Important Tips to earn from Freelancer

Freelancer is no doubt the best website for freelancing. I have seen many friends earning a lot. I also saw some loosing money doing simple mistakes. Please read the below mentioned tips carefully as they will help you a lot.

1. Don’t contact the advertisers directly and don’t do direct dealings with advertisers. There are many advertisers who pay for first project, get in touch with freelancers directly and skip money for their next projects if they do directly. Freelancer has no control over these advertisers if you do directly.

2. Accept projects only after it is approved in Freelancer. Once milestone payment is done, you can start working on the project. Don’t give away your code or writing before it is approved in Freelancer. This is common mistake done by freshers in Freelancer.

3. There is also premium membership in Freelancer. For freshers, I initially suggest to go for free membership. Once you have two to three projects in hand, then go for premium membership. It will decrease your project fees. But don’t just run away from initial days.

4. Build credibility in Freelancer. It is one of the important part in your career. Advertisers like freelancers who have good credibility.  Don’t go for cheaper prices just to increase credibility. Maintain your dignity.

    Hello Raj, I got an opportunity sometime back to register with this site but within a short period of my time with it, they just disable my account of a reason unknown to me upto now. Though it’s a good site, I can’t understand why I am unable to access my account. I might in the future join it but it had made me furious. Otherwise, it’s great finding your blog my friend. Currently, I use other sites to get some extra $$$ which I am happy of. Your blog is splendid. Stay bless.
