$2M Earned on Upwork. I would love to HELP!

Hey Everyone,
 
I posted this in the newbie group. I can answer newbie questions there,
 
I can help answer more advanced questions here, I would love to help my fellow freelancers : )

 

I have been on upwork for 12 years now (previously elance),

 

I have been on the forums for a couple years but never really participated much,

 

I figured, what better way than to help others, ask away, some stats below (you can also click to see my profile)

 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Earned $2 Million+ on Upwork.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Completed 400+ jobs on freelance platforms.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Attained 200+ 5-star reviews.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Worked 40,000+ hours on freelance platforms
๐Ÿ‘‰ Earned a 100% Feedback Rating
๐Ÿ‘‰ Worked with 1,000+ Clients

 

Thank You - Sam

What if you paid the 240 and still no jobs? Do we get a refund?

No, that is part of the platform, you bid, you win, than great, if not, you keep trying.

Its being caused by the enemy in your home. Someone close, maybe an ex sleeps and astral projects to cause problems for us. I unknowingly married a man who sleeps and astral projects with his friends to cause a world of problems for me. God can help. He gave me anointings when I surrendered, one of which is to declare life over everything dead. Below is a photo of what I said I married.

Work hard, do your best...

I hope that was helpful, you CAN make it work, you need to stick to it, get clients, make them happy, build a reputation and work up the chain where the bigger clients trust you more and more. 

It is helpful... thank you for your time ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi,

Can you provide feedback on my profile. Please guide how can I get referrals from other freelancers?

Hey Azeem, I will have a look

Hey Azeem,

 

I had a quick look and here are the things that I see: 

 

1. Add a video if you can, it gives the profile a personal touch (i need to do this also)

2. I feel like your introduction and description is to long, make it short and simple, keep it clean.

3. I feel like you choose to many programming languages, why not just focus on a couple of them?

4. For some reason, your portfolio images are not loading, can you check that out?

5. Great job on adding the Microsoft certifications, do you have any additional ones that you can link up?

6. I see you have no reviews but you can get testimonials by inviting others you have worked with.

Feel free to reach out here if you have any additional questions

Let me know if you have any additional questions. thx

Some reminders for everyone: 

 

1. Make sure you read all the rules

2. Read the forums / watch YouTube videos, read all you can and learn

3. Make sure your profile is strong and complete

4. Do all you can to get some smaller jobs, do great work and hopefully you get some good reviews in return

5. Submit Proposals, lots of them... (I am personally not a fan of boosting)

6. Do Great work, continue to learn and communication is always KEY with clients

I'm a newbie I need help on how to earn on upwork

 

There are many things to correct in your profile.
The photo, let it be of your face, let it look good.
The title, look for one that defines your skills. It's just that you're not very specific.
The presentation. Is it an AI text? It seems like it. Bad, especially because you're supposed to be a writer. It also doesn't let you know your real level of English.
You are losing the first two lines, which are the only things the client sees without opening your profile. You don't have to say hello or say your name or what you do. Customers can already see that. You must hook them with those two lines.
I leave you two threads for you to read, everything, links included:

Great and Good Luck!

Let me know if i can help you in any way.

Very detailed reply. Nice 

Hey Faraz,

 

I had a quick look and here are some suggestions: 

 

1. Add a video if you can, not many do it so it will help.

2. The title you are using is way to long, I would make something shorter

3. Something like "IT Help Desk Expert"

4. Great Job on the Reviews and the JSS. They look great. Keep it up.

5. Certifications also look great!

6. In general your profile looks awesome, you just need to submit proposals and keep clients happy.

Hey Adama, I will have a look at your profile.

That's very generous of you supporting Freelancers.

 

So I'm making my transition to Upwork. I really believe their is opportunity. I have been putting together my portfolio and requesting testimonials from clients, to establish that trust for other clients to work with me.

 

I would appreciate it if you take a look at my profile, as you see I have added some projects so clients can take a look at the work I deliver.

 

Thanks again.

 

 

No worries. I will have a look

Sure, you can send me the link.

Hey Rawad,

 

I had a quick look, some quick observations: 

 

1. You can always add a video if you would like.

2. For the title, I would use something different than wellness based because most people wont search that

3. The portfolio looks good, as a designer, the more the better

4. Because you lack reviews, the more testimonials you get, the better

5. For certifications, Upwork does allow you to add 2 there, but they also have some official ones you can take / add

6. Submit proposals and get small clients at the start, do a good job, get reviews and keep doing that.

I need my account restored or my information transferred to a new account. I really woukd prefer the new account. Please tell me how? This acvount is being manipulated by her and its not helping me. Thank you.

Hi, Samer! Thank you for reviving this post. 

I recently tried to optimize my profile in a bid to get more invites and views, but it hasn't converted so far. Would you please take a look at it and point out areas that might need improvement and stuff like that?

 

Thank you so much 

Sure, I will check it out here in the next couple days.

Hi, Samer! Dropping a reminder for the profile review. 

 

Thank you so much
