Hi. Have you ever thought if your cover letter has something to do with it? Do you have a preconceived standard letter proven to be effective or do you just write it anew from scratch every time?
Okay. Freelance working is, most of the time, like a roller coaster. Ups and downs are part of the game. And seasons play a major role too. August is a vacation month, many companies have a summer break, and that's perhaps the reason for a decrease on your assignments.
Just hang on and, in the meantime, re-check your cover letter to make it flawless.
I have been a freelancer for over 8 years so I was thinking instead of working on the sites that I have been working to try on up work.
But you are right August is a vacation month,
