I haven't personally worked with oDesk, but as a full time freelance designer/developer... I think you'd approach this the same way you'd approach any other potential project.

 

-- You'd send a response outlining your experience, providing sample projects you've worked on in the past, and explaining how your skills fit with the goals the client is trying to accomplish. What websites have you done or experiences do you have that would allow the client to feel comfortable working with you?

 

-- You present yourself as a professional in any client communication. That means being polite, friendly, and showing you will provide good customer service to the best of your ability. I think this also extends to your portfolio website, your official proposal -- anything physical or digital you send the client. They should all be well designed, consistent, and look like you know what you are doing.

 

-- If you don't have a portfolio website you can link to, I wouldn't apply on oDesk until you do. With clients you work with face to face, it's possible they can overlook a lack of previous work if they are impressed with how you present yourself. But if you are working with clients only online, having a professional looking portfolio site that presents work you've done in the past and information about you helps potential clients be comfortable trusting you.

 

-- I wouldn't apply to any jobs that are outside your experience range, where you have no idea how you will accomplish something. It's OK to push your knowledge a little... for example, say a project requires Wordpress knowledge, which you have, but requires you to perform something Wordpress related that you've never done, that may be fine for you to apply for. But don't take on projects where you aren't confident that you will be able to complete what the client is asking for. That's just asking for unhappy clients and long term issues.

 

-- If you don't have any/very little professional experience, I really wouldn't start with oDesk. I'd start by finding people you can work with locally, connections you make in your everyday life, through friends or family members. Build up some experience and professional knowledge before you start applying to places online.
