Hi Cynthia N,

First of all, your price is so high for a newbie. Even experienced people's rate is not so high. 

The profile is also not complete.


Great Feedback

Thanks!

Hey Dinara, I will have a look

Sure

please help me 

Hey Anas,

 

I had a look at your profile and I feel that you need to spend some time filling out the rest of the sections. Please do that and when ready, I would be happy to have a look and give suggestions. I also think you should lower your rate initially.

thanks

My Pleasure. Thank You!

Hi Sam , kindly look into my profile for and suggest what is needed.

Hey Akeem,

 

1. add some portfolio items

2. add a video if you can, make sure its a horizontal video

3. try to get some testimonials from outside clients

4. expand on your intro, talk more about how you can help clients

5. look in to some of the certifications that apply to you and take them

6. you need to go and submit proposals and try to get some smaller jobs

Ahhh... Buried Love,  Elance I miss you buddy so much. A nice clean platform.

I worked a TON on Elance : )

Please take a look at my profile too, and let me know what to improve, thanks in advanced sam!

Hey Bagus,

 

In general, it looks good, some thiings to look at

 

1. add a video if you can. every little bit helps (i also need to do this)
2. look in to adding some certifications (as available)

 

The key is to basically continue to submit proposals.

Hello Samer,

I will appreciate if you will take a look at my profile too, it's kinda frustrating when one isn't finding a job on here.

Hi Sam. Your experience is impressive! It is commendable that you decided to share your knowledge. ๐Ÿ‘

 

Could you look at my profile and suggest what can be improved?

I don't get other job except 1,,,,.    Please give suggestion

Hey Kinza, sure, I will have a look and get back to you here in the next 1-2 days.

Hi Elance,

I am reaching out to you in regards to get help regarding this.

Reagards,

Sounds Good - I will connect with you in a day or so.

Let me know what you need help with.

Hey Kinza,

 

I like your profile. I do think you can improve on a few things.

 

1. add a video if you can.

2. i feel you have way to many services you offer in your descriptions, cut back on those.

3. add more portfolio items

4. add more portfolio items if you can.

5. work to get the reviews and build a history

6. get clients you have worked with in the past to leave you a testimonials

Can you pls contact with me on other app?

 

If you don't mind pls give me your contact where I do personal msg

Feel free to ask any questions here.

It would be best to keep all questions here so others can learn. What can I help you with?

What can we do about these people that want free work ? You do it right, then they want a refund.

The KEY here is to be super specific from the start.

Hello Sam.

Your experience is great! It is commendable that you decided to share your knowledge. :excellent:

 

Can you take a look at my profile and suggest what could be improved?

Have you had a hard time getting a job on the platform?

can you help me

 

Thanks.....

Hey Nighat,

 

I am one of the lucky ones that has been here for a long time (back from the elance days)

 

I had a look at your profile and I would recommend you edit and go through each section and review it in detail. Let me know when you do that and I will review the changes. Add testimonials, add a protfolio if it makes sense and other sections.

Have a nice day i will like to join you ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hey Mykola,

 

I hope all is well, here are some quick recommendations: 

 

  • add more items to your portfolio
  • add more experiences if you have them
  • add a video if you can (i know, i know, i don't have one but I should!)
  • any certifications you can add to your profile will give you more credibility
  • try to include keywords which are relevant to your industry in a non spammy way.
  • Most importantly, continue to keep clients happy and get great reviews > JSS > Score > Badges

Have a look at mines, may be it will help and give you some ideas:

I'm curious. What exactly do you think systems administrators should use as portfolio items?
