Suggestions for newbies

I am wondering how people get their very first order ? I mean how do they convince a buyer to hire them for when they have no experience. I want some useful suggestions please.

If you have no experience in the services you are trying to sell, then you shouldn’t be trying to sell those services. Why would you try to sell a service to someone else, when you can’t complete that service? Pretending to be – or do – something that you cannot will ruin your seller reputation.


The people who get hired do indeed have experience which they present on their portfolio for potential buyers to see. Then after that many other things come into play like price, gig description, fluency of communication, delivery time, online status etc.
