after getting to know best website next step is to create profile on the website. during creating a profile there are few important things like describe your skills clearly, add your professional photo with a smiley face, complete all relevant tests and add your portfolio means your previously done project if you have otherwise you do not need.

after creating profile next thing is to start bidding with your cover letter. in this phase, you have to focus on the type of jobs which are best for you and are from your skills related. this is an important part if you want to succeed in freelancing. select fixed jobs than hourly, small jobs like $50 to $100. only apply to those jobs which have verified their payment. try to bid on that job which you think you can complete with best results.

3. select small, fixed and skill-related jobs only to bid.
