Have you been scared away from using Upwork by rumors of low pay, high fees,  and difficult clients? Me too! 

I’m so excited to hear what Laura Briggs has to teach us about how she created a six-figure business using Upwork. If you’ve shied away from Upwork, or tried it and had a bad experience, I encourage you to listen to this whole episode, because Laura has some amazing advice and insider knowledge about how to make Upwork really work for you. 

Laura has her own writing business, she helps other freelancers learn how to scale their business, and has one book out with another on the way. She is such a wealth of knowledge and it’s an honor to have her on the podcast today.

Value Bombs:

 

  • What Upwork is and who it’s for 
  • How to build your reputation and get testimonials 
  • How much Upwork costs and how to include those fees in your bids 
  • How Laura has used Upwork to get a client on retainer for four years on a $26,000 a year contract, as well as a $50,000 ghostwriting gig 
  • Which services are and are not going to perform well on Upwork
  • How to use Upwork’s feedback features to your advantage 
  • How to get onto Upwork if you’re brand new and haven’t had any clients 
  • The value of using video to connect with potential clients 
  • What clients really care about when they’re considering hiring you 
  • How to beat someone in a pitch that you can’t beat in price 
  • Why you shouldn’t take all job postings at face value 
  • Action steps for someone who wants to try out Upwork

 

Before talking to Laura, I really didn’t know anything about Upwork, and now I’m wondering if I’ve been missing out! I hope you’ve learned something new, and maybe even have a different perspective too, whether you plan on using Upwork or not. 

I would love for you to reach out to Laura, tell her any aha moment’s you had, and connect with her. And then if you’re trying out Upwork, let me know in a DM!  You can find me over at @brandimowles. Snap a picture of this and let me know if you’re going to try Upwork or not! I can’t wait to chat with you.
