Just like every other freelancing platform, there are tips you should be conversant with before even thinking of applying to jobs on them. Some of them include: 

1.       Optimise your profile

Add your full name, a well lightened profile picture and a stacked about section. Also, add a sample of projects you have been on to your about section on the platform. Summarily, complete your profile and add the necessary details.

2. Be Active

As much as the platform is not any competitive, if you are not active you might not be opportuned to getting any job either way. You should be active on the platform for you to be able to get updates about jobs that come your way anytime.

3. Send Proposals

After joining freelance platforms, I usually find it difficult to send proposals immediately, somehow, i wait for months and i think it’s a pretty bad. The funny thing about Skillhut is that you don’t need to have connects to be able to send proposals unlike Upwork. So, you can send as much proposals as you want. 

4. Improve your proposal

If your strategy of writing a proposal has not been working you probably need to step up your game. We have a guide on this, you can check it out. Try to state in your proposals that you understand your clients job and how good you can help them solve the problem. 

5. Portfolio   

This time around, you need to start improving that portfolios. It’s the only proof you have for your clients. Without a solid portfolio, there is no way clients would be taking your abilities seriously.  If you are a beginner, you can stock your portfolio with lots of samples that relate to your clients problems. 


The likes of Fiverr and Upwork are very competitive and most freelancers struggle to get a job from platforms like that. Even with all the experience, some still struggle. 

From my own perspective, it is better to be a big big fish in a small pond. Over time, pond would widen its pool. Hence, you would have gained your own grants on the platform.
