How to dominate the freelance sites

I got this question other day:

“To that point, I feel like I’m at a stalemate when it comes to my freelance business. Again, I can kind of get stuff done on Upwork but it’s just not enough. Does your new course cover this kind of thing?”

And, it got me thinking about the “state of things” in our freelance world.

I know I’m the grumpy old man hrmph-ing in the corner, but I can’t help but roll my eyes at all the so-called “experts” out there that plaster things like “300K earned on Upwork” all over their social media.

Like we don’t know the truth.

That 300K came over 10-15 years.

And 2/3 of it came *after* they started YouTubing about it.

Cool. But, how does that help the average Joe that doesn’t want to start a YouTube channel just to get clients on Upwork? Truth is, it won’t. Anyway, that was the exact situation I was it when I first created my Upwork account.

I don’t like to talk about numbers all that much…

Because every situation is different…

BUT, 3 months later I’d earned just over 14K from Upwork.

In my *first* 3 months on the platform.

I’ll let you do the math on what that looks like over a 15-year period.

Now, obviously, I can’t promise you’ll have the same results. That’d be stupid and irresponsible. But, I can show you what I did. And I can tell you many of my students have had varying levels of success with the approach I teach.

For many… far beyond anything they’d imagined was possible.

I can also tell you it’s not the obvious nonsense the “300Kers” teach.

And it can be used on almost all the freelance sites out there… not just Upwork.

Anyway, I teach you the secret to dominating the freelance sites in my Freelance Feast course which is currently discounted $134 — but only for a few more hours. No, it’s not “one weird trick” or “hack” that instantly brings you hoards of clients.

You’re not gonna change one word in your title and suddenly fix everything.

That’s not how this works.

But, I can show you how the platforms “think”, how they’re subtly “testing” you before ever land your first client and the things you need to in order to make them *want* to recommend your profile to clients and get you the eyeballs you need to have success.

But, as always, all this is for you to figure out…

If what I teach is a fit for you.

Just remember… the clock is tickin’ on the discount. Tonight, June 4th, at midnight the sale ends and the price gets jacked back up where it belongs. Proceed accordingly.

Later,

John

Daniel Mohlendick

On the Freelancing on Upwork course: “This is by far the best course i have watched on Skillshare!! Thank you so much.”

Sukh Plaha

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

Chris Aitken

He significantly improved my site through his expert knowledge of PHP, CSS and Javascript. Would definitely recommend John to others.

Jason Rumley

John has a habit of over-delivering on the expectations he sets up. That’s why he’s the best.

Michael Skye

John is a man of integrity, who gives generously of himself to projects and people he cares about.

Lewis Howes

John is amazing at building membership sites. He converted one of my sites over from it’s existing (hardly working) platform over to the clean and simple to use WishList membership platform. I highly recommend using John and WishList for any of your membership site needs.

Bob Patterson

Not only is John a very talented programmer and developer, he is also an excellent communicator. He has a talent for taking complex subjects and communicating them in terms that anyone can understand. This is a rare combination. This ability has enabled me to take my skills and knowledge to the next level. Thank you John for for all that you do.
