    In the start go low and offer quality, later (as you gather 5 star ratings, hopefully) increase the prices and keep the quality.

    For example I have no ratings and there are other 40 applicants who have applied for that.
    How can I compete against them?
    Is it in the way I bid for the projects or is it by lowering my bids?
