Beginner freelance Graphic Designer

I am begining to work as a freelance and have been bidding on jobs with no response, I have updated my profile and been adding my work to my portfolio but still nothing. If the Upwork Community could help me with some tips or plans I would really appreciate it!

Hi Anita, 

Welcome to Upwork and the Upwork Community! I think your profile is good. Many top freelancers recommend making sure that the profile overview speaks more about how a freelancer will solve the client's project/problem instead of talking about yourself. Try to answer "how will you solve my problem?" and write that as your overview. You may also want to target a specific market - are you more inclined to provide graphic design solutions in print or social media? This helps narrow down your clients and create a better targeted profile.
