.
That week, I gained 30+ followers.
I built an email list by providing value just for free.
I started writing on medium about the topics I was interested in i.e; web development
I offered to create a landing page in my email list, 5 people were interested, I am working for 3 of them.
I am getting offers to promote their product in my articles and email list.
One of my Twitter followers is a Startup Founder, he offered me a Job on his startup as a React Developer.
It was difficult for me to get a Job on platforms like Upwork, Fiverr. But I changed my strategy.
Here’s some take away you can take from my freelancing Journey:
- Engage with others in your niche
- Provide value for free online
- write articles about topics in your niche
- Outreach and send tons and tons of cold emails (!important)
