Hello Saqib

I have carefully reviewed your profile and I guess it's ok just that ytou don't have a well standard profile

Your profile is meant for you to introduce yourself, your expertise, years of ewxperience, people you have worked with and alot of things you know you might add

Your profile is not meant to be short

Add more portfolio

I see your skills are ok, but have to keep updating your skills regularly

Create more project catalogue, you can createw up to 20 project catalogue

Add  more employment history

Add your other experience as well, you can add up to 8

 

Kindly review my upwork and give me your feedback: https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~0124772f1a5b6edd42

Hello Aleena,

 

Overall, I think your profile looks good.

 

However, I suggest not telling clients that you recently launched your Amazon VA services since most clients are looking for Amazon VAs with a lot of experience. Also, you should remove your name from the first sentence since clients can see your name on your profile. Clients can only see the first two sentences of your summary when they search, so you have very little space to grab their attention. You do not want to waste space repeating your name.

Instead, I would phrase it like this:

 

I am a self-motivated Amazon Virtual Assistant who can assist you with administration, content creation, and product sourcing for your Amazon business. I focus on Amazon wholesale and private label models, and it would be my pleasure to share my methods to help grow your business.

 

My Services are:

(...)

 

I think the other areas of your profile look good.

Rama,

 

Andrea is an Upwork Moderator. The moderators provide valuable information to freelancers and moderate the Forums, but they do not provide profile reviews nor can they help you get contract work on Upwork.

 

I think you need to revise your title to something more meaningful to clients. Using a title like "Researcher" is vague and clients will have no idea what you do.

 

In your profile, your overview/summary should not be a copy/paste of a résume. Instead, your summary should be an overview of your skills and services you can provide to clients. Also, parts of your summary are written from a third-person point of view ("they") when everything in your summary should be written from a first-person point of view ("I").

 

Make the first part of your summary an introduction instead of a list. You can easily do this by moving the content at the end, to the top, and adding blank lines between paragraphs. For example:

 

I am a skilled Medical Researcher with a Ph.D. Zoology and MSc. Zoology with extensive experience in wildlife biology, molecular/cell culture work, data management, and flow cytometer data analysis. I conduct extensive research through data collection, data management, and data analysis.

 

I have conducted in-depth research in wildlife biology, focusing on animal behavior, habitat analysis, and population dynamics. I have also worked on molecular and cell culture work, using advanced techniques and equipment to study biochemistry cellular processes, and cell signaling. I can help manage extensive datasets related to wildlife biology research using Excel, ensuring accuracy and integrity.

 

I have also analyzed flow cytometry data, a crucial tool in cellular analysis, to make informed conclusions and recommendations for further research. This experience allows me to work as a data analyst, collecting and organizing wildlife data, and utilizing Excel for data analysis. My expertise in these areas has contributed to the field of zoology and wildlife conservation.

 

My experience includes:

• Research experience (Wildlife Biology, Molecular/Cell Culture Work, Data Management, Flow Cytometer Data Analysis)

 

(...)

 

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.

 

Also, add more skill categories to your skills list. Consider adding Zoology, Data Analysis, Biology, Molecular Biology, and any others related to your work. It is important to keep your skills list updated with relevant skills categories so that Upwork can match you with relevant jobs, and so your profile will appear when clients search for your skills.

 

Good luck!

Hello Ajarat Adeyemi

 

Thank you for the review and your prompt response. You have described everything very clearly. I'll try my best to improve my profile in the light of your advices. Although, there are few things that lack and could not solve, e.g. my work history, i.e. on other platform, not possible to mention on the Upwork. etc

 

I reviewed your profile. I don't have the words to describe as it should be. Your profile is sooo rich and professional. Very inspiring and really great to follow as an Example. 

 

Best regards.

 

Hello Iftikhar

Hello Atmiya

I have carefully reviewed your profile and is not well standard enough

Actually your profile is well detailed but I feel like you should have a specialized profile 

Then add more skills to your profile to make it visible to buyers

Also create more project catalogue and change the title of the one you had is not eye catchy enough. Add more experience and also employment history

 

Kindly review my profile and give me your feedback: https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~0124772f1a5b6edd42

Muhammad Tayyab,

 

Your profile looks good, but clients rarely like being told to "hire me." I suggest revising it to something like:

 

"If you are looking for sales and great conversions of leads into orders then reach out to me and let's discuss how I can help."

Hello, I switched from fiverr to upwork and it gonna be hard for me to start without some helpful feedbacks.
so I'll be glad of getting some feedbacks that will boost my account and give me motivation.

THANK YOU

Yassine,

Tell us more about your past projects. It will sound much more convincing if you can provide some details about the jobs you've done.

Hi Experts! 

I am new here. Have a look on my profile pls and let me know your kind reviews and suggestions.

Fatima,

You should have an English-speaking editor or writer review your write-up before you post it. You've got a few syntax issues in your short write-up and one or two grammatical errors. 

An English-speaking editor or writer should be able to help you out.

Hi, M U,

The entire focus of a profile should be what services you are offering and why you are an expert at that. As such, you should change your job title. "Freelancer" is not a service its a category of working. 

 

Think job titles: Writer or Graphic Desigher or Web Developer. That's what you want . Something like that.

 

Secondly, your write-up is too brief and not 100 percent convincing. To be convincing, you need is details. Provide specifics about the jobs you've done in the past. You worked for  "remote television ..." Well, tell us about those projects. Were they small, large, medium? Did you work with team? What kind of results did you get? What were your responsibilities during those projects? 

The more details you provide, the more convincing your profile will sound. Remember, nobody knows you from Adam at this point, so you have to prove you have expertise as much as you can, rather than just claiming you do.


Good luck.

Please review my profile & let me know if there are any recommendations to add to my profile.

Shihab Uddin.

Shihab,

 

Two changes I would make to your profile:

 

1) The first paragraph of your overview/summary sounds good, but the second paragraph starts with a goal that most clients are not interested in. Most clients come to Upwork to find freelancers--not employees. When you mention your career path and your potential, you are focusing on yourself, and clients are not concerned about you--clients want to focus on their needs. I recommend changing the following:

 

"My goal is to collaborate with you to fully understand your unique needs and deliver high-quality support. I aspire to contribute positively, not only as an individual but also as a valuable team member, ensuring your complete satisfaction."

 

In your last paragraph, remove the reference to employers.

 

"I am committed to delivering accurate, timely, and cost-effective results for my clients."

 

2) Add short job descriptions to each job in your employment history. This is especially important when the jobs are highly relevant to the services you provide on Upwork.

Hello Mehtab,

 

A few suggestions to help improve your profile:

 

1) In your title, use the correct format for each word: Front-End Web Developer | React.js | Next.js | Shopify | Wordpress

 

2) Remove the first sentence from your overview/summary: "👋 Hello and welcome to my profile! " Why? Because only the first two sentences of your summary are shown to clients when they search for freelancers. This means you have limited space to grab their attention, and you do not want to waste space with greetings.

 

The information under "What I Offer:" is more important to clients than the information under "Why Choose Me?" and "My Skill Set:"  I recommend placing ":magnifying_glass_tilted_left:What I Offer:"  and its information ahead of the others since clients are more interested in getting results.

 

At the end of your summary, everything after "FRONT-END DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT:" is a repeat and should be removed to reduce the size of your summary.

 

3) Consider adding Front-End Development to your skills list since you use it in your title and summary. We are allowed only 15 skill categories, so you will have to remove one if you choose to add Front-End Development.

Hello Reed,

 

I like the approach in your profile. Your overview/summary is well-written and informative. Your consultation, portfolio, skills, project catalog, certfications, and b all look great.

 

The only potential issue I see is the length of your summary. Clients rarely read long summaries and typically only look through the first three or four paragraphs. However, your first three paragraphs are great and include information contents want to hear. This might entice them to continue reading. The good thing is, everything after the first three paragraphs sounds great too, so I'm reluctant to suggest shortening it. I think it will be fine.

 

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

 

Good luck!
