    OK, so here's the deal. If you ever wannna make real money, you need investment. SEO, ads, subscriptions to ahrefs, you name it. This is not 2005, where you can make the million by selling pixels.

    So as a newly starting wannabe IM-er, i'm gonna slave my way into some investment money. A couple grands only. And while writing articles for people here on BHW for 2$/1000 words seemed promising at first, I think it's faster if I do it there.

    Not having the time to build a reputable trusthworthy freelance persona, I'm gonna have to improvise. A marketing consultant for that website, an economical analyst for this one, 437% yearly growth for that startup. Nobody will probably check anyway, if my language is convincing enough. Thing is I have no real experience, but having read BHW for the last month, I know I can sound convincing and actually deliver to the client.

    Why I am telling you this. It's fun. And maybe you can give me suggestion/help, to make this even better! Cheers

    upwork nice indeed.

    But the order form they are confusing for beginners.

    Very different from the fiverr and seoclercks very easily on the run

    SUNDAY UPDATE!

    It's been 2 days and I've already recieved my first upwork job offer, for 100$.

    If any of you guys know anything about forum posting or china shipping communities, any advice is greatly appreciated.
    Keep in mind this is my first IM job, so things are going pretty well:rolleyes:

    LOL.... Luv it. Have you started your job yet? One thing, pay attention to emails from upwork that mention rising talent. Once you get tagged as Rising Talent you tend to get more interviews. Copywriting is a good market on upwork. Specifically, email. There should be a swipe file in the download area if you're interested in that topic.

    Good Luck
