Hi,

I totally agree with Snakeair.

When i started working on odesk. My project was for creating flash banners. I bid for that project for $5, i was aware that flash banners cannot be made in $5 but i bid it and i got the job. I worked for around 8hours for designing flash banners. I should have got $200 for the flash banners. But to get going and get started i bid lowest for starting 3 projects. It has been 9 months i am working on odesk as a full time freelancer. I have around 4 fixed client i work for them.

Also i have good feedback from the clients. It's not difficult to be freelancer but you should be good in communication and expert in your skills. I have done almost 40websites and around 200 flash banners on odesk. I work for fixed price. So everyone can join odesk to become a freelancer if you want to join it.

My profile for example: https://www.odesk.com/o/profiles/use...bdd61dbc1e028/

Hi Allen,

If you have already created profile on odesk. So now give test which are available on odesk for SEO.

You have to pass all the test for the following. As this will prove that you are good seo expert {white hat}

1. seo
2. google-analytics
3. on-page-optimization
4. sem
5. off-page
6. backlinking
7. google-searching
8. article-submission
9. social-media-marketing
10.promotions
11.link-building
12.facebook-marketing

When you make profile. Share the url of the websites you have already worked on the seo of websites. You should mention what was achieved when you did seo or sem for that website.

Also mention your services on your profile such as:

SEO Web Marketing,
SEO Strategy, SEO Analyst,
SEO Analysis, SEO Training,
SEO (Search Engine Optimization),
SEO Specialist, SEO Marketing,
SEO Expert,
SEO Consultant for USA, UK, Germany, France Customers,
SEO Campaigns, Yahoo SEO, Msn SEO, Website SEO,
Business Entrepreneur, Google SEO, Google Expert, Google Marketing etc

How to bid..?

1. Start with smaller projects and bid lowest at start.

When you apply for a job on odesk.

Mention in your cover letter, that you have passed the test on odesk and you are capable of doing seo for your project. Also add website link for the seo done by you. What client achieved and how traffic was increased on the website. You can also mention in cover letter, that you are new to odesk so this is your first job on odesk but have good working experience.

Also send me your odesk profile. So i can see and recommend you to my clients as well

Its true that when you are new member on odesk, its really hard to get the job. But If you have patient and you are hard worker. Keep touch with odesk and bids regularly and check your emails every hour, Because Quick Response and better communication is help you to get your first job.

First need to focus on to build your profile on odesk.

As Allen said, it is critical to build a strong profile, spend some time to write a professional looking one, it will help you take a look at others profiles to give you some ideas. Be patient and know exactly what you can do. Don't over/under treat your skills.
