Change your photo for one of you, nothing else is allowed. And the one you have with those images of weapons and war, also, for me, is in rather bad taste.
Your profile is nothing, just a title that doesn't say anything and a couple of sentences, half of which are your email, which is not allowed.
It seems you have not read the TOS, correct?
Well, I'll leave you a couple of posts so you can learn how this works and what you can or can't do.

Hey!

Could you please find sometime and share your insights for my Upwork profile!

This will help me to upscale.

Thanks in advance!

I think you should redo the presentation:
- I would remove the emojis, or at least some. It's a matter of taste, but they bother me.
- Take advantage of the first two lines to hook the client (it is the only thing they see without opening your profile).
- Tell the client a little about what you can do for them.
- If you have two skills, graphic design and video editing, you should create specialized profiles. The presentation must be specific to each one of them. Do not copy the same one in both.
- You can look at, don't copy, some freelancer profiles to see how they present themselves.

I leave you this post so you can have more help. Read everything, links included:

Maria,

 

I found it helpful to be able to report suspicious or harmful content but do you know, does upwork have a feature like that? I know for instagram they have an option to report which makes it super easy. Good to know fellow community members are looking out for the others.

On Upwork you can flag:
- Jobs. "Flag as inappropriate" is below "Apply Now." A list of reasons appears, plus a box where you can write.
- Profiles. "Flag as inappropriate" appears by clicking on the three dots "..." to the right of the top. The same as before.
- Messages. When you hover over the message, three dots appear to the right. There are several options, including "Report message".
- Forum. On the right, by clicking on the three dots, a list where you choose "Notify Moderator"
I don't know if you mean this.

 

Regarding your profile:
- I would remove the first paragraph. You talk about yourself, you must talk to the client. I would use the second paragraph as a beginning, focusing on the client. Then I would put the first paragraph, corrected. You don't have to introduce yourself or say what you do. Customers can see it.
- Portfolio. You dont have anything. If you have experience, you should create one so the client can see if you fit what they are looking for. A designer should always have a portfolio.

Hey Maria,

Hope you are doing well. I am new to the upwork and selling services of the online store designing and theme customization. Can you help me and please look at my profile is it ok?

I can't tell you much about your profile, I have no idea about that field. In principle the presentation seems good to me.
What I see is that all three jobs are at the same price and this one is low. Were they all similar and only took you an hour of work?
I tell you this because clients will see that, if not all of them involve the same work, your price is low for everything.
Maybe you did it to get good reviews, but very low prices attract customers who pay little and, worse, they usually end up asking for a lot in return.

Yeah, I kept my pricing low at the start because I am new here and my only purpose is to give clients 100% accurate work within less time and less rate. I think it's fine for now as when I grow I will increase my rates and duration for projects as well.

You'll see what's best, but many low-priced jobs will make customers expect that price.
One thing is the price per hour and another is work by milestones.

Thanks, Maria!

I will act upon your advice.
If you know of any Dropshipping store building & product researching and theme customization work let me know.

Good luck.
And I don't think I'll see jobs of that type :), my field of work is different.

I Also New Here!

I am too but don't worry "we shall overcome someday" , I am a Data Entry Operator allso

Welcome Wiclef we looking u forward to be in our community group 

Amina, I'm sorry to tell you that if you don't have a specific skill that is salable on Upwork, you are not going to achieve anything, other than spending money on connects to present proposals.
With the profile you have right now, the easiest thing is for you to fall prey to some scammer "client."
I'm going to leave you a couple of threads that can help you understand how this works and create a profile, if you really have something you can sell. But, I don't want to give you wings when I think you're not going to get much here.

Your profile is set to private, but two things: your photo must be of you and your name must be real.

Hello, everyone! I am a professional Animator, Character Designer, and Illustrator. I joined to try and get a sense of what other freelance artists and creatives are up to on the site, get help bolstering my presence, and get my name out there. Feel free to refer any clients to me looking for my skill set. I have gotten some jobs, but it has been slow-going since last summer.

Hello everyone!

I am an architect with more than 10 years of experience and I have experience in architectural and interior design. But most of all what I like to do is 3D modeling and rendering.
Recently I have pursued my career as a freelancer since for almost 8 years I was working only in a small office where I had the opportunity to develop myself in different areas.

During all these years, I have developed skills in different design programs, and I would like to continue learning.

I haven't been on this platform for long, but I haven't got my first job yet, I recently made changes in my profile to make it more attractive to clients. I would appreciate it if you could give me some other tips to keep improving and get new experiences in Upwork.
Thanks in advance
