What is good everyone and welcome back to another video! This time a weekly vlog about working as a freelance video editor on Upwork and other freelance sites like Peopleperhour, Fiver and Freelancer.com.
I found Upwork through a random travel blog post that I clicked on called ‘how to make money online’ – and once I did, I knew I didn’t want to get a part time job to get through University, but I wanted to freelance online on Upwork as a video editor. Since then I’ve been learning the process of becoming a freelance video editor on Upwork. Learning things like how to attract different clients, carving out a niche in freelance video editing, how to make a living with freelance video editing. Basically, all things freelance video editing on Upwork.
In this weekly vlog I land my first client as a freelance video editor on Upwork which is always a challenge. I’ve got a few questions of how I actually get clients online as a freelance video editor so let me give you a few tips which you can choose to use or not.
1. This only relates to your first one or two jobs, but have a look for things that need to be done urgently, even basic things like testing an app or making a quick video for next to no money. Once you get that job, get a five star review and move on. You need that first 1-3 reviews to get quality work as a freelance video editor.
2. Tailor each proposal to the client. If they’re a business making a video as a Facebook advertisement – speak about advertisements you’ve worked on, or your ideas to capture an audience and grow their business. Be specific about what you can do for them.
3. If you can get work done fast, say you can get a first draft done in 48 hours or so, that way you’ll stand out from other freelance video editors on Upwork.
