Hi Kunal,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. I understand you are not getting responses. I checked your account and it looks like you've only submitted three proposals in the last seven days. I would highly suggest that you submit more proposals to increase your chance of getting a response from a client. Note that your JSS at the moment may not stand out to clients so the key to getting a new client is to keep trying, curating your proposals the best way you can, and improving your profile.

 

You may want to create Project Catalogs based on the skills and services you offer. This is a new method for our freelancers to have clients come to them, giving freelancers the opportunity to create ‘projects’ that are pre-scoped with price, deliverables, and timeline. Clients can then search for these projects via a series of category pages (specific skills) and purchase them in just a few clicks.
 
You may also want to consider upskilling and learning new skills to increase your marketability. Competition is getting tough not only in Upwork but also on other platforms, especially since most people nowadays opt to work remotely. One possible reason might be also the fewer demands for jobs that fall under your selected skill set. You can also revisit the skills you have selected in your profile, only if applicable.

 

We also highly encourage you to continue to work to become a Top-Rated or Top Rated Plus Freelancer once you get enough recent work history. Having these badges in your profile will increase your invite and hire rate.

Hello Annie,


I received the badge Top Rated a while ago. It did not impact to invites, I still do not get them. Actually do not receive any invitations for more than one year I guess. Maybe it might increase when it's my turn to show up in the rotation. Maybe I have to improve my profile.
Thank you for any advice.

Hi Anastasiia,

 

I understand it did not work for you. It will potentially increase a freelancer's invites however, please know that we are not privy to why and how clients choose whom they send invites to, so it is still highly recommended to submit proposals, update your profiles, and utilize Project Catalog for better chances of landing a project.

 

I hope this helps!
