I have encountered a lot of people who wanted to go freelancing but didn’t know where to begin. I was in their situation a few years back. How do I even go about talking about my skills and selling my services? That was the question I have had until I found out about oDesk.
And then how do you even carry on after signing up? Is it as easy as ABC? I reckon you’d think it isn’t, but it’s not as complicated as you’re afraid it is. Really, getting around oDesk and learning the basics of freelancing and how to get paid will not take you an entire day. Truth is, you can be ready to take on your first project as soon as you finish this slide show.
