How to be top rated on Upwork

To be top rated on Upwork feels great. But do you know how long and what it takes to become one? Well, relax! I’m here to help you out. If you are struggling to get on the top of other freelancers across the world, I have a secret to share with you.

I recently became one of the freelancers top rated on Upwork, and I can’t express how I feel. You can’t imagine getting what you have been yearning to have for several months. If you can envision that feeling, then that is what I feel right now. I always admired the top-rated profiles and wondered when Will have that badge on my profile as well. At last, I made it, and I am here to share my experience with you.

Be patient

To be top rated on Upwork, you must exercise patience. They say patience pays. Yes, I can attest to that. To be victorious in any profession, you must have patience otherwise you might die a failure. When I say patience, I mean it. You can’t work with two clients and quit because your job success didn’t shoot up or you didn’t get top rated. Successful freelancers exercise patience even with the bad customers. I agree some clients are nothing but a headache. But will you handle them unprofessional and get a negative review on something you could have solved amicably? Don’t just quit because of one negative review.

There are times when you might not get hired. You submit proposals, and all you see is interviewing six, and the client ends up not hiring anyone. Here is happened to me; I submitted several proposals, and in all of them, the clients didn’t hire. But this did not keep me off the platform.

I submitted several proposals, and in all of them, the clients didn’t hire me. But this did not keep me off the platform. And on another scenario, I submitted like five proposals, and all I saw was the client is till interviewing two or four.

Does it this discourage you from submitting proposals? This means you up your game.

It isn’t an overnight journey

To be to be rated on Upwork doesn’t mean waking up one morning and saying, “oh yes I want the badge.” It takes some time. While it took me one year and two months to get the badge for the top rated freelancer, it may take you less or more months. Many freelancers spend several years to get top-rated while others spend less than a year. What is the secret? It all depends on you and not the site.

Meet Upwork considerations

  • Upwork considers client satisfaction is one of the aspects of rating a freelancer. So be successful on Upwork you have to provide quality work to your customers. Do the job as if it was yours. A satisfied client means more customers are coming to you and more earnings. Satisfaction is not only for getting on top of other Upwork freelancers, but it also means a thriving freelance business. When clients leave positive reviews on your site, you edge closer to your badge.
  • Freelance earnings: Your Upwork earnings are another aspect of getting the top rated badge. I didn’t know about earnings until I got top-rated. Upwork states that you must have earned at least $1000 to be ranked as a top freelancer. Does this mean working day and night? Know it doesn’t. If you get high paying clients, you might achieve this in just a few months.
  • Profile completeness: This is another headache for upcoming freelancers. They find it hard to have a 100% complete profile. However, those who registered when it was Elance, are okay if the profile is 90% complete.
  • Job success score: If you didn’t know, your job success score determines your rating. In this case, Upwork requires you to have a job success score equal to or higher than 90%. Or you should maintain a rising talent status for 13 weeks or more.

Bottom line

Getting top rated on Upwork is not a nightmare as we often regard it but rather an easy task if you take the above points into consideration. Once you are top rated, you get more benefits that boost your freelance business.
