Hello experts,

 

Could you please review my profile and let me know what are the points of improvement?

Hello Sourav,

 

I think your profile looks great. I do not see much that needs to be improved.

 

The only recommendation I have is to remove the "with 3+ Years Experience" from your title. Upwork typically recommends those phrases be used in your overview/summary, which you do.

 

Everything else is good. I do not see any problems that would prevent a client from hiring you.

Hi Andrea

I am Nelson from Venezuela, I am new here on Upwork and I would love to know your opinion about my profile.

https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~01583513a6b6585e6b

I would also appreciate any advice from you. 

Thanks in advance

Hey Nelson, 

I'm not an expert freelancer but a community member. I viewed your profile and wanna give you some suggestions. 

💢Hourly rate too much high as a newbie freelancer. (Set it down) 

💢Profile headline not looking good. (Use keywords) 

💢Profile description. (It's shouldn't about you too much but your services) 

💢Profile completion isn't 100%.

 

I hope you'll find it good for you. 

Best

Saman.

Hi Hafsa,

 

You may have missed the review of your profile from July 17. You can see your profile review here.

 

In addition to the information in that review, you also need to change your profile photo. The picture in your photo should be a close-up image of your head and shoulders that clearly shows your face. Read through Upwork's best practices for How to Choose A Good Profile Picture.

Hafsa,

If you are trying to sell articles about dentistry, you need to make that clear from the very beginning. As it is, you say "Dentist" in your job title. There's no mention of writing in your title. It should say "Writer / Dental Expert" or something along those lines.

To focus on writing for dentists ... that's brilliant. But you have to make it clear that you are an expert at dental topics and a terrific writer. But make it clear that you a writer from the start.

Good luck.

Please review my profile and let me know if you have any suggestions on how I can improve it.

I'm grateful.

Hi Saman,

 

I think your profile is good. The only thing I would call attention to in your overview/summary is your use of emojis at the beginning of your summary. Keep in mind that only the first two sentences of your summary are shown to clients when they search for freelancers. You have a very small window of opportunity to grab their attention. Since some of that space is taken up by emojis, clients will not get as much information about your services and how you can help them.

 

The emojis at the beginning of your summary are not bad, but they do take up valuable space.

 

Other than that, your profile looks great. I do not see any huge problems that would prevent a client from hiring you.

Hello Ihor,

 

I looked through your profile and I think most of it is good. The only suggestions I have are:

 

Overview/Summary: Your summary is good, but I recommend removing the following: "...civil engineering and running a small manufacturing company." This is admirable, but it is not necessarily related to digital marketing services. Since clients are expecting to learn about a virtual assistant who can help with e-commerce and digital marketing, mentioning civil engineering and manufacturing might be confusing.

 

Portfolio: Add a portfolio to show samples of your work. The portfolio is a chance to make a positive first impression on potential clients. If you don’t have relevant examples to add to your portfolio, you can create items that demonstrate your skills.

 

Everything else in your profile looks fine.

Good afternoon- I'm new to freelancing but have a lot of experience in my field- I've created a profile, but doesn't seem to get any responses- please advise on what changes I need to complete to be successful here on Upwork- thank you

Hi Jeri,

 

Definitely a lot of experience throughout your profile!

 

Here is the trick when writing your overview/summary on Upwork: When prospective clients are searching for technical writers, only the first two sentences of your summary are shown. This means you have a very small window of opportunity to grab the client's attention. Clients care about freelancers who can get results, so you want them to see--within those first two sentences--what you can do for them.

 

Instead of focusing on experience early, I recommend revising your first bullet to be client-focused. This will help clients recognize their goals ("what you can do for them" ) within the first two sentences and hopefully, convince them to read your entire profile and hire you. Here is an example:

 

I'm an expert Technical Writer with over 35 years experience creating a variety of documentation for manufacturers, healthcare facilities, academic instituations, and other busineses. I can provide documentation management to include writing, editing, and maintaining user-friendly technical documents, user manuals, standard operating procedures, department work instructions, training documents, forms, planning documents, presentations, assembly instructions, process instructions, component specification, service bulletins, and tutorials for both software and hardware which include both verbal and visual elements.

 

(Then, I would say something like "Why choose me?" and add your other bullet points beneath it.)

 

-------------Why choose me?--------------

◉  Strong project management and leadership skills, with the ability to complete projects accurately and on time, while providing guidance to others. Extensive experience with documentation workflows.

◉  Excellent grammar, editing, and proofreading skills; ability to express ideas with clarity and logically; strong 2D and 3D image creating and editing, in raster and vector based; extensive experience interpreting engineering drawings, schematics, blueprints, sketches, charts, and graphs to assist in the development of procedures; knowledge of fabrication of parts

(...)

 

Your portfolio looks great, but be sure to add skill categories for each item. Similar to the skill categories in your profile skills list, the skills attached to your portfolio items will help Upwork match you with relevant jobs, and help your profile appear in search lists when clients search for your skills.

 

The other areas of your profile look good. I do not see any problems or issues that would prevent a client from hiring you.

 

Good luck!
