Look around at other Upwork profiles, searching for ones with high ratings, high earnings, great client reviews.
Your write up should be confident, friendly and edifying. What I see is overconfidence and unfriendly. "Don't ask me for conventional jobs." What is that all about? Do you think bossing people around before you've even met them is going to help you get contracts? Besides, you got here, what, yesterday, and you already feel you can turn down work? Even if that were the case, why would you say that? If you don't want a conventional job (whatever that might be) then don't apply for them.
You posted a very negative, lazy write up, in my opinion.
You're intrductory video is terrific. Did you put that together yourself?
What I recommend is you look at a few graphic designer profiles, seeking out ones that show high earnings and great feedback reviews. See if you can find a few ideas from them about how to expand your write-up, which is very sparse.
like your write up. Unfortunately, my technical skills are not at your level, so it's hard for me to comment further.
still, I liked what I saw. And you've got great reviews. Impressive.
To announce are new to Upwork and have only a limited amount of experience is to invite scammers, not clients.
See if you can rewrite that, but don't giveaway anything about being new to writing.
There's a lot of competition in your field. You need to have someone edit your write-up and then write more. Put some passion into it. Try to describe your range of styles and how your designs have helped other people.
First of all, please design a house for me. I think your work is brilliant--original and very cool.
However, with all that talent, I wonder why you can't say more about your work or something about how your previous clients appreciated your designs. Something ...
You have to write a little more so potential clients stay with you a bit longer. Most people don't make a hiring or money-spending decision that quickly.
Pretend the reader is a guest at your house. Try to make them comfortable. Brag a little. Keep it light and informative. Pretend they're visiting your studio and you're the hostess. You don't have to oversell, but a little bit of bragging is forgivable.
Iam new to Upwork .Iam an acccountant and would like to do bookkeeping and accounting jobs.Kindly review my profile.Your advise would be greatly appreciated.
One problem with the Internet is people are so far away. That means people on Upwork are hiring, essentially, strangers, people they will never meet.
As such, it helps to just tell people one or two personal details. Something like, "I'm a big soccer fan who loves strawberry milkshakes," or maybe, "I'm an avid bike rider and love to cook."
Obviously, you have to think of your own personal details to share. But it doesn't matter what it might be; clients like that you sound friendly.
You caught me at a very bad time. I'm just back from the hospital and haven't looked at the Upwork site in quite some time.
Really quickly, your profile is fine ... except (there's always an except) you go on and on about yourself and forget to mention your clients very much.
Clients don't want to see your skillis; they want to see what you can do for them. As such, "I am skilled at Adobe photoshop" turns into "I am an expert at Adobe Photoshop who can put dazzle into your marketing and branding, draw in new customers and turn casual visitors into long-term customers."
See the difference? You talk about your skills, and that's fine, but you have to turn the corner. The corner is a way to get the client to believe you understand their problems. If you can convince clients you understand them ... that's a very powerful step in the right direction.
I appreciate your help from before, and I was hoping to pick your brain over again. I believe I need some advice on crafting better proposal language when propose on client offerings. I feel like I should be getting a few more interviews than I am, and I cannot help but wonder if my fee is too high or I am saying something off. I can send sample proposals if that helps. I really appreciate your generosity.
Your write-up is very busy and passionate. It has tons of enthusiasm and makes lots of promises. I kind of love it.
On the other hand, I am not a big fan of all those icons or emoji symbols. (I don't know what to even call them.)
to me, all those little check marks and symbols are a messy distraction. You're a writer, so trust your writing. Let the words have their chance.
But that's just me. I'm old school. I was raised in the grand, old days of typewriters. So what do I know?
It's just a matter of taste. For me, it looks cluttered. But to someone younger it probably looks standard.
I still love the enthusiasm. Its friendly as can be, so that is a big plus.
Pardon all the typos here; I am only typing with one thumb.
Dear @anthony H
I joined upwork few days back. 2 of my data entry proposals were accepted, but the client selected another person meanwhile. Please review my profile and let me improve..
