Would you mind having a quick scan of my profile please? New to this so any feedback welcome and appreciated!
Your profile talks about "us". Your profile should talk about YOU.
And if possible, you should add a portfolio.
Regarding the text of your presentation, I cannot tell you much. I don't know that area and my English is not good. I guess someone else can show up and give you some other advice on that part.

Hi, Mary. I just joined the Upwork platform recently and I'd also love to get your feedback on my profile. Thanks in anticipation.
I hope someone will advise you more since I do not speak English and I cannot comment on the content.
But I can tell you to eliminate the first line since it occupies an unnecessary space and it is data that the client can already see.
It also removes the name of your website, although it is not a direct link, with copy and paste in the search engine it appears, and it is a form of external contact.

Hi there, Maria. Thanks a lot for quickly reviewing my profile. Although, I didn't get specific points you put out though. Do you mean I need to remove my website's link completely? And about eliminating the first line, is it that of my general profile description?
Yes, It is against Upwork TOS to have any link in your presentation, portfolio or video that allows you to get in touch.
You can send a link to your portfolio when you submit a proposal.
You are wasting the first few lines giving information that is not necessary. Those two lines are what clients see of your presentation, so get straight to the description.
Hopefully, you doing well. I am a mechanical engineer with good experience but I'm new at this platform. Can you please review profile of the undersigned so that shortcomings may be overcome. I am constantly sending proposals with work proof i.e. related files but getting no response till date. Please guide me.
It will be highly appreciated.
Thanking you in anticipation,
Thanks for your post. I'm Upwork Success Partner and an independent professional on Upwork for more than 6 years, and I'll be happy to share a few tips on how you can improve the marketability of your profile:

would anyone please review my profile? I'm continuously sending proposals but didn't get any job yet. would be grateful if you check is anything wrong with my profile.
Have you verified yet your profile by Upwork? If not please make it first and try to complete your profile with 100% rating. I think you know everything but still I am saying that, you should send proposal as per your niche and mention all skills properly whichever your experience have. Thank You
Hi, Mary and everybody, how are you doing?
I am pretty new to UpWork (started two years ago but only for two months, and then came back for real four months ago) and I would love to have your feedback about my profile.
Thank you very much in advance!
Yeah, It's essential to have a professional picture on your profile.
I know many would like to maintain a humble and straightforward look, but putting up something nice can impress a client who didn't want to hire you in the first place.
It's somewhat a trick I used when I started my journey, and it worked.
Apart from what Mary has said, I will like to add that new freelancers or just every freelancer should have one profile picture in use as long as 12 months or more before changing them.
And before you change your profile picture, ensure you have no ongoing contract because some clients may feel uncomfortable seeing new picture on your profile everyday. It could be very suspicious.
So, take your time and snap a professional picture that you can use for a long time.

Hello, I'd be grateful if you could review my profile.
What happened? You don't have a profile.
It's the famous Upwork forum curse - someone posts something and suddenly their profile is gone. But the photo lingers on like a ghost.
Helo respected sir.i am new on upwork but i have 5 year experience about web development and i have sotware house .Could you check my profile and provide me with feedback. I will appreciate it! Thank you!
I'm new freelancer. I don't know how to make an attractive profile. Can you give me suggestion that I make my profile attractive?. Thanks in advance
Hello Musadiq A, welcome to UpWork!
I checked your profile and everything seems great except your description. While reading it I was able to see that the structure of your sentences was not so great. I think that a stronger and a more professional description could make your profile more uniqe and more appealing.
To fix that I would advise you to write a more in depht description and run it through Grammarly 🙂
Hi. I already wrote to the community but I want to ask you personally, could you also check my profile if I already got approved? I don't know how things goes around here
Thank you in advance
Hi, and thank you for the profile review.
I'm an HR and Talent Acquisition consultant. I specialize in helping small and medium sized companies get off the ground and grow with programs such as handbooks, building a recruiting function, policy, and strategy guidance.
I'd love some feedback. I know I need to work on some more portfolio examples.
Hi Sohel Ahmad,
I glanced at your profile, and you're off to a great start. I'm also really glad to see you've already earned a Rising Talent badge!
I've noticed your availability is set to "As Needed - Open to Offers"; different freelancers use this to communicate different things so it can be a detractor to receiving relevant invites. Consider updating this, as well as a few of your skilll tags.
Sometimes clients aren't familiar with the toolset, but rather search for a type of service. Try to focus on this in your skill tags, and mention specialized tools/software in your overview.
Good luck with winning projects!
