I have a question

Hi Upwork

I have a question. When I first started Upwork, I contacted 3 customers within a few weeks and did their jobs successfully. This month, I've used almost all the connections, I've only been able to contact a customer, I never use a template cover letter. Seems like any of proposal not going to clients. Is there a problem with my profile?

I am waiting for your respond, have a nice day.
Best Regards

Murat Yay

Hi Murat,

 

As I can see that Upwork is highliting US candidates to clients and other profiles are automatically hidden in proposals options and not goign to clients.

As a client, that is not happening to me. Upwork IS hiding some proposals in a folder called "other" and calling them out as not relevant, but I am seeing proposals from all over the world in the main section.

Interesting. I wonder if not having a "specialized profile" in certain categories is contributing to being weeded out?

Hello Christina

I have a specialization profile and I am sending proposals for the right jobs. Before I started working with Upwork, I read every information about Upwork one by one.
