I just sold a script for a Toyota commercial

Came across this on Twitter:

“But, but Joooohn…”

“There’s not any good clients on Upwork.”

“This. Does. Not. Compuuuuuuu—”

Ooooooor, maybe just maybe all the know-it-alls who rant and rave about how awful Upwork is are wrong. Naaaaaaaaah. Couldn’t be.

Sigh.

Look.

The truth about Upwork is what it’s always been.

There’s amazing clients that pay well and are awesome to work with.

And, there’s dirtbags.

It comes down to 2 things:

  1. Knowing how to FIND the good ones.
  2. APPEALING to the good ones so they hire you.

Figure those two things out and Upwork suddenly becomes this amazing client-getting machine that can send you so much work you have to shut it down so you don’t get overwhelmed.

Soooo… will you put in the work to learn this two things or no?

That’s what it comes down to.

But, that’s up to you.

I can’t tell you what to do.

Anyway, I teach both in my Freelancing on Upwork course. How to consistently find the best clients and pull out the key hiring criteria from their projects so you can write persuasive proposals.

And, you can learn it for nothing on SkillShare.

Details on that are here: https://skl.sh/2OIxQrO

Do what you will with it.

Later,

John

John Morris is exceptional in his ability to give focused insight into Freelancing and starting one’s business. His direct methods inspire confidence in his honesty.

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!

Steve Dimmick

John did an outstanding job on my project. I highly recommend him and look forward to working with him on future projects.

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.
