Fundamentals, my fellow ruffian, fundamentals.
Not “super slick” and “epic” gimmicks…
Or, shiny new “hacks”.
Boring, but proven, fundamentals.
The more I spin around this little blue planet, the more I’m reminded that… when you focus on fundamentals over all the bright, shiny “hacks” and “techniques” the Medium-heads love to preach about… everything gets a helluva lot easier.
Take this comment I just got from a non-coder:
“John im not into coding at all but Ive found your course [Upwork 101] to be insanely helpful even though Im only a few parts in. The research section alone blew my mind just now as i have multiple skills (Video editing, writing, social media ect). Upon following your advice I just started researching and its shocking the difference between social media/marketing (what i will be studying soon) vs a skill i have (video editing). Saw examples of guys doing marketing who made over 500k on upwork [insert mind blown emoji]…The research step alone is an eye opener. Cant wait to get on with the rest of the course!”
I get asked this all the time:
“Does your Upwork course work for non-developers.”
The short answer is: Yes!
That’s because I’m not teaching you a bunch of gimmicks or “techniques” that only work in one industry, at one time, for one person. Instead, I’m teaching you the fundamentals of marketing applied to freelancing.
And, that’s something that’ll work in any industry.
At any time.
And, that’s the kind of stuff you should look for… not all this gimmicky, bubble gum bull crap… that worked for that one guy with that one thing that one time. That’s a rocky road to hell.
Anyway, if you’re up for learning the “boooring” fundamentals…
That are a helluva lot more likely to put the benjis in your pantalones…
