We understand that freelancers are passionate about working as customers are in search of value. However, there as some considerations customers have before they request services, and if you do not know these things, you end up losing customers that could be yours without even knowing it.

This lesson will feature four main strong points; Price, Portfolio, Bid, and Service.

  • Price: The is the bone of contention. Why? because most freelancers tend to overprice their services, and the customer can tell when the freelancer is giving a bizarre price that does not match with the overall market price.

There are several reasons why freelancers charge high prices, but there is a comfortable start-up rate that tallies with the market price, (market price is the uniformed price one can get a particular service anywhere). Before a customer will agree to pay more, you as a freelancer will have to show him that you can provide a better service than everybody else.

How do you do that? Keep reading.

  • Portfolio: Your portfolio is like a C.V when you are on a freelance site, you need to show your potential customers your previous jobs, your reviews, and a smart and catchy bio that can be attractive enough to make customers pick you.

You can learn how to update your portfolio here.

The next thing you need to learn is about your Bids.

  • Bids: Bids is the systematic process of you putting a tag on yourself/service so the customer can know your worth. Most Pros, make the mistake of putting a high charge on their service without really explaining to the customer why he should pay that amount for the service.
N.B: A PROPER BID SHOULD HOLD THE PRICE AND A GOOD REASON FOR THAT PRICE. FOR EXAMPLE, IF I CHARGE 50,000 FOR A WRITING TASK WITH THE MAKET PRICE OF 20,000, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO ADD A CATCH LIKE, " Can deliver task within three days and can give room for 4 corrections"
  • Service: The last on the list is your service. for you to be a top pro, you must have worked your way through a long list of customers who have been satisfied with your service and can pay any amount for you. It’s not magic, it’s hard work.

Most professionals don’t work or want to do the work. But we at Ubuy are committed to helping you give the best service, and get the due reward for your service.

Now you know how to make your profile attractive, try these tips in your next bid. We wish you the best of luck in your freelance journey.
