Great comments here.

How do you guys promote yourself, those that work alone without agency of some kind ? Word of mouth or web site or something else ?




I'm only 1 year in but I find most of my contacts on UpWork (I'm lucky being in the niche field and not having too much competition there).

I'm currently trying out to see if a newsletter can work and I managed to get one project through it so far.


Can you give a vague hint as to your niche to give us an idea of the kind of services you render? iOS? HFT? Mobile games? Marketing? US taxes? GDPR compliance?

Thanks!


I do Robotics!

On average I find approximately 2 jobs worth applying a month. Robotics is not really that popular on Upwork so there are not many jobs available but also there is little competitions.
