Excellent start, Gita! Including a video is a great step. Do you have any portfolio items that you could display? Your specialized profile is shorter than general profile. You have 15 years of experience and hence, some bragging rights in the area of training & development, right? I'd encourage you to add more. 

Good luck, and have fun freelancing!!

Hey Gita, Well done on setting up your profile. Great Start. A few  important updates I recommend doing:

 

1) Change your profile "Title" to something that clearly explains what problem you are solving for what clients.

I like to think of   "Title" as "Your Value Proposition".  When clients are faced to choose from a pool of talent they need to quickly and easily understand what value you bring to the table. This is critical and it also helps you establish your niche, stand out of the crowd, get more work, and charge more!

 

2) While your profile "Overview" is nice and descriptive I suggest looking at it from a client's perspective. They have a problem and you can provide a solution. That's one of the reasons why people hire.  Replace words "I, ME, Years of Experience, " with "You, You will get, etc..." The hard truth is people don't care much about other people they care about themselves and how you can help them in their situation...This is fundamentally important to understand. Everything on your profile needs to be about clients and how you help them!

 

3) Your intro video is nice yet you can make it better.  3 Important you want to cover on your video:

 

1. Quick Intro (This can be the same as your title) Here is a great recipe for this:
 
My area of expertise is helping ______ to ______ by ________.
I typically work with __________ and I help them to ________
 
2. You want to quickly explain your work process. Don't got into fine details and don't use too much tech jargon.  Let people know you have a proven process you follow
 
3. Explain what it's like to be working together with you and what people can expect.
 
You want your prospects to think “That’s me” and “That’s my situation right now” and “I definitely want to achieve that result and work with this person”
 
To your success!
Tom

Hey Fayzun

 

Just had a look at your profile. A few things absolutely need to do to improve it:

 

1) Check the post above and implement all the same things I suggested above. 

2) Add a video to your profile. 

3) Increase your hourly rate. Architects with 6 years of experience don't charge $6/h. Great architects are expensive. People across the world know that. Unless you want to compete for the lowest price...

4) Decide what you want to do. Be an architect or graphic designer. You can't do both things well.  Your clients will get confused by what it is you do...Find your niche.

 

To your success!

Tom

Add a little detail to your title, as in what kind of architectural services you offer.

Are you planning to offer writing and transcribing in your native language only? That would be fine, if you want to attract English speaking clients, you must improve your text and correct all grammar and other mistakes. If you offer transcription, punctuation and spelling has to be flawless, and it should be not neccessary to point out to you that you misspelled transcription. 

You definitely need a portfolio to present your prior work.

I'm not sure what you do. Are you a physical therapist and how do you make money on Upwork where 99% of the work is remote (especially now)? Or are you a writer? Or a translator? Create a general profile for one of your skills and specialized profiles for the others...that could possibly earn you $ here.
