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.

I have gotten no response on this thread.  I have even directly messaged Mike, with no response.

Hi Grant,

 

I'm not specializing in your Category (3D modelling, etc), but based on my experience I would suggest updating your photo (it seems for the moment there are too many dark shadows). Also as others wrote, since Upwork search displays only a few top rows from the Overview, you might want to put the most important skills and experience to the top of the Overview. I also believe you can improve your Title, but because of the above I can't advise here. Continuous improvement of all three above things should make a noticable difference with time.

Hi Max, 

Advice noted on the photo, I am in process of updating that.  As regards to the rest, I am still confused because when I search for my category (google search etc) I show up at the top of the page.  I show up top rated, 100% success rate.  And yet after submitting some 30 or so proposals, I don't even get a profile view??

Hi Grant,

 

I've started to get much more replies after I've just changed a profile pic. Might be relevant to your case.

Btw, my profile views counters is broken from around 27th of July. Not sure if this issue affects everyone.

To get more replies I would suggest to improve your proposal texts, check client's stats before you apply. Hope it will help, thanks!
