Hi there Sabrina,

First thing i would suggest you to not sell your work for free. With this, I mean, you should avoid low budget clients, especially those who offers less than $20, it is ridiculous - respect your valuable time. 
I would suggest you to chose the projects, search for projects you would like to work on, not just for getting the feedback.

Second and most important: Try to upload at least 4 of your best projects on your profile, the very first 4 when someone enters on your profile. That way you can attract clients and be sure that they are catchy. I think it is the best way to be hired. How I think, any visitor approximetaly stays on your profile for 3-6 seconds.

Next thing is also important communication - Ask a few questions when you bid on the job, regarding the project - that way client would see your truly interest on his project.
Keep it up,
Milos

Welcome Ankur,

 

Two suggestions.  First you need to change your profile pic to a pic of yourself or no pic at all.  It is a policy violation that could get you suspended until it's corrected.

 

Second, instead of a numbered list of your skills you should write an overview in paragraph form telling the client what you can do for them.  It's not a biography, the client don't want to hear things like where you grew up, family or that you are a quick learner.  Tell them how you can solve their business needs.  

 

Good Luck!!!

Ankur:

 

When you write your proposal, focus on how you can help the client achieve their objectives. Be sure to mention similar past work you have done.

 

Do you have testimonials from brick and mortar clients?  Be sure to add those in as well.  Are you certified or licensed by any group or agency?  Add that to your profile.

 

Speaking of your profile, instead of a list of services write about how your services bring value.  Do you bring order to chaos?  Also what software do you use?

 

Think from your potential client's point of view.

 

Best of Luck!

Cheryl
