I hope you all will be fine in a difficult time. I need your help to get to win the job. I create an Upwork profile at the start of 2020 and provide writing and proofreading service. Before this, I write 400+ articles for local writing agencies in the last 4 years so, I have much experience.
Still, I applied on 100+ jobs but only win 4 jobs in starting days. Kindly anyone guides me on what I should be doing best for winning the job.
I am trying every time to get knowledge on any platform but still no success.
I hope the Upwork community will help me and review my profile description.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Professional content writers should not have any grammatical errors on their profile. I noticed a few on yours - even within the first paragraph!
* Rewrite your profile so there are NO grammatical errors
* Customize every proposal to the job post and without grammatical errors
Keep trying. There are loads of clients looking for $5 an hour content writers. I wouldn't want to work with any of them, but they're out there...
I suggest checking out this Community thread to help you get started along with the Freelancing Resources board in which you'll find plenty of articles to help you with writing proposals, setting your rates, negotiating with clients, enhancing your profile, and so on.
I don't want to sound harsh, but I tried to read your portfolio example, and I could not make any sense of it. I get that it is about some glasses or something when you work on a computer all day, but the words don't make sense. You can't write or proofread in English, and if a client ever has your work checked by an English native, your feedback will be brutal.
If you want to find success on upwork, write in your native language and stay away from English.
Thank you, Martina
You tried to point out my mistakes.
I trying most of the time even I am changing my portfolio every week but cannot get significant results.
Can you help me to make a strong portfolio of writing and proofreading?
Then maybe I will succeed to win job.
I am waiting for your kind response.
