How I Earned 700 dollars in few hours from typing | proof | power of freelancing
In this article I am going to show you how I earned $700,which is 40000 INR in just 3 to 4 hours. What exactly happened was, I posted a proposal for a job that was posted on Upwork. The job description was to create cases, where each case would total to 3 to 4 pages. But I refused the offer since I was more keen on working for a fixed price.
After some time, me and the client had a discussion where the client requested to me execute the project since there was 10 days to complete the project. As the client sent me the sample files, I realised that this was a work that could hardly consume 3 to 4 hours to get completed.
They wanted formatting to be done for the case files, so quickly formatted the files within 5 minutes. Which made the client very happy. So they quickly created 7 milestones, paying $100 for each milestone. Even I was concerned for if the client has made a mistake with the payment proposal, but they still confirmed with the same while I clarified.
As started working on the set milestone cases, and submitted them, the client ensured to make me quick payments of $100. This went on for all 7 milestone cases and in the end, client made all the payment to me.
So let me show you the proof of my work and my earnings.
This screenshot displays my profile page at Upwork. You can also see my username in the right corner of the screenshot.
The work scope from the client was to convert PDF to editable word file conversion.
You can also see the details of 7 Milestones of $100 displayed in the screenshot as well.
Initially I did feel a little sceptical on how can a client pay me so much for me on this easy work, but I wonder now probably it was more important for them than I could think. But I realise that the better your profile looked, the better type of clients will approach you eventually.
This article is written to purely inspire you about the opportunities that are available online for freelancers. If you can do your work with all the focus you have while giving the best accuracy the client needed for their work, then earning $700 within 3 to 4 hours can become a regular work.
I understand that this is not an easy task for everyone. But gradually when you get more experience with your work and better hold on what you do, this will be an easy task.
I would also request you to follow these points:
- Always have a clear discussion with clients to understand their needs
- Gain proper trust with your clients, by providing them your work samples
- Ask for all the necessary work documents that can help you with your work.
This is just one such case, there are so many different examples I have encountered in my experience so far.
