Hello Oreofe, I'm new to upwork, I just joined today. I'm trying to wrap my head around a lot of things. Like why does the page keep refreshing when I click on "Submit a proposal"? Was my profile rejected? I basically need some putting through. Could you help?

Hello Oreofe, I'm trying to send you an inbox or direct message through this platform but it isn't going through. Could you kindly reach out privately? I want to discuss something with you, if you don't mind. Thanks.

Please has any Nigerian freelancer taken Danny Marguiles Secrets of a Six Figure Upworker Class?
Most of the reviews are from whites and I need a more rounded view before spending my money

Hi Oreofe,

I'm new on the platform and my freelancer application was rejected. I initially submitted my profile for review before uploading portfolio materials. After the rejection, I gathered from their feedback email that I needed to do that. Again, my profile was rejected saying they couldn't give any more reasons at this point. Could you help me understand what I'm missing and if there's a chance I can get my freelancer profile approved. Please look through my profile and portfolio and advise.

I am a freelancer from Nigeria, from Lagos to be exact. I have been finding it very hard to land my first job on upwork. I have written 6 proposals and none have been replied. Some has even asked me to fill Google forms where I will be given a proofreading job and editing job, after doing those jobs, I was still not picked. I found out I was just used.

I really have a lot of talent for writing, and I had a lot of expectations but everything is going up in smoke. I need help, I need to know how to get jobs or be referred to a job.
