Freelancers who succeed on popular freelance platforms do two things really well:
One, they write bid proposals that clients can never say “no” to.
Two, they provide quality services that go beyond client’s expectations.
It’s unfortunate that most freelancers often get these two simple things wrong and pay little or no attention to improving these skills.
