Would it be possible to review my profile?

 


First off, I think you have a rate problem, it is way too low for what you are doing and where you live (I'm assuming, never been to Sweden).

 

I think you want to rethink your whole approach here.  This is not a resume cover letter, this is a moment for you to sell what you do to a client. My personal opinion is that I don't expect clients to care much about me (initially) and really they have a problem and they want to find someone, anyone who can solve it.  So that is my mindframe and with it I look at your profile and all I see is you talking about yourself.

 

The way I believe a profile should be framed is to answer the clients problems quickly and succinctly.  If a client is looking at you what kind of problems are they coming with that you know how to solve.  Now, write something compelling about that problem that indicates you both know how to solve it and are going to be able to do it better than anyone else.

 

Looking at it again, I realize you don't have a lot of experience but you still need to find a way to frame to a client why they should pick you to solve their problems instead of just blah'ing out your credentials.

I have tried to set it to public, but it may take 3 business days to
happen.

Hello, Everyone!

Joined UpWork about 5 weeks back and I've been fairing well enough. But I'd like to know if there are adjustment or improvements I can make to my profile.

Thank you.

Hi Mike,

 

Thank you for your post! 

 

I would LOVE to have my profile reviewed and receive feedback. That would be awesome! I really need it.

 

What information do you need from me, if any?

 

Thank you so much for offering that great service!

Michele, you indeed have a smooth, professional and soothing voice. The portfolio is excellent. Here are few suggestions:

1. A quick Upwork search indicates that most other artists use "voiceover" as one word and so do many clients. Consider using "voiceover" in your title as it might match better with job descriptions. Also, look at skills list to see if those words match with job descriptions.  

2. You have earned $200 but have no work history. That seems unusual. Consider reaching out to Upwork to get that fixed. If you earned $200, client feedback needs to be visible.

3. Lastly, consider getting some testimonials from your previous clients. 

 

Good luck, I have no doubt that you are going to rock at this freelancing career.

Thank you for your quick and encouraging feedback! I really needed it.
Feeling a little discouraged at the moment.

The $200 is recent...like in the past week. (Waiting for payment to become
available.) When you say reach out to Upwork, what do you mean? Do you mean
submit more proposals on Upwork?

To get testimonials, do past clients have to get to the Upwork website and
write them there or can I use statements that have been made on LinkedIn
and other platforms?

Thanks SOOO much! I feel a little better.

Michele
