I have been a member since December 2015. Since then I am Submitting proposals regularly but not getting any response. I have a vast experience in Data Entry, Microsoft office. For getting job I have offered low rates and discounts but no one even give me a knock.
Even in my cover letter I do not copy paste. I have been writing specifically to the clients with their specific needs. Even offered a sample work If they give me a chance to interview. But nobody gave me a knock to interview invitition. Have been wondering do the clients really read my cover letter???
Is there anything wrong in my profile??? I have been very specific in my profile description. Please give me a sollution what should I do. How I can attract clients? Need expert suggestion.
I'm not Expert, but i can point out some areas of improvement on your profile.
You haven't taken enough test, not even participated in UpWork Readiness Test yet. How do a potential client know you're well aware of UpWork's terms and conditions ?
And please hide ( make private ) on those test you didn't scored good on
Please Re-Write your profile overview describing what you can offer to a potential client, not just your educational background ( not at least in first line of your profile overview ).
You can research and review some successful freelancer's profile to get an overall idea.
Hope this helps.

Thanx for your helpful reply. I will try to work in those respective area.
Also, don't forget to change your availability on UpWork, whether you're willing to work part-time ( less than 30 hours per week ) or full-time ( more than than 30 hours ).
But definitely not as client needs ( this option is suitable only for established and busy freelancers who gets a lots of invitation from clients ).
Not being rude, but your profile comes across as a little desperate. I would suggest:
Expanding your introduction
Raising your rate
Expanding on the skills you have
Taking lots of relevant tests
Changing the profile so it comes across as though it would benefit them to hire you, rather than you asking them to do you a favour by hiring you.
Also, if you've got an MA and a job in a bank then you have better skills to offer than data entry - which is insanely oversubscribed anyway.

I am also facing same problem. I am expert Wordpress developer.
You will need to update your profile to make sure it meets the Upwork requirements. Please, change your profile name to your real legal name and not the name of your company. On Upwork a freelancer profile needs to reflect truthful information about that individual freelancer while an agency profile can have the information about a company or a team.
I am too having the same problem.
I've done lot of jobs and working own my way. But for a while I didn't get any response from the client's even I do bid regularly. I also have a "Top Rated" status. Could you please look on my profile and get some idea's, what is going wrong ?
Thanks for your time.
I am Not getting any response from CLIENTS. I am expert Wordpress developer.
I have done 10,576 hours worked and completed 822 jobs. My award ratio in Elance was 15% or above. But in Upwork I am not getting reply from clients for my proposals.
Can anyone suggest me what is wrong here?
