After you complete the course, your bids will:

  • get much higher chance to be awarded;
  • be posted faster (that also helps when a buyer is selecting urgently or for the best price);
  • help you to be more authentic, be YOU.

Practically everything that earned me more than $17,374 on Freelancer (I do work over other outsourcing portals but Freelancer gets me the most income).

You'll get immediately useful information:

  1. How, when and what amount to bid.
  2. What to say in your freelancing bid.
  3. When to emphasize your bid to stand out.
  4. How to estimate your milestones correctly.
  5. What to pay attention on when working per hour.
  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.

How this course is delivered:

  • videos will show you practical tips;
  • document templates will help you bid quickly and
  • resources will be your weapon to build a great profile.

Business Consultant, Enterpreneur and Public Speaker

Matt started freelancing early in the high school, helping people with creating software solutions for their work. Giving more to others than to himself early in student times determined his life path.

He helped established a branch of student organization and participated in several historical projects (like The University Sports Centre 'Leon Štukelj' in Maribor). In 2008 Matt received a Best Innovative Business Plan Award for a plan and presentation by respected local Finance magazine and started a business with the prize money. He breaths, teaches and help people with public speaking.

After hundreds of projects he manages private entrepreneurship and studies in PhD program of Knowledge Management, grabbing the opportunity and hoping to integrate e-learning, gamification and data analysis. Freelancing? Most of the time! And still helping people, wishing to see the sparkle in their eyes after they try his solution and understand possible time savings -- that's the whole reason why Matt does everything for others. He's married, IT graduate and has two kids.
