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

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

Your profile is private, we cannot see it.

Hey Dipti, sure, I will have a look

Hello Sameer, Do you have a chance to review my profile? Thanks in advance. 

Hey Wajahat,

 

1. update the fonts in your intro, its not very professional

2. add less bullet point items in your intro, shows you are not an expert, to many things

3. the reviews and JSS looks great, amazing work!

4. the project catelog looks amazing, great job!

5. the certifications are good, check if they have any others, see if you can add more

6. the video looks good.

 

Contact me, I may have a couple projects for you!

Thanks Sameer for your detailed review. I'll make changes accordingly. I just drop you a message. Kindly check. Thank you!

Sounds Great - I will reply this week end.

Wajahat,

 

Let me know if you have any other questions here

Hey,

I also started on Elance and did some jobs about 10 years ago. Now I'm back to give this platform another try.

How did you determine your freelance price and how did you differentiate yourself

Did you do all the work or team?

 

Hey Harris, I will reply in the next 1-2 days

Ty. Look forward to your response.

Sure, I will have a look

Honestly, if I were a client, your presentation would put me off.
It's a lot of text with a lot of emojis and it only talks about you.
Just my opinion, but maybe you should try to tell the same thing in about four paragraphs and talking to the client. What can you do for them, you must hook them in the first two lines so that they open your profile.
If you want to put everything you know and the tools, write it at the end, without emojis and without so much separation.
Honestly, it's tiring for me to see so much color and so much text and with those separations.
But..., it's just my opinion and my taste.

Good Feedback

Let me know any additional questions

Hi there can you help?

Howโ€™s can I win the bid for work on UpWork? I kinda gave up now. I know Got to be other way that I can do.

Iโ€™m looking for a beginners proposal like bookkeeping, data entry (etc).

Regards,

Alexandra


You need to do two things

 

1. make sure your profile is complete and excellent

2. submit a ton of proposals

3. get clients / do great work / build a reputation

4. do the above over and over again

 

No shortcuts...

Hey Mohammad,

 

1. Your profile looks nice. Good Job

2. I would add a video if you can, that should help a bit.

3. Check to see if Upwork has certifications you can take

4. I would add less icons in the introduction

Can someone tell me the reason why I do not get invites anymore? For the past 6 months, I haven't gotten an invite from upwork. I have tried my best, I even optimised my profile and yet. At times I only get 3 views in one week. Has upwork forsaken me

Personally, I would focus on sending proposals and would not wait for invites

That's what I did and I just got the job. ๐Ÿ˜
