Clients Not Responding at All

Also, when a client first sees your profile and your proposal, they only see the first two lines unless they scroll down.  "Jack of all trades, master of none" is dreadful in my opinion.

Also, kindly add more portfolio in your profile, for eg, if you do Logos, add 'Logo portfolio' for 10-15 logos, similarly do it for your other gigs. If the client won't trust your skills by looking at your portfolio, no matter how many connects you use for sending a proposal, chances will be less to hire you.

try to add headline like 'Best Logo Designer' or 'Experienced Graphic Designer', since the client receives 5-10 proposals normally for a single job posted, hence not all of them have adequate time to read the entire profile, but what they see is the headline first and then take the decision to read further about the freelancer.

have a happy journey with Upwork

I absolutely will! Thank you so much for your suggestions and kind words. I can absolutely see where I was wrong in my approach and will improve my profile accordingly.
I really appreciate your help. You’ve been wonderful.

Which sounds like perfectly good, actionable advice to me. Advice that may well directly help Keren to get more work. Surely that's a good thing? Right?

Other people might also have some other advice that might be useful to her. Alas, it seems she has taken constructive criticism to heart and chosen to make her profile private. As is her right, of course.

I find it quite baffling really. Here, people have direct access to people that are experienced and successful in freelancing offering their advice - FOR FREE. Yet, people choose to close off that potentially very valuable resource, despite them having already admitted that they are in need of such asssitance. 

Personally, I would not care less if people called me **Edited for Community Guidelines** if it meant I would make more money. But hey ho, it's not my loss if others choose to reject advice that might help them. If anything it might mean less competition.

Hi all,

 

I'd like to follow up and kindly ask everyone to keep in mind our Community Guidelines when posting in the Community. I understand that different communication styles can affect how a message is perceived by different participants. Let's give each other the benefit of doubt when it comes to the sentiment our messages might be projecting as well as the deserved respect and courtesy, and avoid personal confrontation. Thank you.
