How competitive is the market on Upwork?

So I’ve recently made an account and all the rest of it. I’m travelling around at the moment without a laptop so I have not made any submissions as I would not be able to complete any work. I’m just curious though as to how competitive the market is? Specifically I’m a copywriter with limited experience (but experience nonetheless). I just want to hear people’s experiences in first joining and finding work really! A general discussion (and perhaps some advice for a newbie). Thank you very much.

A freelancer search shows 180k + Copywriters, of whom 160k + have never earned a single Dollar.

 

Oh and you created a client account, not a freelancr profile.

Very competitive.

 

Really only productive for the most serious people to make a go at it.

 

You already know that without a laptop or desktop computer, there is no way you can compete on Upwork as a copywriter.

Adding to what Preston said, you don't appear to have a profile - "all the rest of it" notwithstanding. Why don't you finish your travels and then come back and try again.
