Not receving new projects and invitations

I'm top rated plus with 99% JSS. I have wasted 1000's of dollars in buying the connects but my leads are not getting convert and also suddenly i got getting invitations in my id . What I should do now.  Anyone check my profile.


Hi Dishant,


I'm sorry to hear that you have not been getting any project opportunities from your certain niche and I understand how important it is to receive invites.
We are able to see here that you have a pretty impressive profile and your profile is definitely visible to clients and the marketplace.
I understand it can be a bit challenging getting noticed and hired by Clients, especially with such a large pool of talented Freelancers to compete with. However, with proper marketing, consistency, and diligence we are confident that Upwork can be an invaluable resource for you.
Upon checking your account, I see that your account profile is set to "Public" where it is visible to the entire Internet including clients, freelancers, and visitors and to search engines such as Google and Bing.  There is no restriction that prevents clients from seeing your profile or hiring you.


I can see that there is no lack of interest in your profile since you've had 10 profile views in the last seven days. This means you are out there and very much visible to clients. There is no lack of interest, it is just that clients may have found someone more suitable to their goal right away and did not search further for other freelancers. It can also be another freelancer's profile that might have caught their attention and decided to stick with that freelancer. 


We need to consider that when clients look for talents, they look for someone who would fit their budget, skill requirements, work history, etc. 


I would encourage you to keep submitting proposals to job openings where you know you can do your best and impress your clients. In your cover letter, show the client you’re the right person to hire; It’s not enough to know you can do the job. The client needs to see why and how you’re not only a good fit, but the best fit. Once you get invited for an interview, be sure to show your experience, demonstrate your skills, and make the choice easy for them. Having confidence in yourself and what you can do for the client will help you stand out from other freelancers.
I also recommend checking the following before applying for a job post:

  • Carefully review the job post to make sure it matches your skills and availability.
  • Check to see if the client has hired anyone yet — sometimes clients don’t close a job right away after hiring.
  • Review the client’s history — do they usually hire right away and have previous freelancers enjoyed working with them?
  • Consider the number of freelancers who have already submitted proposals and whether the client is interviewing others yet. While you can still submit to a project that already has many applicants or is in the interview stage, it may be more difficult to get the client’s attention.


Another thing you can do is to promote your Upwork profile on social media and job boards. Just make sure that you keep the communication on Upwork.
I also suggest visiting our Upwork AcademyCourses, and Blogs for more tips.


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.
