Got my first client after trying for an year


After more than 75 proposals,I got my first client last month.


I was expecting that my profile will since shoot up but nothing of that sort has happened.


I submit customised proposals to every job in the range of 5-7 lines.


Suggestions are welcome

There is no reason to expect your profile to be "shooting up". It will always be difficult to find clients, not expecting that to change is your best strategy.

what you did for 1 year. and what you suggest to newcomers what  not to do

One thing I would advise people is to buy connects. Upwork is a business (your profile, that is), so there are expenses to help it survive and become sustainable. Connects is such an expense.


Also, you're not entitled to success. Everyone has a hard time finding new, quality clients.
