Is there any way of knowing whether a client has looked at a proposal?

I've submitted quite a few proposals, but nobody has ever responded. There's no evidence that anyone has ever seen one of my proposals. For all I know they just disappear when I click on Submit. Is there a way to know whether a client has at least looked at a proposal? What am I doing wrong? I need some feedback.

Thanks,

Cliff

 The client can see all proposals, but when they receive dozens they are unlikely to actually open and read all of them. In the little pre-view window they only see your picture, bid and the first two lines of your proposal letter, so use those 2 lines to sell yourself.

You can compare the time you submitted your proposal with the "Last Viewed By Client:" field in the job post itself, but that just means they MIGHT have looked at it. The only way to know for sure is if they contact you.
