First of all, Abdul:

 

Data entry and digital marketing do not constitute a niche.

 

These are two essentially unreleated job niches.

 

Also, you can not complain about getting "low-paying projects" if you are focusing on data entry. Data entry is, by definition, an "entry-level" job niche. It mostly involves low-paying work.

 

Digital marketing can be quite sophisticated and high-paying. It can also be low-paying. But one thing that any real digital marketing expert would do to succeed would be to NOT promote themself as a data entry worker.

Abdul:

The problem is that you aren't really a digital marketer. You are not any kind of marketer. (If you were a marketer you would not post a profile using the blue "don't hire me" background in your profile photo. Although that is the least of your problems.)

 

Maybe you are learning how to use a particular tool that is used for digital marketing purposes. In that sense, you are more of a data entry worker.

 

I don't think you should promote yourself as a digital marketer until you actually know what the term means.

 

If you are learning how to use one or two particular software packages or systems, then your best bet may be to highlight those and learn those extremely well. Promote yourself as a specialist in those. That would lead to more success than simply listing a bunch of generic skills that you don't really have experience in and may not even know the meaning of.

Abdul, I suggest you also hide your Below Average test results on your Profile.

If you were a Client, Abdul, how excited would you be about a potential Freelancer with Below Average test results?

That's nice.

But does Upwork suggest those freelancers to clients who have failed some tests?
or it depends upon jobs and feedback.

Abdul -- Upwork is unlikely to recommend below-average Freelancers to potential clients, no matter how much you might wish it were so. Upwork is not a jobs-placement service nor does it serve as a de facto social agency.
