Try to implement these best practices to increase your chances of improving your freelancing business on the website.

Make a good impression. As early as bidding on projects, make yourself stand out from the rest. Present yourself professionally, and tailor your proposal to what the project requires. State what you will provide, how much it will cost, and how long it will take you to deliver.

Background check. Employers consider several factors when deciding who to work with, so it is only fair for you to do the same to them. See the About the employer sections of projects and contests for a general idea about their accounts, payments, and reviews.

Do not bite off more than you can chew. As tempting as it is to accept more projects in order to earn more, compromising quality just to finish the workload that you accepted can reflect on employer rating feedback, which can hurt your reputation on the site.

Stay on the site. Keep communications and payments within This ensures you have the best possible protection in an unlikely event of a dispute.

Be accessible. Make yourself available even if you are away from your workstation.

Go the extra mile. If trying to give your best in all your projects becomes habitual, it will eventually be synonymous to your brand. Employers will keep coming back to you, and your client base will be a lot bigger without you realising it.
