Greetings,

It's been a while since I am sending proposals, unfortunately, no one is interviewing me. I have sent 50+ proposals out of which half of them are archived. I want to know the reasons, why is this so? , I am not able to find the solution to it, Can anyone help me with this. Thanks in advance.

If you made your Upwork profile 10 days ago, why does one of your cover letters tell them to check your odesk test scores? That's very odd. 

 

Some feedback: your proposals are generic and don't really tell me you have the skills or expertise to do the job. You also don't discuss your process of working on the job and how hiring you will benefit me, other than promises of quality and satisfaction, which are just generic and meaningless. 

 

I'm not trying to be mean, I just want you to understand the reality that very few, if any, clients will respond to these proposals. You're in a saturated field, so you can't just say "Hi, yes, I do SEO, hire me." Which is essentially the gist of your proposals. I suggest you search through the forum for all the proposal writing tips that have been given many times over and try a complete rewrite of your proposals. 

 

Hope this helps.
