The following post is for beginners who want to learn how to make money on Upwork. This guide will explain different strategies that can be used, in addition to providing some basic tips for finding clients.
Make sure you have the right skills
The first step when looking to make money on Upwork is to ensure that you have the skills required in order to complete the tasks set out by your client. It’s not necessary for you to be qualified or knowledgeable, but it will make your life a lot easier if you are! You need these skills because if either party doesn’t know what they are doing, nothing will get accomplished. For example, when coding with node.

It’s always better to be sure that you have the relevant expertise required by clients so that there is no issue with completing tasks for them. This will reduce the risk of losing clients, and it also shows professionalism by demonstrating your expertise.
Get a referral from a friend
Another way to get clients is to ask your friends or family members who they use on Upwork. If you have friends or family that are using Upwork, then it will show that you are highly ranked when searching for a job. This will also help to boost your reputation and ensure that you get a large number of applicants when creating a new account with Upwork.
This is the main reason why I have 4 referrals in my profile!
I can’t stress this enough, this is important because Upwork has many users so it is likely that they will look at your profile and notice your high rankings. It is also possible that their friend or family will recommend you if they are satisfied with your work.
Take note of your Upwork experience
All information on Upwork can be viewed by anyone who has access to it (for example, clients). Therefore, you need to take note of how many jobs you have taken on previously. You should also focus on the number of bids you receive when using Upwork for the first time. This information will help you make an informed decision about whether or not to use Upwork for future work.
