5 Tips to make money online
No. 01: Furnish your profile professionally
Your profile is the place the employers look to know more about you. Therefore, take sometime to visit the profiles of accomplished users there and customize your profile as to reflect your skills and area of your expertise. If you have previous experience, add those works as portfolio in your profile. It will portray that you are just new to freelancer but not to the business.
No. 02: Focus on Getting Reviews
When you successfully complete a project in Freelancer, employers leave review or feedback regarding your work. It is obvious that employers who post projects look for the reviews of any potential freelancer prior to award the project. If you have reviews, the chances are much higher that the project is be awarded to you. You have just joined and try your level best to receive few reviews. Remember, first job is the difficult one. Therefore, at the beginning try to focus on getting couple of reviews rather focusing on money.
No. 03: How you bid on project matters
Many freelancers even the experienced ones bid projects with a generic message no matter what the project is about. Please don’t do that. Read the project description couple of times to clearly understand the requirements.
Then, try to write your bid accordingly. Here are the key points that you can include in your bid in order to get the attention the your employer.
No. 04: Good time for bidding
In general, most of the employers who post project on freelancer.com are from Europe countries or america (developed countries). It is really cost beneficial for them to use outsourcing platform like freelancer.com than hiring people locally which will cost in multiple times.
On the other hand, most of the freelancers are from developing countries like india, pakistan, sri lanka, bangladesh and so on. The time difference between these two segment of countries is nearly 8 to 12 hours. In my experience of working in freelancer.com for the last several years, here is what I have observed. Those who post the project, post it in the morning and wait until evening or night to receive the bids and award the project to any potential freelancer. Which means if you are from south asian countries, it is likely that the project is awarded in the morning hours. Therefore, bid during morning hours. If you are from europe countries during evening or night hours is suitable for bidding.
last but not the least of 5 tips to make money online in freelancer.com is
No. 05: Ask your clients to post project on freelancer.com

They just join but awarded projects in few days and receive couple of reviews. Now, they are ready to get projects from others and start making money.
