Just wondering what Upwork clients see first when reviewing bids. Do they see a snippet from the cover letter or from the questions?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, the questions are listed first, then the cover letter after those. Which is really a terrible layout considering ~85% of the jobs that clients post lack any real information that is necessary to answer the (more often than not) canned questions. When posting a job, I write my own questions that are relevant to the job (ie: what software will you be using, how much experience do you have with *insert specific thing here*, and what is the most complex *related project* you have worked on?).
I am sorry for the late response. I would like to confirm that what Sagar shared is correct. When clients receive proposals, first they see the answers to the additional questions and then the message or proposal. Here is a screenshot as an example.
Can clients see previous or past bids by a freelancer ? I belive that they would see past work done and the price for the same but would they see bids that the freelancer did not win ?
or would they know how many bids a freelancer has made ?
Clients won't see the jobs that you have submitted a proposal to. Clients will see the answers to the additional questions first. Then they’ll see the cover letter next. If there are additional questions on the job post, the answers to the additional questions will be the first they see before the cover letter.
