Briefly describe why you are the right person to handle that project. *Offer example projects you have already completed in relevance to the nature of the job posted to win the confidence of the buyer. You may also provide a sample work, if you are a newbie at that website. *Offer a part of work provided done and present it before the buyer for evaluation. If he likes your way of doing, then your bid will win easily. *Don’t offer so low bids to attract the buyer. They are not only interested in lowering the budget but also will look forward to get the project completed effectively. Lowering the bid to the bottom will also reduce your importance. *Keep visiting the website frequently and use the allowed project to bid everyday to gain more exposure. *Don’t accept projects and then leave it incomplete.
