Freelancing panic - help on finding work

Question

Hi,

For the past couple days I've been bidding on projects on freelancer and upwork for Django projects. And all I gotta say is this is extremely demoralizing /saddening.

Many people posting a job there want a $3000+ job in USD for under $500, or some similarly laughable amount.

And the people who actually have a decent price for the work they want done, since most freelancers there are from 3rd world countries, they win the projects because the cost of living for them is much lower than me in the US.

Anyone have any tips? What can I do? Where can I go?

It is true that you need to be willing to do some work for free in your area.  This is how you build trust that you are not a con man. I have talked to a couple of business that were so aggravated by the cost of the update of their website that they decided they did not need one and just took it down. Their business is doing well with older customers, not younger people. There is a way to find your way in. Prospecting clients is not easy but will pay off after a time.

Hello,

I'd suggest getting Stef's Freelancer Course (it's still on sale i think, use his Black Friday coupon)

In case you already did buy his Course, research I guess. There's plenty of work out there that needs to be done. I'm really new to this so don't take this response too seriously. I hope you figure it out.

Cheers !

hello,

Absolutely agree, it's quite unfair to the citizens of highly developed countries. however, if u prove yourself as a really professional specialist in your filed, u will definitely find a client who will pay you as much as you want for your work.

Though freelancing sites create a great ease for developed and even underdeveloped countries to outsource the service but yes, it's a reality most of the project bids are won with low prices. However, there are still some people exist who prefer to go with high bids because of quality. So, all in all, you need to maintain good quality and rating.
