You profile looks good, and you can count yourself among the successful freelancers with the results you have achieved so far! I always enjoy reading your posts, too, always mildly sarcastic and on point, which I have to admit, I like. 

What you could do is create some nice related pics to put on your portfolio pieces - such as a screenshot of the publication, etc. Nice colorful shiny things always grab attention. 

Maybe try to do a larger variety of jobs so that you don't get stuck in very specific niches, if you get what I mean.

Thank you, love! I'll definitely try to add some color to my portfolio. I'll also try to apply to other types of jobs. I'd hate to get stuck in the romance writing genre forever.

You started your profile with a German word? 

I looked through your portfolio and profile and feel your texts sound a little old-fashioned with their usage of uncommon words. 

Maybe polish it a little more to make it more attractive to English native speakers, who might feel they need a more modern sounding text, if you are trying to attract those, that is. 

Writing is painfully overpopulated and you compete with native English writers who's skills just jump off the page, who's writing is seemingly effortless and a pure pleasure to read. This is what you must strive for.

Hello!  

 

This is great!  May I ask your help and input on my profile?  I haven't been able to land any jobs after one month of sending out proposals.  Thanks.

Hi all,

 

I would love to get feedback from you guys!

Brand new freelancer, don't have much to show in terms of a portfolio. I do have a file that I attach to relevant jobs, but I am not getting any replies.

Also, what is the "normal" ratio? After 5 proposals, should I expect that at least one client replies, or does it take more usually?

Thanks a lot!

Mike: I have a question for you.

My proposals are not working. I can send out ten proposals at a time with no response at all.I have sent over 30 with no response I am doing something wrong. It must be something major, someting out of step with Upwork.. Can I send you a few of my proposals?.

Jim

Hi - Thanks so much for this thread. Just created my profile today and would love any feedback you can provide. No idea what best practices are for an Upwork profile vs LinkedIn, etc.
