Odesk is Now Upwork

Upwork-Frontpage (1)


Here at Internet Income Jamaica we teach people how to make money online using the skills they possess on various platforms. These are great ways to conveniently enter the working world and express your talents creatively online. There is an important update to one of the platforms utilized called Odesk.

Odesk is now named Upwork. A shift which signifies the merging of two online workplaces, Odesk and Elance. These two companies have similar missions to bring sellers and buyers of online work together in one place. However, they’ve chosen to use Odesk as the primary platform of the combined company.

Rebranding Odesk allows a chance for the establishment of a name to better convey the vision of the company for years to come. Elance-Odesk was considered to be too many words and therefore, Upwork was formed. Upwork was chosen because it constitutes the endless possibilities of online work and the associated community. According to Elance-Odesk, it is a name which inspires them and which they hope will inspire users also.

Your past Odesk and Elance account log-ins will work with the new Upwork platform. However, if your account had been permanently suspended on either of the original platforms then you will not be considered for reinstatement on Upwork.

Upwork offers a cleaner and friendlier user experience. It is also available for use on mobile (and Android devices). The new platform also supports hiring of workers faster, better collaboration, support for larger teams and resources to assist both clients and freelancers achieve success.

Freelancers can give a sense of when they are available to work by indicating if they can work 1. now, 2. later or, 3. not in the immediate future. Additionally there will be better organization of most suitable candidates for freelancers to different clients. In other words, the arrangement of how clients view freelancers and the suggestion of freelancers for various projects will be improved.

Collaboration among teams of workers will be facilitated via the desktop website, the mobile apps and with third party tools. Team rooms will facilitate chat like platforms, file sharing, and integrations for video. These settings will be made available to select groups of users in the initial phase of Upwork.

Larger teams will be allowed to communicate with each other better in team rooms. The platform will let colleagues exchange information and share ideas in one convenient place.

Upwork offers freelancers additional tools and resources to enhance their professional growth. Freelancers will now have a job success score, “My Stats” and a Top Rated status for more professional workers. The Hiring Hub is a spot for provision of ideas and inspiration for workers and clients to try and get their work done quicker. All these features and enhancements mean that the new platform of Upwork will be easier to use, and become an effective tool for both freelancers and job recruiters.

Sue-Tanya Swagberry McHorgh I am now a Level One seller! Slowly but
surely, thanks to you and your colleagues at IIJ, I am empowered to
continue growing, if only I had more time but I am extremely grateful that
the little and effort that I have expended have borne results. I shall
press on!


When I fist saw the IIJ commercial on TV I thought to myself, there’s no
way this was a scam because it was getting so much legitimate publicity.
I just remember going online and getting as much information as I could.
After about a month of just looking at it on the internet I said to myself,’I
gotta try this out’. I had a gotten a bonus at work so I was able to cover
the cost… called in sick those 2 days and went to the bootcamp.
When I sat there i was like okay, I’m gonna get rich… and then the class
started and I started to feel like I made a mistake because it just seemed
hard. I think it was the effort that scared me and knowing that it wasn’t
as easy as I thought it was going to be. But after 10 months of awesome
experiences and amazing opportunities I can definitely say it was worth it.
I’ve been having a blast so…
THANK YOU ALICIA AND IIJ. This is just one of the many…


Well, InternetIncomeJamaica, exactly 12 months passed, and i want
to give you guys a BIG ‘THANKS’ for assisting to increase my annual
earnings to a level that I never expected to attain by working on Fiverr.
continue to grow and inspire the nation.

Blessings, love and peace 🙂


It is amazing i have to share it is just 5 days into the month and i have
already earn what I would earn a whole month doing a 9-5 THANK YOU TO
INTERNET INCOME++++++++++++++


OMG, OMG, OMG, I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it. it actually works. i
went to the NCB Bank On The Go ATM, to use my fiverr/payoneer card
for the first time. I put in the card, put password, select the credit card
option and enter the amount i needed(Jamaica currency) and the
money came out. I thought it was going to give me some error message
or sometime. I could not believe it. THIS THING IS FOR REAL. THIS
THING IS FOR REAL. OMG. I can go ahead and pay some bills. Thanks
again IIJ team, thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks, thanks. OMG THIS IS


Hi guys,
I was went to freelancing boot camp, singed up, got expert advice and
withing a day after the training I got two buyers! Look at my reviews. I am
so happy!


It’s been a few months and It’s all still so surreal.
Every time I make a purchase or withdraw money using my Payoneer
card it’s like I’m in disbelief. I’m so happy I decided to barrow that money
and attend that boot camp in january. It has changed everything. I have
moved from wondering if I would a sale to getting to level 2 in
approximately 3 months. Words aren’t enough to express how grateful I
am for this opportunity.Thank you, thank you and thank you IIJ & friends!


I just want to say thanks to Lord and also to internet income jamaica.


Hi IIJ, it’s been 2 months since I am fiverr and due to my hard work that
led to my success in becoming a “Level 2” seller this morning. I am in the
Pro League now!!! Thanks Alicia and all the supportive team members. 🙂


thanks internet income, life changing experience


When persons ask if the iij bootcamp is worth it, I simply say “it paid for


Also, I hate a milestone! I’ve finally made $1000 in revenues since going to
a bootcamp in January 2015, but I started earning like the second week in February.
Going to this bootcamp has unlocked so many avenues and possibilities
for me! I even made into the acknowledgement of several books, and
have worked for some really cool people.
I’m only 17, but I already have so many references and friends in the
business world that I can use to propel myself further when i’m finally
finished with school.
Thank you Internet Income Jamaica!
(Everyone in this group is AMAZING! :D)


It is a good feeling to receive a review of this calibre … of course, the tip is an added bonus.

We often talk about upsells. This client contacted me for a job that would have probably cost less
than $100. I took a leap with an $11 ‘investment’ in his book and ended up with a $295! Now, I have
another project lined up and that is separate from the original job that he contacted me about.

Just for clarification, this was his second order-valued at $45 order on which he give me $18 making
a total of $63 that netted me $50.00.

Colour me happy!:)

I am so glad that I made this step in attending the Internet Income Jamaica seminar. I am doing very well at the moment and I am so happy that I ventured into the unknown because you never know where you can end up.Thank you again to you and the rest of your team and have a great day!!

The orders keep coming in, tired and want to sleep but a girl got to do the job
