Hi,

   I am glad to be a part of upwork. Pleasent and healthy discussion is encouragng. To cater my newly started family, I have created  my profile. After reading suggestions, I have made changes.

 

1. I need a quick review of my profile and an ongoing kind advisory from a senior person.

2. I appreciate if I get any useful links/contacts for a long term work. I can add more about my profile on demand.

 

Thanking in anticipation. 

 

Yours truly,

 

Sammar A.

It is not recommended to offer a diverse and unrelated set of skills. It looks odd on your profile. It's as if you are screaming: I will do any of those! Hire me for anything! 

That devalues your profile and makes it look unprofessional. 

Focus on what you do best, and lose everything else.

You must be more specific. I don't know what a banking advisor does. 

Still a jumble of too many different things. Chose less. Be clear what services you provide. Examples. Adress your client. What can you do for him? 

Start by researching your competition. Take about 20 hours for research and crafting a much better profile. Don't come back before you do that thoroughly.

As a client, that is the main thing I look for when I hire freelancers:

 

I look for freelancers who post lots of different unrelated skills, and then I don't hire them.

 

The first word in your profile overview text is: "Free Lancer"

 

A couple of problems with that:

First of all, the word is spelled wrong.

Second: Every freelancer on Upwork is a freelancer. So you are wasting space, not telling us anything.

 

Your profile would be equally effective if you replaced "Free Lancer" with "I breathe oxygen!"

Dear Sir,

Thanks for your time and kind suggestion. Review start up was really weird. I have revised it. I appreciate if you, please, check for changes if any.

 

Yours truly,

You can't claim to be a writer and have errors in your headline, and many more in your text, which is not even long. 

Have you researched others as I recommended? Doesn't look like it.

May I request you to, please, review the changes. Your suggestion is amazing. 

 

Thanks and Regards
