Hi Sajeb,

 

I'm not an expert but first things first your account is private which means no clients can view your profile! and you may consider raising your hourly rate a little bit to reflect the value of your work

donotreply@upwork.com is a dead email address for weekly and announcement emails. If you send anything to it, there is no one to read it. It is a publishing address in a way. I am also having a hard time. I would like to know what my competitors are bidding.

Hi Tammara,

 

Don't give up. Keep applying to jobs that suit your skill set.

Initially, the client sees the first two lines of your profile.  That's valuable real estate - make it count.  The fact that you are a student isn't important.  Highlight your strongest skills - clients want to hire experienced professionals.  Re-frame your profile to sell your abilities.  

 

Create a new title to highlight specific job categories, ie writing, customer service, VA.

 

Also, be sure that your proposals address the specific job opportunity and how you can help the client.

 

Good luck and don't give up!

I have re-written m up work and have recently changed my name header but I am still not getting any jobs. I keep sending proposals but I am not getting any jobs again. Can anyone tell me what it is that I am doing wrong? I am not going to give up!

Hide every single test score that is below average! and you say you are an academic writer but don't have any samples on your profile.

Tammara,

 

There is a lot of "I" going on in your profile.  Try taking those points and putting them into a bullet-style list that showcases your skills instead.  As it reads right now you are screaming "I, I, I" instead of really telling the client what makes you good at your job.

 

Something along the lines of:

 

I have x years of experience in x and x fields and provide x(quality, punctuality, etc.) to my clients. 

 

My skills include:

x

x

x

x

 

Try to remember that the first two sentences in your profile are going to be what the client is able to see off the bat.  Those two sentences need to make them want to read more and that "more" should be very clearly defined.

 

Also, take out the "best and lowest rates".  As others will tell you, this is going to make you scammer bait and you certainly don't want to waste time having to decline time-wasting invitations for every captcha job out there.
