I am getting invites but unable to land on a job, I don't have much samples to show.

Hello,
I have been working on Upwork for the last two months, my issue is that i get many invites for the job but unable to land one because I don't have too many sample work to show my credibility. Also i have spent many connects applying for the job related to my skill but never heard back from any of that.
Kindly review my profile and enlighten me what am i missing.

Hello, I think you should remove the following

"HELLO!! WELCOME TO MY PROFILE,"

Its a bit distracting and removes attention from the things that matter. You could add the list of things you do closer to the top of your portfolio: Site plan, Working floor plans with area calculation, Roof plan Elevations, etc. 

You could create more samples to display on your portfolio.

Thank you Richard for telling me where i am doing the mistake.

Richard is right. The client sees only the first sentences in the list of proposals so you don't want to use that space for pure meta-text like you're basically telling that this is your profile. Everyone knows it is your profile. Get to the point instead. ๐Ÿ˜‰

But in general, I think your assumption is incorrect. You don't need MORE samples. It's he quality of your profile in general.

Redo it.

Offer something more specific.

Make sure the first images in the portfolio section are your best images. The pic about the Irish house looks like from the 90's but the interior shots once I open the portfolio item look much better! Show the best ones first, otherwise people don't click because they only see the first bad one.

Also, you might want to raise your rates. Being a 3-dollar-per-hour guy only attracts window shoppers and those who want everything but have no money to pay for anything.

Basically, what I'm saying is your profile as it is will never bring very good clients. Just trouble (as you've probably realized already).

Good luck, Mohammad!

Thank you Mikko R,
Your feedback is really very helpful, i was in need of a detailed review of my profile and your recommendations are 100% valid.

Why don't you create more samples?
