That is a very good idea. If I have a job which I am sure I can complete in no time and have previous experience in that area, I will do the insanely high price trick to make sure I get the job. About the portfolio, I don’t have one. I only send out attachments of my work whenever needed. But since you are focusing on portfolio so much, I would like to know how to make one. What are the things I am supposed to put in there? About cover letters, I write them well but it depends on whether I am writing from my phone or my laptop. I have landed job both ways. I get replied about 10% of the time. Not more than that. I guess portfolio is the limiting factor here. Also, I live in the EU and the tax is 5% so basically I get paid 75% of the price. When do you drop down to 5%? I wish this day comes really fast to me. I still haven’t earned my first 500$ in upwork so I still pay 20% fees for Upwork services. Also usually clients ask for very specific software to be used for their projects and I don’t send out a proposal because I don’t have it. Do you guys think I should send out a proposal for these type of jobs and explain to the client in the coverletter that I can do the job in some other software? Do you think its worth the connect ?
