Not Getting Response in Proposals

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?

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.

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
