I have joined Upwork 1.5 months back and sent about 61 proposals, initially i got few replies but barely got any work. And now i am not getting a single reply.
Is there something wrong in my profile?
Have I put up too much work in my portfolio?
Am I chargning too much?
I have read a lot about writing a proposal on Upwork and have followed it too. Since i am a designer my proposal are never without my work. I always attached different type of art style or different level of detailing if the client hasn't mentioned anything. I have created specialised profiles, pre-packaged projects. I am searching everday to improve my chances on Upwork. But nothings happening.
No, you are not charging too much. If anything, you are charging not enough.
But this is a tough time for everyone, we are in the middle of a global pandemic and hundreds of thousands of people are trying to get work online. Grit your teeth and keep bidding, but be choosy.
