I am a computer science graduate and have a creative streak, so I went to Freelancer and hired myself as a developer and article writer.
Problem is, I have bid for a lot of projects, but no one has contacted me who wants to pay a decent amount - only the bargain hunters who don't give a bit about quality and hire for $1 an article. How do I convince them that I am not interested in garbage work, and the quality is pretty decent if one gives me a try? I am currently charging $10 per 500 words.
P.S. my profile there has this exact same name. If anyone is interested in finding me there, please do.
