I have no views or comments on the catalog and profile project.

Hello,there!

If someone kindly helps me,it's been a while since there were no comments 

 or views on the profile and the project catalog.

Regardes Elda! 

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

You have to send proposals non-stop—especially on Monday and Tuesday. Clients do not come to you unless you are top-rate plus or higher.

This situation can be dependent on many things, such as:

  • It is summer, and companies may not be working that much.
  • Your profile
  • Most importantly, your PROPOSAL. I recommend watching Youtube channels on how to get jobs and create a good proposal. One of my favs is "JoshBurnsTech". It is suitable for beginners, and he has much experience on the platform.

Beginner need to learn the Terms of Service and everything on the Upwork site before they go off to learn what not to do.

Everything you said, is wrong. Sending proposals non-stop is what is ruining the platform. No one, and I mean no one, should apply non-stop. It means you are throwing proposals, likely copy-pasted, at every job you see. The clients hate getting these proposals, and it is precisely why the clients receive hundreds of totally irrelevant proposals, and leave the platform forever.

 

Monday and Tuesday...sure, fresh new jobs to apply for that you will never get.

 

Clients contact all kinds of freelancers, at all levels. Again, you are wrong.

 

Not only are you wrong, but you are spreading your false beliefs and setting the poor freelancer on a terrible path. No skilled freelancer will do what you suggest. No self-employed business person, who understand business, will do what you suggest. The only ones who will follow your ridiculous advice are the ones who lack skills, don't read or follow the rules, and are going to get scammed. They spend money applying, as you say non-stop, and you encourage them. It is wrong, and I advise every freelancer to ignore you and use the Academy for help or ask questions in the forum.

 

I get your point, but Non-Stop does not mean EVERY JOB you see. You have to use COMMON SENSE.

Good point, but if you use common sense, there are not that many jobs you should apply to.

 

A long time ago (at least 2 years ago) freelancers were getting 60 free connects a month. That meant that - unless you meant to buy extra connects, you had to really select the offers you applied to. You should tell freelancers to keep an eye on job offers, but to carefully select the ones worth applying to. Usually, these are not so frequent.

Wow,benefit from you 

Thanks you so much Ybaid!

but with connects available,can they be returned if I have wasted it with the proposals that

were not accepted!Thank you for your understanding! 

My understanding of Connects is that Connects are given back if you are being interviewed or hired.

That was the case for a while. Thanks to cheaters, Upwork had to change the rules.

what a pity ! a year ?have you bought freelance plus membership?
