My response rate hasnt been great- am i missing something on my profile?

Hi all,

 

I have been submitting proposals and not getting muhc of a response. I have tried a few different techniques with my proposals and working to imprvoing them, however, I just wanted to throw my profile out there and see if I am making any obvious or glaring missteps that I should resolve.

I have been withdrawing proposals after 20 days if I do not get a response.

 

Is there any advantage to doing this? Should i instead just leave them open until they expire?

Once you submit a proposal Ash S forget about it and move on to submitting proposals on other clients' projects unless the client comes back to you.

 

There is no reason to follow up or track any of your proposals in any way.

Hi Ash,

 

I'm sorry to hear you haven't been getting response to your proposals. Submitting proposals doesn't always guarantee that you will get hired or interviewed, but you shouldn't give up on sending proposals to potential clients. When you apply for jobs, make sure your proposal is well written and that you're absolutely qualified and certain of your ability to complete the job you're applying for.

 

You may want to check these great webinars to help you optimize your Upwork Profile for maximum exposure and drastically increases your chances of winning the best projects:

Thank you,

Did you know that some clients prolong their jobs beyond the standard 30 days.

By withdrawing you forgo the chance to be hired when they eventually come around.

You also forgo the free connects you're eligible for with every interview.
