I am scared my country will limit my chances of getting jobs

You should be encouraged by the fact that you are not the only one for sure. I met a guy about a year ago here on the forum, saying roughly the same you are saying now. He was offering writing gigs and I needed some work done anyway. So I thought why not, I’ll give it a go.

I ordered a gig from him, it was his first order on Fiverr. Best article I had written for me in a long long time! It was not a fluke, I ordered more gigs, he kept delivering amazing work.

Today, he is a succesful seller here on Fiverr, getting orders from people from all countries in the world. And amazing reviews too.

If you deliver good work, and communicate well, I would say you have a good a chance as anyone else to make it big as a freelancer, no matter where you come from.

Thanks @esther87 , I am encouraged. I believe I will be a big freelancer very soon.

At the moment, your writing skills are more likely to deter buyers.

Here’s your profile description:

In four lines of text, I’ve counted six errors – all relating to capitalisation and punctuation. No seller, regardless of where they’re from, will get away with writing like this for very long, not when they promise to create “premium quality” content.

Also, if you believe people are going to be skeptical of your offerings, why give them fuel for the fire? You claim to always be available. That just isn’t possible.

The capitalization was meant for emphasis, I will make corrections.

Thanks.

Thanks.

You’re welcome. It’s best to avoid capitalising the first letters of words you want to emphasise. English writers haven’t used this technique for over 200 years now.

You can emphasise elements of a sentence by using bold formatting, cleft constructions or end-weight. You can also capitalise the whole of a word, phrase or clause, but this technique has its critics.

Be careful with these run-on sentences. Unfortunately, all grammarians and English experts would consider the sentence above incorrect. A period should have been used instead of a comma.

I’m not sure whether you’re aware of the notion of a clause. Two independent clauses may be joined with semicolons only.

Stop the errant capitalisation and run-on sentences, and you’ll do well on Fiverr. 😉

Many people actually look to hire writers from Africa or The Caribbean, because these countries have a long English-speaking history and a fairly low cost of living.

Thanks for the help. I will improve.
