You are reading this blog because you want to earn more in freelancing career. There is lots of freelancing websites and believe all are same. Do not worry, I am not going to explain here “How to bid on upwork”, “key points for freelance career”.

Okay that’s fine, Here we are
Is it possible to earn $5000+ from Upwork or other freelancing website?
A big yes, but how?
Upwork tips to earn $5000 per month:
1. Always keep in mind Upwork or other freelancing websites (like freelance.in, peopleperhour etc) will not give you $5000
Getting me, your client will give that much of amount.
2. So why we use Upwork?
Use upwork as mediator to get clients. Upwork contain lots of genuine and good clients and this is true.
Focus on clients not Upwork:
- Do not skip small projects , if it is posted by a high paying client. Freelancer should have skills to recognise high paying clients. I have already discussed “how to find high paying clients on upwork“.
- Bid on small project and win the trust of that client. I believe one client can give you so many work.
- Always try to impress client and follow them on linkedin, facebook and other social media websites.
- Try to complete every project within deadline.
- If freelancer found a high paying clients on upwork then save this job, if you do not meet skills. May be next time client have work for your skills.
- Follow up all clients in every week or ask them for referral.
Most of freelancer trying to get big project like $10000 cost but this is not a good way to start. You cannot earn quickly, freelancer should have a long strategy.
I have only 10-12 clients and they are giving me regular work. So I am trying to say make clients, It can be grow your freelancer career.
