I am new to Upwork for almost a week and was wondering if my profile is good enough for me to attract clients? I had submitted alot of proposals but have not received any replies thus far. May I know how long does it usually take for a client to get back to us? And how do we know if they had hired for the job?
Welcome any advices and feedbacks to improve myself on Upwork!
All I can say is that you need to be patient. Your first opportunity is coming soon. You can c the activity for the job in the right side of the proposal sheet. About your profile I'm not an expert but I wouldn't say "I only submit proposals for jobs that I can do best with reasonable price and works well with tight deadlines" it doesn't sound nice to me. Try to be easy going and nice.
Tailor your proposals for each client and make sure you show them you really know your work. Writing a good proposal is key. It took me a week from signing up to figure that out and get my first offer.
