After registering yourself on these platforms you have to search for projects related to your skill sets. Once you find a project of your interest you have to make bids for that work. For eg. There’s a project of data entry and the client has set up a budget of 100$ then you’ll have to make bids under 100$ as there will be many other bidders or you can call them as your competitors who will be willing to get that project too. So you’ll have to make sure you bid according to it.
Getting the first project is the toughest part as clients mostly hire people with more experience and on the basis of good reviews also which you get only after completion of a project. So to make sure you soon find a project, be sure that your profile looks professional, make videos to attract clients telling them about you and your work experience and about your skill sets. if you follow all these things and then you’ll be able to your first project soon. Also you can purchase freelancers monthly package which will allow you to make unlimited bids and also it helps to get you projects soon.
