What is your review on Upwork?

I applied for a job posted on UpWork and the client wanted a perfect old domain. I offered him one of my prestigious old domains and we made a deal on UpWork. All communication & transaction was kept on the UpWork Platform. Job was done & payment was made.

After 2 days, my account got suspended and I received an email asking for explanation. I sent all scree shots and relative information. The UpWork support thanked me and told me they are now waiting for the response from the Client side.

They took 7 days and after that replied me that my account has been permanently suspended because the client has a lack of desire in responding. When I asked from the client through UpWork messages, he responded that he had already provided the information twice and he is very unhappy with the support staff.

I contacted UpWork Support staff and received no clarification on this matter after that. I tried contacting them on Twitter, LinkedIn as well but no response. It seems like all of them have vanished somewhere.

I have suspicion that UpWork staff and the client had some communication problem or the staff was rude or the client was rude to them. They have suspended my account as well to cover up something and blocked every mode of communication. From the first day of suspension, I cannot ask question or post a reply on the Community platform.

The communication has been so slow from the support staff that it gets irritating. Matters like these where payments are involved should be handled with priority but instead they are extra slow.

I do send them a reminder and ask them questions everyday but I do not get any response from them. I have asked them numerous time that what was my fault and what is the actual reason behind the suspension of my account but I have not received any reply.

Is freelancing on Upwork worth my time?

Yes and No. If you get your first 2–3 projects and your work starts and the projects start rolling in, it is totally worth your time. But also consider the country from where you belong, and if you already have a job, consider your paycheck. If you are from countries like Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and are either struggling to get a job or have a low paying job, it could prove to be a great opportunity.

I will tell you about my own journey of earning $2300 in the first 20 days of this month and with four projects worth $900 in the queue. But this journey wasn’t easy, until four months ago I was working at a job as an app developer and earning $500(devaluation really hit hard) a month and an additional $400–500 from my apps on Google Play. I wasn’t happy with my pay, and there wasn’t much growth in this field here in Pakistan. So, two years ago, I decided to create my profile on Fiverr and Freelancer, in my first year, I only got 2 projects and earned only $300. I thought that maybe these two sites are totally worthless, and perhaps Upwork is a better option, so I tried my luck there, but my profile was soon closed due to not getting a job after bidding on several projects. At that point, I had given up on freelancing. It was February this year that I got 2 projects on Fiverr and earned $900, better than my pay, and due to the recent devaluation, it was nearly twice my paycheck. And after that, it kept on improving. By July, I was making $1400–1600 and that Google Play earning touched $500 mark. So, I decided to quit my job and focus on my freelancing career. And after that, I have witnessed a constant increase in my earning. And now, at this point, I will make $3200 even if I don’t get any more projects. And $700 from Google Play is also helping a lot.

Is Upwork good for beginners?

As a beginner, I would recommend setting up a way to get clients outside of Upwork. The reason being if you start to get more and more clients you can’t take them with you if Upwork goes away or deletes your account. As well as any client you do want to work with outside Upwork you have to pay a fee. When you are just starting out having Upwork is a good way to get clients without spending hours searching for them. It is good to use Upwork as another source to find clients but don’t solely rely on Upwork as your only means of getting clients.

How to make money on Upwork

1. Set up a profile

Your profile serves the same purpose as a general resume for prospective employers. You can’t get work without one.

Fill out the job type you’d like to do, the specific areas in which you’re skilled and your level of expertise. This is all self-reported, so be honest. If you get hired for jobs you can’t deliver on, your account could be put on hold or closed.

After that, add a head shot and a detailed description of your background. You can include links to a portfolio or to specific work samples.

You can also fill in your education, how many hours per week you can work, location and preferred rate. If you’re not sure what to charge, check out the rates of other freelancers on Upwork who have a similar experience.

Upwork will typically approve your profile within 24 hours, assuming your profile is verifiable and accurate. Then you can get working.

2. Choose a membership plan

Upwork offers two membership plans for freelancers: Basic and Plus.

Basic:

This plan is free, but you’ll pay to connect with potential clients. Freelancers on the basic plan pay $0.15 for each “Connect,” the platform’s internal tokens, which are used to submit proposals to clients. You can rollover up to 140 Connects each month.

If someone reaches out to you, you don’t have to use any Connects. The more robust your profile looks, the more likely you are to receive job offers from potential clients. Displaying your best work or highlighting specific experience can help you stand out. If you’re new to your field, volunteer experience counts, too.

The basic plan also includes payment protection for hourly and project-based payments.

Plus:

This plan is $14.99 per month and includes everything in the basic plan, as well as:

  • 70 Connects per month.
  • Visibility into what price competitors have bid for a job.
  • Option to keep earnings confidential.
  • Ability to customize your profile URL.
  • A profile is never hidden due to inactivity.

3. Connect with (legitimate) employers

Use your Connects to submit proposals for jobs in your wheelhouse. Proposals should include an introductory letter, your desired fee and answers to questions the client included in the posting. You can also send examples of any work you think would be relevant.

Before applying for a gig, get an idea of the potential employer’s reputation. The Better Business Bureau, Glassdoor and a search for news coverage of the employer on Google are good places to start your research.

Upwork’s ratings system helps you decide who you really want to work with and lets others see if they want to hire you.

Much like Uber or Lyft, both parties rate each other after the contract is complete. Employers are graded on a five-star scale, and their ratings are visible on their pages. Ratings from your clients make up your Job Success Score, which is a percentage displayed on your profile that represents how many gigs were completed to the client’s satisfaction. These ratings help you decide who you really want to work with and lets others see if they want to hire you.

Even if everything checks out, keep communication and payments within the site. Documenting behaviour on both sides discourages scams, as clients will be held accountable for making shady payment or work requests or making claims about your work without in-site proof.

4. Set your price and start working

Upwork takes a cut of your earnings. The fee structure is a sliding scale based on the total amount you bill with a client over time, so the more you work with a client, the smaller the cut taken. You can expect Upwork to take:

  • 20% for the first $500 you bill a client.

  • 10% for total billings with a client between $500.01 and $10,000.

  • 5% for total billings with a client that exceed $10,000.

You can get paid in one of two ways: hourly or fixed price. Upwork’s fees are the same for both.

Your hourly rate on Upwork is the price before the service deduction. So if you list a rate of $20 per hour for your first gig, you can expect to earn $16 per hour after the 20% fee. Once you’ve billed $500 with that client, the fee drops to 10% and you would earn $18 per hour.

When you negotiate a rate for a fixed-price job, the same idea applies: If you’re getting paid $400 for a job, you’ll be paid $320 after the 20% cut. Once you’ve billed $500 with that client, the fee drops to 10%.

If you’re approached for a job with a low rate of pay, don’t take it at face value. Negotiate with the customer to find a price that fits.

If you’re approached for a job with a low rate of pay for much tougher work, you don’t have to take it at face value. Negotiate with the customer to find a price that fits.

Hourly projects

All hourly projects get logged in your Work Diary, which is built into Upwork’s desktop app. With this function on, the app will keep a detailed record of your progress on a project. The app tracks your time in 10-minute billing cycles. It records keystrokes, scrolling, clicks and active windows. It also takes a screenshot periodically.

You can also turn the Work Diary on and off at any time and log work manually instead, but using the tool helps you qualify for an Upwork service called Hourly Protection. This service ensures that you’ve paid for work you can prove you completed, even if a client refuses.

Fixed-price projects

Payment for fixed-price projects is more straightforward. The person or company contracting you has to set aside a certain amount of money when you make the agreement. The employer must also set milestones, which are concrete deliverables on the way to the finished job. You’re paid with some or all of the deposit once you hit these checkpoints, and the remainder is paid once everything is complete.

4. Get paid

Upwork freelancers can get secured payments via PayPal, direct deposit or wire transfer.

All of your hourly projects are billed weekly. You’ll get paid after you and the client review the work, 10 days after the billing period ends. If a project gets dropped before it’s finished, that’s when Hourly Protection and milestones come in handy. If you think you weren’t compensated fairly, Upwork has a dispute process.

Fixed-price projects start paying out as you hit agreed-upon milestones. You can begin a dispute if the client fails to pay for a milestone or refuses to pay for what you think is completed work.

How can I earn $2,000/month through UpWork?

If you are new on Upwork and want to earn $2000/month from the 1st month then it is a little difficult task but not impossible.

You can hire a Business Development Professional who can take care of your Upwork id from bidding to client handling.

The Business Development Professional can help you with:

  1. Update/recreate Content for your profile
  2. Search and Place bid on jobs related to your skills
  3. Generate Leads to your profile and increase your profile visibility
  4. Convert Leads to Long Term Client.
