Hello all! I'm new here and I am having a hard time finding clients. I've submitted a few proposal but I haven't heard anything. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I am a graphic design and I specialize in photomanipulation style pieces.

Myisha, I've been here for a year now and I have trouble finding new clients. I'm very grateful that most of the clients I have worked for have come back.

A few proposals isn't many at all. It's not unusual to have to wait months to get a client when you're new on the platform.

Don't worry too much. Just submit proposals that address the client's needs. Don't talk too much about yourself unless it's related to how you can help solve their problem. Clients only initially see the first two lines of your proposal, so make good use of that space.

Hello Myisha,

This thing happns with new freelancers, but dont worry keep trying and apply those jobs which you think that you are perfect fit for.  This message is just to encourage you to keep trying, by giving my example I also got my first job after a lot of struggle but now I am a successful freelancer and doing regular projects so keep going one day you will be “TOP RATED”.

Stay Positive

 

Thanks & Regards

I suggest hiding the test score that is below average.  Also, I would go with a more  adult-looking profile picture.

 KInda makes you wonder about the profile approval process, doesn't it?
