Day 1 of the new WoodyG Voice Over Studio Website and new jobs from Upwork!
So I just wanted to pop in here today and just kind of give you a little bit of an update on what my experience was with WIX. I had to go back into the website and do a little bit of editing making sure that all of the links and I were
correct as well as the mobile site was working and working as I wanted to As well as making sure that things looked right, elements were in the correct positions, and items were really where I wanted them to be and how I wanted them to look.
I did take a little bit of
time this afternoon and posted into my Facebook page so that people can comment and give a little bit more feedback on exactly what they saw on the website and the mobile site. The mobile site is very important as 90% of the people that are going to be looking at my page are really going to be looking at it on a mobile device. I want them to have the best possible experience, as well I want them to have everything right there in the palm of their hands easy-to-navigate, and easy-to-see. So far I am really so pleased with Wix that I just can't stand it. It's been really easy to manage the site, it's been really fun to work with and Updating and editing the pages has been really, really, easy.
So on to bigger and better things! I've been having a little bit of frustration with upwork lately thinking that my profile may not be visible or my proposals aren't being seen. Well, I was wrong. Seems like I got a couple of inquiries today and I'm really really happy that I am visible. My proposals have been seen. And in fact I got a job today. It's not much oh, but I'm really happy to have it as it still reinforces that Upwork is working for me.
And in general I'm really going to use this blog to kind of put my experiences on upwork out there for people to really get a great feel for why Upwork is for me, a really great site.At least it's a great site for me. That being said your mileage may vary. You really do have to put a lot of work into any site to go into, and I heard that one time someone say that you need to master a site and make sure that you know how it works and get the best out of it and then move on to the next site. I tried Fiverr at one time and I think it's a good site, but it does have its internal issues. There's a little bit of a runaway train with customers stealing work from sellers. I know just like any other business, business has its problems. I really don't see Fiverr is doing a lot to police their site in as much as I would like for them to. However if they gave a little bit more to the sellers and had their back a little bit more, I think I would have a little bit more confidence in what Fiverr can offer.
That being said, Upwork is still my number one site for right now. Last month I think I billed over $700 in work. And on Upwork and that really makes a difference. Considering I only grossed $141 on Fiverr my whole time on that platform. And admittedly, I made a lot of mistakes at the beginning. A lot of us do. A lot of people look at Fiverr, and think it's a tough site to be on. You have to sell so much and so little time to get to the next level. And if you're doing jobs for $5, $10 oh, you're not going to get there very quickly. Yes, you can upsell and offer more and more services, but that's really after they order. Plus if you try to upsell afterwards, that's a huge uphill battle.
So my take on this right now is I'm going to stay the course, I worked on my website, I've gotten a plan of action, my next tasks are to make more of this blog, and put out more and more content. So stay tuned! I'm also going to reach out more to LinkedIn, Facebook, as well doing more searches online for other contacts and resources. So keep watching folks and find out what the next exciting episode has in store.
