Bear in mind that there are other applicants for the job, so if you want to get the attention of potential clients, you need to write an impressive cover letter. It should be well-conceived, well-written, and free of grammatical and spelling errors.

As a freelancer, you won’t have to go through the hassle and hardship of commuting to and from the office. You can work from the comfort of home or anywhere you like as long as you have a computer or laptop and a fast and reliable internet connection.
In addition, you don't have to limit yourself to applying for jobs near your home. You can now work with different clients from different countries. Say goodbye to limits and boundaries and welcome freedom and new opportunities to build a rewarding online career.
However, you still need to apply for jobs the traditional way. You will go through interviews and once hired, you are expected to communicate honestly and consistently with clients. Just like corporate employees, you are expected to deliver excellent work and should adhere to set deadlines.
Working with an online client is similar to working with an employer in a typical office setting. You still apply for jobs that you qualify for, go through interviews and once hired, you have to communicate well with your client and other members of the team. You have to exert time and effort to build rapport with your client.
Select jobs carefully
When a potential client interviews you for a job, don't be hesitant to ask questions. Inquire about details of the project, what the client expects of you and how your performance performance will be evaluated.
Make sure the demands of the job and the desired deadline are reasonable and you have enough time to execute the task well.
If you feel that the project or the client is not the right fit, do not be pressured into accepting it, just tactfully turn it down.
Be proactive. When a client hires you, talk to him/her about the strategy for the project, the frequency of communication and what mode of communication you are going to use (e.g. email, Skype, phone, etc.).
Agree on project deadlines. Make sure that deadlines are reasonable.
Make sure that you have all the information needed to get started with the project.
Maintain constant communication
Communicate with your client on a regular basis - at least once a week. Convey your schedule,what you have already accomplished, what you are currently working on – even if the client is not asking for anything.
Always adhere to deadlines. If you can not meet a deadline, notify your client immediately and inform him/her when you will be able to finish the task.
Respond immediately when a client sends a message. Clients become concerned when a freelancer does not contact them.
Ask your client to provide feedback
Try to submit work earlier than the set deadline so, you can determine if the client is happy with your performance.
Once approved, proceed to the next step.
Make sure that the client has everything he/she needs at the end of the contract.
Whenever we charge a client on a contract, Jobider will receive a share through the Jobider service fee. This represents a certain percentage of the agreed amount for fixed-price projects. The rates, bids, and charges that you see as a client are inclusive of fees.
For Job Bidders (freelancers)
Every time we charge a client on a contract, 8% goes to Jobider, representing the service fee.This means it is the job bidder who pays the service fee, and we never show this to clients. As such, we encourage job bidders to talk to clients about total charges inclusive of fees because clients only see the total billing rate or bid on job applications, contracts and job bidder profiles.
Most of the job bidder reports show only total charges, inclusive of fees. Clients also see these. However, in job bidder pages, we break down fees in the Earnings and Transactions Reports. The total amount that you bill is your legal income and the fees that you pay may be deductible business expenses.
First, you need to create an impressive profile. which will serve as your personal page on Jobider. It is where you introduce yourself and showcase your skills, experienceand expertise. You can share your educational background, achievements and work history. Your profile page is of utmost importance because it will show potential clients why they should hire you. The best profile:
is complete and error-free
has your most recent, friendly and professional-looking photo
has the results of your skills tests to show clients you know what you are doing
When you have completed your profile and passed some skill tests, you can start applying for jobs.
Before applying for jobs, you need to decide how you want to work. You need to ask yourself the following questions:
Do you want to work full-time or part-time?
How many hours can you dedicate to a project?
Once you’ve made the decision, you can start searching for jobs that will suit your skills and preferences. Go through job descriptions carefully to choose which projects you are most qualified for and determine which ones meet your criteria.
When you find the right one, apply using a well-written and error-free cover letter customized specifically for that job.

When job bidders apply to a job, they will see a rate calculator. When figures are entered in the rate calculator, it will estimate how much the freelancer will earn after paying the necessary fees. We charge the client the exact billing rate that the freelancer enters. There are instances when the resulting 8 % fee is a number with more than two decimal points that must be rounded up to the nearest cent with each transaction.
Jobider Payment Protection provides security and peace of mind to clients and job bidders working together on fixed-price projects.
Jobider Fixed-Price Protection
When a client and a job bidder agree on doing a fixed-price project, the client pays the job bidder for deliverables rather than by the hour. This program helps ensure that clients receive work that they asked for. It also ensures that job bidders get paid for work completed. With the Jobider Fixed-Price Protection, clients who make the fixed-price offer will deposit a milestone payment into escrow before work begins. When they receive and approve the work, payment will be released to the job bidder. If the job is not completed as agreed or required by the client, we advise both parties to negotiate the matter before requesting jobider to intervene and settle the issue. If the matter has been forwarded to us, the jobider resolution team will review the statement written during the contract agreement and decide based on the available evidence.
