I think I am too much in detial oriented and my boss always says I spend too much time with that. (Of course he wants me to do something else too)

How to get first freelance job on GAF

logo-gaf.gif

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
  • Keep trying
  • 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 🙂
