Tap your Elance potential with breakthrough insights

frustrated? you're not alone

The reality is that MANY writers—whether they’re seasoned pros or fresher talent—struggle to find success on Elance.

That’s because Elance is unique—and uniquely challenging. Whether you have decades of experience under your belt or you’re a greenhorn looking to break into the writing profession, the Elance system takes time and patience to master. Unfortunately, many writers give up before they start to see results. It’s easy to become discouraged, disillusioned, and overwhelmed. Maybe you can’t seem to get noticed by buyers. Maybe you don’t know how to find the jobs worth bidding on—jobs that pay well and lead to bigger and better things. Maybe you can’t figure out how to write proposals that get picked—even when your bid is higher than most.

Getting access to insider information is the key to breaking through these barriers to success. This book helps you fast-track your Elance career by showing you the pitfalls to avoid AND the hidden opportunities that newer Elance writers can fail to recognize.

About the author

Hayden Jackson is a Canadian writer and marketing communications specialist currently based in England. When she joined Elance in December 2009, she was new to freelancing and new to the world of online work. Although she started out—just like every Elancer—with no feedback and no earnings, she has gone on to achieve impressive results:
Broke the Elance Top 40 list in the writing category Earned $25,000 part-time in her first year Grew her job acceptance rate from 0% to 25% Grew her repeat business rate from 0% to 40% Maintained a 100% client recommendation rate
Hayden wrote 72 Insider Tips for Elance Writers as a way to share the insider knowledge she gained during her first, successful 18 months as an Elance writer. Although she has since expanded her freelance writing business to off-Elance opportunities, Hayden continues to use Elance as a way to find rewarding writing assignments with quality clients.
