I have a very difficultly to get a first freelance work online from website Get a freelancer. I think it’s because of I am too new there and don’t have any feedback and rating at all. Another thing is my English is not professional to communicate too.
So I think I need help and I ask from my addicted forum, Digital point, and I got the answers from many people.
The answers is rearrange by following:
Bid lots of projects
Low your price in first project
Stop asking people to contact you. They already posted the job, they shouldn’t have to contact you. You contact them.
Improve your English, use a spelling checker or every time yuo post get a buddy to fix your grammar/spelling. It’s really working against you.
Post a bit more text. 2 or 3 sentences (no bullshit like you kow C++ and shit like that) with your bid that shows the buyer you can do it. Then PM them with 2 or 3 paragraphs outlining how you would do it and what you need and that you are ready when they are.
To get the job is just submit a demo
Thanks for w3bmaster, T0PS3O and Michael_Goldman whe dedicated time to gave quality answers.
After I read those suggestions, I got back to my profile on GAF site and have my native-English-speaker friend corrects them. Then I have bid more projects as a low price as I can accept with PMs them the flow chart and mentioned to all works that related with their project.
The next day I have won the project 🙂
Happy New Year 2007 for everyone
Even there are bombs in town, but I do celebrate anyway. I wish everyone happy all year long.
This year I went to @Richards (again) and met few friends. I was a good time since it’s a long time I didn’t go out.

There are manything still twirling in my mind, but I will loosening the knot each day in living life in this year..
Happy new year everyone.
I started to get a freelance job from the internet. This one is the first project I got from AtlanticSoft at GAF which I bid really low price, $50, because I wanted to win the first project so bad. I believe this my work worth more than $200.
The project is about create the function of quote system for drug store, zencart system. Customer can fill the form from that prescription, then the store will give the price.
The website and all logo will be removed because the project owner ask not to reveal, but please refer to GAF project.
See the screenshot below. The actual site is different than below images a little bit.
This is the quote form with 5 sets of product form.

The last two days ago my internet connection was immediatly slow in the morning. I think True internet might has problem as it always.
I went to work as usual then found that I couldn’t check my email at work too. I asked if there were such a problem before I came, they said yes.
Immediatly client call that they can’t check emails.. blah blah blah.. I have to explain it’s internet problem, not our web hosting.
The lastest news said that it’s because the earthquake in Taiwan area broke the internet backbone. It will take 7 days to fix it and will take one month to completely fix.
So I am here with slow internet. helloooooo can you hear me?
I don’t know what to do on holidays now. The internet is too slow.
I am thinking about what to do for long holidays and I found that I have something to do.
To keep me busy and not to spend money. LOL
If I don’t have any project coming for this holidays, I will add the new design to my blog 🙂
I will seperated the sections for public access so I can add my person work stuff and portfolio in it too. Hopefully this won’t make my readers bored.
I think I will not mess both stuffs together. LOL not sure.. let see.
I suppose to have some drink after work, but then remind me to count cash in my wallet.
Then I thought about what I have to pay.. rent, telephone, mobile phone, internet, electricity, web hosting, domain name, credit card, loan, blah blah blah… suddenly I walk backward to the way home. LOL
It’s ok.. Christmas still have next year to celebrate. I prefer to be responsibility to all those thing better than just have fun for a few hours. 🙂
Anyway I still enjoy the holidays time.. I do smile a lot and think about many good thing in my life and good thing to people I know.
