Hello there!

 

I am happy to be here, and allmost on the point of completing my 1st upwork project! Ohh, that feels good, I had many attempts in the past but this time... I nailed it 🙂

 

My problem is, I have a lot and quite varied experience, freelancing, business owner, Networking, software architect, proj manager ... I allways find it hard to narrow it down and present it attractively, though as comprehensivly as possible in my profile.

 

I would really appreciate some feedback on this, from experienced freelancers who basically  have made it to the other side.

 

thank you!

Hi,

I'm a beginner here on Upwork. I had joined in July but still struggling to get clients. I've sent many proposals but no reply. So, please I want a profile review on what am I doing wrong and how to improve.

 

Thankyou.

Hi,

 

I am new to Upwork and trying to get my profile to attract my ideal clients.  Can you all take a look and give me some pointers and suggestions.

Ashley,

I'm not a big fan of rhetorical questions ... "Want to spend less time writing ...?" The people you are asking already know they want to spend less time writing .... so what's the point asking them?

Just assertively name your skills and services. "I am a writer with a background in biology who can provide you with ..." 


Then tell people what they will gain from hiring you. "You will be able to spend more time in the lab and less time at your desk." 

But that's just me. Some people like rhetorical questions -- not me. I think they waste people's time and sound like a cheap, late-night television commercials,

 

That said, I think in your first sentence you use the word "then." Tsk, tsk. Be a writer. The word you want is "than." The word "then" signifies a place in time. The word "than" is used when comparing two things. "This is better than that."

 

Lastly, when you say "Biologist with data visualization, research and writing experience," you are, essentially, asking the client to choose what you do or what you want to do. That puts the onus on your clients -- like walking into a store and the proprietor says, "I can fix your car or sell you shoes -- what do you want?" The client is going to think, "I want you to tell me what you do well, not ask me to decide."

That's how freelancing works best. Yes, people will hire you for random contracts if you just say "I'm a smart person ... what do you want me to do?" But freelancing works best if you say, "I am a writer who specializes in biology and academic wriring involving natural sciences ..." or something like that. You'll get more work with that approach than with "I'm a biologist who is available for all kinds of things ..."

All that said, Upwork has a policy that forbids helping students with their academic work. It's considered a form of enabling -- helping do someone else's homework. So, you might want to check out that policy and make sure you aren't putting yourself at risk here. 

Hope this helps.

Hello, I am new on this platform. I have 3 questions. 1)Can you please check my profile and let me know what I should have to improve? 

2) Can I request my client(out of upwork) to give me her job through upwork.. Will it be the correct way? 

3) I have some non upwork clients.. But they don't have any linkedin profile.. But they have their own website.. Is there any chance to show their feedbacks about my works on my profile? 

My apologies if I am asking too questions. 🙏

Chandrani,

First of all, your rate is much too low for your skill level. In that regard, low rates invite scammers and amateurs. So raise your rates quickly.

Secondly, Chandrani, this is your time to sell!!!! You're being way too modest. You are an excellent artist with great skill and creative flair ... strut your stuff. Don't be shy. This is the place to crow a little. Put some more energy and confidence in it.

Thank you.

Hi! I've been away for years because I pursued a dream and a different set of skills medically. Now I want to work online again. My previous work experiences was general and now I'm planning to pursue a medically-inclined virtual work. Do I have to create a new profile or keep this old account? Please advise. Thank you.

Hello, can you view my profile and give feedback on it?

Cosmas,

Look above at what I said to Hamza. I have no idea what you are selling? Generally, freelancers are selling a service. I have no idea what service you are offering and why I would gain anything from hiring you.

hi, can you check my account and suggest improvements?

 

Hamza,

It's great that you're a biologist, but what services are you selling? You sound like a smart fellow, but I have no idea what you're selling, so why would I be interested in your profile?

Would be super grateful if someone could provide feedback on my profile? The biggest thing I'm struggling with is making my profile look appealing without previous clients to show off in my portfolio or testimonials.
