There are a lot of things that do not match, clients see this as well. I am not sure about your intentions here. Moreover, English is NOT your native language. This has been proven by the sentences above.

Guess what? Success doesn't come just by putting some words on a profile and lists about what you can allegedly do. It doesn't necessarily mean success doesn't come when a profile picture looks sad, but never hurts to liven it up with a little smile or something.

Is your profile written in your words and not taken from anywhere online?  

Everyone is always told to write in their own words, only show the skills they can actually do, and don't include any personal website information in your portfolio- like your Fiverr account profile. 

Call customer service for help. They'll get you the information you need. 

Oh and it can take a year or more to be successful depending on what your line of work is. I"m not successful like many people here are, but I'm happy with the clients I have and to me that's successful.

Mariska P thank you very much. Happy to hear from you.

 

Maybe you do not like my described offer list but what I could do to express detailed about my services. If I do not write services or offer list then how I could explain details about my services or offers.

 

Ya my profile picture look sad, I am thinking to change it. You may notice that all my socila media profile picture is same. Now If I have to change it then I have to create a new image and replace it in all my social profiles. You could search at google for me and then you will find all my online profiles. I am also a SMM or social media marketer. This profile picture changing is something dificult for me. But I accept your suggestion and hope that at very near future I will change it. 

 

I wrote my profile by me. Also I changed it many times to express me as very well. 

 

I told you that I am social media marketer. At SMM have one important term that how well you at social media or what your brand identity, If you search at google then you will get my online presence details. Also to know about my brand presence you would search for my personal website. This includes for presenting my brand presence at online. Because I am also a social media marketer. If you are a social media marketer or public relation manager then if any one would ask you one question that : you are a brand manager or public relation manager so what your brand presence or how good your brand presence online ? If your brand presence is not well at online then how you would work for another peoples brand development. 

 

My portfolio do not showing my fiverr account as far as I remember. But I have a link at upper side on portfolio that showing my behance big portfolio link. That for detailed expressing my portfolio. Could you suggest me to remove my external portfolio link ? Then I will remove it. 

 

Ok I will try over the year to get my first job. 

 

Thank you again.

Mariska P thank you very much. Happy to hear from you. Hi, and your'e welcome!

 

Maybe you do not like my described offer list but what I could do to express detailed about my services. If I do not write services or offer list then how I could explain details about my services or offers.

It's not really me that has to worry about the long list, but it's the clients you're trying to attract. For me, I like to see everything in a nutshell. It's been mentioned here that intead of telling us all your accomplishments maybe you could narrow them down into one or two areas, tell the client what you're bringing to their table. For instance, how you alone are going to increase their profits, or how you're going t increase his staff's productivity. I can't say what you would bring to the table and maybe you said it in your profile , but it was too lengthy a read to me.

I understand that in some cultures smiling isn't really a thing, I remember my old family photos from the Netherlands and none of us smiled. I didn't even smile until I got much older and that's only beacuase I want to stretch out my wrinkles. lol. 

But put a little life on your mouth and do what Tyra says and 'smeyeze' (smile with your eyes) and you'll be much more friendly looking! I'd pactice first in the mirror until you nail it though. Smiley Happy 

 

I wrote my profile by me. Also I changed it many times to express me as very well. Awesome! That's one hurdle not to worry about!

If your brand presence is not well at online then how you would work for another peoples brand development. Yup, you have to have a good online presence, I agree. 

 

My portfolio do not showing my fiverr account as far as I remember. But I have a link at upper side on portfolio that showing my behance big portfolio link. That for detailed expressing my portfolio. Could you suggest me to remove my external portfolio link ? Then I will remove it. 

 

Since I do investigate people or things when I want or need to, I did investigate from your portfolio, which led me to your Fiverr account. I'm not going to tell you to remove it, because I don't have the 'cred' here in the forum to make such important decisions. A moderator would most certainly tell you whether it's necessary. As a guru my words are taken with a grain of salt usually but that's only me because most people think I'm a flake anyway.lol. 

 

Ok I will try over the year to get my first job. 

 

Keep at it, be patient,  and keep other sources of income at the same time. At this time I only use Upwork to find work because not too many people are kicking in my door to have me write for them. They prefer the established people. I figure maybe some more cool people ,like the clients I have, will take chance on me eventually. Smiley Happy 

So never give up Mohhammad. Your time will come. 

 

And in case you're interested, here's a very fun cool language program you or someone you know might be interested in: https://www.duolingo.com/ 

You or someone you know can brush up on English, or many of the other languages they offer! I'm still planning to become an expert in Esperonto, but haven't mastered Spanish, French, or Dutch yet. 

Did I say it's free? It IS! 

Have a good day, 

Mar

 I don't even see the link now Mohammad I must have been hallucinating! lol.. 

Take your time on shortening it up, and really make sure you tell the client what you'll do for them and through that they'll know why yu're the right person for the job. 

 

As for my pic? That's as good as it's gonna get. Older women love a more 'distant' placement and definitely complimentary lighting. Smiley Wink 

thanks though! Should I need help with pictures, I'll get a hold of you!!! Smiley Happy

As a Public Relations Specialist that didn't even consider trying to write press releases or to develop and implement PR campaigns in a language I don't have perfect command of, let alone try to build a career on Upwork focusing on these skills, I'm pretty surprised to see profiles like yours.

 

I don't know how to put this, but... focus on skills that don't require perfect English grammar, perfect spelling, and an incredible vocabulary.

 

Needless to mention that no matter what's your native language, if you have writing or communication studies and/or work background, you KNOW how to use punctuation, spaces, etc. It doesn't look like it reading your posts.

 

A well written overview means nothing when you write a possible client and fail to prove you have the skills you say you do in your overview.
