How to be a Top Rated Freelancer on Upwork

There's no doubt, Upwork (formerly Odesk) is the world's leading online workplace of this generation. It has over nine million registered freelancers and four million registered clients and I am so blessed to be one of those freelancers who has found fortune in doing online jobs.

There's a wide range of jobs to choose from. Based on a research, over three million jobs are posted annually with Upwork. Earlier this year, along with the re-branding of the company, many rules and features were upgraded and modified. Some people say that the current system is better than the old one and some say that the old system is more accessible and gave more opportunities to all types of freelancers.

One of the added features in Upwork is the membership where freelancers can choose between basic and premium membership. Basic or Freelancer Basic members automatically entitled to 60 connects per month which can be used to apply to every job post based on his or her skills, each application requires two connects to submit. Premium membership or Freelancer Plus members are entitled to 70 connects per month which can be rolled over and carry over the following month, it costs 10 USD per month. There are so many changes in the membership system but I believe that whether you choose Basic or Plus, both can be very profitable.

One of the best features in Upwork's newest system is the "Top Rated Freelancer" recognition for every deserving freelancer.  Top Rated status helps outstanding freelancers develop their vocations and turn out to be considerably more effective. When you earn Top Rated status, you will be perceived through a badge on your profile and rewarded with exclusive benefits, including expanded access to employments and priority support.
To be a Top Rated Freelancer, you need to possess these qualities:

  • A Job Success score of at least 90%
  • 12-month earnings of at least $1,000
  • An account in good standing with no recent account holds
  • A 100% complete profile with photo
  • Up to date availability (if unavailable now, set a date estimate)
  • At least 30 days of work history on Upwork
There's no such thing as luck in earning top rated status, it takes courage, hardwork and patience to be one and I'm so blessed that finally, I am one of Upwork's Top Rated freelancers. Being a top freelancer, I can now enjoy all the great benefits given by the company like receiving more opportunities, interview requests for the jobs I did not apply, being always in the client's short list and most of all, my credibility increased to a higher level.

Client's feedback and review is very important in keeping your top rated status and I'm so blessed to meet kind and generous clients who consistently give perfect stars and great reviews. In order to build a good relationship with your clients, you must develope a very good attitude.
