    I use it a lot but I am on the buyers' site - not sure I can help you here. But I love that marketplace.

    I browsed through the site, created an account. But never worked on it. Maybe sent a few bids here and there.
    But I have been doing fiverr, nothing too big. Just around 300$ earned in almost 9 months. I have been trying to make much more on fiverr but I don't know how to.

    Hope that I get to learn quick here and make 300$ a month. This is my first goal.

    My main income. There are partly well-paying clients, it makes you realizes how much potential there actually is.

    I worked on upwork (it was odesk before) 2010-2014, worked in few hundred projects, worth around 50k$ total (that's not the money I earned, as other people also worked under my team and I had to pay them, I got around 20k$).

    I still have few hundred review on my upwork profile. Sometimes, when I have time or I need money, I still work on upwork. I still have some very old clients whom I got from upwork and still get some projects from them.

    The trick is to do first projects on a very low budget first to get the good reviews.
    However, you should have the really good profile with all tests and stuff
