Said "Hello and Thanks for the friend add. You have an amazing skill drawing and painting . makes me leave the tablet aside and draw on paper again. I would like to ask you if is worth to upgrade a membership on freelanced. seems like that's the only way to get jobs here. Im skeptical that this site has any potential clients. Do you have an advice for me? thank you and good day." to Shawn Saacke Crawford

At first I wasn't sure, but now I do think it made a difference. Besides, it's not that much if you pay the yearly fee. I actually paid it out of my first paying gig on this site. Have you been applying for jobs? I have definitely found that it helps to check the job postings often, to have a chance at being one of the first few to sign-up.

Also, it really does seem to help to friend folks and give kudos. I really enjoy exchanging informal critiques and advice with other artists, even though I try not to invest too much time there. The more you follow, (friend) the more you get feedback from, and kudos. Remember that these show-up whenever a potential client views your work as well. You can also follow potential clients by clicking on their name. It's been a lot of trial and error, and a bit of detective work. All in all, an extremely fulfilling experience for me so far.
Adding more to your portfolio will also appeal to a wider clientele. (Although, I must say that your new profile pic will definitely appeal to the potential female clients out there...and probably a few males, actually. Looks never hurt.)There seem to be animator posts fairly frequently. Do you have any of those works to post in your portfolio? Do you do any video editing possibly? There always seem to be jobs for those as well, and they aren't applied to as quickly, either.
I can't say that I'm making a killing, but at least as much as a 'part-part-time' job. Which would more than likely NOT be art related, or stretch my creative talents, or increase my self esteem as an artist: something I have been missing since teaching art became so stressful.
Being an active part of this community has been very supportive and folks really boost your ego, which in turn fires me up to create more art, as well as apply to more jobs. With the membership upgrade, you can belong to more groups, which also diversifies the visitors who view your site. I've been hired for about 10 jobs now, in a wide array of categories. Being early to apply and long-winded hasn't hurt. I've talked myself into several jobs that I had no experience in, just knew I could do them. I have always been upfront about this to my potential clients, of course. I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone who hires me.
Another thing I do periodically is to check back in on jobs. This has also been worthwhile. I hope this helps. You are extremely talented. Now it's what you do with it I guess.
Good Luck,
Shawn

Hi Giovani,
Just wondering how you're doing and if you decided to upgrade
or not.
