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
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.
