Not Getting Response in Proposals

Hi Everyone,

 

My profile strenght is 100%. I am daily submitting the proposals.

I never recieve response from any client. 

 

Can anyone look into my profile and suggest if there is any issue?

 

I don't know if there is any way to improve my rating and feedback as I am a new freelancer and not worked for any client. 

 

Please suggest me if there is some way to get rating, feedback and response from client regarding my proposals.

 

Thanks

Prateek

Is there any way new freelancer can get rating or response from proposal?

i don't know. it's been almost a month since i've joined upwork and i already have 0 connects and still have no work.

Hi Daryl,

 

It took me 8 months to get my first job as a freelancer on Odesk(nnow Upwork). The key to freelancing is to stay patient and persistent. Try to find what you are doing wrong and try to correct it. Sooner or later you will land a good job and there will be no looking back. You will find a lot of help in these discussions to improve your profile.

same problem😓

Thank you. These tips is very helpful for me.

Is activity important for gatting job?

Hi Khaled,

 

If you mean submitting proposals, yes, you will increase your likelihood of getting hired if you submit proposals to jobs that match your skills and experience. Clients can also send invites to freelancers if they find you a good fit for their project.

Prateek, some of your overview is copy/pasted from other freelancers. 

Daryl, you have no portfolio, poor test scores, and are probably offering services for too many things. Focus on one or two of those fields.

 

There's no easy answer for getting new work. It's going to take time and well-written proposals.

Thanks for suggestion Maria.

 

I have modified the overview and made it short and impactfull.

 

I even don't have an idea, if the client visits my profile or even able to see my proposal.

 

Is there any way if new freelancer can improve the rating?

As I am a newbie in upwork. Is there any way that someone can guide me in gaining rating ?

It looks like the clients are just ignoring my proposals.

Does upwork support working under a mentor ?

 

Thanks

You have a brilliant profile. Maybe you can work on your proposals but maybe it is the market. You're not the only one having noticed a decline in jobs recently.

Thanks & Regards

can you please look on mine? i had same profile in elance got job, now this is new account in upwork nothing 

Partha, it looks like you have no any taken test, for this you will not have a rising talent, furthermore no job, furthermore no top rate, furthermore no money so maybe starving. So take a test, you will change your fate for sure.

 Partha your profile is in violation of Upwork ToS. You are a company, a team, you must have an agency profile and all of your team members have to have a profile under that agency. 

"Fairness is giving all people the treatment they earn and deserve. It doesn't mean treating everyone alike-Coach John Wooden"

I would love if anyone could tell me what am I doing wrong. It has been more than a month and I didn't get ANY response on my job proposals. The point is that I am REALLY hard trying, spending many hours in writing proposals, cover letter, answering questions. For now I have one nice job, but I apply to at least one a day, and get no response further. Any help is welcome!

There are few reasons why freelancers don't get any response from clients though they are the perfect match for the job.

 

1- Your proposal. Freelancers start with Sir/Madam and after that start telling the client about itself. This is the wrong approach just start proposal with Hi, Start explaining to the client that you are looking for this service and I can provide you the best services as I can explain to you where to start and how can I add more value in this.

 

2- Don't try to run fast and submit your proposal fast without reading the entire posting take your time, read it twice and then write what client want to read about his job posting.( I take 1  or 2 hours before placing my proposal and when I place 70% chances are I won. because I won proposal with that %).

 

3- Don't try to bid on each and every job. Just take some time read the jobs and bid on only those jobs where you have a master level skills and can convince the client you are the perfect match for this job.

 

4- Don't bid low rate if you are thinking you can win projects on low rate ( excluding those clients who always try to hire freelancers on low rates and don't have any concern about the quality).

 

5- Bid the reasonable or market price if the client asks you to lower the rate than answer him truly. I am going to attach a screenshot one of my client who complained me about some quality and I answered him straightforwardly and now I am charging 500% more than the market price for a Top notch quality. Client pay for quality.

6- Don't try to become too polite be natural with the client and also in the proposal.

 

Good Luck!

Abida, it looks like your tests actually well are but are also too little concerned on professional writing, take a grammar test at least, there is lots of tests for writers, did not you see it?  

Now I have modified bidding 43 of last 15 days no response please help

Could you please review my profile and suggest improvement for getting work??

There isn't really much to review.... You have hardly any overview, no portfolio,  no employment history...

 

There is really nothing there that would make you stand out between all the other applicants for every job.

Can you take a look at my profile also? I am not getting responses from anything but scams that want me to chat on google hangout. 😞

HI,

 

Can you please review my profile and pls help me why I am not getting response from client??

 

Thanks

I liked this answer madam.

I’m here 2 days, I worked on my profile for a week before posting it public . I hope I have been following right the guidelines given by senior members. 

Would be very constructive for me if you gave a feedback to my profile too. 

Cheers in advance
