Recently, I had the privilege to chat with a freelancer on TERAWORK. We had a brief chat about his journey in freelancing and he gave me some insights on how he got his first gig.
Read his brilliant story
“I was a student at LAUTECH and we happened to be on strike, you know how it is in Nigeria, I just wanted to make extra income for myself and not lazy about. So, I tried signing up on freelance sites to monetize my skills. Indeed, I never thought a freelancing platform could exist in Nigeria until I tried TERAWORK.
I initially struggled to get gigs upon registering but after a good consultation with the Onboarding team. I was advised to add relevant keywords that will make my page more visible, offer promo deals to quickly rack up gigs and to my utmost surprise, many gigs started coming in, Though, I am based in Osun, I have completed over 21 jobs and 97% of my transactions have been with clients 50 miles apart, no distance barrier on TERAWORK
Personally, I feel the PromoStore has been the greatest add-on which TERAWORK used to make freelancer’s work easier. As a seller, it drives in more gigs for you faster and as a buyer, it helps get access to top professional services at discount rates. TERAWORK is one of the best freelancing platforms in Africa and I will recommend it to others. “

I found his story quite interesting as it buttresses the points made in one of our recent blog titled “5 Reasons You Are Not Selling On TERAWORK and How To Fix It”
Key takeaway: Build impressive profiles and offer promo deals to get noticed, win client’s trust and start flying high.
