Hi Mike et al,
I seem to not get any new jobs the last couple of months... Could you please check out my profile? I would appreciate your input and comments very much.
Nov 28, 2022 10:51:39 AM Edited Nov 28, 2022 11:03:27 AM by Anthony H
My first thought was that your write-up was about twice the length it should be. This is clearly a place where less is more.
My second thought is that I really don't like rhetorical questions. So, I would delete that entire first paragraph.
Clients already know they are "struggling with Excel sheets ..." etc. So why are you asking them that? That first paragraph is just a waste of your client's time.
Then take out that paragraph near the end that starts with "As you can see from my client's feedback ..."
If they can see it, why are you pointing that out to them? Your clients aren't children. They can see it. They read it. Why are you belaboring the point?
If you take out those two paragraphs you will find you haven't lost a thing. If you take out the first paragraph, clients might actually read enough to get to those terrific quotes you posted. Those are great. Don't make it so it's difficult or time consuming to get to the best part of your write-up (those great reviews).
You seem very friendly, which is absolutely great, but after too much bragging, it just gets tiresome.

Hope you're doing well. I have been following your feedback and noticed they are always very spot on. My name is Laila and I am new on Upwork and would highly appreciate it if you could review my profile.

I am new to upword and would like to know if my profile is optimized.
Please let me know your suggestions to improve my profile.
Nov 28, 2022 10:43:11 AM by Anthony H
When you don't have any client reviews to point to, what is lacking is the confidence clients need to hire you. Without those reviews from previous clients, you have to supply that confidence yourself.
Your profile isn't terrible, but you might want to add more. Use words like "experienced," "succesfull," "great feedback from previous employers." Use words that instill confidence. "Excellent track record ..." or "high response rate ..."
Also, use those words in reference to your work, not yourself. It doesn't matter that you're motivated, what matters is that you "get the job done" or that you "always hit deadlines."
Whatever adds confidence will help.

Absolutely the truth she needs to hear pertaining to her freelance journey on Upwork. I understand the fact that she's curious to get almost everything up and running but still, it takes time to know the right information to put up there.
Nov 28, 2022 07:02:44 PM by Anthony H
Excellent write up. Here's a trick that might help: Take that really great endorsement quote, cut and paste it so it's the first thing in your write up (which is excellent, as I said). Anyway, in this manner the first thing people will read is a quote from someone who hired you and thought you were well worth the money.
As it is, I wouldn't touch a word otherwise.

Thanks in advance for your help and assitance

You have to put in a bit more effort than that. The basics are this: What are you selling and what will the clients gain from hiring you. "I am a French teacher who can get you from day one to complete fluency or simply help you advance or practice in one of the great languages on Earth ..."
Put some passion in it, but stick to the basics: What are you selling and what do people gain from hiring you?

Hello, I look forward to having you review my profile.
Nov 28, 2022 12:38:53 PM by Anthony H
The Upwork profile page is designed to make it easy for prospective clients to get to know something about you. You're doing the opposite. You're making it difficult.
In the first place, you ask people to go over to your website ... that's a chore, which gets you to a site that says, "Oh, hello there," as if they weren't expected. But you directed them there ... so it's not unexpected.
That sounds picky, but marketing is all about the meta message -- the message people feel in the gut, not the message of words and information, particularly.
All you have to do is write a few sentences here. Your profile kind of says, "I'm too lazy to do that."
I also get this vibe that you are selling your creativity. This isn't what people want. They want creative film making or creative marketing or whatever, but you have to make this easy for your clients, not cryptic. Tell them: "I am a creative film maker who can provide you with ..."
Or whatever ... "I am a designer with a wide range of styles ... "
Go that way. Make it very easy for people to trust you. Don't dance around. Make it simple.

If you were walking down Main Street you would see a sign saying "Liquor Store." You would think: "Oh, they sell liquor there."
Then, if you passed a store with a sign that said "Shoe Store," you would think, "Oh, they must sell shoes there."
Then you come to a sign that says "Dependable and Honest." And you wouldn't have a clue what that meant. Most people are dependable and honest -- at least enough of them are that it's taken as a starting point for most relationships. So it has no economic value at all.
What are you selling? Freelancers are people in business for themselves who are selling, generally, a service of one kind or another -- writers, graphic designers, illustrators, accountants, voiceover artists, etc.
Your profile then says, "I am a writer who can ......"
Upwork isn't a place for finding a job. It's a place for selling services to people.

I would be grateful if anyone could check my profile and give suggestions on how to improve it.
Nov 28, 2022 07:08:22 PM by Anthony H
Can you be a bit more specific about your experiences? Can you give some idea of what the clients gained from your work?
Just making up an example here, this might be, "I worked on Power Point presentations for a sales company that has helped train hundreds of their employees."
That's just made up, of course, but if you could add two or thiree descriptions like this it may help.
That's just one opinion, but maybe worth a try.
Nov 29, 2022 05:37:05 AM by Sanjana P
Thanks a lot, Anthony! I'll definitely try that. Do let me know if there are other things that I should change.
