Naturally, this type of client needs to be at the centerpiece of the Hidden Upwork Economy.Otherwise, I’d be describing a Tootsie Roll Pop with no Tootsie Roll in the middle. Most freelancers think there aren’t enough clients like this on Upwork to support a six-figure income, but remember, you need to go beyond the obvious.
Good question, especially given its invisibleness and all.
As I see it, the Hidden Upwork Economy consists of 3 key parts that fly totally under most people’s radar — a sort of perfect storm for Upwork badassery.
Expert Rating's mission is to deliver high-quality services at competitive prices so as to achieve full client satisfaction.
Accordingly, the company undertakes routine upgrade of all its offerings, and adopts latest technologies for the delivery of both the existing products and the new additions. Every system and process is tuned to deliver the best and optimal solution.
So, freelancers tend to land on Upwork without any kind of plan.
Then they quickly get discouraged when they see all the low paying jobs — and the morass of competitors they believe they have to beat for the privilege of actually winning one.
One of my most trusted mentors advised me that, if I wanted to make real money and have an enjoyable freelancing career, I shouldn’t waste my time on Upwork (formerly Elance). If I’d gotten his tip a couple of years earlier, I probably would have listened.
I’d already been “Upworking” for the past 24 months, and had just closed a six-figure year.
Among the numerous companies that have availed Expert Rating's services are Convergys, Deltek, IKEA Systems, Fox News, and Fiserv, to name a few.
