How to Maintain Your Upwork Profile in 2018

I've started working through Upwork since 2012 and a lot of things changed since then. I just joined the platform to prepare for freelancing in the future [which is right now] and it really helped me to be patient about anything freelance. Here are a few things that you should remember in maintaining your Upwork profile this 2018.

1. Always find work and get paid to avoid your profile to become private that will not allow potential employers to find you via search.

This is basically a new rule for me and I never heard anyone talking about this one. I just discovered this when my profile was turned to private by Upwork after not having income for more than three weeks, I think, and it was really a huge change on my freelancing activity. So now I learned to have at least 2-3 clients every week.


2. Check the background of the employer first before starting to sending an application letter or submitting a proposal. You can do so by checking the reviews about the potential client and read all the comments. In that way, you'll have an idea on what type of client you'll be dealing with in the future.

3. Maybe, you can start applying work of clients that have already invested a lot at Upwork. In that way, you can avoid those who can't pay or those who have no plans of paying you in the first place.

4. Be mindful of your reviews. I usually provide positive reviews for clients who really gave me a smooth, meaningful and profitable working experience. They usually provide remarkable rating in return.


In closing, make sure to develop a good working relationship with your clients. Obviously, your rating or job success will go down if some clients will give you low rating.

Happy freelancing! 💓
