Understand Upwork and Learn How to Find Success by Standing Out From the Crowd.

  • The mindset you need to succeed on Upwork
  • Choosing a niche for freelance work
  • Setting up an amazing profile
  • Finding (and landing!) high quality, well-paying projects
  • Best practices for communicating with clients

Be Successful on a Major Freelancing Platform
Learning how to be successful on a major platform such as Upwork is a huge advantage as a freelancer. If you can optimize for success on Upwork, you will never have to fear being without work!

Upwork can be intimidating. There are thousands of jobs posted every week and an equal number of freelancers who will compete with you for work (many of whom are willing to work for less than $5 per hour). Luckily, you can succeed on Upwork at higher rates, and I’ll show you some of my tricks for standing out from the crowd.

What We’ll Cover
I’ve designed this course to be relevant for people with a wide range of freelancing experience. Even if you have never freelanced or worked online, I will help you narrow your focus and find a suitable niche to pursue as a freelancer.

The course will show you how to navigate the massive platform that is Upwork, starting with your very own profile. A thorough and fine-tuned profile is one of the keys to being successful on Upwork, and I’m going to show you what has worked for me as a top-rated Upwork freelancer.

After setting up your profile, I’ll show you how to search for jobs. While this might sound simple, finding worthwhile jobs can be extremely time-consuming and difficult. Many of the jobs you’ll see are not worth pursuing. I’ll show you how to use Upwork’s extensive filtering and tag systems to uncover the best jobs, both in pay and client quality.

Once you’ve found jobs that you’re interested in, you’ll need to know how to “sell yourself” to clients in order to win the contract. You’ll learn my best tips for writing excellent, attention-grabbing proposals that consistently impress clients and result in work!

The final ingredient in being a world-class freelancer on Upwork is to maintain excellent communication with your clients as you work. This is often the skill that separates struggling freelancers to those who are making 6-figures or more! As a top-rated Upwork freelancer, I’ve learned the best practices for communicating with clients, and I’ll help you do the same!

I look forward to seeing you in the course! By the time you’ve completed every lecture, you’ll be equipped to tackle the Upwork platform and be on your way to becoming a successful, top-rated freelancer!

Stephanie Danforth

I've been working as a designer, business owner, and entrepreneur since 2013. I started my entrepreneurial journey as a jewelry designer selling on Etsy. I ran my small jewelry business while living in a campervan so my husband and I could travel the USA. About 6 months into our glorious journey around the US, we decided to take our nomadic lifestyle international and took off for Europe! We've been working remotely and traveling full time ever since.

Once we started traveling internationally, I decided to put my jewelry business on pause and pursue my passion for design by learning web design. In just 6 short months, I went from knowing nothing to being fully equipped to make consistent income online. Now, I can at anytime pull in anywhere from $2-5k/month from my freelancing alone!

Platforms such as Elance and Upwork were crucial to my success as a freelancer that was starting from scratch. I want to share what I've learned about working on freelance platforms, as well as what I've learned in my field, in hopes that I can help other people find success and grow their freelancing income.

"Stephanie is not only providing details on how to freelance, but also encouragement to move forward even though you may feel fearful or insecure. So many people struggle just to get started, and Stephanie does a good job of explaining that there is a large demand and that you can start even though you may not feel "expert" enough."
