I dont know is it me or everybody struggling to find new work here in upwork now a days. I have completed 761 jobs here in upwork, but now a days even after submitting proposals I am not getting any reponses, even when I have the exact things/designs similar to what clients want in my porftolio. I only bid on those jobs which I think perfect for me and clients will able to check related work in my portfolio. My prices are also very competitive, they are not very high or very low. I request senior members and moderators to please have a look at my profile or suggest me if I am doing anything horribly wrong that I stopped getting responses from clients all of sudden.
How do you know whether your current bid prices are high, low or about equal to what your competitors are charging?
This information was easy to see for each project I bid on at Elance, but I haven't been able to locate this information for my own niche here on Upwork.
I had a weird end of year period where I felt like I was pulling teeth to get work. Now some long-term clients are back with plenty of work. Meanwhile I am getting approached again by new clients. I expected the beginning of the year to be slower, not busier. I find freelancing is like this...partly under my control, partly subject to the inscrutable will of the Freelance Gods.
