    This is going to be one of a new journey here, if it works well, i will post the exact method on making money section here at Blackhatworld.


    Motivation
    The basic motivation came from the multiple journey threads here and i saw some were able to achieve their targets and in addition with a saying which says that 'Never put all your egg's in one basket', So in an attempt to have multiple earnings, i will see how this method works.


    Purpose of This Thread
    The purpose of this journey is to make money from ever popular freelancing job websites (odesk, freelancer etc..), how i will reach clients, contact them, persuade them to buy my services Also, I'm ready for both side of things, if it didn't work, I'm sure that i will be able to learn alot of things during this venture, off course i will be sharing everything here.

    I will be offering multiple services, and few of them will be outsourced, with various strategies to see which one does work and converts for me. enough being said, Let's see how it goes.

    While you are on freelancer make sure you pass some of basic test they have over there, and if you have some money buy some of advanced ones. Without them I believe you wont find any clients on Freelancer.com.

    DAY 2

    I prepared a message which should be sent in all my bids with few changes with project requirements.

    I applied on some proposals at freelance, Odesk and Elance.

    Also I searched upon Internet to find relevant information on succeeding as a freelancer, some of the tips were encouraging so bookmarked them.

    Also I have my own PPC Service Business which needs to be managed, so i things will go a little bit slow here.

    Let's see how my bid goes.

    Good luck mate. One of my income source is definitely freelancer.com and I am there for last 4 years. From the recent updates, I would like to tell you if you are in SEO,IM business surely pass the English Level 1, SEO Level 1 exams. That will make you eligible to bid in almost all projects there, in that category.
    Plus, freelancer.com's ranking system is based on how much money you earned per project. Lets say if you have 50 reviews and just down to that they have another rating, called earnings and your earnings is $30 per project. So if a man who has only 10 reviews but earned $2k per project, surely he will come up trespassing you. So bid accordingly.
    Anyhow best of luck for your venture.
