Hi. I'm html/css developer 9+ years and ux/ui designer 3+ years. So as you understand i have 10 years exp. in developing website. I knew about upwork for a very long time. But now I need some additional side job. I didnt get how Connnects and bids work. But I spent about 200-250 connects. It's about 30-40$. I have 0 responses even nobody start discuss about my offer. Actually on Upwork clients offers cost is very cheap for me. But I anyway trying to do tasks for review and respect 😃 But still no responses. What should i do and how much more money I need to spend ?
It's not about spending money, but about having a good profile, sending quality proposals and let's face it, a litte bit of luck.
You could send thousands of proposals, but if any of them are apealing to the client, they won't even notice you. You're trying to make a sale, so your proposal should convince the client to talk to you.
Here's an article about that:
