This course is for those who are serious about taking a 360 degree approach to UpWork freelance success. Writing a good proposal isn’t the only thing that you need to consider, although that’s one of the things discussed in this course. If you want your online freelancing business to grow, you should consider leveraging all aspects of UpWork while building a strong online presence off the platform. A strong online presence will help you direct more clients to your UpWork profile. That equals more UpWork jobs and money in your pocket!
You’ve probably been struggling with securing clients on UpWork, especially since competition is rife. There are approximately 12 million freelancers on UpWork. Therefore, you’re probably competing with hundreds of thousands of freelancers in your category. What makes the problem even more real is that freelancers no longer get 50 free connects in the free plan. Connects now have to be purchased and you don’t want to waste money buying connects if you aren’t getting any jobs. The only way to stand out in a sea of competitors is to understand how to effectively brand yourself both on and off UpWork.
That’s what makes this course different. Not only is it specifically tailored to explaining how to utilize the most recent UpWork features, it also starts by helping you understand how personal branding can help you achieve lasting UpWork success.

Very personable and easy to follow....she appeals to the very very very beginner as well as those that have some experience with little success
This is a great intro review of how to customize your online presence to attract clients online. Some of the tips were applicable to outside of UpWork client search.
I really enjoyed this course! The delivery was great, direct and easy to understand. The presentations were also well done, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone seeking to add further value to themselves (another facet) or just personal development. Great course!
The content was excellent and the presenter articulate, warm and inviting. Her use of graphics and demonstrations were all on point. As an older learner (60+) I would have liked just a little live addition to the presentation every now and again. I did however receive what I had hoped to learn and much more. Highly recommend.
I started working on Upwork 5 years ago. It has basically been a trial and error process for me. This course has given me everything I need to revamp and revitalize my profile there to ensure positive experiences for both myself and my clients. I wish I had access to this course in my early days on the platform. The content presented here is relevant and is delivered in an engaging manner. This course will definitely put you on the path to becoming a top-rated freelancer on Upwork.
The course was very informative. I now know how to create an Upwork profile that will help me to get clients.
This course exceeded my expectations! This instructor is a true pedagogue who is knowledgeable and well experienced in the subject matter. I love the way she provides a clear roadmap throughout the course so it is really easy to follow. Her use of bold graphics as well as her own delivery style makes the course engaging. I took this course because I was curious about ways to earn a secondary income. I think I will keep coming back to the very helpful contents of this course as I embark on my own UpWork journey!
Love the clarity and the graphics and definition used on expounding on improving your Upwork net worth.
