Sometimes clients send an invitation to all suggested freelancer and then just respond to 1 or 2.

Don't ever take a client for granted, even if they sent an invitation and always try to convince them to take you by sending them well thought out messages and solutions to their problems.

Even if they don't respond, they might read what you're writing and if you're good, they might respond to you after all!

Or they just re-thought their job post and don't want to hire anyone.

Me too. I received 13 invitations, declined some of them, and only 1 or 2 who replied my message.
Don't expect too much. Invited to interview doesn;t make me a special candidate. I prefer to focus on refining my skill so in the future i can increase my interview-to-hired rate.
