  6. Ways to contact Freelancer (and when not).
  7. How to start improving your chances to be awarded a project.

All from the 10 years of experience from a freelancer who has started on RentACoder that got renamed to vWorker and acquired by Freelancer.

  • document templates will help you bid quickly and
