It depends on your skills but starting fresh you have to make sure your profile is attractive and appealing to client. When I started i kept it on 6-7$/hour. As I progressed I increased it to 8$/hour>

No, I disagree; that's way too cheap. I think that $15 is too cheap as well; even when I was new here, I was charging $30/hour, so Kazi might even want to experiment with raising his rates instead of lowering them. But I don't think that his rates are why he's not being hired; good clients aren't looking for the cheapest freelancers, and why would you want to work for bad clients?

 

Kazi, you've got a good profile and portfolio, but your work (at least the first few pieces) looks like generic mock-ups, no doubt from your studies? It's not a huge problem, but I see that you've also been working as a graphic designer, so do you have some actual client work that you could put up front in your portfolio, or at least one thing that you could use as your cover image? That might help. Also, you could ask 2-3 of your previous clients to give you testimonials about your work (or even ask one of your instructors), then put these comments into your profile overview until you've got feedback from Upwork clients.
