How to get started with freelancing part-2

In this post, we will see simple steps about how to make the cover letter as simple as possible so that you get picked up for the job. It’s mainly written based on the platform of upwork.

If you are already seen the website you would have known what is a cover letter. In case you don’t know, the cover letter is nothing but a proposal letter for a job you apply.

How your cover letter should be


1.Don’t be over grammatic

Don’t make it too complex with so much vocabulary and sentence. Be straight to the point with the list of

  • What you can do on that project which other’s cant do
  • Your past experience on same technology
  • Why he should hire you instead of other applicants

Don’t elaborate on too much sentence. Just write 2-4 lines on each point. If you already have a great profile, just mention some of the projects you did before and ask them to take a look on your profile instead of writing so much about it. This makes it short and simple

2.Be polite and honest

Keep yourself polite and be honest about what you can do and what you can’t-do. Just don’t say yes to everything. If you don’t understand some part of the job in description ask them out and clear it instead of telling understood everything and can be done. This is important because it will avoid communication gap and also lets you do the feasibility analysis.

3.Stick to job description

Stick to the job description and write your cover letter around it. Do not deviate and write something else which the client must not be interested to read. So don’t be a time waster.

4.Ask questions

This is the best way to express that you are more involved in that job rather than just giving it a try. Ask your doubts about the job description. The more you ask and get cleared by the client will increase your chance quickly to get landed on that job. Be reasonable and make sense with your questions. Ask questions only when it’s essential.

5.Start with suggestion

Most of the time, the client might be in a situation which needs a lot of suggestion. So if you feel the job description is in the same area. Start your application with the list of suggestions. When the client is open to suggestion and getting a cover letter filled with the lot of them will surely impress him and get you that job.

And be natural as you are Don’t think too much on it. Write what u feel to write. I hope this helps you to make a good cover letter. The next part is simple steps of increasing your chance to get you landed in the first job.

How to get landed up on a job quickly?


1.Bid low when you start

Don’t consider your first gig as earning consider it as an investment for yourself. So bid as low as possible to get landed up on the first job. I have done my first job for 2$ which was really worth of 25$ project.

2.Keep applying

The key to success is always never giving up. Keep applying till you have the application. More you try, more the probability of getting a gig.

3.Basic tools

Have basic tools according to your skill to quickly create a prototype and show it off in the cover letter. This is a 100% working way that you get the job. But the risky part about is, still, the client can choose some other contractor to do the job. So be wise when you spending time on things before even getting the job.

4.Analyze competitors

The best way to know where you stand is to look at your competitor. So never hesitate to look at your same matching skill freelancer profile. Analyze their profile and try to make a good list of items you should do on your profile to improve yourself. Looking at establishing freelancer on your skillset, will boost you up and motivate as well.

5.Don’t stop

Once you started trying, just don’t stop. Keep going till you achieve the job. Keep trying even if you are not ending up in any gig for months. Keep working on your profile and skills till you getting a job.

All the best for yourself. If you have any doubts please let me know in comments. And subscribe the blog for next interesting post.

How to get started with freelancing?

In this post, we are going to see how to get started with freelancing. I have done freelancing for more than 2 years during my college days. I have made more than 1000$ in upwork (formerly Odesk). This guide going to concentrate on simple steps which you can implement to increase your chances in freelancing.

How to get started with freelancing
How to get started with freelancing


To get started with freelancing you need to have some skills. You don’t have to be an expert, but intermediate skill is essential to make through.

What are the options available?


There are plenty of freelancing platform available online, i am going to recommend you only three sites, which i believe to be easier to get started and having more trust factor.

What do you need to do first?


You need to create a profile on any one of this sites. I have been very comfortable with Upwork, so i suggest you the same to go with. Sign up into Upwork and create the basic process to finish up your profile.

Once you are done creating the new profile you can get started applying to the jobs. Now there are two types of program available one is free and another one is premium.

Free gives you 60 connects while premium not limits yours connects. Connects are required to apply for the job available. With 2 connects you can create 1 application. So you have to choose your projects very carefully.

What’s Next after profile?


We have created a profile and we have started applying to the projects as well. Will you get the job as soon as you apply? The honest answer is NO. Because freelancing platforms are so competitive and there are already plenty of recognized freelancers available in the platform to do the same task.

So your chance is very less with the new profile. So you have to work hard to land in your first job. Once you able to get your first job, you will have a rating and review for yourself which will be helpful while applying for the next job.

So let’s see how to work hard and grab the first. Let’s analyze what’s stopping you from getting your first job.

  1. New profile (Lack of details)
  2. Zero ratings (Low trust)

What must you do for this?


1.A completed profile (100%):

Your profile must be 100% completed. This is the small thing you can do which will impact very huge. If you don’t have 100% completed profile, your connects will be less than 60. Once you make your profile fully complete, you can get 60 connects i.e 30 job applications.

This also provides a lot of information to the platform as well as the contractor. Right, and completed profiles are usually the ones get more attraction.

2.Taking Test:

Don’t hesitate to take the test that is relevant to the skills. Keep repeating it until you score so well on it. So that, you can show that off in your profile. I have taken two test when i started, I kept repeating the test until i scored top 10%.

This is the best way to showcase that you are top on your skills to the client.

3.Good English:

Make sure you have no grammar or spelling mistake in your profile information as well as when you write job cover letters. More professional you are in your English, better the result.Clients prefer people who are easy to communicate with. The medium doesn’t matter whether it’s call or text messages.

Having a good understanding and good command over the language makes everything easy peasy. You don’t have to be a top notch but don’t be so naive while you communicating.

4.Attractive portfolio:

It’s always better to express yourself by the work you do rather than talking or describing it. So create a good number of projects and show it off in your portfolio. Make sure you choose right projects in your portfolio. Add only the projects sound professional and have some use case. If you have already done work outside of the platform, those links would be definitely helpful.

After you have done this. Next thing you should concentrate is on your cover letter which we will be covering in the next post. So stay tuned, ask your doubts in comments and follow us for regular post update.

5 Simple apps that made millions

This is a guest post originally written on yourstory by me. This is just a repost. You can read the full post there.

5 Simple apps that made millions

5 Simple apps that made millions


Ever wondered a simple yo you say to a friend can make you a million. Look at this Yo app. Yo is a one-tap notification app that sends a one-word message -“Yo” – to other users. There’s no nuance to responding to an incoming “Yo”; users can merely “Yo” back.

Seems like a stupid idea? You won’t think the same if I reveal you how much money it made.  It almost valued about 7 million. As every king rise and fall. Yo grabbed up on the ladder so quickly and felt down as quickly as possible too.

Dumb ways to Die

Imbecilic Ways to Die is an okay diversion – it’s an intriguing idea, and it was made truly well, yet in the event that you get down to it, the gameplay isn’t generally all that awesome. Stupid Ways to Die basically includes the same gameplay content again and again, but a tiny bit speedier each time round, and some way or another that has enraptured a huge number of cell phone proprietors around the world.It made $50 million worth of global media value. Definitely not a dumb app in making money.

Flappy Bird

High-fy me if you were also gone to break your mobile because of this addictive game. Flappy Bird received poor reviews from critics, who criticized for its level of difficulty, plagiarism in graphics and game mechanics, while other reviewers found it addictive. At the end of January 2014, it was the most downloaded free game in the iOS App Store. During this period, its developer said that Flappy Bird was earning $50,000 a day from in-app advertisements as well as sales.

Who thought a simple bird game will make people go rogue. The additional fact about this app, after it banned. People who had the game already listed their phone in an auction for $300 to $9000 and made the money as well.
