No more offers from clients since I became top rated

Hey all !
Since I became top rated almost 2 months  ago I almost haven't got any offers from clients.
I don't know what's happening! Even without the top rated mention, I was always getting offers...

My profile is 100% complete and I always upload my work to showcase my skills.
Upwork isn't supposed to send proposals to their top rated members ???
Does anybody know what is going on ?
Thank you !

Hello Marianne,

 

Thank you for your message. I am sorry to hear that you are receiving fewer offers. Our search algorithm takes a variety of factors into account. We encourage freelancers to have complete profiles and update with their latest work and relevant skills.

 

Thank you.

Pradeep.



Upwork

Hi Pradeep!

Thank you!

My profile is 100% complete and I always upload my work.

 

Hi!

I have been top rated for almost 2 months now but, I am getting very few offers. I believed I read somewhere that when you are top rated, Upwork sends you more offers...I am having returning clients or I apply by myself. How come? When is Upwork stepping in to help me?

Thank you! 

People spend money in summer on vacantions not freelancers 😆

It would be best to not rely on Upwork to send you good leads/potential clients to submit proposals to. If you do, you'll succumb to its ebbs and flows.

 

It's best to be proactive and play the odds game: use your connects and set a minimum number of proposals to submit every day.

I do this every day, and while there can be a delay in client responses. If you choose the right jobs, so examine the client account, their experience, pay rate, feedback, and job description, you can better target jobs that fit you. And that means you'll certainly get responses, but it is something you have to keep doing and be patient with.

Upwork doesn't send you offers. Clients send you offers. Or not. Whether clients send you offers (or not) depends largely on how good your profile is. But to actually even get clients to look at your profile, they have to find it first, and when they find it, they have to open it.

I feel that your profile isn't really helping to achieve that.

They're not.

Just peruse all the other threads where freelancers are complaining how useless the job postings are they are sent by the talent specialists or whatever they are called. But in the meantime, you could greatly enhance your profile. The client sees the first 2 lines when he receives your proposal. What does he see in your case? Mainly open space and a meaningless title. Nothing that tells a potential client what you can do for him.  It might also be that the talent specialists look up profiles by title (but I don't know that for sure), so they would not select you anyway.
