    I came up with this laying in bed one day and picked up my phone to write it down.

    I had this in mind for a TV commercial or radio ad, but it might work as web copy as well.

    It's not perfect, but feedback?

    For the first day's challenge, I shared a FB post of one my friend looking for an acoustic expert.

    Also, someone was asking for recommandation to help quit smoking and I recommended her a book I know have allowed several of my friend to quit this habit. (to make my message stand out I used some techniques I've read in CASHVERTISING, because I believe this book can help her)

    Lex, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your threads about using the gig market sites for immediate cash flow through copywriting! This is the ray of hope, the breath of fresh air I needed NOW in what had become a grim, dim and stagnant situation! I read your advice over the weekend and will get my profiles up tomorrow... will report back when I've done that, or, if I get stuck so that I can get unstuck ASAP. My plan is to use your techniques to climb out of the immediate hole within days to weeks... then transition over to Fox's web agency model within the next few months... and then move on to some bigger long term ideas I've had for a while, but that have been out of reach because I didn't have a short term action plan. I'm so grateful for your generosity sharing your experiences and advice! - Chris

    Lex, I need to ask your advice about the registration process on Upwork. There are some specific points where I'm stuck. If these are already addressed in your videos or posts, I apologize and would appreciate a link to what I can review further.

    As this kind of agency platform is a new experience for me, I read through ALL of the legalese. I find it intimidating that there is such a huge volume of terms and conditions. Also, I find it worrisome that the terms include that if they merely "suspect" (with no need to explain, let alone prove) a terms violation, they can freeze accounts and withhold payments, with no way to appeal. I've found examples of people who claim that as freelancers they were screwed over in this way. What's a good way to think about this?

    I read through the support info about creating a profile. I didn't see a way to say, "I'd like to communicate with prospects, but right now today I'm fully booked, so I can't promise an immediate job." My fear is that a client could start a conversation assuming that freelancers are available, and then get disappointed that I reject an offer, and maybe this could count against me?

    I'm confused by the verbiage about names. In particular, can the user name be anything or must it be your legal name? If you use a pen name, e.g. "Sales Writer," at what point does the client have to be provided your full contact info?

    How important are video chats in your experience? Are plain old phone calls acceptable, or considered passe by clients?

    Thanks!

    You can fear what might happen and make $0...OR...you can get started and make as much money as you can while you can and do you best not to violate the terms of service Upwork cares about (for instance, mentioning PayPal in a chat conversation).

    You can worry about what might happen with clients if you get started...OR...you can get started and deal with problems only if they arise. Set your availability to 30+ hours and if you can't work with a client, just let them know.

    Usernames can be anything you want. Clients don't see your username. They see your real name, and your real name is required to get paid. You can hide your last name and only show your first name and last initial if you want though.

    Video or phone calls are fine. Pitching price in a chat message is how you get low rates and bad clients. Most clients are happy to talk on the phone, audio chat, or video chat.

    Thanks for the super helpful reply, Lex. I've been looking at both Upwork and Fiverr this week. Today I figured out exactly what goes on my Fiverr profile. I found about a dozen categories where I can make gigs, need to narrow them down to the initial seven and get them posted. Will follow through with Upwork tomorrow.
