Decrease in number of invites and responses to job posts

Hi,

 

We have been an agency focused on IoT solutions development since we joined Upwork in 2015. With 121 projects later, we used to get at least one invite per day and the response rate to our job applications were around 60 to 70%. All this suddenly changed in April 2021. We are not getting as many invites - the ones we get are mostly small and irrelevant, we are not getting any response to our bids. The only area where we are getting responses is where the client has a very low budget and where our LoRa-Chirpstack skill matches. Basically we got just one relevant response.

From 60 % to nearly 0 is hitting us hard. Just checking if anyone else is facing this issue.

 

Being a company with 30 people working, this sudden change is affecting us badly. We are an end to end IoT solutions development company and anyone chacking our profile can see the number of projects we have done successfully in the area. Now we are not getting any response to bids in the very same area, where clients used to be impressed with the number of projects we had done in IoT.

 

Waiting to hear if anyone else is facing this issue.

 

Thanks,

 

Sheeba
