"Been devouring your lessons since Sunday. Got my first private invite today. No reviews. No Upwork history. Hired for $95/hour. And it's a writing project I actually want to do. Jaw, meet floor."

"I just spent +-2 hours optimising my profile following the lesson titled "Endless Invites" and *BAM* hit 1st position in Upwork search results for one of my target skill sets. So yah - this stuff really works!"

Yes, you can earn $50,000 - $100,000

doing what you love on Upwork

I know because I've been doing it for the past 4+ years.

And since I started off with no experience, no formal training or education, and no network whatsoever...

I think it's safe to say that earning great money on Upwork is something anyone can do, if you're willing to put the work in.

One involves being chronically overworked and underpaid.


Freelancers who take this route spend lots of time bidding on job after job, day in and day out...


Seldom get hired (or even hear back from clients)...


And end up taking jobs at painfully low rates just to make ends meet.


They'll give you "logical" reasons for being overworked and underpaid, like...


"There's too much competition on Upwork"


"Everyone here charges too little and drives the prices down to nothing"


"There aren't enough high paying clients"


But they're mistaken.


The truth is, they're "doing" online freelancing totally wrong.


There are two ways to make money on Upwork

Luckily, my way of making money on Upwork involves having fun, being as profitable as you want to be, and enjoying your freedom.


It involves more work up front, but...

 

Upworkers who take this route don't spend nearly as much time bidding on jobs.


They win more work, with less effort.


They get lots of repeat business from happy customers.


They charge -- and get -- higher prices. (Some even charge premiums.)


And clients often seek them out, rather than the other way around.

 

I know, because I've just described my students. Students of this course.

 

Like these cool peeps...

 
 

"It's not really like work to me because I'm enjoying what I do. I'm so much happier, and I have the freedom to create my own schedule. I have the freedom to travel."

"I had zero Upwork hours worked, zero client feedback, I had no history whatsoever...and I got the job."

Upwork Gives You Ultimate Time Freedom

One of the amazing things about succeeding on Upwork is that it doesn't just put money in your pocket. It's also a lifestyle tool.


Freelancing online has allowed me to pay all of my bills and then some since day 1, with absolutely:


  • NO networking...
  • NO cold calls/emails...
  • NO blogging or social media marketing...


And none of the other headaches that most freelancers think of as "necessary evils."

Best of all, my schedule has stayed full of great paying work, week in and week out, for over 2 years.


Yes, thanks to Upwork, I've managed to totally escape that nasty "feast or famine" cycle that most freelancers find themselves trapped in.


It really wasn't for me. I want to feast all the time. How about you?


So, without further ado...

Introducing Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker

Your shortest path to earning an additional $1,000, $5,000 or even $10,000+ per month...

Based on over 5 years of experience, research, and testing, this course offers strategic and psychological approaches that fly in the face of the conventional wisdom that has proven useless on platforms like Upwork.

What you'll find inside 

Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker 

Your Big Picture Game Plan

LESSON 1

You can't earn $50k-$100k on Upwork just by doing a lot. 


You need a proven plan. 


See how my 3-point big picture strategy earns me (and my students) more money in less time. Learn why "getting more clients" should not be your goal. Discover the invisible game the Old Pros don't want you to know about. And more.

MODULE 1: YOUR BUSINESS

LESSON 4

Eliminating Competition: The Art of Strategic Positioning

Most freelancers drive down their own value by appearing just like one another (usually while blaming clients or "the global marketplace" for their failure). Learn how you can position yourself to stand out from the pack, and appeal strongly to the best clients--without having to compete on price.


See how I charge more than all of my competitors on Upwork, without being especially talented or having credentials. Find out why I want some clients to choose my competition over me, why clients don't want to hear about how good you are, and more.

BONUS LESSON

Inside the Mind of the Premium Client with Chris Davis

In this exclusive interview, entrepreneur and longtime Upwork client Chris Davis and I dive deep into the psychology of what it takes to win over the best clients on Upwork. In addition to being a client of mine, Chris also regularly sells websites he builds for up to 10x what many of his competitors charge. 


For the first time ever, Chris and I go over the exact step-by-step sales process I used to sign him as a $135/hr. client, the psychological barriers that prevent freelancers from charging what they're worth (and how to get past them), what to do when clients ask you for "guaranteed results," the counterintuitive qualities that high-end clients really look for in a freelancer (hint: it's not what 99.9% of freelancers think), getting upfront deposits from clients, and much more.


The first job Chris hired me for

LESSON 2

The Psychology of Attracting High-Quality Clients

It's no fluke that lots of Upworkers just do okay, while an elite few have more high paying work than they know what to do with. Learn the key business principles these winners have successfully borrowed from companies like Apple and Starbucks, and applied to freelancing. 


Find out the truth about why some freelancers are always stuck with lukewarm clients, no matter how hard they work. See why even the best clients are willing to pay certain freelancers very well, but not others. And more.

LESSON 3

Average freelancers set up shop on Upwork, then wonder why great clients don't beat a path to their door. But the best clients don't show up by accident. 


Find out what they're really looking for (hint: it's not "competitive pricing" or years of experience)--and how you can give it to them, even if it's your first day freelancing. Learn how I strategically decide which jobs and clients to target, how I charge more than 99.9% of freelancers, why I get better results by offering fewer services, and more.

Designing a High-End Freelancing Business

LESSON 1

The Psychology of the Hidden Upwork Economy

I've been getting premium Upwork clients to come to me for years--with little to no competition. Find out why some of the top clients don't post public jobs, how to get found by them when they search for freelancers, and how to make your profile irresistible to them so they invite you to their job.


I'll show you the 7 ways most freelancers mess this up (even the Old Pros who should know better, but don't). And I'll give you a successful, proven framework you can use to make your profile "sticky" (even if you're brand new).

MODULE 2: YOUR LEADS

LESSON 3

The Science of Winning First Impressions

Human beings are wired for snap judgments. The latest research shows that clients size you up in 1/100th of a second--and this is before they even interact with you personally.


Learn the surprising science of how to win clients' trust instantaneously, without any effort whatsoever. See why this impacts how many jobs you get, how much you're able to charge, and even how happy clients are with your work.

BONUS LESSON

Profile Teardown Sessions

Do you know why top performing athletes pay millions of dollars to have coaches looking over their shoulder? It's to point out the subtle mistakes that creep into their work -- mistakes which are impossible to pinpoint when you're the one making them.

LESSON 2

Commanding Attention in the Crowded Marketplace

You have literally 3 seconds to stand out from the crowd and get noticed by clients on Upwork.

Learn the 6 cardinal sins made by even experienced professionals, and what you should do instead.

BONUS LESSON

BONUS LESSON

Endless Invites: Advanced Profile Optimization

Having a great profile is one thing -- ensuring the maximum number of clients see that profile when they search for freelancers on Upwork is another. Making your profile more visible to clients is the fastest, most effective way to get great job invites from awesome clients who can't wait to work with you.


That's why my team and I spent 8+ months analyzing and testing every aspect of Upwork's search algorithm, to determine exactly what it takes to get your profile seen by more clients than ever before. (Even I was surprised by many of the results we discovered, and I've been using Upwork for years as a freelancer and client.)


In this lesson, you'll learn exactly how to tweak and optimize your profile to help you get found by Upwork clients searching for freelancers, as well as showing up as a "Suggested freelancer" to clients who've already posted jobs.

Screening questions can either be a frustrating hurdle, or an opportunity for you to shine. Shed light on the automatic behavior (learned in childhood) that causes most freelancers to answer screening questions totally wrong. 


See why clients use screening questions in the first place, and what they're really looking for when they ask them. Learn about the predictable (and underwhelming) answers the majority of freelancers use for the most common questions, and how they backfire--as well as what you should do instead. See actual examples of winning tactics, and more.

Video Case Study: Sharmin Wins Her First 2 Clients (as the Highest Bidder)

You'll get an inside look at how I deep-dive into the strategy and psychology behind writing great proposals, and making yourself irresistible to the client who's reading it.

MODULE 4: YOUR RESULTS

Would you rather spend half your time hunting and pecking for new clients--or get emails from half of your previous clients asking you to do more work for them? 


Get the formula I've used for turning over 50% of my clients into repeat customers who keep me busy month after month, so I can make more money, without having to spend my valuable time looking for new work. 


Freelancers who complain about the "feast or famine" lifestyle don't understand the psychology of repeat business. They think you need to find new client after new client in order to make money at freelancing -- I call this "Revolving Door Freelancing", and it's a totally backwards approach. 


Learn how to avoid this, how to get great reviews from your Upwork clients, and more.


LESSON 1

Unlimited ROI: How to Leverage One-Off Jobs into Clients for Life

BONUS LESSON

Behind the Scenes Call With Jake Jorgovan (Graphic Designer & Author of How to make $1,000+ Per Week on Upwork)

You'll get practical, real world strategies and tactics that anyone can apply immediately to earn more with less effort.

BONUS LESSON

Field Report: How Oleg 10x'd His Income From a Single Client

Wondering if you're good enough to do a great job for a client is a common fear -- and not just for beginners. Every time I've raised my rate or forayed into a new project I didn't have experience with, there's been a little voice in my head asking, "Can you really deliver on this one?"


In this exclusive talk, I uncover the hidden psychology behind this fear, and show you how to silence that voice and succeed fearlessly on Upwork. You'll also hear from Josh M., who started on Upwork with no experience, and now commands over $125/hr.

  • The key to getting paid for the value you offer to clients, instead of just getting paid a “fair” hourly wage 
  • How to charge above average or even premium prices without being the most experienced or educated person in your field 
  • How Steven deals with the fact that clients can see he used to charge less when they look at his Upwork profile history 
  • And more...

LIMITED TIME BONUS #1

I'll Personally Review Your Proposal

Imagine you and I sharing an office together…


You see an Upwork job post that catches your eye…


You whip up a proposal (the way I teach inside Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker)...


Then you lean over, tap me on the shoulder, and ask me to read it over and tell you what I think of it -- including what I think you did well, as well as how you could make it even better.


I look it over carefully, then offer a few specific, actionable tips for making it 10x more effective. You quickly revise it to incorporate my suggestions, and, within minutes, get an excited response from the client, which leads directly to an exciting offer to hire you!


Or maybe you've sent out a few proposals you thought might get a response, but didn't hear anything back on any of them -- so you decide to show me one and get my opinion, as well as some specific tips for how to improve going forward.


Great news: This is closer to reality than you might think.


If you join Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker this week, I'll personally review one of your proposals, and give you detailed feedback on exactly what you've done well, as well as specific, actionable advice on what else to include, where you can improve, and exactly how to do it.

LIMITED TIME ONLY

LIMITED TIME BONUS #2

Personalized Profile Review (From Me)

Yes, it gets even better: I'm doubling down on my commitment to helping you succeed and get real results on Upwork.


In addition to personally reviewing one of your proposals and giving you actionable advice on how to make it even better, I'll also personally review your Upwork profile, and let you know exactly how you can improve it to attract personalized invites from awesome clients who will be chomping at the bit to hire you.


On the few rare occasions I've done this for people, the results have been phenomenal. One of my students, Beth H., received a personalized invite from a $20,000+ client almost immediately after implementing my suggestions on her profile.


These are bonuses I've never offered, and I may never offer them again. 


Many people think I'm crazy to offer it in the first place since it's going to require a lot of work on my part.


Business and marketing "experts" tell me I should focus my time on selling more courses and making more money -- not reviewing hundreds of Upwork profiles from Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker students and giving personalized feedback on each one. Isn't the point of selling an online course to make as much money as you can with as little effort as possible?


NO. HELL NO.


The point of selling an online course is to help your students succeed!


That is why I've decided to offer these new bonuses -- at no extra charge, no less. If I wanted to I could easily create an upsell for these bonuses and charge more for them -- in fact they are easily worth hundreds if not thousands of dollars. But I'm throwing them in, at least for anyone who joins Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker this week, as part of my commitment to helping you succeed.


Yes, I want to help you get real results and WIN. Even if it means I personally earn less money (which I'm not convinced will happen because I know from experience that the more people I help succeed, the more my course sales grow -- this is why thousands of people have already joined, and counting). And I'm especially happy to devote some of my own time and energy to helping you do even better.


Mind you this is something I have never offered before, and I'm not sure if I'll ever offer it again. But if you join this week you'll get it, at zero additional cost beyond the price of the course. Which I think is a great offer, especially when you consider that I don't even offer this as a paid service (even though there is a lot of demand and people are willing to pay very well for it, I just don't have the time to do it for everyone). 


This is only available to students of this course -- period. For you I will make time.

Lifetime access to the SSFU private community forum

Secrets of a Six-Figure Upworker is more than just a course -- it's also a thriving community where both new and experienced Upwork freelancers ask each other questions, share winning approaches, and give and receive support and accountability. Make no mistake about it: This isn't the typical "course forum" where you might find one message posted every other week. We have hundreds of members participating in daily discussions, so you can get help whenever you need it.

"Almost as soon as I signed up (and thanks primarily to the revolutionized proposal-writing strategy I've been using based on your advice), I've found some great clients and am now making $60/hour on several longterm projects!"

Rachel S.

SSFU Student

"Before I took Danny's course, my earnings would be all over the place from $30 to $60 per hour. I took a big break from bidding on the site, and came back to it after taking this course. And with Danny's help I landed a $125 per hour gig right out of the gate!"

Oleg S.

SSFU Student

"I get to see my daughter off on the bus every morning. I'm here to pick her up every day when she gets home. I'm in a lot more control of my life."

Ari Z.

SSFU Student

"In one year I had replaced my corporate income. I've told several people since that the course would have been worth it if priced 10x what it is."

Elyse S.

SSFU Student

How is this course different from other Upwork-related courses?

The difference between this course and other books, videos, and paid trainings that claim to teach you how to make money on Upwork (and other freelancing sites) is that I've personally used this exact system to earn over $100,000 in just a single year.


I've seen other courses too. And I'm a guy who likes to invest money into training. But notice how those other course instructors never seem to post screenshots of their earnings--or, in some cases, even TELL you how much they've made. Curious, no?


By all means, purchase whichever course you like. But before you do, send a quick email to the person behind it, asking them how much money they've actually EARNED using the approach they're selling. And ask for screenshots (likes the ones on this page).


If all they can produce are meager earnings for themselves, how are they going to help you earn the kind of money you want and deserve from your online freelancing career?

 


"I got my first $1000 plus contract this week. It's not just the size of the contract, my whole approach to freelancing on Upwork has changed. I'm only picking clients that I really want to work with and I'm making sure I am the best decision they have made recently. It's such a different approach the how I was working before."

Josh P.

SSFU Student

"Danny gives amazing advice! As a newbie to freelancing, I needed help navigating how to highlight my unique skill set, write an exceptional freelancer profile, and winning proposals. After joining Danny's course, I was able to write my 1st proposal, which secured a job paying almost $50 per hour! I strongly recommend this course as a way to advance your freelancing career!"

Cynthia S.

SSFU Student

"Danny gave away such good advice for free that I thought 'Okay, if the free advice is this good, I think it's going to be worth the investment to see what I can gain from his class.'"

So I'm willing to guarantee your results. If it doesn't work for you, you don't have to pay. Why should you?


If you follow the action steps in the course and don't get results, you can opt-out for a full refund within 30 days of signing up. Just email me, show me you did the work, and I'll send you a full refund.

Join the Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker waitlist and be the first to know when enrollment opens up again.

"I signed up for Upwork at the beginning of this year. I was like all the other 99% of freelance web developers who were doing everything wrong. In 6 months, I only managed to land 3 clients total. I was working at low rates ($10/hour), sending out proposals every day and working long hours.


When I saw Danny's course, I knew it was time to get it and improve my business. By the time I'd sent out just 4 proposals, a client had already responded to one of them! I was so excited, but at the same time I saw the client was interviewing 2 other freelancers as well, both of whom had more experience than me. But because I was prepared, the client chose ME.


Last month, I landed 2 new clients from Upwork. The first project was of $2,000 and the second one was twice the first one: $4,000! I earned $6,000 worth of projects in a month! And did I mention I live in Bangladesh, where $650/month is considered middle-class income?


This course is awesome. And by awesome I mean REALLY AWESOME! Anybody who is willing to level-up his/her freelancing career should definitely take this course. BIG BIG BIG thanks to Danny for all the hard work you've put into this."

Abraar A.

SSFU Student - Ruby On Rails Developer

"Just nailed a $5000 Wordpress development flat rate contract! First one since starting the course. I also just had an interview with another new prospect yesterday from New York with long term projects available. Went awesome and I landed the contract! She said 70 people applied and I was the only one who remotely tried. A few prospects even sent what she called 'rude' letters of introduction! Thanks again Danny!"

Ben M.

SSFU Student - Web Designer and Developer

"Before Danny’s course, I’d spend hours applying for jobs and not win any. It was disheartening. After implementing Danny’s method, everything changed. I've been getting invited to high quality jobs, and I now know what to say and how to win them.


Last week alone I landed 2 jobs that paid $1,300 using the exact strategies Danny taught me! And both were the highest paying freelancing jobs I’ve had to date. I highly recommend Danny’s course!"

Jalanda J.

SSFU Student - Marketing Strategist

Proven to work across different ages, skill levels, countries and interests

"I applied for a gig transcribing oral histories and this is the response I got to my proposal: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE your slogan. I'd love to give you a try. I have TONS of work. HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS!"


I went on to do a sample transcription test for her, and she loved my work. This is also a top-tier client with many great reviews that has paid out a lot of money over the years.


I'm really excited to finally have hit it! She's going to send me work every day. This gives me hope that I can eventually actually replace my full-time job with freelancing. Super excited!!"

Jamie B.

SSFU Student - Transcriptionist

"Danny, what you have made is very cool! Not just the videos... The forum is truly great and the people there are really nice. I totally got what I was looking for: clear, precise and inspirational presentations that are helping me rethink how to be a professional freelancer. If it were not for you, I would have fallen into many of the traps you are describing."

Thomas K.

SSFU Student - Wordpress Developer

"I was invited to a job to improve a slideshow presentation for $100. But thanks to Danny's course, I was able to earn $950! $100 to review the existing presentation; $500 to improve the design; and the client gave me a $350 bonus!"

Eleanor J.

SSFU Student - Graphic Designer

"I started in late January, and by the end of March I had raised my rates up to $75/hour...and I was winning jobs at that rate!"

Daniel T.

SSFU Student

"I can grow this to whatever extent I want to and I'm not limited...by age or geography or anything else."

Hans H.

SSFU Student

"I signed up for your course on Sept. 1st. Since then I've earned $6k+ and just closed a contract for $3200, which means by the end of the month I will have earned close to $10k within 3 months of taking your course, and it continues to snowball.


After I used your techniques to win my first substantial job and earn a stellar review, I went from never getting a job invite to averaging 1-2 invites a day! And this is for WordPress development, which is a very competitive niche, but with your help I figured out a way to stand out from the crowd.


What's really funny about all this is I almost didn't bother with Upwork because a colleague of mine said he tried it and it was impossible to make money on there.


So glad I found your course. Thanks for being awesome :-)"

Answers to common questions about 

Secrets Of A Six-Figure Upworker

Is this course for beginners or experienced freelancers?


I created this course for both beginners and veterans alike. There are many seasoned freelancers who realize that mastering the game of Upwork can help them significantly increase or even 2x their current income. I'm also uniquely qualified to teach newbie freelancers since I started out as an online freelancer in 2012 with no experience whatsoever.



Is this course for people new to Upwork, or ones who have been using it for awhile?


Both. I've had plenty of people sign up for the course after being on Upwork for 1-3 years, and many who hadn't even created an account yet or won their first job. So I can now say from experience that both groups can benefit greatly.



Is this course only for writers?


Absolutely not. Many different types of freelancers have taken the course and successfully used these strategies to earn more money. These include graphic designers, transcriptionists, web developers, IT and engineering professionals, consultants, translators, and more. The skills I teach are designed to win on Upwork across all categories.



What if I don't want to spend more time and energy marketing myself on Upwork?


That's exactly the point of this course! I want you to spend less time looking for clients, not more. The approaches I teach are designed to help you get maximum effort without having to spend hours on end looking for new clients. If you're someone who hates having to constantly market and sell yourself online (Upwork included) then this course is for you.



How long is the course?


There are currently 25+ lessons with over 15 hours of exclusive, premium content. I've also included checklists, worksheets, and cheat sheets to help you get the most out of the material. Downloadable audios and transcripts are also provided alongside the videos.



Are updates included with the course?


Yes. Whenever the course is updated, you'll immediately be notified by email and get access to any and all updates instantly at no additional charge, forever. I've already updated the course several times, adding more content, tools and resources to help you win.



Is there a money back guarantee?


Yes, absolutely.  


If you follow the action steps in the course and don't get results, you can opt-out for a full refund within 30 days of signing up. Just email me, show me you did the work, and I'll send you a full refund.

"Thanks to Danny's great hints, tips and expert advice, I quickly started attracting clients on Upwork. Before I knew it, I had 2 regular clients that offered me weekly work, and another 7 clients on the go with smaller projects. My hourly rate has gone from $30 to $65. I had to increase it because I was getting too much work (a really nice problem to have!)."

Ellenor D.

SSFU Student

"My main goal for freelancing was to be able to make enough money so I could stay home and raise my son, and not lose money going back to work and paying for day care. So tonight, as I was getting ready to go to bed I got an invite to interview. It was a gig from someone who was looking to have a pocket proofreader. I was the only person that the client invited to interview. Within a half hour of him having the job posted he had hired me. The changes that I've made since starting the course have sealed the deal for me staying home and not going back to work for $13/hour since I just landed a job for $25/hour!"

Calyie M.

SSFU Student

"I've gotten my first really serious client, who I've already done $400 of work for, and several others for one-off projects. It looks like February is going to be my first $1000 month as a freelancer!"

"Danny's course is a game changer! Thanks to what I've learned, I've revamped my entire approach from top to bottom. Want to talk about results? After just a few days, I'd already seen a better response rate to my proposals, with two deals closed quicker and easier than ever before...and no doubt more on the way."

Nate F.

SSFU Student

"As promised, the final agreed upon figures for my first client after taking your course: we're doing a long term retainer arrangement. $825/week for the first six weeks and then $6600/month after that. I received my first payment today. But it's not even the money I'm excited about. This client is perfectly aligned with the kind of work I've been wanting to do for years. Their mission, their vision, their desire to grow the services I provide them. I get to build my own independent company sooner than I thought I could. I get to read and write everyday for work. #nerdfreakout You're awesome."

Daniella M.

SSFU Student

"Just wanted to let you know that the things you have taught me have made all the difference in the world. In just the last 5 weeks, I have become one of the most sought-after fiction ghost writers on Upwork. I now have several clients who want new stories from me every week. I'm pulling down almost $1,500 a week, now. Not bad for a guy who's only been on the site for 3 months, right? So thank you very much for all the things you have taught me. It's made a world of difference for me and my family."

Wayne H.

SSFU Student

"I put Danny's lessons into effect and scored my first job -- the first job I applied for right after taking the course!"

Sandra M.

SSFU Student

"When I started this course, I set out to prove Danny WRONG. I'm like, there's no way in heck this works, no way! But...I nearly *doubled* my proposal conversion rate."

Alex C.

SSFU Student

"I haven't finished the course yet, and already landed my first job! And the second one, actually... I am just waiting for him to officially "award" it. Lots of invaluable information in your course. Thank you !"

Delphine B.

SSFU Student

"I've just about finished all the videos in your course. Super high value, thanks for the work you've put in. :) I'm going to put real work into finding jobs on Upwork once I quit my job in July. But despite my slow beginnings, I won my first job. I've applied for only 7 jobs since I started. I was awarded this one out of a pool of 40 applicants, and I attribute this entirely to the skills and tactics you teach in the course. It's clear from my personal experience that what you teach works."

Andrew M.

SSFU Student

"I was still a bit skeptical when I signed up for Danny's course in January, but I have to say it was worth every penny and I'm continuing to wring superb value from his advice. I get more out of the videos every time I wade in. Thanks, Danny!"

Laura B.

SSFU Student

"My Upwork career can be divided into two parts: Before Danny (B.D.) and After Danny (A.D.). I submitted a couple of proposals B.D., but let's just say I had no idea what I was doing. On my FIRST proposal A.D., I got the job--within 2 hours!"

Nicole M.

SSFU Student

"Okay, your course just paid for itself. No Joke. I've been listening to it at night, trying to get ideas into my head so they'll be ready to go in the morning. I've wound up writing press releases lately, and I saw a listing for an IT company that needed them written. I thought about your lessons, and wrote them a quick proposal. Here's what the client said when he awarded the job: "I'm very excited to work with you. I reviewed the pdf you sent but was already sold from your message." Hot dang. Thanks, Danny. :)"

Shannon W.

SSFU Student

"I was just awarded a job over 17 others within an hour of the client waking up (they're in Romania). Not only was this the highest paying job I was awarded so far--at the peak of their budget, mind you--but they even invited me to apply for another one they have on the go! WINNING!!!!! Happy Heather! THANK YOU DANNY!!!!!!!!!!!!."

Heather H.

SSFU Student

"I thought I was making the right moves in my proposals, but I recently did a lot of fine tuning, and scored a long-term gig making about $1,000 a week--and just in the past week, I won two other jobs I applied to totaling about $500. Just wanted to chime in on how helpful your information really can be."

Kasey P.

SSFU Student

"I landed my first job last week! I’m super excited about it because I’m brand new to freelancing and have no formal writing experience. This was only the third job I applied for too. Thanks Danny for your amazing course – it really does work!"

Sarah A.

SSFU Student

"Got my first job! Thank you so much, Danny! I am obtaining SUCH value from your course and I haven't even watched all your videos or read all the forum posts yet! This is so great! I really feel like this is the start of my successful career!"

Vickie V.

SSFU Student

"The course is a gem – no flim flam or fat, just full on great advice that will save people MONTHS of frustration and pitfalls and give them loads of real hope and inspiration. Whether you are new to the big bad world of freelancing or experienced but adapting to a constantly changing market there is exceptional value in this course."

Penelope B.

SSFU Student

"Hey Danny, thought I'd give you a little update on what the course is doing for me! I applied to 7 jobs last weekend and was able to land my first job a few days ago: writing a couple of recipe listicles for a cute Australian desserts blog, which is right up my alley because I have a huge sweet tooth. :) This whole process has been so empowering. If not for this course, there's no way I would've thought I could pull off being a freelancer. Now, only a week later, it's already coming together."

Charlene C.

SSFU Student

"Woohoo!! Just accepted my first job since starting the course around a month ago. I've not spent a huge amount of time on searching/applying, so really happy to have my 7th proposal accepted. I started with hardly any experience and it's a weekly job preparing and sending an email newsletter.. perfect! :)"

Michael E.

SSFU Student

"After submitting five proposals late last week, I was hired for my first writing job this morning on Upwork! I just wanted to share my excitement, and now I get to build a great feedback rating and work towards an awesome hourly rate. Thanks Danny for the blueprint, and all of your hard work in putting this program together."

Ashley B.

SSFU Student

"Hey Danny! Just wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know that I just won my first Upwork client! So pumped. Now time to kill it on delivery. Thanks for a great course. This has been so exciting--already have a few more cool projects and prospects in the pipe. While I had full faith in the system, I still didn't expect it to start moving so fast!"

Elyse S.

SSFU Student

"I wanted to share this big win - I got my first gig on Upwork via the "Hidden Economy"! I've been too busy to go looking for new work. I was the only one invited to this private job, and it was to revise and bolster copy for an About page - for $200! All said and done, he loved the work that I did, and the turn around time. He gave me five stars and he was a wonderful client to work with. I was so excited, and happy! Thank you, Danny! And huge thanks to the whole community because I learn so much here. I've had a taste of the "Hidden Economy" now, and I'm hungry for more!"

Audrey K.

SSFU Student

"I had my first big win the week before last. I was hired for my first job on Upwork and I was able to use Danny's negotiating video to make sure it was on my terms. So far, the client has been a dream to work for and I'm really enjoying the process of researching and writing for them. The decision to negotiate was scary but I figured if I didn't start dictating my own terms then I never would. Knowing how to do that was the biggest win here for me. Now I have some smashing portfolio pieces, a paycheck, quotes for my profile and a client who is talking about future collaboration all of their own accord."

Sam L.

SSFU Student

"Hi Danny, just wanted to touch base and to sincerely thank you for changing the course of my work. Equipped with your advice and my newly boosted confidence, I embarked on conquering Upwork. It took only a few days to get the first job offer. Things went great from there. Got a second job that is turning into a long term and the new one that pays much more than I could ask before. Big hug and many thanks!"

Marina O.

SSFU Student

"I've implemented like 5% of your teachings to my Upwork freelancing 6 days ago - and already I've got 2 contracts. I'm hired! If your system brings so much work & money, in only 6 days...my question is, what will happen when I apply the other 95% of your teaching. Danny you've probably saved my life! Now I know how I can build my path. THANK YOU!!!!!!!"

Haris V.

SSFU Student

"Woohoo! My first client just confirmed that he is awarding me the job! It's a job to write 4 blog posts and he is paying me US$350. This guy seems like a great client. I'm SO pumped. Getting your first job is a great feeling - onwards and upwards! Thanks so much for the great content and support, guys! Very grateful! *dances*"

Satya K.

SSFU Student

"Danny, I just want you to know your course saved my business. I had heard personal stories from good copywriters (whom I knew) failing miserably at "beating the game of Upwork". This prompted me to purchase your Secrets of a Six-Figure Upworker Course. My New Upwork Results: My first two weeks on Upwork netted me 16 invites and 9 project wins. I have 5 completed projects in my first two weeks with 4 more projects to be completed the last week of December and into early January. What's sweet is I have only submitted 1 formal proposal! In fact, all 9 projects were invites with direct hires with all new clients! Plus three of my new clients have more work booked in for larger projects for next month! Your course training was concise with expert advice outlining exactly what to do and what to watch out for and why. The profile layout was extremely helpful as my invites are a good match. I am thrilled with the high quality invites to projects I am receiving. This proves to me my decision to buy and apply what I learned in your course was definitely a smart business decision and well worth the investment."

Jennie H.

SSFU Student

"I just joined the course on Wednesday after debating on whether or not I should purchase the course. I applied to an article writing gig (on Thursday) using some of the material to tweak my proposal, gave some suggestions to the client for his site on capturing emails, niching down to reach the right audience and engaging his community, and I was asked to interview today (Friday) over Skype. We're negotiating a contract and should be finished early this week. After freelancing on Upwork (formerly oDesk) for nearly 3 years and on my own offline, I've never had a response this quickly! This is the best course I've ever purchased--I will buy anything you create! I cannot wait to apply for more gigs and finally freelance full-time by the end of the year."

Domonique T.

SSFU Student

"I landed a $600 job just a few days after joining SSFU, copywriting in Norwegian for a company that wants to set up shop here in Norway. Suffice it to say, I'm digging the course. My ROI is 2x already, and it's only been a week since I joined!""

Jacob M.

SSFU Student

"I started freelancing on Upwork after picking up this course. My goal was to make an extra $1,000 a month on the side. I'm excited to say I've crushed that goal, earning $1,500/month -- while continuing to work full time as an entertainer! At $65/hr I'm able to do that while freelancing just 5-6 hours per week. You don't have to put in a ton of hours to build up a nice side income on Upwork, if you do it right. I can’t say it enough, this system works!"

Jesse G.

SSFU Student

"I'm a senior in college and have spent a ton of time over the past year trying to find an entrepreneurial way to earn money. I've taken a lot of online courses and none offered anything that was really actionable. Earlier this summer, I tried to break into the Upwork market to do copywriting and it was the definition of an epic fail. I got one job that probably evened out to a whopping $3/hr. About two weeks ago, I decided to try Upwork again and commit to learning everything I could to strategize. The second article I found on Google was from Freelance To Win and I was blown away by how brilliantly simple it was. I took another couple days to keep searching the web, but there was no other information that was nearly as useful as what I'd found on FTW. I bought the course and went through it in two days, and then started applying for about four jobs per day using FTW techniques. Within one week of starting, I have a contract for ongoing work at $30/hr for up to 25 hrs/week doing product descriptions for a rapidly expanding eCommerce business. Plus, I've been paid very well to do some extended samples, so hopefully those projects come to fruition as well! All in all, I couldn't be more impressed by and grateful for the info in FTW. Two weeks in, and it has already paid for itself and more."

Kevin C.

SSFU Student

"I've got good news to share! I won my first two Upwork jobs which also happen to be invitations, so I've also tapped into the "hidden economy." Woohoo! I'm really happy that I am taking my first steps to becoming a full-time freelancer. Thanks for this valuable course Danny!"

Aminta B.

SSFU Student

"This course has been my best investment! I specialize in writing about web design and development and a couple of weeks ago I got invited to write an article for a big online publisher at a really professional rate. After a few emails to finalize the terms of the project, the contract was sealed. Yesterday I delivered my article and today got an enthusiastic reply from my client! I got paid and they want me to contribute more articles in the forthcoming year."

Antonella P.

SSFU Student

"3 contracts in 2 days...no negotiating necessary and got hired with only a few clarifying messages back and forth. One just hired me on the spot without asking me anything. Success is on its way :)"

Linda N.

SSFU Student

"Yesterday I sent in a short proposal for an editing job. The client got back to me less than 5 minutes later. Before I knew it, she hired me and at more than double her initial budget! She loved my work and has already paid me and mentioned that she has another gig that she wants to bring me on board for. Cannot express how thrilled I am to have found this program!"

Sonia Q.

SSFU Student

"Boom! Just experienced my first taste of the "Hidden Upwork Economy" - a client offered her project to ONLY me. Just accepted it. 50% higher than my previous hourly rate as well! Danny's methods taught in the course are POWERFUL. "

Tsavo N.

SSFU Student

"I've been raking in job wins since implementing your strategies... On MONDAY. Of this week. I'm not even all the way through your course, I just looked at some of your strategies for proposals. I was at five jobs total when I got your course. I started on Upwork back in the middle of January. I've booked another five just since Monday when I implemented your material. One of the jobs is almost 50% more PER ARTICLE than my previous article writing jobs. And it's ongoing, as many articles as I can churn out in a week. Also won a job where I overbid on their budgeted price. Anyway, I expect this is just the beginning. There's so much more material that I have yet to implement. Going to come out of April with it being my most lucrative month ever. Until next month, anyway ;) Thanks again!"

Elliot R.

SSFU Student

"Danny, I've been following your course for less than 2 weeks. I just made my first $250! The videos in SSFU really helped me nab this job! From my title to the photo I chose to how I send my proposals...I followed your instructions and I got my first job! Thank you so much!"

Shay B.

SSFU Student

"I'm happy to say that as of today, I've won three jobs on UW. In about three weeks. Two were in the last 24 hours. And the latest one is a fairly large job. I couldn't have done it without this course and the great tips from Danny!"

Michelle N.

SSFU Student

"I have passed from being a jobless Venezuelan immigrant in Spain (where the job market is really FUBAR) to being a full-time freelance translator, having found jobs thanks to the Upwork+Danny combo, and being able to support my family without worrying about if there is a job available for me or not. And by the way, I had no formal training as a translator! I'm actually a Chemical Engineer with 10 years of experience running my own (Paints&Lacquers) business. I had never ever been a translator before in my whole life! Talk about starting from scratch! But thanks to your course and excellent advice, I have been able to carve myself a place in the English-Spanish translation arena. I have passed from my profile not showing at all in Upwork, to being the #6 translator that appears when you browse Upwork by "translation", and the #2 in English-to-Spanish translation!! Hidden economy kicked in about 3 months from the start. I have you to thank for that. I am also an intermittent visitor in the SSFU forum, which is the only online forum I ever visit, and the most important at that! People are great, and the advice is fantastic. Also, the profile and proposals evaluation-critiques are beyond the scale!!"

Manuel F.

SSFU Student

"Within just a couple of weeks of signing up for Danny's course, I was able to charge (and get) $600 for work I would previously have charged just $100 for! Pretty darned cool and it's all thanks to this course. :)"

Sophie C.

SSFU Student

"I've been on Upwork for about 2.5 years. However I never quite managed to crack the code on how to really raise my rates to what I consider DECENT money - until your course! It's very early days as I only bought the course last week and am still working through the materials, but I was able to submit a proposal last week for a writing job at $40ph, double what I have ever charged on Upwork before, and I got the job! It has given me a HUGE boost though that this can actually work, for me."
