Hi, I am writing this for newbies.
1- narrow down your school, don’t write that you are master in every skill. (find your niche)
2- think of an attractive headline to promote your service.
3- Start creating your first gig.
4- Select your main category, and write very best description about it.
5- don’t write an essay, write about your experience, your expertise level, and how soon you can deliver.
6- try to bid on buyers requests.
if any one have any problem to understand, I can provide slides ( I am teaching in an academy although I have only 8 ratings right now, there’s secret about it).
