Hi Atif,
Greetings!

First of all I would like to clear that the amount of 20-25/day views are very nice because I did not get even more than 10 views/day yet (since 2011), but I receive 2-3 invitations within each week even I am full satisfy because I know its more than enough as per my job category.

So I would like to throw some lights on your doubts:

1. Per day views does not affect to your invitations rate rather than what you are? I mean you need to clear your services in much well manner under profile area. If your job is related to video/audio than you should make a eye popping video clip under your profile section. I am sure client will check that video and will get your ability via this way.
2. Your JSS score should be maintain at least as 90% because client has lot of other freelancers profile who already have 90% or much JSS.
3. Include only those keywords which are related to your service. You should avoid to use emoji OR other images in your profile description area. Your profile description should be neat and clean and obviously point to point.
4. And finally, your title should be related to your services. Pleased do not mind but it is not a good place where you should include your experience numbers. It leave a bad impression to viewer.

 

Special Note: Sometime you will get lot of invitations because of 2 reasons:
1. Demand in market

2. Upwork algo

but both things are not in our hands... I mean we can get advantage from these points but cant restrict or blame them because we are not alone here.

 

I think these changes can help you to grow your business.
All the best!

Clients have to pay now if the want to send more than 3 invitations in some areas, if not all by now. I myself rarely receive invitations, and I don't rely on them at all, I'd rather chose the job I apply to myself.

Additional to the above:

 

  • Lose all the ugly, gimmicky, distracting and unprofessional icons.
  • Add much better portfolio pieces
  • Either correct the English on your profile, or adjust your self-proclaimed English level. When clients see that a freelancer is lying over-promising in one area, those clients will automatically assume that the rest of the promised skills are not as described either...
  • If you want your profile to look more professional, change your profile picture. It's more "Facebook" than "professional"

The Views graph in My Stats was recently changed to include types of views that weren't counted previously. So the higher number of views you're seeing is not a real increase, and your profile is probably not being viewed any more than it was previously.
