Your pandemic safe haven

What if I told you there’s a place you can go… right now… to get a quick injection of cash? 500, 1,000, 3,000 and up. A kind of “safe space” from the recession we’re still in. Not some new “opportunity”…

Or some shiny new technology.

Nope, actually an old faithful.

One that’s been there this entire time:

Yep. Upwork.

17 hours ago, 18 hours ag0, 18 hours ago. 200, 6,000, 3,500. Brand new jobs posted in the last 24 hours. If the pandemic has you against the wall, the work you need to find your way out is STILL pouring into Upwork.

In fact, over 22,000 available projects in the U.S. alone:

And not old jobs.

All of these posted to the site within the past 5 days:

Projects for developers, graphic designers, writers, transcriptionists… hell, I even saw one in need of a “female actor”. The one you see here is “Tropical Home Design”. Whatever you do, there’s likely work there for you.

I wrote to you awhile back about the “secret” to surviving a recession.

In business, every recession has winners and losers. Businesses that not just survive but grow and expand — and businesses that close up shop for good. Where I live, a lot of the local businesses have been hit.

They were barely getting by anyway.

Any kind of slowdown was going to kill them.

Lockdowns and a recession?

They’re gone. Yet, Amazon is having some of its best quarters ever. Clorox is seeing a huge spike in sales. Nintendo up over 400%. Winners and losers. And, you simply attach yourself to the winners to ride out the recession.

It’s that simple.

Well, here they are!

If you’re thinking, where do I find them?

Right here.

The trick, of course, is getting those clients to hire YOU. That’s what’s so unique about the method I teach. It’s all about positioning. Think about this… what would give you a better chance of getting hired for these jobs?

You submitting a bid alongside the 30 other bids on these projects?

Or, Upwork itself recommending YOU to these clients?

And, these clients inviting you to bid based on Upwork’s recommendation.

Which bid is more likely to get the client’s attention?

Obviously, the second option. That’s why Upworkers who use the method I teach see such a dramatic change in the results they’re getting. They leverage the boost Upwork gives new freelancers…

To get Upwork to recommend them to the perfect clients.

Clients significantly more likely to invite them to bid on their project…

And, hire them.

And, it’s all about how you build your profile. Build it using the method I teach and you can see a dramatic increase in the job invites you get — and the projects you get hired for. And finally tap into the projects flooding into Upwork every single day.

But, fair warning…

You can’t just build your profile any old way. You can’t just copy what other successful Upworkers are doing — or follow the generic advice you’ll find on YouTube or the blog articles you’ll find out there.

If they’re not speaking specifically to the “loophole” in Upwork’s algorithm.

And, teaching a method specifically designed to exploit that loophole.

Then, they’re not teaching you the method I teach.

And, listening to that advice is likely why you haven’t had the success on Upwork that you’d hoped you have. It’s all well-meaning… but, they just don’t understand how the algorithm works. And, they’ll cause you to squander the limited-time opportunity Upwork is going to give you when you first create your account.

In any case, I don’t know your situation.

Maybe you’re sitting fat and happy.

If so, kudos! Seriously.

But, if not, and you could seriously use a quick injection of cash right now, Upwork is about the simplest way I know to do that. It’s all just sitting there… clients waiting for the perfect freelancer to show up.

It’s just a matter of putting the right words on your profile.

And, in your bids.

I mean, do what you want. It’s up to you to figure out what’s right for you. But, this is one simple way to fight your way through this recession. So, take it for what it’s worth.

Anyway, if you’d like me to show you what those are, it’s all in my R2 Protocol course, which you can learn more about here:

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.
